Curaleaf's Revenue Growth Nearly Quadrupled In Q3

U.S.-based Curaleaf Holdings Inc (OTC: LDVTF) reported its financial results for the third quarter. The company, which went public on the Canadian Stock Exchange at the end of October, reported a significant growth in top line and provided a positive outlook for the full year.

What Happened

During the third quarter, Curaleaf saw its revenue surge by 289 percent on a year-on-year basis to $21.4 million. The company's bottom line swung to a net loss of $33.7 million from a net profit of $500,000 a year earlier. The net loss was impacted by a $25 million one-time, non-cash, accounting entry, which was part of the company's reverse takeover.

Curaleaf's gross profit, excluding the impact of biological assets, amounted to $13.8 million, an increase of 360 percent on the year.

Why It's Important

Curaleaf is one of the largest vertically-integrated cannabis companies in the US. Headquartered in Massachusetts, the company operates in 12 states, where it has 33 dispensaries, 12 cultivation sites and 10 processing facilities.

The company raised $400 million in a private placement last month and debuted on the stock market with a capitalization of $4.5 billion, one of the largest among cannabis stocks that went public on CSE.
