“My team has once again generated positive results in an underperforming small cap sector led by cannabis. We applaud the impressive operational performance by the majority of our portfolio cannabis companies and the US cannabis sector’s growth in revenue and cash flow,” said Andy DeFrancesco, SOL Global’ s Chairman and CEO. “We have continued to diversify our portfolio into new sectors of the cannabis space with investments in state-mandated testing labs and brands. Outside of cannabis, we have also explored investments in the psychedelics, real estate, recreational and commuter EV, and clean tech industries. I am once again both thankful and proud of my team and partners for today’s results.”
