(Reuters) – Canadian pot producer Hexo Corp (TO:) withdrew its forecast for next year on Thursday, citing regulatory uncertainty around the cannabis market and a slower rollout of its retail stores, driving shares down 18%.
“Slower than expected store rollouts, a delay in government approval for cannabis derivative products and early signs of pricing pressure are being felt nationally,” the company said in a statement.
“The delay in retail store openings in our major markets has meant that the access to a majority of the target customers has been limited.”
