Lifeist Q1 FY23 Revenue Grows 22.5% YoY, What About Adjusted EBITDA?

Lifeist Wellness Inc. LFST M LFSWF net revenue increased 22.5% to CA$5.9 million ($4.3 million) in Q1 2023 compared to CA$4.9 million in Q1 2022. The increase was driven by a CA$515,000, or 16.4%, increase in Canadian cannabis revenue and CA$551,000 contribution from Mikra. A significant contributor to the quarter was the growth of higher margin Roilty brand sales which more than offset the planned elimination of lower margin licensing Phyto brand products.

We expect continued improvement and growth in the quarters to follow which paves the way for profitability and cash generation.”
