FISCAL 2022 CONSOLIDATED OPERATING FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
- Total revenues were $12.5 million for fiscal 2022 and $12.0 million for fiscal 2021. The Company owns 91% of Alternative Medicine Association (AMA), the Company's cultivation and production subsidiary focused on the cultivation and sale of medical and adult-use cannabis products, and 100% of CBD product manufacturer Infused MFG LLC (Infused). The Company's revenue is derived from wholesale cannabis sales in Nevada (AMA), and from the sale of hemp-derived consumer packaged goods (Infused) under the Canna HempÔ brand sold across the US via ecommerce at cannahemp.com. In Nevada, cannabis sales surged during the Covid 19 pandemic but began to recede in late 2021. As a result, the Company faced continued wholesale pricing pressure in the state, where prices have steadily declined since its highs in 2020. Despite the market correction, AMA has seen consistent sales compared to 2021 with a 4% increase in cannabis flower sales and a 34% increase in concentrate products and vape sales. The Company continued to secure shelf space in dispensaries and consistently ranked among to top sold brands in the state based on the strength of AMA's value offerings and premium products in the Las Vegas market. As prices normalize to pre-pandemic levels, the Company remains confident for strong growth in 2023 and expects the demand for flower and extracted products to accelerate as adult-use consumption lounges are launched.
- Sales of the Company's hemp-infused consumer packaged goods remained soft during fiscal 2022 due to decreased wholesale demand in dispensaries and brick and mortar accounts and macro-economic headwinds driving down consumer spending.
- Expenses were $20.2 million for fiscal 2022 and $10.6 million for fiscal 2021. The increase was primarily due to a one-time, non-cash goodwill impairment expense of $11,540,439 related to Infused, as well as to an increase in cannabis transferred to production which increased state taxes payable to the state of Nevada related to AMA. Without this one-time charge, expenses dropped by $1,958,730 from the previous year.
- Gross margin was $2.7 million for fiscal 2022 compared $4.8 million during fiscal 2021. The decrease in gross margin from the prior year is due to the drop in the price of cannabis which has been reflected in the realized value of biological assets.
General and administration expenses
- G&A were $2.0 million compared to $1.3 million during fiscal 2021. This increase from the prior year is driven by increased office expenses and advertising due to an increase in AMA revenues as cannabis sales begin to normalize to pre-pandemic levels in the state of Nevada. Offsetting these increases was a decrease in investor relations and travel and entertainment. It is the priority of the Company's executive management to continue to reduce costs, with the goal of reaching consistent profitability in the near future.
- Net loss was $18.1 million for fiscal 2022 and $6.3 million for fiscal 2021. Without the non-cash items, the net loss is $3.8 million for fiscal 2022 and $4.3 million for fiscal 2021.
- Adjusted EBITDA loss was $3.7 million for fiscal 2022 and $2.2 million for fiscal 2021.
