Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (GLH-CN) reported revenue was US$3.2-million in the first quarter compared to US$2.3-million for the same period last year. “The 42 per cent year-over-year increase largely reflects the contribution from product sales as a result of the acquisition of Chalice Farms in July 2017, more than offsetting supply constraints of key products across the portfolio and a challenging wholesale market in Oregon,” the company stated.

Net income was US$8.1-million or 2 cents per share compared with a net loss of US$2.3-million or 2 cents a year ago, the company said. “Results for the 2018 period benefited from non-operating income of US$12.4 million related to favorable changes in the fair value of warrant and debt liabilities,” the company stated.
