This Cannabis Co. Expects Significant Growth Once Ohio's Retail Market Launches, Reports Slight YoY Decrease In 2023 Revenue

Zinger Key Points
  • Vext Science's revenue for 2023 slightly dropped year-over-year to $34.8 million from $35.4 million in 2022.
  • Net Income after taxes totaled $4.4 million for 2023, down from $10.9 million in fiscal 2022.

Vext Science, Inc. VEXT VEXTF, which runs vertical cannabis operations in Arizona and Ohio, reported its financial results on Friday for the period ended Dec. 31, 2023.

Revenue for 2023 slightly dropped year-over-year to $34.8 million from $35.4 million in 2022. Fourth quarter revenue grew year-year to $8.4 million, from $8.1 million in the prior year's quarter.

“Despite sustained pressure on the consumer and ongoing market-specific challenges in Arizona, Vext continued to perform better than the market during Q4, and completed initiatives that will prepare it for growth in Ohio as that market transitions to adult-use in 2024," Eric Offenberger, CEO of Vext said. "During the year, we enhanced our balance sheet flexibility, positioned our Arizona operations strongly for long-term profitability, and built out our footprint in Ohio, exiting the year with a Tier 1 cultivation operation, manufacturing operations, one consolidated dispensary, one additional dispensary that closed in Q1 2024, and two more dispensaries slated to close by the end of 2024.”
