NEW YORK, March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire – Sugarmade, Inc. (OTCMKTS: SGMD) (“Sugarmade”, “SGMD”, or the “Company”) is pleased to issue the following update on operations, including information about the recent opening of its new Nug Avenue cannabis delivery operation, located in the large and rapidly growing Los Angeles metro cannabis marketplace.
“We are moving forward with our core strategic plan, as announced and discussed during 2020, which consists of expanding our end-market access as a central player in the growing California cannabis delivery marketplace and developing our cannabis production capacity to verticalize our operations in the space,” noted Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade. “The successful opening of our LA delivery hub is an exciting development with strong topline growth implications given the scale of that market and our strong positioning there. And our focus on developing a vertically integrated supply chain represents continued progress toward pushing more of that growth to the bottom line, which we believe is the most effective path to directly rewarding shareholders.”
As announced in February, Sugarmade recently acquired a 70% stake in the operations of Nug Avenue, which serves as a major hub for cannabis delivery services in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Nug Avenue has been open and operating with Sugarmade involved for the past four weeks, and the results have exceeded management expectations thus far.
In addition, the Company is actively pursuing acquisition of property zoned for cannabis cultivation and establishment of large-scale cannabis cultivation and production operations. As described in prior communications, Sugarmade intends to develop a full farm-to-door vertically integrated cannabis business.
Chan added, “Verticalization is an important step because it carries the potential to significantly widen margins. We have taken concrete steps in support of our goal of verticalization and expect significant additional movement toward that goal before the June 30th fiscal year end.”
