"We reported solid results in the face of an unprecedented macro environment. We generated $218 million in revenue, representing 4% year-over-year growth, and maintained our industry position as the no. 1 wholesaler of branded cannabis, the no. 1 branded product portfolio chosen by consumers, and the no. 1 most productive per-store national retailer. Importantly, we accomplished these results while maintaining our adjusted gross margin at 53% and adjusted EBITDA margin of 23%, in a market where prices fell between 10-30% depending on the state. The Columbia Care transaction is proceeding as expected — we're checking off milestone after milestone, the divestiture and regulatory processes are on track and we continue to anticipate a closing around year end,” stated Charles Bachtell, CEO and co-founder of Cresco Labs.
