What now for Gage Roads Brewing?

Gage Roads Brewing has an excellent balance sheet, with zero debt and $5.6 million in the bank. The company’s enterprise valuation (market cap less cash plus debt) stands at roughly $57 million at a 9.4 cent share price.

A closing above 10 cents per share on a monthly basis could indicate a change in trend. Significant support sits around the 7 cent region.

The company is focused on building brand awareness by selling to Optus Stadium, Fringe World, Rugby 7s and other events. If it can keep expanding its product range and building its brand in the months ahead, with a flexible balance sheet, there’s plenty of growth on offer. I’d like to see a few acquisitions to drive revenue and deliver growth for shareholders.
