Vivo Cannabis Reports Q1 Revenue Of $5.5 Million, Net Loss Of $3.5 Million

Revenues were down from $6.2 million in the prior quarter, with the company blaming the decline on a one-time $0.6 million excise tax underestimate, as well as market compression. The firms net revenue of $5.5 million was whittled down to a gross profit of just $0.8 million following production expenses and costs of goods sold.

Expenses for the quarter meanwhile came in at $4.2 million, lead by general and administrative expenses of $4.0 million, and amortization and depreciation of $1.1 million, while the company recognized a gain on other financial assets to the tune of $1.3 million.

The company has stated that the loss is primarily due to negative impacts from the COVID-19 situation which include downward pricing pressure and less demand for premium cannabis, lower than anticipated adult-use market growth, and production inefficiencies due in part to staffing challenges.

VIVO Cannabis Inc. last traded at CAD$0.14.
