Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Summary

R e v e nu e s :

Net revenue of $131 million in Q2 FY2022 was a decline of 3% versus Q2 FY2021. Total net cannabis revenue of $95 million in Q2 FY2022, represented an increase of 1% over Q2 FY2021. Excluding the impact from acquired businesses, net revenue declined 13% and cannabis revenue declined 14% versus Q2 FY2021.

G r o s s margin:

Reported gross margin in Q2 FY2022 was (54%) as compared to 19% in Q2 FY2021. Excluding non-cash charges related to inventory write-downs and inventory step-up charges from acquisitions, as well as certain other non-recurring items including Canadian government payroll subsidies pursuant to a COVID-19 relief program, gross margin would have been approximately 12%.  Inventory write-downs in Q2 FY22 amounted to $87 million and primarily relate to excess Canadian cannabis inventory resulting from lower sales relative to forecast as well as declines in expected near-term demand. Gross margin in Q2 FY2022 was further impacted by lower production output and price compression in the Canadian recreational business as well as higher third-party shipping, distribution and warehousing costs across North America .

O p e rat in g expenses:

Total SG&A ("SG&A") expenses in Q2 FY2022 declined by 15% versus Q2 FY2021, driven by year-over-year reductions in General & Administrative ("G&A") and Research and Development ("R&D") expenses partially offset by an increase in Sales & Marketing ("S&M") expenses. G&A expenses declined 49% year-over-year primarily due to reductions in staffing and professional fees and benefit from payroll subsidies received from the Canadian government in Q2 FY2022, pursuant to a COVID-19 relief program. R&D expenses declined 38% year-over-year principally due to project timing. S&M expenses increased 49% year-over-year primarily due a return to more normal advertising and promotions spending in Q2 FY2022, compared to the prior year, higher sponsorship fees associated with BioSteel's partnership deals and increased advertising expenses associated with new product launches.

N e t Earnings:

Net Earnings in Q2 FY2022 amounted to a loss of $16 million, which is an $80 million improvement versus Q2 FY2021, driven primarily by Other Income totaling $196 million during Q2 FY2022 mostly attributable to non-cash fair value changes of $233 million.

Adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted EBITDA loss in Q2 FY2022 was $163 million, a $77 million wider loss versus Q2 FY2021 driven by lower sales, a decline in gross margins, partially offset by the reduction in our total selling, general and administrative expense. Adjusted EBITDA loss in Q2 FY2022, excluding non-cash inventory write-downs would have been a loss of $76 million .

F r e e Cash Flow:

Free Cash Flow in Q2 FY2022 was an outflow of $101 million, a 47% decrease in outflow vs Q2 FY2021. Relative to Q2 FY2021, the Free Cash Flow outflow reduction reflects the decrease in cash used for operating activities and the lower purchases of property, plant and equipment.

C as h Position:

Cash and Short-term Investments amounted to $2.0 billion at September 30 , 2021, representing a decrease of $0.3 billion from $2 .3 billion at March 31 , 2021 reflecting EBITDA losses and capital investments.

Outlook

Pushing out positive Adjusted EBITDA target due to market share challenges in the Canadian recreational business and a slower-than-expected ramp-up of U.S. distribution for BioSteel

  • The Company continues to expect revenue acceleration in the second half of FY2022 but the magnitude and pace of improvement is expected to be more modest than previously anticipated. The Company is focused on stabilizing its market share of the Canadian recreational cannabis in the second half of FY2022. Distribution expansion of BioSteel is expected to accelerate in the second half of FY2022 but shipments may depend on timing of chain authorizations and associated shelf resets.

  • The Company is taking steps to improve its Canadian recreational business, with increased supply of in-demand high THC flower products and new product launches across flower, pre-roll joints, vapes, edibles and beverages expected to improve market share. Additionally, the Company recently implemented a portfolio optimization strategy that is designed to improve distribution of high-velocity and high-margin products while reducing supply chain complexity and improving service levels on priority SKUs. The portfolio optimization work, along with increased sales, is expected to lead to improved gross margin in the Canadian operations.

  • The Company remains optimistic about its growth opportunities in the U.S. for both its BioSteel ready-to-drink ("RTD") beverages and its portfolio of CBD brands. Brand awareness continues to rise, velocity is tracking in-line with expectations and feedback from distributors and retailers has been positive. BioSteel is expected to see its distribution ramp up over the balance of FY2022 and into FY2023 driven by increased listings with national and regional chain accounts.

  • Implementation of the previously announced cost savings program is well underway, with the Company having realized $70 million, including $32 million in Q2 FY2022, of the $150 million to $200 million in cost savings expected by the end of the first half of FY2023. The Company is taking steps to reduce/delay discretionary spending and further tighten G&A expenses, an effort that is also expected to contribute to the Company achieving positive adjusted EBITDA.

  • Further mitigating impact to Free Cash Flow through a reduced CapEx plan, with FY2022 CapEx now expected to be in the range of $100 million to $150 million .

Second Q u ar te r Fiscal 2022 Business Highlights

Amid a highly competitive Canadian recreational market, increased market share in vapes and edibles and maintained market leadership in premium flower category

  • In Q2 FY2022, increased vape market share by 20 bps to 8.5% 4 and increased edibles market share by 50 bps to 8.7%, from Q1 FY2022.

  • Maintained #1 market share in premium flower category in Q2 FY2022 with 13.2%, down 310 bps quarter over quarter, #2 market share in the value flower category in Q2 FY2022 with 18.1%, down 540 bps sequentially.

  • Market share softness across flower categories was driven by insufficient supply of flower with in-demand attributes, including higher THC, in the premium and mainstream categories as well heightened competition focused on single strain offerings in the value flower category.

  • Flower products with in-demand attributes, including higher THC, have begun coming to market, with supply expected to build over 2H FY2022.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Revenue Review

Canadian Cannabis

  • Recreational B2B net sales in Q2 FY2022 decreased 1% over prior year period primarily due to insufficient supply of flower products with in-demand attributes and continued price compression, particularly in the value-priced dried flower category. These factors were largely offset by contribution from the acquisitions of Ace Valley and Supreme Cannabis.
  • Recreational B2C net sales in Q2 FY2022 decreased 11% versus Q2 FY2021 largely driven by the rapid increase in third party retail locations across provinces.
  • Medical net revenue in Q2 FY2022 decreased 6% from Q2 FY2021 driven primarily by higher average order sizes offset by a fewer number of orders.

International Cannabis

  • C 3 revenue in Q2 FY2022 decreased 13% year-over-year as a result of increased competition as well as the negative impact of FX, as the Canadian dollar has strengthened against the Euro compared to a year ago.
  • Other revenue in Q2 FY2022 increased 98% over the prior year period primarily due to growth in U.S. CBD sales.

Other Consumer Products

  • S&B vaporizer revenue in Q2 FY2022 decreased 34% over Q2 FY2021 in part due to a strong comparison during the year-ago period,as well as shipping restrictions and production shortages caused by global supply chain difficulties.
  • This Works sales in Q2 FY2022 increased 17% over Q2 FY2021, driven by Amazon and third-party e-commerce sales.
  • BioSteel sales in Q2 FY2022 increased 47% over Q2 FY2021 driven by the launch of RTD beverages and expanded distribution in the U.S. market.

The second quarter fiscal 2022 and second quarter fiscal 2021 financial results presented in this press release have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Such factors include, without limitation, changes in laws, regulations and guidelines and our compliance with such laws, regulations and guidelines; the risk that the COVID-19 pandemic may disrupt our operations and those of our suppliers and distribution channels and negatively impact the demand for and use of our products; consumer demand for cannabis and U.S. hemp products; our limited operating history; the risks and uncertainty regarding future product development; our reliance on licenses issued by and contractual arrangements with various federal, state and provincial governmental authorities; the risk that cost savings and any other synergies from the CBI Group Investments may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; risks associated with jointly owned investments; risks relating to our current and future operations in emerging markets; future levels of revenues and the impact of increasing levels of competition; risks related to the protection and enforcement of our intellectual property rights; our ability to manage disruptions in credit markets or changes to our credit ratings; future levels of capital, environmental or maintenance expenditures, general and administrative and other expenses; the success or timing of completion of ongoing or anticipated capital or maintenance projects; risks related to the integration of acquired businesses; the timing and manner of the legalization of cannabis in the United States ; business strategies, growth opportunities and expected investment; the adequacy of our capital resources and liquidity, including but not limited to, availability of sufficient cash flow to execute our business plan (either within the expected timeframe or at all); counterparty risks and liquidity risks that may impact our ability to obtain loans and other credit facilities on favorable terms; the potential effects of judicial, regulatory or other proceedings, or threatened litigation or proceedings, on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows; risks related to stock exchange restrictions; risks associated with divestment and restructuring; volatility in and/or degradation of general economic, market, industry or business conditions; our exposure to risks related to an agricultural business, including wholesale price volatility and variable product quality; third-party transportation risks; compliance with applicable environmental, economic, health and safety, energy and other policies and regulations and in particular health concerns with respect to vaping and the use of cannabis and U.S. hemp products in vaping devices; the anticipated effects of actions of third parties such as competitors, activist investors or federal, state, provincial, territorial or local regulatory authorities, self-regulatory organizations, plaintiffs in litigation or persons threatening litigation; changes in regulatory requirements in relation to our business and products; and the factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2021 . Readers are cautioned to consider these and other factors, uncertainties and potential events carefully and not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
