Is This Big Tobacco’s Last Gasp?

Posted by Editorial Staff | Aug 11, 2021 | Tech |

  • REGRETS: You Bet Big Tobacco will have them after it screwed up and let this new player into the game.
  • CROWN JEWELS: In an industry coup, top JUUL Labs executives saw the future and rushed to join Poda Lifestyle & Wellness.
  • LEGENDARY WIN: A huge tobacco company spent $8.1 billion only to be beaten by two inventors with a couple million bucks.

Two Quiet Inventors Have Done Something That a Giant Multinational Could Only Dream Of...

They started a revolution that could shake the $1 trillion global tobacco industry to its core.

Moreover, they only spent about $5 million to develop what could be a perfect product, while the giant multinational frittered away $8.1 billion, apparently, only to come in second place.

That means the inventors have likely started an industry disruption of unfathomable magnitude.

This looks to be so significant, so magnetic, that executives from a huge rival were compelled to join the inventor’s company.

And that’s why investors need to quickly get up to speed on Poda Lifestyle & Wellness Ltd. (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF).

Because in a story that has a biblical refrain, Poda’s CEO, Ryan Selby, has drawn a bead on a Goliath known as Phillip Morris International (NYSE:PM). He’s now poised for the knockout.

Here’s the Whole Story

Poda Lifestyle & Wellness is on the leading edge of a radical new way to smoke nicotine, and other dried plants that can be inhaled when heated.

The technology is called Heat-not-Burn.

Phillip Morris International, the giant multinational, spent $8.1 billion developing a similar cigarette.

But, in a stunning turn of events, Poda Lifestyle & Wellness beat Phillip Morris to critical patents, in Canada and the U.S.

Those patents could now position Poda to potentially take a huge bite out of the global market of 1.3 billion tobacco smokers.

In fact, the patents make Poda a different sort of player in the tobacco space.

That’s because while Poda’s Beyond Burn™ Poda Pods contain plenty of nicotine, they contain no tobacco. No tobacco means few regulatory issues across the globe.

From there you can extrapolate the potential for fewer health issues, which could make Poda a huge threat to Phillip Morris International.

Two JUULs Join Poda

Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ future looks so bright that it was able to poach two superstars from JUUL Labs, which is internationally known for its e-cigarettes that vaporize flavored oils.

JUUL is famous for attracting a $12.8 billion investment from Altria (NYSE:MO), which pushed JUUL’s valuation to $38 billion.

At the time, as Bloomberg noted, the deal made JUUL more valuable than Elon Musk’s SpaceX, as well as more valuable than Airbnb.

So, there’s no doubt about the fact that it was an industry coup when Poda Lifestyle & Wellness added JUUL Canada’s former president, Michael Nederhoff, to its advisory board along with JUUL Canada’s former Head of Corporate Affairs, Nicholas Kadysh. Both were also on the leadership team at Red Bull, Canada.

That means, as Poda readies an international rollout, being able to draw upon deep experience earned at JUUL and Red Bull is a massive benefit.

A New Way To Feed An Old Habit

Poda is now taking its first steps onto a massive international stage… and looks to have cracked the code with what could rapidly become the $1 trillion market’s dominant alternative tobacco product.

In its case, Poda developed products that satisfy smoker’s cravings by perfecting the newest and possibly best alternative to cigarettes with what are known as Heat-not- Burn (HNB) products.

HNB systems are considered to offer reduced-risk products because they do NOT burn anything. Instead, they heat organic materials to release the product’s nicotine without producing smoke…

Heat-not Burn cigarettes are gaining popularity, so much so that dreams of a smokeless future could one day become a reality.

Forbes saw that future when it wrote:

“Heat-not-Burn (HNB), has the potential to slash smoking- related death and disease by appealing to the millions of smokers who’ve failed to quit using e-cigarettes and traditional nicotine-replacement therapies.”

Then the FDA chimed in:

“Scientific studies have shown that switching completely from conventional cigarettes to Heat-not-Burn (HNB) systems significantly reduces your body’s exposure to harmful or potentially harmful chemicals”

Phillip Morris International has taken the idea of a smokeless future to the extreme.

Remember, it invested $8.1 billion to finish second place behind Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) Heat-non-Burn cigarette.

On July 25, 2021, Phillip Morris International’s boss said his company will stop selling cigarettes in the United Kingdom within 10 years. PMI makes Marlboro cigarettes for the European market. Yet its CEO, Jacek Olczak said the move was part of the company’s goal to become smoke-free and to help end the use of traditional cigarettes.

Moreover, Olczak also called on the UK government to outlaw cigarettes within a decade.

Think about that, a cigarette maker wants to ban cigarettes…

That is some spectacular confidence in its Heat-not-Burn IQOS product, which is sold in 64 countries with an estimated 17.6 million users.

In all, Heat-not-Burn pulled Phillip Morris’ bacon out of the fire in the first quarter, as this April 21, 2021, MarketWatch headline so succinctly put it:

“Philip Morris beats profit, revenue expectations as IQOS strength helps offset cigarette shipment declines”

So, Phillip Morris International believes it has an ace up its sleeve with its IQOS Heat-not-Burn cigarette.

If that’s the case, then, it could be that Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) has a straight flush up its sleeve with its Heat-non-Burn cigarette.

A Deal To Enter The Massive Asian Market

PODA HAS INKED A DEAL WITH ONE OF PHILLIP MORRIS CONTEMPORARIES IN THE BIG TOBACCO MARKET.

Their deal with ESON Technology gives it access to ESON distribution network in Europe and Asia where ESON currently sells more than 50 million units per month. Best of all, ESON patented proprietary blend of tobacco-free products heat perfectly in Poda’s electronic nicotine delivery system.

Poda’s target is China with its more than 400 million adult smokers. Its partnership with ESON is aimed at providing Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) with a fast-tracked opportunity to rapidly develop its Chinese market share.

The Better Heat-not-Burn System & Investment Opportunity

Whether it’s China, or Japan, or the UK, Poda’s Heat-not-Burn products enter the market with a slew of competitive advantages, the first of which is that while they contain a full supply of nicotine, they contain ZERO tobacco.

Instead, they use a proprietary blend of tea leaves infused with synthetic nicotine to perfectly mimic tobacco.

The result? Smokers have a smoke-free alternative to their regular habit without sacrificing any of the satisfaction they’re used to (unlike with e-cigarettes or nicotine gums).

Smoke-free also means the toxic parts of traditional cigarette smoke are significantly reduced when using Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ Beyond Burn™ Poda Pods.

But one of the most significant advantages is the company’s aggressively competitive pricing compared to tobacco-containing HNB products. Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) can offer a better consumer experience at a better price because they avoid rising tobacco taxes and duties (remember, they’re tobacco-free).

The WHO recommends all countries set taxes at least 75% of total price/pack:

  • Australia’s aggressive tobacco taxation has increased 12.5% per year – with a current tax of $22.07 on each pack
  • The majority of EU member countries have tax rates above 75% of the total price per pack as per WHO recommendations
  • In the US, excise tax is set by each state. DC currently has the highest at $4.50 per pack with an average tax inclusive price of $11.29/pack

A Clean Knockout

But the biggest differentiator of all is there’s no cleaning required. This solves the major pain-point that other HNB products suffer from: the need for regular cleaning.

For instance, Philip Morris’ IQOS Heat-not-Burn tobacco product must be cleaned after every 20 sticks or so. Even then, the cigarette smell never really goes away.

Ultimately, after just a few cycles, the grungy unit is like having an ashtray in your pocket.

In contrast, Poda Pods are the first and only cigarettes to have a completely closed pod. So there’s no mess because the tea-leaf/nicotine residue remains sealed inside, avoiding direct contact to the device itself.

That means no ash, no maintenance, no residual odor in the heating device, and no cross contamination between pods – each pod is a fresh experience.

IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS NO ORDINARY HNB SYSTEM.

Poda spent the past six years doing extensive R&D in its workshop – to the tune of $5 million, while Phillip Morris International spent $8.1 billion to come in second place.

Now Poda is ready to prove its market muscle with an international rollout.

It’s Beyond Burn™ heating devices are produced at a world-class e-cigarette factory that gives Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) the triple advantage of low- cost production, exceptional quality, and unlimited scalability for future growth.

Production Is Speeding Up

That means no ash, no maintenance, no residual odor in the heating device, and no cross contamination between pods – each pod is a fresh experience.

The proprietary process is extremely low-cost.

Better yet, Poda can now install that same automated equipment at strategic locations globally to meet regional demands while also reducing distribution costs and potentially lowering labor costs.

Its current production capability is 400,000 pods per month. The company plans to scale that up in Q3 2021 to meet increasing demand.

In other words, Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) has already invested in and built the engine and now it’s ready to turn the ignition and work it 24/7/365.

That steady beat of progress could create a Poda revenue model that is diversified across three complementary verticals:

  • Beyond Burn™ heating devices
  • Beyond Burn™ Poda Pods (think “recurring revenue”)
  • White labelling partnerships (also recurring revenue)

Expanding Distribution

In Q2 2021, Poda will launch its online retail sales portal. Since they’ll be able to sell directly to consumers worldwide, that single catalyst could drive serious investor interest in the stock.

At the same time, Poda is in ongoing distribution discussions and is pursuing various distribution agreements with FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) distributors globally.

White labelling opportunities will also let Poda extend its distribution reach.

But the biggest near-term catalyst for investors to watch is Poda’s Q2 2021 market test with the help of Shenzhen-based ESON Technology.

ESON currently distributes over 50 million of its proprietary NEAFS sticks per month into the Chinese and European markets. NEAFS sticks are IQOS-compatible single-use products.

In Q2 2021, ESON will test launch a “NEAFS by Poda” using ESON’s current distribution channels.

The test is expected to include a minimum of 1 million units to gauge the level of market interest and adoption.

If the market test is a success, Poda and ESON have agreed to partner around an ongoing offtake agreement with expected initial volumes to exceed 10 million Poda pods per month.

With those business development advantages already in place – patents, production, revenue model and distribution – Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) has multiple exciting near-term catalysts coming up and perfect timing to penetrate and disrupt the emerging HNB market.

Heat-Not-Burn And The Future of Smoking

The headwinds facing the tobacco industry seem ever-increasing:

  • Bans on menthol cigarettes
  • Restrictive non-smoking regulations
  • Rising taxes on tobacco
  • Known major health threats of cigarette smoking

That’s all good news for Poda Lifestyle & Wellness Ltd. (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) and its investors.

But the most obvious sign that HNB is the future of smoking is that big tobacco is saying exactly that.

Just look at the website of the world’s largest tobacco company, Philip Morris International.

The first thing you’ll see is its new tagline:

No surprise, really, considering:

  • PMI sunk more than $8.1 billion into developing its smoke-free business
  • It sold 76 billion heated tobacco units in 2020 for a 27.59% YoY gain
  • 25% of the company’s revenue now comes from these new products

But while HNB is paving the way for a better smoke-free future, Poda Lifestyle & Wellness Ltd. (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) is offering an even better HNB alternative that’s also tobacco-free…a clear competitive advantage that sets them apart from the pack.

Outshining The Competition

The table below of comparable companies in this market space shows how Poda Lifestyle & Wellness’ (CSE:PODA, OTC:PODAFCSE:PODA, OTC:PODAF) offers investors far greater upside potential when it comes to market cap and stock price growth.

As well, we’ve already seen how Poda has several major advantages over the industry- leading IQOS line from Philip Morris International and Altria Group (the parent company of Philip Morris USA):

  • NO tobacco
  • NO cleaning
  • NO residual odors

On top of that, Poda’s HNB system is HALF THE PRICE of the IQOS system.

The fact is, even though Big Tobacco’s heavy hitters are shifting towards a “smokeless future,” it seems that they may have missed the mark in creating a superior product for the market.
