MedMen Enterprises Inc (CSE:MMEN) (OTC:MMNFF) reported a spectacular 1,094% jump in sales late Thursday for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 on widening losses due to rapid expansion.   

For the quarter ended September 2018, the California-based cannabis grower and retailer reported losses of US$66.5 million, or US$1.42 per share. This was an improvement on net losses of US$78.7 million, or US$1.95 per share for the fourth quarter last year.

The picture wasn’t entirely gloomy, however. The opening of additional retail stores and strong results in California drove MedMen’s revenue to US$21.5 million a 1,094% jump over the US$1.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

The company continued territorial expansion in six key markets by closing the acquisition of Treadwell Nursery in Florida and opening its first branded retail store in downtown Las Vegas.

“Our first quarter performance underlines the successful execution of our growth strategy and ongoing commitment to provide mainstream cannabis consumers a wide breadth of products for their lifestyle and wellness needs,” said MedMen co-founder and CEO Adam Bierman.

Bierman said MedMen was now entering “a new phase” focused on “fully operationalizing” its large footprint.

“Our four-pillars strategy built around a quality team, superior assets, strong balance sheet and the ability to efficiently and effectively raise and deploy capital has set us up to successfully achieve our vision,” said Bierman.
