LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xtraction Services Holding Corp. ("XS" or the "Company") (CSE:XS), an equipment leasing and extraction solutions company, is pleased to provide an update regarding the Company’s existing lease portfolio, the commencement of new significant lease agreements as well as upcoming revenue growth initiatives. Additionally, XS is pleased to announce the completion of its reverse merger with Caracara Silver Inc. and has commenced trading on the CSE under the ticker symbol "XS".
While recent equity market volatility has been challenging for cannabis companies, their reduced access to capital has translated into increased demand for the Company’s leasing solutions. Many operators now lack the necessary capital to expand operations, achieve economies of scale, or deliver on existing expectations. With fewer options available, customers are now seeking alternative sources of capital and XS is well-positioned to provide financing solutions for cannabis and hemp companies to meet their business needs. The Company currently has substantial demand for its products and is aggressively working to add new customers.
“Cost of capital is steadily increasing and conventional financing solutions are becoming increasingly scarce for cannabis and hemp companies in today’s environment. The Company’s leasing solutions provide customers with mission-critical equipment to operate and grow their businesses. With the reverse merger now complete, we feel we are uniquely positioned to aggressively grow our business in the current environment,” said David Kivitz, CEO of XS.
The Company’s diversified revenue model, which includes equipment sales, royalty income, sale-leasebacks and structured lease agreements, has seen a surge in inbound interest in recent months. With the funds now available from the recently completed RTO, XS is now in a position to fund two recently completed agreements as well as actively pursue new leads to add to its portfolio.
XS’ largest signed lease to date is with Puritix LLC (“Puritix"), a Kentucky-based CBD processor, and is expected to come online in Q4 2019. The activation of the Puritix lease is forecasted to contribute the greater of (i) its production volume-based payment; or (ii) USD$50,000 monthly (USD$600,000 annually).
Additional fourth quarter revenue will be recognized from the completion of a recently signed lease agreement with a new CBD processor in South Carolina. Commencement of the new agreement is forecasted to contribute USD$22,000 monthly (USD$264,000 annually) to leasing revenues.
Lastly, the Company has been working with multiple equipment providers to supply customized leasing solutions to their end-user customers. In addition to focusing on identifying clients with equipment leasing requirements, XS has partnered with manufacturers who already have inbound interest for equipment from customers who require leasing options. This new strategic initiative is expected to significantly reduce customer acquisition costs, expand its network of equipment vendors, and radically increase our potential customer pipeline. The Company looks forward to announcing the names of its vendor partners in the coming months.
