Cronos Group starts off fiscal 2019 with a profit in Q1

In the first quarter of 2019, Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) more-than-doubled its revenues to C$6.5 million, primarily driven by the launch of the adult-use market in Canada, as well as the increased sales in CBD oil. The top line missed the analysts’ estimate by a narrow margin.

However, the company surprised Wall Street by reporting a profit of C$0.48 per share in the first quarter, despite the higher expenses related to research and development activities. Wall Street was expecting the company to report a slight loss.
