NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc. (OTCQB:MRMD) reported its second quarter 2017 financials in its recently filed 10Q, which was highlighted by quarterly revenue growth that exceeded 100% for the 11th consecutive quarter. Revenue increased by 150.4% to a record $1,621,057 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $647,440 in the prior year’s period. Net income in the second quarter of 2017 increased to $504,805 versus $39,047 in the prior year’s period. These significant increases were primarily due to the company’s cannabis clients generating a robust 74% increase in their sales under MariMed’s management.
“MariMed has assisted licensed cannabis clients in five states in developing state of the art cultivation, production, and dispensing facilities,” stated Robert Fireman, CEO of MariMed Inc. “Under MariMed’s direction, these facilities are now generating ongoing revenue streams as they move beyond their initial start-up phases and truly begin to thrive. We’re seeing greater acceptance of cannabis nationwide, which is translating to more sales from patients being served by our medical cannabis clients. As more states implement medical and recreational legal cannabis programs, MariMed expects to have more opportunities to write winning license applications and, in turn, develop and manage the best facilities in the country.”
MariMed’s revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased 119.7% to $2,771,776 versus $1,261,896 in the prior year period. Net income swung from a loss of $17,561 for the six months ended June 30, 2016, to a profit of $614,191 for the first half of 2017.
“Our business model and best practices have been proven to be replicable and scalable,” noted Jon Levine, MariMed’s CFO. “Our margins are increasing, as expected, by economies of scale we are realizing with the growth of our clients’ businesses under MariMed’s managed services. We have medical cannabis facilities under development in Massachusetts and Maryland. As these facilities become fully operational in early 2018 and with the expansion of our Kalm Fusion™ branded licensing program, we expect to see ongoing improvements in our future results.”
