SMITH FALLS, Ont. — Canopy Growth Corp. has reported a loss in its latest quarter as it more than doubled its revenue compared with a year ago.
The marijuana producer (TSX:WEED) says it lost $1.3 million attributable to shareholders, or a penny per share for the quarter, compared with a profit of $5.4 million, or five cents per share in the same quarter last year.
Revenue in its second quarter totalled $17.6 million, up from $8.5 million last year.
During the quarter ended Sept. 30, Canopy says it sold 2,020 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $7.99 per gram, up from 1,169 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $7.01 per gram during the same period last year.
It says the higher average price was due to an improved mix of oil products, including oil-based capsules introduced late in its first quarter.
Last month, Constellation Brands signed a deal to acquire a nearly 10 per cent stake in Canopy for $245 million.
