The Alkaline Water Company (TSX|OTC: WTER) (PROFILE)
- The Alkaline Water Company Achieved record quarterly sales of over $8.6M – a 78% increase YOY
- Launched CBD-Infused Beverage Division to capitalize on the potential $600 Million US market for Marijuana-infused beverages (Cannacord Genuity)
- Expanded National Distribution by over 7,500 stores, making it available in all 50 states 47,000 retail locations, including top national grocery retailers Walmart, Kroger, Safeway-Albertsons and CVS.
today announced some very strong results in their second fiscal quarter ending Sept 30, 2018 including a 78% year over year increase in sales of over $8.6M
Those sales numbers are very impressive on their own, but when you look at what else they managed to set up operationally over the second quarter there’s even more reason to take a closer look at this growth story.
They announced their A88 Infused Beverage Division, including hemp based CBD-infused beverages and signed an exclusive licensing deal with American Nutritional Products to produce them.
That is in addition to adding 7,500 more retail outlets, bringing them to over 47,000 locations in all 50 states.
So they are already seeing record year over year sales with their current proprietary Alkaline Water products, while fully setting themselves up to capitalize on the marijuana-infused beverage market, which Cannacord Genuity
estimates at a potential of $600 Million in the US alone in the next 4 years.
The difference here is that unlike other beverage companies that state their interest in this huge market, The Alkaline Water Company already has:
- A licensing and production deal in place with American Nutritional Products to produce and Develop CBD Water
- National Distribution to over 47,000 retail locations
- Record sales of their flagship Alkaline Water with great brand awareness
The Alkaline Water Co. continues growing and setting up for huge success in the future, and that is why it’s our top pick in the CBD Infused Beverage Sector.
