WeedMD Inc. (TSXV:WMD) (“WeedMD” or the “Company”), a federally-licensed producer and distributor of medical cannabis, announces its financial results for the period ended September 30, 2017.

“With the recent announcement of our transformational large-scale greenhouse expansion plan and the execution of our industry-first cannabis supply agreements with long-term care providers, WeedMD is executing on our strategic plan,” said Bruce Dawson-Scully, CEO of WeedMD. “Our scalable expansion will ensure that we have adequate supply of cannabis to meet future medical and adult-use demand.”

Keith Merker, WeedMD CFO, added, “With a strong balance sheet and fully funded 217,800 sq. ft. first phase greenhouse expansion, we are now entering into a significant stage of growth for the Company as we continue to drive shareholder value.”

Operational & Corporate Highlights:

  • Announced a large-scale greenhouse expansion on November 22nd (see press release here and video here): A transformational transaction for WeedMD and among the most capital efficient expansions in the industry, WeedMD will increase its annual production from 1,500 kg to more than 21,000 kg by leasing 217,800 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art greenhouse space. The retrofit is fully funded with the Company’s current treasury and once fully retrofitted, the entire 14-acre facility will increase WeedMD’s annual production capacity to more than 50,000 kg. WeedMD has already received approval from Health Canada for a second-site expansion at the Strathroy site.
  • Finalized partnership with Van der Pop to bring leading female-focused brand to Canada through branded cannabis strains on November 16th (see here): This partnership brings WeedMD further along its strategic path of targeting unique and underserved demographics of the Canadian cannabis market. As the first partnership of its kind in Canada, Van der Pop-branded strains will be available through WeedMD’s website in the coming weeks.
  • Completed a $15 million bought deal financing, fully funding the Company’s 217,800 sq. ft. greenhouse expansion, on November 2nd (see here): WeedMD raised $15 million in convertible debentures to support the Company’s recently announced expansion plan.
  • Signed supply agreements with three long-term care and retirement home providers on September 26th (see here): WeedMD is the first licensed producer to enter into multiple supply contracts for seniors. The three LTC and retirement home providers total nine homes with more than 1,000 beds across Canada. Additional supply agreements are in advanced stages and are expected to be secured in the near future.
  • Acceleration of production, strain development, sales, and patient registration:During the quarter, WeedMD successfully continued its operational ramp up, resulting in steadily increased production with decreased associated costs per gram. In addition, the Company increased patient registrations and sales. WeedMD also further developed its extensive genetic bank and live cannabis plant offering, with several new strains available for sale this quarter.

Financial Highlights:

For the quarter ended Sept 30, 2017 June 30, 2017
($) ($)
Revenue 356,479 235,659
Adjusted operating loss (926,422 ) (1,280,046 )
Loss per share (basic and fully diluted) (0.01 ) (0.08 )

Total Liabilities 690,883 6,970,144
Working Capital 5,879,612 1,330,566
  • WeedMD generated $356,479 of revenue in the quarter. Revenues were derived primarily from the sale of dried medical cannabis and live cannabis plants. The Company continues to build its patient base in addition to selectively providing product and live genetics to other licensed producers.
  • Adjusted operating loss in the quarter was ($926,422), as compared to ($1,280,046) in the prior quarter. The decrease in adjusted operating loss can be attributed to the Company’s ongoing efforts to find efficiencies in the organization.  Adjusted operating loss is a non-IFRS measure which has been implemented to remove non-cash and non-recurring expenditures to provide a better indication of ongoing performance.
  • Cash of $2,746,106 at the end of the period, and current cash of $22 million. The Company now has more than $22 million cash as a result of the recent financing and ongoing exercise of warrants subsequent to the quarter end.

“WeedMD continues to build on its momentum and execute on its vision of becoming a leader in the rapidly expanding Canadian cannabis market,” said Bruce Dawson-Scully. “We look forward to providing further updates as we achieve a number of near-term milestones.”

Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (“ Khiron ” or, the “ Company ”) (TSXV: KHRN), (OTCQB: KHRNF), (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), announced today that it has re-filed its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements, together with the notes thereto, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (the “ Interim Financial Statements ”) to correct, among other things, certain 2019 comparative period information and to update certain presentation arising from the Company’s early adoption of IFRS 3 in late 2019, which changes were identified in connection with the Company’s review engagement with its auditor. The Company does not consider these adjustments either individually nor in the aggregate, to be material.

The re-filed Interim Financial Statements reflect changes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Statements of Loss and Comprehensive Loss comparative period to remove transaction fees from the income statement and capitalize them to the applicable acquisition in accordance with the Company’s early adoption of the amended IFRS 3 as set out in Note 2, and to reclassify $1 million from general and administrative expenses to transaction fees for presentation purposes to conform with the Company’s presentation used in its audited consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 (the “ Audited Annual Financial Statements ”). The re-filed interim Financial Statements also reflect changes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Statement of Changes in Shareholders’ Equity to correct the 2019 comparative period balances as they incorrectly reflect Q1 2019 period balances, update certain presentation to conform with the Company’s presentation used in its Audited Annual Financial Statements; and reduce the valuation conclusion of the Company’s acquisition of NettaGrowth International Inc. to conform with the Audited Annual Financial Statements. The re-filed Interim Financial Statements also bring forward the subsequent event note disclosure.
