Revenue jumped 689.6% year-over-year to $80.8 million over the last year, according to the Boca Raton, Florida-based cannabis company’s earnings report Wednesday.
In the last quarter of 2020, revenue increased by 29.6% sequentially, reaching $32.3 million, only to grow by an additional 29% over the first quarter of 2021 to $41.7 million.
Jim Cacioppo, Jushi’s CEO, chairman and founder, said he expects revenues to range between $45 million to $48 million in the second quarter of 2021 and adjusted EBITDA to be between $4 million to $6 million.
“We continue to believe our strong momentum, enviable footprint, and solid balance sheet positions the Company well to execute on its current plans and drive long-term shareholder value through 2021 and beyond,” Cacioppo said.
