Tilray Sees Revenue Decline To $144.1 Million In Q2 2023

Tilray Brands (TSX: TLRY) appears to be struggling when it comes to topline revenue. The firm this morning posted its second quarter 2023 results for the period ended November 30, 2022, posting declining revenue versus that of its first quarter results.

Revenue for the quarter came in at $144.1 million, down from $153.2 million on a quarter over quarter basis, with the firm instead working to transition investor focus to operating cash flow and “long term profitability.” On a constant currency basis, the firm reportedly recorded $157.6 million in revenue, versus last quarter’s constant currency figure of $166.5 million.

“During the second quarter, Tilray Brands took decisive, effective actions to manage operating cash flow and focus the business on accretive acquisitions and a path to long term profitability. And we have certainly done so – even amid an evolving retail environment – by removing costs and driving efficiencies across the platform in supply chain, procurement, packaging, and labor,” commented Irwin Simon, CEO and Chairman of Tilray.
