Further, we sold over $600 million of our own brands through our own stores, which speaks to the strength of our retail business as a key competitive advantage – our gross margins are strong, we have an unrivaled geographically diverse footprint, and are constantly improving the cannabis customer experience.

Non-GAAP Financial and Performance Measures

Curaleaf reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP and uses a number of financial measures and ratios when assessing its results and measuring overall performance. Some of these financial measures and ratios are not calculated in accordance with GAAP. Curaleaf refers to certain Non-GAAP financial measures and ratios such as “Adjusted Gross Profit”, “Adjusted Gross Margin”, “Adjusted Net Loss”, “Adjusted Net Loss Per Share”, “Adjusted EBITDA”, and “Adjusted EBITDA Margin”. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company defines “Adjusted Gross Profit” as Gross Profit net of cost of goods sold and related other add-backs. “Adjusted Gross Margin” is defined by Curaleaf as gross profit net of add-backs divided by total revenues. “Adjusted Net Loss” is defined by Curaleaf as Net Loss less other add-backs. “Adjusted Net Loss per Share” is defined by Curaleaf as Adjusted Net Loss divided by the weighted average shares outstanding. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined by Curaleaf as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization less share-based compensation expense and other add-backs related to business development, acquisition, financing and reorganization costs. “Adjusted EBITDA Margin” is defined by Curaleaf as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue. Curaleaf considers these measures to be an important indicator of the financial strength and performance of our business. We believe the adjusted results presented provide relevant and useful information for investors because they clarify our actual operating performance, make it easier to compare our results with those of other companies and allow investors to review performance in the same way as our management. Since these measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, our reported results as indicators of our performance, and they may not be comparable to similarly named measures from other companies. The tables below provide reconciliations of Non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Gross profit was $78.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared with $161.8 million in the third quarter of 2022.  Adjusted gross profit net of add-backs for the fourth quarter was $165.4 million compared with $166.1 millionin the third quarter of 2022.  Adjusted gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 46.9%, a decrease of 200 basis points compared with the third quarter of 2022.  The decrease in gross margin was due to a full year allocation of $8.5 million of expenses reclassified into cost of goods sold which reduced adjusted gross margin by 240 basis points, and geographic mix; partially offset by increased operational efficiencies and the addition of higher margin Tryke, and improved international gross margins helped by the addition of Four 20 Pharma.

Adjusted EBITDA was $73.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, a decrease of 4% from $76.4 million in the third quarter of 2022 and an increase of 16% from $63.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.8%, a decrease of 170 basis points from 22.5% in the prior quarter and an increase of 20 basis points from 20.5% in the fourth quarter of 2021. The sequential decrease in Adjusted EBITDA primarily reflects lower gross profit margin driven by geographic mix and pricing pressure in certain markets, coupled with expense deleverage driven by additional headcount associated with Tryke, Four 20 Pharma, and new store openings.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended 2022 was $305.4 million, an increase of 17% from $261.8 million in 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 22.9%, an increase of 100 basis points from 21.9% in the prior year. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin primarily reflect higher revenue and higher gross margin partially offset by higher SG&A expense related to increased headcount in support of new store openings and acquisitions, and marketing in support of new product rollouts.
