Tilray shows promise despite losses

The cannabis producer reported net losses for both its Q4 and full fiscal periods.

However, the company beat analysts revenue estimates and showed promise to the market thanks to a non-cash impairment hit of $395 million.

Tilray totaled a net loss of C$457.8 million for the fiscal Q4 period and credited the significant hit on “impacting inventory, goodwill and other intangible assets.” The loss for the entire fiscal year period was $434 million.

The producer reported an uptick in revenue for both its fiscal Q4 period and its entire fiscal year, $153.3 million and $628.4 million respectively.

“We are confident that our proactive steps to plan for the evolution of the cannabis business in each of our markets has positioned Tilray Brands to be at the forefront of the industry on a global basis while delivering profitability and driving shareholder value,” Irwin Simon, chairman and CEO of Tilray, said.

The executive highlighted the cost-saving measurements undergone by Tilray to reach a healthier balance sheet.

Shares of the company reflected the optimism Simon demonstrated in his statement. The day Tilray released its financial results, shares of Tilray closed 11.66 percent higher for a price of US$3.65.
