MSRT Stock Rating And Overall Company Value
In the two year span between 2014 and 2015, MSRT reports revenue of $223,000 but like most new companies they had to borrow money. Their revenue for that two year time span was offset by $10.9 million in losses.
MSRT may face their largest setback after denial of their application to trade on Nasdaq. CEO Isaac Deitrich felt the disappointment caused shareholders to lose faith in the company.
The loss of a potential Nasdaq profile cost MSRT a lot of potential investors but they went straight back to work. The company is set to launch a stronger business platform for dispensary owners that they say will match those of Leafly and Weedmaps.
MSRT currently trades as a penny stock and closed the market yesterday March 9, 2017 at $0.82 per share. You can see in the two year graph that overall trading declines with only a couple of high peaks.
MSRT Downsized As A Result Of Debt Default
As a result of the Nasdaq listing failure and other setbacks, MassRoots cut full time employee numbers nearly in half. They also upgraded to newer software that will save over one hundred thousand dollars per year.
CEO Deitrich is on record saying that many debtors have taken company stock in lieu of payment but others declined. He feels that the company will see strong earnings in upcoming quarters and the company will make good on its debt. No reports of any action by lenders against MSRT exist so far.
Thoughts On Investing In MSRT
MassRoots is a company to keep an eye on and an ear out. Investors may want to be ready to move on MSRT stock but the time doesn’t seem right just yet. Once they start competing for earnest with WeedMaps the game will be on but MSRT still has a ways to go.
The debt default causes hesitation on immediate investment. So does the sheer amount of lending over a two year period without any substantial revenue. If MSRT can pull part of the customer base from WeedMaps and Leafly, they should start to show more revenue and put dent in some of their debt. We’re keeping a lookout until that happens.
