Oct 12 (Reuters) - Cannabis producer Aphria Inc posted a 41 percent rise in quarterly profit on Friday, boosted by gains from its investments in Liberty Health Sciences and Hiku Brands Co.
The company’s net income rose to C$21.2 million, or 9 Canadian cents per share, for the three months ended Aug. 31, from C$15.0 million, or 11 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
Marlboro maker Altria Group Inc is in talks for a stake in Aphria, the Globe and Mail reported earlier this week, citing multiple sources. (Reporting by John Benny in Bengaluru)
