Continued strong growth in Q3; chg.
Topic: Cantourage reported preliminary Q3 figures with significant sales
growth and notable EBITDA improvements. The planned abolishment of the
narcotic drug status of medical cannabis in Q1 2024e should further drive
patient numbers and sales growth going forward.
Q3 sales grew by 79% yoy to € 6.1m (9M: +85% yoy to € 17.2m). At the same
time, EBITDA came in at € -0.6m, a notable improvement compared to last
year’s figure (€ -1.2m), 9M with € 0.4m EBITDA loss. The discrepancy to our
old Q3 estimates (€ 7.3m sales and EBITDA break-even) was driven by delays
in the approval of new production facilities, which offer significantly
higher throughput rates but also weaker demand at the beginning of the
The confirmed FY23 guidance (high double-digit percentage sales growth
while reaching EBITDA break-even) points towards continued strong growth as
well as further significant EBITDA improvement during Q4. Above all, this
should be carried by the ongoing ramp-up, i.e. a gradually increasing
number of fully onboarded cultivators i.e. having a product deployed at
Regulatory tailwinds to materialize towards the end of Q1 2024e. Medical
cannabis is still a fairly young market in Germany (approved for
therapeutical purposes since 2017), which still records low adoption rates
amongst suitable patients, largely as a result of complex prescription
processes that potential patients have to go through. With the 'Cannabis
Act', which should become effective towards the end of Q1 2024 (eNuW), this
should materially change as getting a prescription for cannabis should
become as easy as getting one for ibuprofen 600. Through this, medical
cannabis could also become part and benefit from the German e-script
universe, which just launched in July this year.
Cantourage should be well prepared to benefit from this thanks to its broad
global supplier network with more than 60 grower partners, its own
telemedicine platform, telecan°, and a growing distribution network across
Europe. The company looks set to grow sales at a 59% CAGR (2022-25e) while
at the
same time reaching a high single-digit EBITDA margins thanks to the
resulting operating leverage.
Reiterate BUY with a new € 11 PT (old: € 12.5) based on DCF.
