Stocks discussed: (NYSE:WMT) (NYSE:SI) (CSE:KASH)

 

CNBC reports that retail giant Walmart (NYSE:WMT) may be preparing to enter the metaverse and create its own cryptocurrency and NFTs (non-fungible tokens). This is suggested by the company’s having “filed several new trademarks late last month that indicate its intent to make and sell virtual goods,” and its claim that “it would offer users a virtual currency, as well as NFTs,” in a particular filing. The CNBC article quotes trademark attorney Josh Gerben, who said:

 

″[The filings are] super intense. There’s a lot of language in these, which shows that there’s a lot of planning going on behind the scenes about how they’re going to address cryptocurrency, how they’re going to address the metaverse and the virtual world that appears to be coming or that’s already here.”

 

Silvergate Capital Corporation (NYSE:SI) has shared its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021. The Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN), which the company created to allow digital currency and institutional investor clients to send U.S. dollars 24/7, handled $219.2 billion of U.S. dollar transfers in Q4 of 2021 – up 35 percent from $162 billion in Q3 of 2021, and an increase of 270 percent over the $59.2 billion posted in the fourth quarter of 2020. Silvergate’s President and CEO, Alan Lane, said:

 

"2021 was another year of significant growth and momentum for Silvergate, driven by strong demand for our digital currency solutions powered by the SEN. Total deposits grew to $14.3 billion at the end of 2021 and our full year net income more than tripled compared to last year, reflecting growth in both fee income and net interest income.”

 

Intellabridge Technology Corp. (CSE:KASH) has announced a collaboration with financial infrastructure provider Prime Trust to “enable Intellabridge customers to on-ramp from US Dollars into decentralized finance (DeFi) and earn a 10% stable interest rate on their Kash savings accounts.” Intellabridge CEO John Eagleton said:

 

"We're proud to work with Prime Trust which offers best-in-class financial infrastructure for fintech and digital asset clients globally. This collaboration opens up the remarkable returns seen in decentralized finance by offering customers an on-ramp that makes it easy to move assets from traditional financial institutions like Bank of America and Wells Fargo, and exchange to USD stablecoins which can be deposited into Kash's high earnings savings accounts."

Defense Metals Corp. (TSXV:DEFN) (OTCQB:DFMTF) has announced a reinforcement of its leadership team, following on from the 100 percent acquisition of the Wicheeda Rare Earth Element (REE) Property. This includes the appointment of Luisa Moreno as President of Defense Metals, and the nomination of William Bird to the company’s Board of Directors. CEO Craig Taylor commented:

 

"With the recent completion of a positive and robust PEA, and 100% acquisition of the Wicheeda Project, Defense Metals is entering into a new phase of development, and we are delighted to have the extensive rare earth expertise of Dr. Moreno as President and Dr. Bird as a Director. As President, Dr. Moreno's unique combination of capital markets and strategic minerals specialization will be invaluable as the broader market recognizes the significance of the Wicheeda REE project in the context of North American and global critical minerals space."

 

Rio Tinto Group (NYSE:RIO) has announced its fourth quarter production results for 2021. Highlights include the production of 319.7 million tonnes of iron ore in Pilbara, 54.3 million tonnes of bauxite, and 3.2 million tonnes of aluminum. Jakob Stausholm, the company’s CEO, said:

 

"In the fourth quarter we set a new direction for the company and announced a number of partnerships focused on decarbonising the value chain for our products, including green steel. We also entered into a binding agreement to acquire the Rincon lithium project in Argentina, which is strongly aligned with our strategy. These actions will ensure we continue to deliver attractive returns to shareholders, invest in sustaining and growing our portfolio, and progress our ambition to net-zero carbon emissions."

 

AngloGold Ashanti Limited (NYSE:AU) has completed the acquisition of Corvus Gold Inc. The former’s CEO and Executive Director, Alberto Calderon, commented:

 

“The acquisition of Corvus provides AngloGold Ashanti with compelling, district-wide consolidation in Nevada. The combination of Corvus’ assets along with our own neighbouring targets, including Silicon, Merlin and Rhyolite, provides the opportunity for the Beatty District to become a potential Tier 1 asset with first production in approximately the next three years. We look forward to further engagement with local stakeholders as we develop the Beatty District.”

 

Alamos Gold Inc. (NYSE:AGI) has reported its fourth quarter and full year 2021 production results. Highlights include an annual production of 457,200 ounces of gold – up seven percent from 2020, and record revenues of $824 million for the year. The company’s President and CEO, John A. McCluskey, said:

 

“With stronger production in the fourth quarter, we met our revised full year 2021 guidance. This was driven by strong performances through the year from both Young-Davidson and Island Gold, with the former achieving record mining rates and free cash flow. This offset a challenging year at Mulatos as we work through a transitional phase with higher costs until La Yaqui Grande comes online in the second half of 2022. This temporary increase in costs at Mulatos and industry-wide inflation are the key drivers of higher consolidated costs in 2022, though we expect a significant improvement in costs in 2023 and beyond.”

Management Commentary

“The third quarter of fiscal 2022 was highlighted by record revenue of $48.2 million, driven by seamless integration of our rapidly growing, high-margin acquisitions and our evolution into a truly national brand,” said David Massey, Chief Executive Officer of Solar Integrated Roofing Corporation. “The rapid pace of our acquisitions, partnerships and organic sales growth has enabled this incredible record revenue achievement, and we aim towards substantially exceeding our fairly conservative guidance for $100 million in revenue in the twelve months ended May 31, 2022.  However, this is only a fraction of the run-rate I believe we can achieve by the end of this calendar year with significant sequential growth expected throughout CY2022.  It is impossible for me to overstate what a triumphant accomplishment this quarter represents, serving as both a milestone and a turning point in the company’s history.  We continue to focus on integration of our acquired companies, allowing us to capture the full revenue lifecycle of our customers while bringing new synergies and efficiencies across the SIRC family of companies.

 

“Our prominent national brand and accomplishments have helped to attract new partnerships across a wide variety of industries, utilizing our products and expertise across solar, battery backup, EV charging and roofing installation.  From EV power charging stations, to powering water harvesting products, to enabling cleaner poultry farming – our diverse array of end-customers continues to amaze us as they identify exciting, unique use cases for our clean energy solutions.

 

“As we transition into CY2022, we look forward to completing the next phase of our journey by implementing a name change to SolarEV and a planned ticker change to POWR. While our record quarter clearly demonstrates proven success in solar, we intend to redouble our efforts to become an equally dominant, national player in the EV charging space, with an eye towards exponential, dual-industry growth and an improved focus on generating shareholder value.

 

“Looking ahead, empowered by a recent equity purchase agreement with Arbiter Bank, we are setting off on the next leg in our acquisition journey. We have identified several extremely promising candidates with healthy potential at attractive prices that require no dilution whatsoever to our shareholders.

 

“Finally, we will continue and improve upon our ongoing efforts to engage with our shareholders through our frequent Q&A events and presentations. As CEO, I have never been more excited to see what the future holds for our beloved company. I would like to personally thank each and every one of our valued shareholders for their support in making our successful transition to an industry powerhouse possible,” concluded Massey.

 

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 964% to $48.2 million, as compared to revenue of $4.5 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by the Company’s continued acquisitions, as well as continued organic growth across the SIRC family of companies.

 

Gross profit increased 2,372% to $25.2 million, or 52% of total revenues, in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $1.0 million, or 22% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter.

 

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $7.1 million, as compared to total operating expenses of $1.6 million for the same year-ago quarter. The increase was mainly attributable to increased operational scale, driven by a series of acquisitions made in the prior preceding year.

 

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $18.4 million, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted common share, as compared to a net loss of $0.6 million, or $(0.00) per basic and diluted common share, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.5 million as of November 30, 2021, as compared to $10.3 million at February 28, 2021.
