Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC) increased its yearly revenue by 60 per cent thanks to its medical cannabis sales in different countries.

On Monday, the multinational cannabis operator with primary operations in Colombia announced its financial results for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021. The company reported revenue by the end of the year totalling $12.8 million, an increase of 60 per cent from $8 million in the last year. Gross profit decreased by 9 per cent to $6.4 million from $7 million in the last fiscal year.

Khiron reported its medical cannabis sales in 2021 increased to $4.6 million, representing 36 per cent of total revenue. Its Germany and the United Kingdom operations now represent more than 30 per cent of the firm’s medical cannabis sales as of Q4 2021.

Net loss and comprehensive loss increased by 63 per cent to $39.1 million from $24 million in the previous fiscal year.

Cash by the end of the year declined by 29 per cent to $8.9 million from $12.6 million in 2020. Operation costs went down to $20.4 million, a 17-per-cent increase from $24.5 million last fiscal year.

Khiron CEO Alvaro Torres said 2021 was a “transformational” year for the firm.

“Using a unique patient-oriented strategy has allowed us to continue demonstrating quarterly growth, with a strong commitment to improving the quality of patients’ lives,” he said in a statement.

“The success we have experienced in Europe so far is due to Khiron’s ability to leverage our novel understanding of medical cannabis in Latin America, driven by our health services strategy and validated by the extraordinary evidence we build every day from the data generated in our clinics,” he added.

The company said it’s focusing on its B2C medical cannabis strategy and decided to discontinue sales of its CBD-based cosmetics product line Kuida.

Khiron currently runs Serenia clinics in Colombia, Peru, the U.K. and Germany. In Colombia alone, it serves over 20,000 patients with medical cannabis.

Khiron is also set to enter the Mexican market after signing a deal announced last month with the largest Mexican non-profit for children with disabilities to offer its medical pot.

The company recently opened its first hybrid Serenia clinic in the United Kingdom and said it is currently completing the construction of the first clinic in Rio de Janeiro and introducing its THC-based medications.
