HEXO had hit a bit of setback amid the pandemic last year, leading it to take cost control measures, including the sale of its Niagara facility.

The company also reported achieving positive adjusted EBITDA in the latest three-month period, recording the seventh quarter of adjusted EBITDA improvement in a row.
