Management Commentary

"We are pleased to report record revenues of $18.3 million for fiscal 2023, a 46% increase from fiscal 2022", said Mr. Paul Rosen, Chairman and CEO of the Company. "We are encouraged by this milestone accomplishment, achieved despite experiencing a considerable disruption in our cultivation facility during the 3rd and 4th quarters while the Company upgraded and retrofitted its facility, which significantly reduced overall revenue during those two quarters. With those upgrades now completed, we remain focused on continuing to increase overall revenue, while also remaining committed to fine tuning our operations and continuing to cut costs. We anticipate that our disciplined approach will allow us to pursue additional growth opportunities in the future."

Fiscal 2023 and 2022 Consolidated Operating Financing Highlights

  • Total revenues increased by 46% to $18.3 million in fiscal 2023 from $12.5 million in fiscal 2022. AMA revenues increased by 56% during the reporting period, from $10.9 million in fiscal 2022 to $16.8 million in fiscal 2023.
  • Expenses were $12.8 million for fiscal 2023 compared to $20.2 million for fiscal 2022, including a non-cash goodwill impairment relating to AMA of $4.6 million.
  • Gross profit, excluding fair value adjustments, was $0.6 million for fiscal 2023, compared to $3.2 million during the same period in fiscal 2022. Gross profit, after fair value adjustments, was a loss of $0.6 million for fiscal 2023 and a profit of $2.7 million for fiscal 2022. The decrease in gross profit was due to increased production and cultivation costs, delayed harvests, and lower yields while the Company upgraded and retrofitted the building's complex irrigation and humidification systems during the reporting period.
  • Net loss and adjusted EBITDA were a loss of $14.0 million and $7.6 million, respectively, for fiscal 2023, largely attributed to the infrastructure updates to the cultivation facility, compared to a loss of $18.1 million and $4.8 million, respectively, for fiscal 2022.
  • Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.03 for fiscal 2023, compared to $0.04 for fiscal 2022.
  • Cash was $1.1 million at the end of the reporting period, compared to $0.3 million in fiscal 2022.

Q4 2023 Compared to Q4 2022 Financing Highlights

  • Q4 2023 revenues increased to $5.6 million from $2.6 million during the comparable period. The 115% increase in revenue in the current period was primarily due to an increase in AMA revenues resulting from the completion of the retrofit and upgrades to the cultivation facility, and from the plant operating at full capacity. AMA generated significant revenue from the sale of whole cannabis flower.
  • Gross profit was $0.1 million in the current period compared to a gross loss of $1.9 million in the prior year comparable period.
  • Expenses were $9.2 million in Q4 2023 compared to $2.2 million in Q4 2022. Included in the increase were higher G&A expenses, a $4.6 million goodwill impairment, higher license fees, taxes, insurance, legal and auditing fees, and increased share-based compensation due to the timing of the vesting of previously issued stock options.
