Centri’s Kevin McLaughlin Featured in ColoradoBiz: How the Colorado Cannabis Industry Can Thrive Amidst Market Disruption

Centri’s Kevin McLaughlin, Managing Director & Cannabis Practice Leader, recently contributed to an article featured in ColoradoBiz magazine.

The article discusses the macroeconomic conditions currently affecting Colorado’s cannabis businesses and offers steps those companies can take to adjust today and position themselves for success in the future.

Kevin suggests 3 immediate actions to consider:

  • Take stock of your financial position, evaluating the impact of a prolonged slowdown on revenue, cash flow, and profitability.
  • Revisit financial forecasting, factoring in worst-case scenarios and other potential challenges.
  • Make tough decisions to reduce or eliminate non-essential or discretionary expenses.

While these steps are short-term strategies, making decisions that will have a long-term impact is vital to help cannabis companies succeed in a smaller and more concentrated market. Kevin suggests companies:

  • Strengthen governance and controls to give your company a competitive advantage in the future.
  • Reevaluate investment decisions, postponing or scaling back projects not critical to current operations or strategic goals.
  • Begin planning for an exit strategy if the pathway to survival looks insurmountable.

Colorado’s cannabis businesses are navigating uncharted territory.  The evolving landscape holds both challenges and opportunities, and those who respond with agility, insight, and a commitment to adaptability stand a better chance of navigating the shifting currents to become a key piece of the state’s future cannabis industry. Contact Centri’s cannabis experts to learn how we can help your business thrive.
