Unrivaled Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: UNRV) unveiled its financial prowess for the three months ending Sept. 30, 2023, with revenue landing at $8.6 million, representing an 11.4% year-over-year dip. Notably, the lion’s share of this revenue, standing at 94%, stemmed from the company’s four retail stores and sales of in-house cultivated flower and Korova-branded products, driving the retail gross margin to a solid 52%.
Facing the mighty headwinds in the regulated cannabis market, Unrivaled’s CFO, Patty Chan, emphasized the company’s resilience. She reiterated Unrivaled’s steadfast dedication to cultivating an exceptional retail experience through top-tier, curated products and customer-centric strategies. With an eye on the evolving cannabis landscape, particularly in California, the team remains vigilant, poised to seize opportunities in a fully federally legal market.
