Aurora Cannabis Inc. ACB ACB, reported its financial and operational results late Thursday for the fiscal second quarter that ended December 31, 2022.

"Following a tremendous effort to realize approximately $340 million of total annualized savings since February 2020, (...) we have right-sized our business while remaining the #1 Canadian LP in global medical cannabis revenues, and having demonstrated organic quarter-over-quarter revenue growth across all of our cannabis segments during Q2 2023,” said Miguel Martin, CEO of Aurora.

"Our Canadian rec business also demonstrated sequential growth driven by significant product innovation (...) Q2 2023 also included the first full quarter of results from our recent Bevo Agtech Inc. acquisition, for which we anticipate an even higher top-line and Adjusted EBITDA contribution in Q3 2023 versus Q2 2023 due to the inherent seasonality of this business."

  • Achieving Positive Adjusted EBITDA in Line with Prior Guidance
  • Delivering ~$340 Million in Annualized Cost Savings Since February 2020
