Judy Hong, Chief Financial Officer, said:

  • "We delivered solid sequential quarterly net revenue growth and improved margins, led by another record quarter for BioSteel, the
    stabilization of our Canadian cannabis business, and continued actions to reduce overall costs. We are pressing forward on our path to
    profitability in Canada and expect Canopy USA will meaningfully enhance our growth and profitability over time once it closes the
    announced acquisitions of Acreage, Jetty, and Wana.”
