Sales and Operational Highlights Subsequent to Fiscal First Quarter 2023

  • In December 2022, the Company’s Farnham Facility received its CUMCS Equivalency IMC-G.A.P. certification (the “Certification”), a leading certification standard for medical cannabis cultivation, harvest, and primary processing. Obtaining the Certification provides documented evidence that Cannara has met strict standards for quality and consistency in the cultivation, harvest and primary processing of cannabis needed for export of cannabis inputs to certain international jurisdictions, including IsraelEurope, and Australia.
  • As part of its marketing strategy, the Company designed and launched several lines of apparel and accessories to be sold online at, including Cannara’s cannabis accessories: the Tribal UNI Pro Ark and the Nugz Häpple.

The start of the lease term is set for January 2024 with a term of 11 years. This transaction will generate income and positive cash flow on an area of the Valleyfield Facility that would otherwise been unused as it is not licensed for cannabis production.

Capital Transactions

  • During the quarter, Cannara invested $3.7 million in capital expenditures which was mainly attributable to the activation of the 7th growing zone, the construction of a butane extraction lab, office and warehouse space, and initial costs related to the processing center build out at the Valleyfield Facility, in addition to capital expenditures incurred resulting from the expected increased post-harvest requirements.
  • On November 30, 2022, Cannara filed with the TSX Venture Exchange, a Notice in respect of a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”) to be transacted through the facilities of the TSX-V. Pursuant to the NCIB, Cannara may purchase up to 15,000,000 of its common shares. The Company expects that the purchase of Shares will benefit remaining shareholders by increasing their equity interest in the Company’s assets.
  • On January 12, 2023, The Company announced details of its proposal to consolidate all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on the basis of ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares for every one (1) post-consolidation common shares, subject to the approval of shareholders at the upcoming meeting of shareholders to take place on January 25, 2023, as well as TSXV approval. Upon completion of the share consolidation, it is expected that there will be approximately 87,748,132 common shares issued and outstanding, subject to adjustment for fractional shares.
  • On January 20, 2023, the Company granted a total of 378,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.18, subject to certain vesting conditions in accordance with the employee share option plan.

“In Q1 2023, we continued to execute on Cannara’s growth plan, as evidenced by the activation of our 7th grow zone at our Valleyfield Facility, our entry into the BC market and the release of 14 new high-demand SKU’s,” stated Zohar Krivorot, President & Chief Executive Officer of Cannara. “We have maintained our market share in Quebec, which we expect to increase in future quarters as we continue to expand in Ontario, British Colombia, and Saskatchewan in addition to launching in Alberta. The release of 14 new SKU’s this quarter is a testament to the hard work of all Cannara staff here and we are confident that our premium products will continue to be a hit with our ever-expanding customer base,” concluded Mr. Krivorot.

Nicholas Sosiak, Chief Financial Officer of Cannara added, “When compared to the previous year’s Q1 results, the financials improved significantly across all metrics.  However, we did experience some temporary pre-roll manufacturing capacity challenges that impacted sales during the quarter. We are working diligently on increasing internal pre-roll manufacturing capacity, and we expect to resume our significant growth trend during Q2. We expect to achieve 9 active growing zones at Valleyfield this year, having just activated our 7th, allowing us to greater volumes of premium-grade cannabis. As the Company continues to scale, we expect revenues, margins, and profits to continue to improve, and shareholders to be rewarded for their investment in Cannara. I am proud to be able to report our seventh consecutive quarter of Adjusted EBITDA in addition to currently being on track to achieving record monthly sales in January 2023,” concluded Mr. Sosiak.
