Sundial Growers Inc. (NASDAQ:SNDL) is a Canada-based firm that markets cannabis products. The cannabis products are sold under brand names such as Top Leaf, Sundial Cannabis, Palmetto, and Grasslands. Some of the inhalable products it sells include flower, pre-rolls, and vapes. In October last year, Sundial Growers purchased the liquor retailer Alcanna in a deal worth over 300 million dollars. The latter operates in more than 170 locations and is the largest private liquor retailer in Canada. Alcanna also has a majority stake in Nova Cannabis, one of the largest cannabis retailers in Canada.. The company last reported its earnings on Nov. 11, 2021, when it posted an adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) profit totaling 10.5 million dollars, but investors taking a chance on Sundial should be aware that there’s still possible risk ahead for the business.
