GLG Life, which supplies stevia – a natural, zero-calorie sweetener used in food and beverages – reported a first-quarter loss of C$1.5m, or C$0.02 a share, compared with a loss of C$934,000, or C$0.01 a share, a year ago.
Revenue for the quarter rose to C$3m from C$841,000 a year ago, helped by higher demand and shipments of its high-grade stevia extract products.
The company, which sees revenue of C$50-60m for 2009, said its stevia operations are expected to account for 100% of revenue growth for the year. Sales, general and administration expenses for the quarter rose threefold to C$2m.
