PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaya Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:KAYS), announced today that it has released its quarterly report for the period ending September 30, 2015. During this quarter the Company operated its Medical Marijuana Facility in Portland, transitioned the Portland location to a recreational outlet, opened a second store in Salem (also recreational) and dramatically upgraded its consolidated Grow. Additionally, within the Management Discussion and Analysis of Operations section of the 10-Q is an analysis of the first thirty days of recreational sales as experienced at the Company’s two retail marijuana locations in Portland and Salem, Oregon.
October 2015: The first thirty-one days of limited recreational marijuana sales
Although we are dealing with a very short snapshot of the recreational market, the 500%+ increase in total sales for the company and nearly 400% increase in same store revenues at our established Hawthorne location is consistent with our thesis that the recreational marijuana market is much more lucrative for the company than medical sales.
Additionally, if you factor that the current rules permit us to sell only “limited recreational sales” (flower only and no more than 7 grams to any individual per day) we are confident that revenues will increase again once our recreational customers can purchase larger amounts of flower and buy additional products, such as extracts, concentrates and edibles.
“This has been an incredible period of growth for us,” stated Craig Frank, CEO of Kaya Holdings. “We have effectively expanded our operations, dramatically increased revenues, and constructed a strong foundation upon which additional growth will be developed. We believe sales will continue to grow as our Salem based Marijuana Superstore gains more market share and the rules expand customer buying options. The true promise of this industry is beginning to show itself.”
