SOL Global Investments Corp. SOLCF SOL (Frankfurt:9SB) released unaudited financials for the first quarter ended February 28, 2022, and a general operational update concerning the company’s assets and investments.
Unaudited Quarter-End Results
For the quarter-ended February 28, 2022, the company recorded a net loss of CA$74 million vs. quarter-end February 28, 2021, net income of CA$208 million. This represents an unfavorable change of CA$282 million. February 2021 saw liquidity events for previous large investments including Verano VRNOF which resulted in significant out-performance for that period.

Total loss from investments totaled CA$82 million for the quarter-ended February 28, 2022, compared to a gain of CA$244 million for the quarter-ended February 28, 2021. This represents an unfavorable change of CA$326 million between periods.
The unaudited net asset value per share is equal to CA$5.14 at February 28, 2022, vs. CA$7.12 at February 28, 2021.
“Despite a challenging quarter due to market volatility in the under-performing markets, and specifically the cannabis sector, we are beyond confident in how well SOL Global is positioned to generate growth into the future from our diversified portfolio," stated Kevin Taylor, SOL Global’s newly appointed chairman and CEO.
The company’s financial statements for the second quarter ended May 31, 2022, will be released on July 29, 2022.
