Jushi Trims Losses As Revenues Rise Over Last Year

Jushi Holdings Inc.  (CSE: JUSH) (OTCQX: JUSHF) released its financial results for the first quarter of 2022 ending March 31, 2022, with revenue increasing 48% over last year to $61.9 million. Jushi said sales fell 6% from the fourth quarter’s revenue of $65.9 million. The company delivered a net loss of $14.3 million, which was trimmed from last year’s net loss of $26 million.

“Despite the seasonal weakness in the first quarter and a series of challenges including the loss of store hours due to Omicron, snowstorms, and the Pennsylvania distillate cartridges recall, I am pleased with our first-quarter performance and the progress we have made in positioning our business for the long term,” said Jim Cacioppo, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman, and Founder of Jushi. “We remain focused on investing in our businesses, including building out our store base, significantly expanding our cultivation and processing facilities in both Pennsylvania and Virginia, scaling our wholesale channel in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and integrating our two recently acquired businesses in Nevada. At the same time, we have taken decisive steps to manage our costs across all operating units and are encouraged by the initial results.”

Jushi said that the revenue was driven by the expansion of its retail footprint from 17 to 29 stores, the acquisition of Nature’s Remedy of Massachusetts, and increased wholesale sales at our Pennsylvania and Virginia grower-processor facilities. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven primarily by a seasonal slowdown in activity, industry headwinds, such as continued inflationary pressures on consumer spending, regulatory delays impacting the expansion and sale of product offerings in select states, and temporary store closures related to the pandemic and snowstorms.

Jim Cacioppo concluded, “I am very encouraged by what we have accomplished to date and remain confident that we are creating one of the most robust and exciting platforms to capitalize on the growth in the U.S. cannabis industry. I am incredibly proud of our people and their contributions and look forward to scaling our operations in 2022 and beyond.”
