"The fourth quarter wraps up a historic year with major steps taken in Canada to build-out our national platform while scaling all of our processes to bring cannabis to market,” said Bruce Linton, Chairman and Co-CEO of Canopy Growth. “The third quarter of the year benefitted from months of advanced production while the fourth quarter relied more on efficient throughput and a more automated platform. With more product formats coming to the Canadian market later in the year, we are working hard to ensure that we are ready to hit the ground running with products, formats and brands that Canadians trust."
