The, company, however, expects slower revenue growth this year from 2020 on vaccine rollouts.

Revenue rose to $977.7 million in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, from $505.2 million a year earlier.

The Ottawa-based company raked $5.1 billion in sales during the Thanksgiving weekend last year, up 76% from a year earlier.
