Top Canadian Cannabis Stocks For June Watchlist
Sundial Growers Inc.
In Canada, SNDL Inc. manufactures, promotes, and distributes cannabis-related products. The corporation’s two core business divisions are retail operations and cannabis-related activities. It produces, distributes, and sells cannabis to adult markets as well as privately sells cannabis for recreational purposes through corporate-owned and franchised retail cannabis firms. The company also manufactures and distributes inhalable items like as flower, pre-rolls, and vapes. Its brands include Top Leaf, Sundial Cannabis, Palmetto, and Grasslands.
First Quarter 2023 Financial and Operational Highlights
SNDL reported $202.5 million in net revenue for the first quarter of 2023, up from $240.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 and $17.6 million in the first quarter of 2022, a 1,050% increase year on year. The acquisitions of Alcanna, Valens, and Zenabis contributed to the growth over the prior year’s comparative quarter. Seasonality in the Liquor Retail category can explain the reduction in revenue in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the fourth quarter of 2022, as the fourth quarter is traditionally the strongest, and the first quarter is typically the worst. This was offset in part by an increase in revenue from the Cannabis Operations segment as a result of Valens’ partial quarter contribution in 2023.
The company lost $36.1 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to $161.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 and $38.0 million in the first quarter of 2022. The first-quarter loss was exacerbated by a seasonal decline in Liquor Retail sales and inventories and $10 million in asset impairments.
In January 2023, SNDL completed its acquisition of Valens. The united firms comprise a low-cost, vertically integrated Canadian company that generates over a billion dollars in pro forma revenue annually. The company is one of Canada’s largest adult-use cannabis manufacturers and sellers, with a diversified portfolio of brands, a 197-store multi-banner cannabis retail network, low-cost biomass sourcing, quality indoor cultivation, and low-cost manufacturing facilities.
