VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2021 / 1933 Industries Inc. (the "Company" or "1933 Industries") (CSE:TGIF)(OTCQB:TGIFF), a vertically integrated cannabis consumer packaged goods company, is pleased to announce its second quarter ("Q2 2021") financial results for the period ended January 31, 2021. All amounts expressed are in Canadian dollars.
Financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Detailed information regarding the Company's financial results as well as management's discussion and analysis can be found at https://sedar.com/ and https://1933industries.com/.
Mr. Paul Rosen, Chairman and CEO, Management Commentary
The Company has set as key priorities the goals of achieving profitability, becoming cash-flow positive and building shareholder value. After considerable work undertaken over the last several months, I am pleased to report that the Company is in a stronger financial position today than a year ago. We have laid a strong foundation for long term growth with a strengthened balance sheet, a substantially improved debt-to-equity ratio and the capacity to maximize our output and optimize the quality of our products and assets, which enable us to deliver exceptional consumer experiences.
Over the reporting period, the Company continued to make progress in improving and streamlining operations in an effort to right-size costs, improve the balance sheet and drive revenue, resulting in significant improvements in net loss, gross margins, expenses and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company's focus has been to bring its assets into continuous production, develop premium strains, expand its extraction capacities, expand distribution for its CBD line, and improve margins. The Company has continued to minimize non-revenue generating costs and is carefully managing its cash position.
During Q2 2021, the Company expanded the output of premium flower and concentrates resulting in record sales in January 2021. Revenues increased by 27% from the previous quarter, demonstrating the strength of local demand for cannabis products in Nevada, where we see favourable market conditions for years to come. Management will continue to grow market share in its core market as a leading wholesaler of craft cannabis products. The loss of tourism in Las Vegas due to COVID-19 and the impact of the pandemic on brick-and-mortar retail across the US had an effect on Canna Hemp™ sales. The Company believes that growth of the brand will come from its e-commerce efforts and will continue to build on its online presence. Management expects that the benefits of these operational efficiencies and expanded sales networks will result in substantial improvements that will be realized in fiscal 2021.

The Company reports a 27% improvement in revenue from the previous quarter, largely attributed to increased sale of Alternative Medicine Association ("AMA") branded cannabis products.

The Company's CBD product manufacturing subsidiary, Infused MFG, reported revenues of $0.7 million and gross margin of $0.3 million in Q2 2021. The impact of the pandemic on brick-and-mortar retail across the US has had an effect on Canna Hemp™ CBD product sales.

- Working capital at January 31, 2021 was a deficiency of $3.7 million, compared to working capital surplus of $6.1 million at July 31, 2020, a decrease of 161%, primarily due to the reclassification of $10.0 million in convertible debentures to current liabilities as they mature on September 14, 2021.

As of the date of this report, there is an aggregate of $3,876,000 principal balance of convertible debentures outstanding and the Company has called an Extraordinary Meeting of Debentureholders to consider an amendment to extend the maturity date for the debentures to September 14, 2022.
