California-based cannabis company Hollister Biosciences Inc.(OTC: HSTRF) gave an update on its third-quarter 2020 performance sales figures. The company said that for the quarter ending September 30, 2020, it generated record quarterly revenue of C$ 12.5 million and C$ 1.265 million in EBITDA from its product line of pre-rolls, concentrates, distillates, solvent-free bubble hash, pre-packaged flower, tinctures, and vape products. Hollister was clear that the revenue and EBITDA figures had not yet been audited and are based on reports prepared by management.

“We are very pleased with our ability to deliver record quarterly revenue in such a challenging market environment. We attribute our revenue growth to further penetration of the California and Arizona dispensary networks and successful new product launches with our joint venture partners.  We hope to continue this positive momentum into year-end” stated Carl Saling, CEO.

These figures would be a sequential increase over the revenue from the second quarter ending June 30th, 2020, which was $8.47 million.
