On Tuesday, the Vancouver-based firm announced its first-quarter financial results ended April 30 and reported revenue growth of 77 per cent to $9.2 million from $5.2 million in the previous year.

The company says its revenue growth of 78 per cent to $3.3 million was an outstanding result and contributed over 36 per cent of the revenue volume. Kiaro says its ability to attract top talent to lead business channels has proven to be foundational in driving asset performance.

The company said its eCommerce business is fast-growing and contributed revenue of $752,000 to the quarter as compared to $596,000 in Q4 of FY2022.

“Revenue growth was underpinned by volume from the acquired Hemisphere retail stores and the strong revenue results from NCD, our wholesale business”, Lynch said.

“I would like to thank the Kiaro team who meet challenges with enthusiasm and creativity and who continue to deliver at the highest standards.  Particularly well managed by the team have been retail gross margins, which have remained steady at 37 per cent while the Wholesale segment is at 10 per cent,” she added.

According to Kiaro, gross margins are among the “healthiest” of the top publicly traded Canadian cannabis retailers based on recent filings.

Company stock dipped by 20 per cent today to $0.2 on the Canadian Ventures Exchange.
