The “Benchmark Index for the Cannabis Industry” Continues to Outperform


NEW YORK, June 24, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — Viridian Capital Advisors has published its Q1’2015 Cannabis Stock Index,  labeled by Barron’s as the benchmark index for the Cannabis industry.

This report covers 80 of the 350+ publicly traded companies in the cannabis industry that we believe are best positioned for growth, categorized into 11 different sectors. The report includes information on stock prices and returns, market caps, revenues, valuation multiples, capital raises, merger and acquisition transactions, strategic initiatives, and company highlights.

Key highlights for the quarter include:

  • Q1’2015 capital raise transactions increase significantly, representing nearly half of all the capital raised in all of 2014.
  • The number of registration statements clearing the SEC review process is growing, providing both increased liquidity and capital for these companies.
  • The number of small fund investors in the market is increasing, providing more financing alternatives for public companies, and potentially friendlier structures/terms.
