Aurora Cannabis earnings

Aurora Cannabis’ Q2 earnings increased with gross revenue rising 430% higher than the last quarter to $62 million. The Canadian-based marijuana company also reported that revenue in the last three months of 2018 quadrupled.

While the gross revenue surged, the net revenue had a more modest increase. The lackluster net revenue is because of the taxes Canada imposes on recreational marijuana and the net loss to Aurora Cannabis’ profits. The company’s net loss was $237.8 million, losing $4 for every $1 corporation made. The loss was also likely because of the drop in the average price of dried marijuana. The chief executive officer, (CEO), Terry Booth, spoke about Aurora Cannabis’ revenue.

‘Aurora continues to execute strongly across all of its market segments, as demonstrated by the 83% revenue growth over last quarter and the significant increase in confirmed production results. Our brands continue to resonate extremely well in the consumer market, our patient numbers continue to increase steadily, and we have maintained our market leadership in Germany and other key international markets. We are experiencing exceptional demand for our Canadian medical and consumer products, as well as sustained strong demand internationally,’ said Booth.
