Akerna’s SEC filings note the cannabis industry is fragmented and it is seeking to build a scalable business and that may involve buying other companies.

It lost $16.4 million for the year ended June 30, an increase of 32 percent from the loss of $12.4 million the prior year. Revenue for the most recently eneded year was $12.6 million, up 16 percent from $10.8 million for fiscal 2019. The majority of its revenue is from the sale of software, which represented slightly less than $10 million in revenue in fiscal 2020, a 22-percent rise from $8.3 million in revenue the prior year.. A.G.P/Alliance Global Partners is the sole placement agent for the offering.
