Delta 8 THC - June 2021

If you are looking to buy Delta 8 THC and interested in trying it, there are two things you need to be aware of before doing so. There is currently legislation pending in Congress that could make it illegal to buy or sell any marijuana-related products such as THC. There have also been instances in which Delta 8 THC has been found in breast milk. The question is whether or not the plant has dangerous side effects that outweigh the benefits of buying and using the product? This article will address both issues.

Officially, Delta 8 THC is perfectly legal! Here's a quick rundown of the federal law which Delta 8 THC falls under: The 2021 Farm Bill makes most medical-related cannabis-related compounds, and so-called Cannabinoid derivative products, legal in the United States. However, in order to be considered as a federally controlled substance, the final draft of the bill required that all cannabinoids are classified as Schedule II drugs - which includes all members of the delta 9-thc chemical family. This schedule is lower than the classification, the Controlled Substances Act places on most other types of drugs, meaning that cannabis would be viewed as having fewer risks than most prescription or over-the-counter medications.

To this end, if you plan on growing your own cannabis and want to use Delta 8 THC gummies, don't be worried about violating any laws or regulations. However, it's important that you understand the federal law at the present time, as it is easy to change the landscape in the near future. While Delta 9 THC gummies won't be going anywhere soon, you can get all the information you need to start growing right away by following the tips outlined in this article.

It's true that Delta 9 THC cannabis products may not be available at the local supermarket. However, new technology has made it possible for consumers to grow cannabis plants using indoor hydroponic equipment. By utilizing this equipment, anyone can cultivate high-quality cannabis without worrying about purchasing large quantities of cannabis buds at the local store. Instead, hydroponic farmers can provide consumers with top quality cannabis products that are already grown in an indoor greenhouse. These products can be sent to any location in the world, wherever it's legal, as long as the plant is legalized. After all, cultivating cannabis plants indoors makes it extremely easy to control the environment inside the home, so long as the grower follows some safety precautions.

Skillsoft goes Private. E-Learning Market has Matured.

Today Skillsoft announced that the company is being acquired by a private equity firm for approximately $1.1 billion.  This acquisition price reflects a 14% premium over the public share price and a price to sales ratio of 3.3, which is quite high for a company of this size.

Why did this private equity firm decide to acquire the company?  Essentially the company is already very highly valued, yet its market has matured.  I actually had conversations with several of the buyers over the last few weeks so let me give you some perspectives.

1.  Skillsoft is a very healthy company financially.  The company’s revenues of $328 Million are growing modestly (16% last year) but its after-tax profit is over 15% – so essentially the company is a “cash cow.”   Skillsoft is the dominant market leader in packaged e-learning content and the new owners now have a strong franchise from which to either cut costs (e.g. reduce the company’s high cost of sales) or acquire other content companies to grow its footprint.

2.  Skillsoft has very strong market presence.  The company has thousands of customers throughout the world, and offers them corporate e-learning courseware, online books and publications (from the Books 24×7 acquisition), online videos, leadership resources, and even a low-end learning management system.  This footprint on the market is very valuable and can be leveraged as the company develops or acquires new products.  It takes many years to build a customer base like this, so there is a tremendous amount of intrinsic value here.

3.  Skillsoft has a tremendous asset library.  The Skillsoft and Books 24×7 content library, is one of the largest professional development content libraries in the corporate learning landscape.  While some of this content is somewhat dated, and the company must continuously refresh highly volatile areas like IT, many of these titles are timeless – they will be relevant and useful for years to come.  This means that the Skillsoft owners can further leverage, license, and sell this content and the margins are very high.

4.  Skillsoft has a very powerful technology platform.  While most companies do not consider Skillport an enterprise-class learning management system, it actually has many very advanced features which are hard to build.  The company built an extensive API which allows corporate buyers or other vendors to license Skillsoft content, the company hosts and delivers a wide range of media, and Skillsoft is just about to announce a very exciting social networking component to its offering.  The platform itself represents both a barrier to entry and a strong potential revenue source going forward.

5.  Skillsoft has a very seasoned leadership team.  In fact, the Skillsoft leadership team is one of the most senior teams in the training industry.  Chuck Moran, Lee Ritze, Jerry Nine, Mark Townsend, and John Ambrose have been in this industry for many years and together make up a brain trust of savvy, experienced professionals who understand the dynamics of this market.  Skillsoft is the most profitable of any e-learning company and has managed to weather the rapid transitions in this market over the last 10 years.

What’s Next and What this Means

Let me speculate on a few things that may happen next.

In general, when private equity firms acquire companies they do so to bring new ideas, new capital, and fresh ideas to the business.  They see an opportunity to unlock more value in Skillsoft and you can bet they will work hard to exploit it.  This often includes restructuring, acquisitions, change in market strategy, and sometimes a breakup.

In this case Skillsoft is a highly profitable company that must evolve its business to grow.  The packaged e-learning market has matured and Skillsoft is looking for new, growth markets to enter.  While businesses now consider e-learning a “staple” of their training needs, the market is somewhat saturated and the adoption rate for catalog e-learning content is not high.  Companies want more dynamic content and new media, industry-specific content, high-value titles (like leadership development programs and expert-branded programs), and the ability to leverage their content libraries for user-developed content.

All these needs represent new opportunities for Skillsoft – along with the opportunity to expand “down market” and sell to smaller emerging companies.

There are also many industry markets Skillsoft could explore.  Each industry has its own library of specific compliance or professional content needs.  Law firms, accounting firms, healthcare providers, and many other industries need packaged off-the-shelf content.  Skillsoft could acquire and grow in these vertical markets.  Of course Skillsoft could also try to acquire its few remaining competitors:  ElementK, Mindleaders, and a few of the other global e-learning players.

The company could enter the LMS business in a more formal way.   LMS market is nearly a $1 Billion market today, and with its huge footprint Skillsoft could offer a low-end LMS which would be used by many of its mid-market companies and many departments within its current client base.   This represents new incremental revenue for the company and would position Skillsoft well for the slow and steady adoption of informal learning as a core of corporate training.

As a leader in the e-learning industry, Skillsoft has continually been a company to watch.  This latest move will bring exciting opportunities to Skillsoft and the training industry as a whole.

    Josh, thanks for the great overview! You comments about how healthy the company support why the private equity companies would want to buy it, but no why the company would want to sell itself. Any further ideas on that?
