Chief Financial Officer Mike Lee’s comments on Tuesday

CFO Mike Lee commented on the financial report on Tuesday and said:

“We are executing against our cost savings program, with several initiatives already completed and more underway to build a leaner and more agile business. These cost savings, along with our top-line growth and continued cost discipline, puts Canopy firmly on a path to achieve profitability during fiscal 2022, with further improvement anticipated beyond.”

In separate news from North American, S&P Global Inc. also reported its financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter on Tuesday.
