Security Companies Rise to Prominence Within the Burgeoning Cannabis Industry

9:00 am ET January 24, 2019 (PR Newswire) Print

FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary

Recent trends in the cannabis industry have led to a global spread of legalization. Most countries exploring the industry are interested in the medical sector, but countries like the U.S. and Canada are expected to dominate the recreational segment. According to data compiled by Zion Market Research, the global legal cannabis industry generated approximately USD 16.71 Billion of revenue in 2017 and is expected to deliver revenues of USD 62.96 Billion by the end of 2024. Additionally, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 21% throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2024. The increasing efforts to legalize cannabis internationally for either the medical or recreational purpose are continuously accelerating the market growth. The industry is also growing due to many large private or public sector investments which are flowing into the cannabis market in an effort to research new delivery methods such as oils, tinctures, vapes and others. 3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd. (OTC: PTVYF), DSW Inc. (NYSE: DSW), Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB), TerrAscend Corp. (OTC: TRSSF)

Cannabis has quickly become heavily prominent in regions where it has been legalized as U.S. states like California, Colorado, Washington, and Nevada are seeing thriving sales after legalizing recreational use. As a result, more and more businesses are entering into popular cannabis segments such as those of retailers, cultivators, or processors. However, regardless of the field, the need for security has caught the attention of many. Companies are looking to acquire security services such as cybersecurity, secure transportation, surveillance, or on-site guards in order to protect their facilities and profits. "So, while the industry is clearly on the rise as more and more states pass laws legalization the use of cannabis, the industry also needs to consider the privacy and security of its systems and networks from the ground up. Because this industry is so heavily regulated, and tracked, there is also a heavy amount of data collection and storage of personally identifiable information and other sensitive data," said Kathryn Rattigan, member of the Business Litigation Group and the Data Privacy and Security Team.

3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd. (OTC: PTVYF) is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (CSE: SAFE). Yesterday, the Company announced breaking news that, "its wholly-owned subsidiary, 3 Sixty Secure Corp., is supporting the Ontario Cannabis Store ("OCS"), which focuses on providing safe and responsible access to cannabis in Ontario. 3Sixty has entered into a multiyear agreement with OCS to provide secure transport services which contribute to the safe delivery of cannabis products within the OCS distribution network.

"I am extremely pleased that we were selected by OCS to provide security services and to contribute to safe and responsible access to cannabis in Ontario," said Thomas Gerstenecker, CEO and Founder of 3Sixty. "We believe that our agreement with OCS highlights the world-class quality of our security services and the impressive pedigree of our customer base. We continue to seek new services to offer to our existing customers and we are looking beyond our borders for geographic expansion opportunities that allow us to export our expertise across Canada, the US and internationally as we seek organic growth and consider disciplined M&A opportunities to accelerate growth."

"Ontario, with a population of more than 14 million people, is Canada's largest cannabis market," added Thomas Gerstenecker. "Estimates by the Federal Government indicate that Ontario's potential market for cannabis is more than $2 billion which is a tremendous opportunity for 3Sixty and for Canada's 144 Licensed Producers, of which 76 are in the province of Ontario. 3Sixty has relationships with Canada's largest LP's, we continue to grow our customer base, and our agreement with the OCS is expected to contribute to significant revenue growth at 3Sixty as the Ontario market develops."
