Cannabis Business Interviews: Ascend Wellness Holdings Strategy, Growth and Leveraging Regulatory Changes

I interviewed Rebecca Conti Koar, EVP of Investor Relations and Strategy at AWH (Ascend Wellness Holdings), last week. We discussed Ascend Wellness’s recent earnings results, revenue growth, market penetration, and potential expansion plans for new stores or markets.

Toward the end of the discussion, Rebecca provided some interesting insights into Ascend’s tax strategy, upcoming refinancing of a term loan, and an outlet retail strategy for value-oriented products.  Finally, we dove into the implications for the industry over the next twelve to eighteen months, including consolidation possibilities and challenges posed by regulatory changes, and Rebecca provided insights into Ascend Wellness Holdings’ current performance and future outlook in the cannabis industry.
