Leading cannabis retailer High Tide Inc. (TSXV: HITI) (Nasdaq: HITI) (FSE: 2LYA) says it’s posted the second-highest quarterly revenue ever reached by a Canadian cannabis company.

In a statement Thursday, the leading pot retailer released its earnings results for the first quarter ended Jan. 31 with revenue up 34 per cent to $72.2 million from $53.9 million last quarter.

Quarterly adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization was up 80 per cent to $3 million from $1.6 million in the fourth quarter last year.

High Tide also reported a net loss of $7.3 million, up 74 per cent from $4.2 million. Loss from operations increased by 21 per cent to $6.1 million from $4.8 million.

The firm says operating expenses increased from opening new stores, and acquisitions of Smoke Cartel, Fab CBD, Daily High Club, DankStop, Blessed CBD and NuLeaf Naturals. It also reported expenses related to uplisting company stock to the Nasdaq.

Revenue coming from the new shops and acquisitions contributed $33.1 million, according to the company.

Cash-on-hand was $10.1 million at the end of the quarter.

“With these results, we have now achieved the second-highest quarterly revenue figure ever reported by a Canadian cannabis company that reports in Canadian dollars, and with our growth plans for the remainder of this year, we remain confident in further meaningful increases to our revenue profile,” CEO Raj Grover says in a statement.

“We practically doubled our EBITDA this quarter and believe this growth will continue to accelerate as we remain hyper focused on executing our business plan,” he adds.

Previously, the firm missed a deadline to report its fourth-quarter earnings, but avoided regulatory actions.

This year, the company opened six Canna Cabana locations including three in Saskatchewan, two in Alberta and one in Ontario.

It now has a total of 113 stores across Canada with around 450,000 members in its Cabana Club program, up 84 per cent since the launch of its discount club model in October.

High Tide’s UK-based Blessed CBD subsidiary recently launched online sales in Germany, and its Fab CBD subsidiary launched a subscribe-and-save discount program for its American customers this month.
