CEO Margaret Brodie commented, “Rubicon Organics holds the #1 premium position in Canada and is poised for growth with the launch of our full spectrum extract vapes line tapping into the highest growth segment in Canada. With a focus on quality, we are confident that our vape launch will not only drive revenue growth but also solidify our position as a leader in the Canadian cannabis market.”

Brodie, CEO of Rubicon Organics acknowledged the challenging quarter due to seasonality and weak consumer sentiment from 2023 but expressed optimism for recovery in Q2, noting, “I expect to recover from this temporary dip from our streak of positive Adjusted EBITDA in Q2. In Q1, a changing product mix reduced our gross margin, but this spring we’ve shifted focus to higher-margin products, expecting improved results in Q2 and beyond.”

CFO Janis Risbin stated, “Despite the market challenges, we’ve managed to maintain revenue levels in line with Q1 2023, a testament to our resilience and adaptability. With the expected refinancing of our debt later this year, we remain focused on strengthening our already solid foundation and continuing to invest opportunistically for growth in 2024 and beyond.”

Rubicon Organics anticipates significant growth from the introduction of new genetics and product categories, including vapes and premium edibles. The company’s strategic focus is on quality and trying to improve and recover in the next quarter.
