16:05 ET Cansortium Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Nov 30, 2021

News provided by Share this article Management to Host Conference Call Today at 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time MIAMI, Nov. 30, 2021 /CNW/ - Cansortium Inc. (CSE: TIUM.U) (OTCQX: CNTMF) ("Cansortium" or the "Company"), a vertically-integrated cannabis company operating under the Fluent™ brand, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Unless otherwise indicated, all results are presented in U.S. dollars. "We executed on several key initiatives during the quarter, including the opening of a new dispensary in Pennsylvania and two new dispensaries in Florida, bringing our total retail footprint to 29 stores," said CEO Robert Beasley. "We also received approval from the Florida Department of Health to commence operation in several new bays at our recently expanded Sweetwater facility. In fact, products from Sweetwater hit the shelves in November as planned and early customer feedback has been excellent. "During the quarter, there was a well-publicized merger between two MSOs in Florida that created a product liquidation event, which disrupted pricing in the market. We nevertheless stood our ground on pricing, which impacted sales but enabled us to hold margins relatively well and still increase adjusted EBTIDA by 34% to $4.9 million. Due to these lower sales, we are revising our 2021 revenue guidance to $63-$66 million, however we are holding our adjusted EBITDA guidance and expect to come in at the low end of our previously disclosed range of $18-$26 million." Beasley continued: "Pricing volatility in Florida has improved since the peak disruption in September, and as we enter the final month of the year, we continue to expect exiting 2021 at a strong run rate with full production from our increased capacity hitting shelves in February 2022. We have already seen increased yields due to environmental control enhancements across multiple facilities, and we are excited to dramatically improve our competitive positioning with greater inventory and a wider range of products to sell across our Florida retail footprint in 2022." Q3 2021 Financial Highlights (vs. Q3 2020) Revenue increased 9% to $15.6 million compared to $14.3 million. Florida revenue increased 4.3% to $13.1 million compared to $12.6 million. Adjusted gross profit1 increased to $9.8 million or 62.7% of revenue, compared to $9.5 million or 66.6% of revenue. Adjusted EBITDA increased 34% to $4.9 million or 31.4% of revenue, compared to $3.6 million or 25.5% of revenue. Recent Operational Highlights In August, the Company opened its 2nd store in Pennsylvania in Mechanicsburg. In September, the Company opened its 27th store in Florida in Fruitland Park, which is the city's first medical marijuana dispensary. Received approval from the Florida Department of Health to commence operations at several new bays at its Sweetwater, FL cultivation facility. Cansortium appointed a new auditor, Baker Tilly US, LLP, in preparation for reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP in 2022. 2021 Outlook The Company is revising its 2021 outlook for revenue and now expects it to range between $63-$66 million.
