Pacific Ventures Group Inc (OTCMKTS: PACV) is making a steady move northbound and is quickly attracting some big players on the OTCQB looking for a winner in overall rough markets. PACV certainly has a lot going for it, the stock was trading at $0.70 this time last year and recently reversed off $0.011 lows after 12 months of steady declines popping to $0.111 overnight showing serious spring in its step before a brief dip below $0.03 and is now northward bound, with fast growing volume and legions of new shareholders jumping on board. PACV is a revenues powerhouse reporting record Q1 results of $10.4 million up 43% from Q1, 2021. Gross margins were up 91% to a record $1.7 million driven by operational improvements. The Company recently reported its annual revenues in 2021 increased 39% to a record $42.0 million, compared to $30.2 million in 2020, a year in which the Company completed a 1:500 reverse stock split.
PACV has a very tight share structure and small float, there are 43,566,072 total shares outstanding however 30,359,008 are restricted leaving just 13,207,064 free trading PACV on the market worth $255,000. Part of what fueled the most recent PACV drop to new 52-week lows of $0.0111 was restricted shares becoming unrestricted which are now free trading; at least 3 million shares PACV had the legend removed and are now free trading just over the past month, however this does not affect the overall OS. This has created a significant market opportunity; 2021 revenues of $42 million up 39% from the year before and a record Q1, 2022 as well as expected continued rapid growth should be enough to bring the spotlight on PACV. The stock is topping 5 million shares traded per day with just 13 million free trading PACV shares available so this is the kind of situation that can get explosive quickly.

Last week Pacific Ventures announced first quarter 2022 results reporting revenues increased 43% to $10.4 million over Q1, 2021 and Q2 gross margin increased 91% to a record $1.7 million driven by operational improvements. Gross profit margin was 16.2% in the first quarter of 2022, representing an improvement of 40 bps from the same year-ago quarter.
Pacific Ventures plans to relaunch Snöbar production and distribution by partnering with third-party manufacturers and co-packers, and with third-party distributors that can sell Snöbar products to high-end restaurants, resorts, cruise lines and hotels worldwide. Initially, the focus will be on establishing major accounts in four core markets consisting of Southern California, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Miami. The larger vision is to sell products in grocery stores such as Kroger, Wal-Mart and others, and thereafter to begin a national marketing program to all U.S. retailers. It is essentially a top-down marketing plan where products are placed with the largest retailer then trickle down to the smallest seller in each market area. Because Seaport Meat Company of America can efficiently add new product lines, it is expected that this will expand the distribution of Pacific Ventures’ San Diego Farmers Outlet and SnoBar product line, thereby accelerating Pacific Ventures’ revenue growth
The Company plans to grow through acquisitions of similar meat and food processing/distributing companies located within the Southwest. The Company has identified and is currently speaking with a few key opportunities. PACV plans to acquire food production and distribution businesses that will help the Company grow its food, beverage and alcohol-related products businesses. Management continues to engage in preliminary discussions with potential investors in order to properly fund potential acquisitions.
Earlier this year PACV engaged international investor relations specialists MZ Group (“MZ”) to lead a comprehensive strategic investor relations and financial communications program across all key markets. MZ Group will work closely with Pacific Ventures management to develop and implement a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the Company’s visibility throughout the investment community. The campaign will highlight how Pacific Ventures is rapidly gaining market share among food and beverage distributors by leveraging its diverse portfolio of operating subsidiaries to service increasing demand and evolving preferences from consumers.
Shannon Masjedi, President and CEO of Pacific Ventures Group stated: “We continue to see strong demand from our growing customer base, which allowed us to deliver another quarter of record revenues. As we grow our sales channels to unlock new growth avenues, our strategy to generate operational efficiencies is also taking hold, as reflected by our notable year-over-year and sequential improvements in gross margin during the quarter. We are pleased to see our technology-based approach to enhancing our supply chain and distribution functions take effect, which will allow us to have greater flexibility in the quarters ahead. I look forward to the remainder of 2022, which is shaping up to be a breakout year for Pacific Ventures as we work diligently to generate long-term value for our stakeholders.”

PACV is one exciting penny stock that has significant potential from current levels. Like any penny stock there are plenty of risks, for example; PACV’s primary customer is La Jolla which accounts for 42.5% of total revenues. There is some selling but not much, VERT sold a bunch on Friday but not enough for a t-trade at the close. PACV management may be looking to majors in the food business such as Tyson, US foods or Sysco to take Seaport Meats & SnoBar nationwide.
