Management Commentary 

“This was another exciting quarter with record operating cash flow and free cash flow as we continue to see the tremendous execution exhibited by our team”, said Obie Strickler, CEO of Grown Rogue. “Our $6M+ of revenue was a new company record by more than 18%, highlighting our continued focus on producing high quality cannabis that delights our team and customers. We continue to generate substantial free cash flow margins and are focused on using that capital to bring our products to new markets and expand our consumer base. We are really excited about our recently announced agreement with Goodness Growth to expand our cultivation expertise into additional markets and are encouraged by the positive feedback we are seeing and hearing from those markets. In Q2, we recorded over $270k in revenue from this agreement, which was more than anticipated as the agreement was not definitive until after the quarter ended. I’m pleased with the success we are seeing so far in Q3 and anticipate strong growth both in Minnesota and from the launch of adult use sales in Maryland on July 1st,” continued Mr. Strickler. Our relentless focus on genetics continues to reap benefits in both Oregon and Michiganas we take pride in being tastemakers in the industry. We are proud to be launching new proprietary genetics combined with strain specific packaging in Michigan as well as craft pre-rolls in Oregon in the coming weeks. We believe that our philosophy and practice of constant iteration and improvement will engender more customer trust and deepen the relationship we have with our existing fans,” Mr. Strickler continued.

“Regarding capital allocation, we continue to focus on producing free cash flow to best position ourselves to meet our balance sheet obligations while being prepared for new market opportunities, using only a modest amount on increased working capital. With our internal cash generation and our cash position at the highest ever reported, we feel confident in our ability to take advantage of high-quality opportunities as they arise.

I want to thank the entire Grown Rogue team for their continued efforts and look forward to updating shareholders on our new market efforts in due course.”

1. The Company’s “Free cash flow” metric is defined by cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures.
2. The Company’s “aEBITDA,” or “Adjusted EBITDA,” is a non-IFRS measure used by management that does not have any prescribed meaning by IFRS and that may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company defines “EBITDA” as the Company’s net income or loss for a period, as reported, before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and is further adjusted to remove transaction costs, stock-based compensation expense, accretion expense, gain (loss) on derecognition of derivative liabilities, the effects of fair-value accounting for biological assets and inventory, as well as other non-cash items and items not representative of operational performance as reported in net income (loss). Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for the impact of various significant or unusual transactions. The Company believes that this is a useful metric to evaluate its operating performance.


EBITDA and aEBITDA are non-IFRS measures and do not have standardized definitions under IFRS. The Company has provided the non-IFRS financial measures, which are not calculated or presented in accordance with IFRS, as supplemental information and in addition to the financial measures that are calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS. These supplemental non-IFRS financial measures are presented because management has evaluated the financial results both including and excluding the adjusted items and believe that the supplemental non-IFRS financial measures presented provide additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of the business. These supplemental non-IFRS financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an alternative to, and should only be considered in conjunction with, the IFRS financial measures presented herein. Accordingly, the following information provides reconciliations of the supplemental non-IFRS financial measures, presented herein to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS.
