Looking to the balance sheet, Hexo saw its cash position grow to $94.3 million from that of $80.4 million, a small figure considering the company raised $46 million in equity during the quarter. Receivables grew mildly from $14.0 million to $16.82 million, while commodity taxes receivable and other receivables fell to $12.2 million from $21.2 million.

Total current liabilities fell from $68.2 million to $43.8 million, largely a result of the firm finally settling some payables.

Hexo Corp last traded at $1.01 on the NYSE.
