About Brain van Rooyen

Van Rooyen knows about the power of persistence from his rugby days and it seems to be paying off. After nearly losing its JSE-listing earlier this year because of late financials and inaccurate forecasts, Labat has bounced back strongly. Van Rooyen has got Labat listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, a neat move ahead of Germany’s expected legalization of cannabis later this year. And to boot he’s got Californian investors to commit to funding Labat over the next three years in its quest for local market dominance. His job would be a mighty lot easier if SA got its cannabis regulatory framework in order.
