Zenabis plans to concentrate on crucial activities and assets, while divesting non-core activities and monetizing non-core assets, like the sale of the Propagation segment and the Zenabis Delta facility.
Management sees more growth opportunities for the Canadian adult-use cannabis market, and expects shipments into export markets to restart during the second quarter, as the company responds to the new regulatory demands.
“We are pleased to report that Zenabis has completed a successful second year of operations with substantial growth in revenue and a much-improved balance sheet,” Shai Altman, Chief Executive Officer of Zenabis stated.
“Net revenue increased 95% year-over-year with growth across all sales channels. Sales into the Canadian recreational market grew 78% as the recreational market grew during the year, but more importantly, the Company’s market share increased from 1.0% to 1.7%. Sales in the wholesale bulk channel also grew substantially by 242% year-over-year, due in large part to the Company’s entrée into export markets, notably Israel and Australia, during the year.”
