Using Treasury Management For Cannabis Financing

Traditional Project Funding Strategies Do Not Work For Cannabis

Traditional Project Funding Strategies Do Not Work For Cannabis
Financial experts describing the state of the Financial Markets always use the phrase “Investor Confidence”. No one ever uses the phrase “Borrower Confidence”.

This simple truth represents the key to understanding how to obtain the financing that your business requires. Of course, a well drafted, well thought out business idea and business plan are required but in order to truly ensure initial investor/lender interest to facilitate your funding needs, companies seeking capital need to create “Investor Confidence” by demonstrating that the capital provided is safe.

Traditionally, posting collateral belonging to the borrowing entity, the individual owners or both usually does this. In addition, the investor/lender often requires a high interest rate and/or a substantial percentage of the borrowing entity’s equity. Not only does this often prove untenable or unattractive to the borrower but more importantly, it fails to separate you from the masses of other companies also seeking financing. It is axiomatic that attracting initial interest to your project greatly increases the odds that financing can be achieved. The ultimate question for the business owner seeking capital to answer is ”How do you attract that initial interest?”

The funding of Cannabis and Cannabis related companies compounds this problem because of the unique risks that Cannabis faces. The Cannabis Sector represents the classic high-risk high-reward investment opportunity. Cannabis is a growing industry that intrigues many investors with its potential of high returns. But along with the potential of high returns comes the concerns of high risk. Cannabis has risk factors that are unique to its industry that must be addressed by any Cannabis Company looking to raise capital to any interested Cannabis Investor. The four (4) categories of risk in investing in Cannabis are as follows:

1. Legal Restrictions;
2. Valuation;
3. Dilution;
4. Commoditization.

Because of these additional risks factors in the Cannabis Sector, traditional financing methods for Cannabis Companies without risk mitigation that specifically address these categories of risk are not an effective method to raise the capital required.

The Solution
Bach Capital Management (“BCM”) is pleased to be able to facilitate the acquisition of financing for Cannabis and Cannabis-related companies through our ability to create investment grade collateral to support these capital raises through the BCM Treasury Management Investment Strategy as a Risk Mitigator (“TMIS Risk Mitigator”). The TMIS Risk Mitigator is the only risk management/ risk mitigation strategy available today that effectively addresses all of categories of risk associated with Cannabis investing and changes investing in the Cannabis Sector from “high risk – high reward” to “low risk – high reward”. The inclusion of the TMIS Risk Mitigator into the capital raising efforts of companies in the Cannabis Sector takes the risk out of the investment for investors while at the same time relieving these companies from incurring substantial cost or administrative burden allowing them more time and resources to grow their companies to their full potential.

What We Are and What We Are Not
