Heritage Cannabis Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

TORONTO, September 29, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE: CANN) (OTCQX: HERTF) (“Heritage” or the “Company“), today announced its financial results as at and for the three- and nine-month periods ended July 31, 2021 (“Q3 2021“). All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Key Financial Highlights of Fiscal Q3 2021

  • Gross revenue climbed to a record $5.1 million in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of $2.7 million or 114% from the same period in the prior year.

  • Gross profit in Q3 2021 was $1.2 million, with gross margins improving 217% from -$1.1 million in the same period in the prior year.

  • SG&A costs as a percentage of revenue increased to 93% in the third quarter of 2021, compared to 55% in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was attributed to a number of one-time costs related to product launches as well as repositioning pricing on products in highly competitive categories.

  • Strong Balance sheet with net working capital of $21.5M, and cash and equivalents of $4.6 million as of July 31, 2021.

“Given the headwinds that many are facing in the industry, Heritage successfully expanded its product portfolio and distribution across Canada quarter-over-quarter which culminated with a second straight record quarter for gross revenues.” stated David Schwede, Chief Executive Officer of Heritage. “While the impact of the forest fires on the West Coast forced us to curtail production and shipments, our team worked extremely hard to produce a record top-line quarter. Also, we made a strategic decision in the quarter to invest in our platform – a combination of one-time product innovation costs and increasing our bench strength – in order to ensure we are positioned to sustain continued growth in the coming quarters. Our strategy shift, in less than one-year, has been dramatic and successful. We now have seven brands in Canada that are gaining strong followings in both retail and on-line sales channels, and our expanded U.S. strategy is continuing to advance with our partnerships in the near-term coupled with our U.S. e-commerce launch for ArthroCBD. While we are continuing to make changes to strengthen the platform, we are very confident that the combination of our popular brands and product innovation expertise has formed the foundation for a platform that will continue to compete and capture more market share.”

Operational Highlights

  • Along with recurring orders from provincial boards and on-line retailers, Heritage continued to grow its distribution capabilities across Canada, adding new SKUs in Ontario and both Western and Eastern Canada, as well as launched five brands on cannmart.ca and 61 SKUs on mendocannabis.ca, a medical platform in Quebec.

  • Entered the flower market with the successful shipments of its first orders of RAD Reefer (flower) and RAD Doobie (pre-rolls) to the province of British Columbia and expects to introduce both products to additional provinces in late 2021. This is the largest category in Canadian legal sales, representing 64% of total sales in the latest data from Health Canada.

  • RAD Shatter products were the fastest growing products in Ontario in the concentrates category and achieved #3 and #4 concentrate overall within one month of launching in the province. Additionally, in the oils category Heritage saw 40% growth in month-over-month sales, and vape sales grew 164% month-over-month.

  • Heritage has become a top 3 provider of concentrate and vape products in New Brunswick, and the Company saw 175% growth in sales in the province over the month of June 2021. In Nova Scotia, Heritage brands have 17.8% of the market share in the concentrates category, and RAD alone grew from 7.5% to 11.7% market share in a three month time-frame.

  • In the United States, Heritage launched ArthroCBD, a 25 mg CBD softgel capsule brand formulated using VESIsorb®. The ArthroCBD launch marks the first of a pipeline of over seven new medicinal hemp based CBD product offerings by Heritage.

Corporate Update and U.S. Growth Initiatives

  • Announced a five-year partnership with Como Health LLC, doing business as 3Fifteen Primo Cannabis (“3Fifteen”), a rapidly growing cannabis company with five dispensary licenses. 3Fifteen holds one of 11 manufacturing licenses approved to operate in the state of Missouri allowing Heritage to produce branded med-rec products to be offered to medical cannabis consumers. The partnership will grant shelf minimums for Heritage’s branded products in 3Fifteen’s Missouri dispensaries.

  • On June 1, 2021, Heritage announced it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent to purchase all of the issued and outstanding common shares of California based Capna Intellectual/dba Bloom Brands (“Bloom”) in an all share transaction. While this transaction remains in the diligence phase, the Company is working to ensure that if successfully completed, Bloom will land on the Heritage platform and be positioned for growth.

  • On May 4, 2021, Heritage issued common shares (“Common Shares”) in the capital of the Company to Merida Capital Holdings LLC (“Merida”). The issuance of 495,049 Common Shares at a deemed price of $0.125 per Common Share were issued to Merida for consideration in connection to services provided pursuant to a consulting agreement for the above mentioned partnership with 3Fifteen.
