Rogue One, Inc. (OTCMKTS: ROAG) is a distiller focused on tequila. It posted a pivotal filing this month. The company filed an 8K detailing updated numbers from the quarter ending March 31, 2021; the first quarter including the company’s operating subsidiary Human Brands International, a ground-to-glass spirit and hospitality company with a focus on tequila. The filing also included several years of historic balance sheets from Human Brands.
The 8K confirmed through its Human Brands acquisition ROAG has added:
- $520,761 in revenues for the quarter ending March 31, 2021 (prior to the acquisition ROAG was pre-revenue)
- ROAG now inherits several supply contracts, ranging from 5,000 liters per month to 200,000 liters per month.
- ROAG boasts over $18 million in assets
These numbers only account for the quarter ending March 31, 2021. There are several other filings expected as ROAG works back toward current status and upgrading off of the expert market.
With the acquisition of Human Brands, ROAG is in a great position to become a major player in the tequila industry. The white-label tequila company owns and manages 400,000 agave plants. Agave prices have been on the rise since 2016, up 694%. This gives ROAG a leg up over competitors. Not only does it insulate itself from rising prices, but it can potentially profit through sales of the crop.
The robust 8k is extremely detailed, and has the kind of information you would find in a Fortune 500 filing, read the full report here.
BrewBilt Manufacturing Inc. (OTCMKTS: BBRW) is an ancillary brewer play, recently CEO and Chairman Jef Lewis made a statement on the bullishness of the craft brew industry.
Chairman Jef Lewis stated, “We know that any talented brewer stands proudly behind every pint of great beer, and were honored that so many brewers use BrewBilt to stand behind them. We learned our craft in the Pacific Northwest and now share 15 years of brewery equipment knowledge and experience with customers throughout the world.
Lets face it, investors are leery when considering the current economy. The wait and see investor should realize that in 2008 the craft beer industry outperformed most industries. The craft beer market has proven to be recession proof over the past two decades, especially during COVID when BrewBilt first went public and placed more than $3.5 million in sales and manufactured and delivered 12 brewhouses to customers all over the country. With three years of branding, the company is now working with over 40 new customers who are building new breweries that represent over $11 million in sales for the company. This number is growing with expected projections to be favorable for our shareholders. Further, we are quoting more jobs than ever before.”
Lewis’ company, BrewBilt is one of the only California companies that custom designs, hand crafts, and integrates processing, fermentation and distillation processing systems for the craft beer, cannabis and hemp industries using best-in-class American stainless steel and built by highly skilled local welders.
