3Q22 Revenue. GABY reported third quarter revenue of $5.35 million (all figures in U.S. $), down from $7.6 million reported last year, although adjusted for the closure of the wholesale distribution business, revenue was down $1.3 million, or 20%. Net loss was $3.76 million, or a loss of $0.01 per share, compared to a loss of $3.41 million, or a loss of $0.01 per share, year-over-year. A still difficult operating environment due to lower pricing and reduced demand combined with increased competition and forex losses impacted results.
A Ray of Light? Notably, on a sequential basis, revenue was up $0.2 million, or 4%, from the second quarter of 2022, potentially indicating an upturn in the depressed California market. Gross margin increased to 46.5% from 43.2%, sequentially, and was up from 39.3% year-over-year. The Mankind dispensary experienced a 2.5% growth in the number of transactions to 74,331, with a consistent average transaction value of $70 when comparing 2Q22 with 3Q22.
