SMITHS FALLS, ONAug. 14, 2019 /CNW/ – Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019. All financial information in this press release is reported in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated. This press release is intended to be read in conjunction with the Company’s Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Management Discussion & Analysis for the three months ended June 30, 2019, which and will be filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and will be available at www.canopygrowth.com.

In first quarter fiscal 2020, Canopy Growth harvested 40,960 kg of product, surpassing its previous estimate of 34,000 kilograms. The Q1 harvest is the first full-scale harvest since the retrofitting of its large-scale greenhouse facilities started in calendar 2018, and with a majority of the work completed at MirabelDelta, and Aldergrove facilities, the Company is now shifting its focus to optimizing these facilities for yield and cost.  The Company believes these efforts will contribute to both revenue growth and gross margin improvements in coming months.  The recent Q1 harvest demonstrates the Company’s ability to scale production of ‘high-THC’ strains of cannabis, representing over 70% of the harvest, which positions the Company to better meet the burgeoning demand for high-THC products in retail.  The Company also saw a steady increase of recreational retail sales which continues to be the primary channel for reaching new consumers.

“The Company has two primary objectives as we complete Q1 2020 and look to the remainder of the fiscal year,” said Mark Zekulin, CEO, Canopy Growth.  “First, the Company remains focused on laying the foundation for dominance in an emerging global opportunity. This means investments in developing intellectual property, building brands, building international reach, and ensuring scaled production capability for current and future products.  Second, we are fixated on the process of evolving from builders to operators over the remainder of this fiscal year, meaning that as our expansion program comes to a close in Canada, and as new value-add products come to market in Canada, we demonstrate a sustainable, high margin, profitable Canadian business.”

“Fiscal 2020 is going to be another exciting time for the cannabis industry as we close in on the launch of new product formats.  Our recent harvests are proof that our focus on operational excellence is working, and we look forward to showing both our Canadian and U.S. customers what we’ve been working on behind the scenes to prepare for the next wave of products coming later this year,” said Zekulin.  “Internationally we are now executing on the infrastructure we have spent the last several years building, with just under 1,000 kg or kg equivalents of dried flower, oil and softgel products exported from Canada since April 1, and domestic, commercial production now underway in Germany (C3), Denmark (Spectrum Therapeutics) and the United States (CBD only).”

In Canada, the Company believes that macro events are increasingly relevant to its performance today and through the remainder of the fiscal year. Having built an ambitious sales and operations structure, the Company looks forward to the successful launch of new cannabis formats and an acceleration in store openings across the country. Today, both Ontario and Quebec – Canada’s two most populous provinces – have one store for every 595,000 and 495,000 people, respectively, versus a saturation rate in Colorado, for example, of 10,000. The Company as such applauds announcements by both provinces to license further retail locations.  The Company will continue to examine alignment of its strategy to market dynamics as the Canadian retail landscape unfolds, but remains confident in its Canadian plans today, the long-term potential of the Canadian market, and Canopy’s positioning to succeed as the market develops.

In the United States market, our team has been actively developing a range of high-quality CBD products and product marketing plans and securing the production resources necessary to bring products to the U.S. market by the end of this fiscal year. The Company has developed a broad CBD product offering that includes skincare and cosmetics, topical creams, vape products, beverages, edibles, oils and softgels, and remains on track to unveil CBD products this fiscal year.

The Company has been working since this past January to identify and contract a robust, scalable supply chain to get CBD products into the market.  In addition to the thousands of acres of hemp planted in the United States, the U.S. team has already procured quantities of hemp biomass for processing.  The Company’s supply chain will be augmented, starting next fiscal year, by corporate assets including extraction and production resources at the Company’s facility in Kirkwood, New York as well as additional manufacturing facilities for producing vape and beverage products, in select locations in the United States. The Company has already begun work on these facilities, though all locations have not yet been announced.

To stand up a new CBD business in the United States, the Company has made significant pre-revenue investments in building a strong team, having established offices in California and Colorado over the past two quarters, with additional offices coming in Illinois and New York. Further, significant headquarters resources, as reflected in Adjusted EBITDA losses attributed to corporate operations below, are devoted to U.S. and global expansion plans.

Canopy Growth sold 10,549 kilograms and kilogram equivalents in Q1 2020, up 13% over Q4 2019.  In Q1 2020, the Company generated gross revenue of $60.8 million from the sale of dry flower format products in the Canadian recreational market, representing an increase of 88% from dried flower sales in Q4 2019. Included in dried cannabis sales in Q1 2020 are sales of 1.4 million higher-margin, pre-rolled cannabis products which represented $9.7 million – or 16% – of our total recreational cannabis revenue.

In Q1 2020, the Company generated gross revenue in the medical market totaling $23.6 million, of which $16.4 million dollars or 70% of gross medical revenue was generated by oil sales. Oil sales in the medical market include sales by subsidiary C3, as well as the Company’s traditional finished oils and softgels.  Dried flower sales accounted for $7.2 million dollars of gross medical revenue.

During Q1 2020, we evaluated the form, strain, and estimated on-hand provincial and territorial inventory levels against the recent demand and sales trends that have been observed in the recreational market to ensure we make adjustments to our supply chain based on the purchasing preferences of recreational consumers.  As a result of this evaluation, we believe that the risk of an over-supply of certain oil and softgel formats may exist in certain markets due, in part, to incomplete retail platforms in most provinces.  Based on this assessment, we have estimated variable consideration that may result from rights of return in the amount of $8 million dollars in gross revenue, which corresponds to estimated future returns of $6.4 million, net of excise tax, and the estimated return amount has been reflected in net revenue.

First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Gross Margin (before the fair value impacts in cost of sales) Overview (See Non-IFRS Measures)

Gross margin before fair value impacts in cost of sales in Q1 2020 was $13.2 million, or 15% of net revenue. Comparatively, in Q1 2019 gross margin before fair value impacts in cost of sales was $11.1 million, or 43% of net revenue. The lower gross margin percentage in Q1 2020 was primarily attributable to the impact of operating costs of $16.2 million relating to facilities not yet cultivating cannabis or producing cannabis-related products, or which had under-utilized capacity that resulted in adjustments related to the net realizable value of inventory.  Additionally, there was a shift in product mix in Q1 2020 away from higher-margin, advanced manufactured products due to inventories evening out.

Canopy continues to invest in the finalization of our Canadian cultivation facilities, our hemp-based CBD business, and our advanced manufacturing capabilities in Smiths Falls, Ontario in preparation for the second phase of Canadian recreational cannabis. We expect our gross margins to improve in the coming quarters when all of the cultivation & processing are in use and approaching planned capacity.

Inventory production costs expensed to cost of sales for Q1 2020 were $77.3 million as compared to $14.8 million in Q1 2019. These costs were primarily comprised of the costs of the inventory sold in the period, distribution charges, and the operating costs relating to facilities that were not yet cultivating cannabis, producing cannabis-related products, or had under-utilized capacity.

1Share-based compensation expense and depreciation and amoritization are non-cash expenses

The increase in sales and marketing expense in Q1 2020 over the comparative period was primarily due to increased staffing as we build-out our network of Tweed and Tokyo Smoke-branded retail stores in Canada; increased number of employees in our marketing and sales functions supporting our domestic and international markets; investments aimed at driving brand awareness and educating consumers through various marketing and promotional campaigns. In addition, we’re also investing ahead of revenue to prepare for marketing campaigns for the launch of the second phase of recreational cannabis consumer products in Canada, as well as CBD products in the United States, both expected later this year.

The increase in research and development expense in Q1 2020 over Q1 2019 was due to Canopy Growth’s investment in new research and development efforts. Included in this are costs associated with hiring advanced degree researchers and engineers, in areas of vape R&D, plant genetics, applied technology and cannabis-based medical therapy clinical research. The new efforts resulted in the Company incurring higher compensation costs associated with the teams conducting research and development activities, costs associated with advanced product and system development and testing, as well as costs associated with conducting external laboratory testing and clinical trials for CBD-based human and animal health products.

General and administration expense in Q1 2020 were higher than Q1 2019 due to an increase in costs associated with enhancing our finance and information technology capabilities, higher public company compliance and regulatory requirements, and administrative costs associated with expanding our operations.

Acquisition-related costs in Q1 2020 increased significantly over Q1 2019 due higher merger and acquisition activity during the current period, most notably entering into and implementing the plan of arrangement with Acreage and closing the acquisitions of C3 and This Works.

The increase in share-based compensation expense is primarily attributable to the continued increase in the number of stock options granted to employees, which is primarily related to the increase in the number of employees of the Company from approximately 1,400 at June 30, 2018 to approximately 3,850 at June 30, 2019. The number of outstanding stock options increased from 19.0 million at June 30, 2018 to 30.7 million at June 30, 2019. Additionally, the grant date fair value of the stock options has increased over the past year, which is primarily attributable to the Company’s higher stock price.

First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Adjusted EBITDA summary (See Non-IFRS Measures)

Adjusted EBITDA in Q1 2020 amounted to a loss of $92.0 million, reflecting continuing losses in our core operations in Canada and Europe as we scale as a new business serving a completely new sector, make investments ahead of revenue in many new markets around the world, and make investments in R&D that we believe will generate future value as we build a portfolio of intellectual property that can be used to generate new profit streams in the future. The Company believes these pre-revenue investments are necessary to position the Company to generate a significant and sustained increase in shareholder value over the long-term.

Total other expense, net was $1.1 billion in Q1 2020 as compared to $63 million in Q1 2019. The increase is primarily attributable to a non-cash charge of $1.2 billion on the extinguishment of warrants held by Constellation Brands (“Constellation”) upon the amendment of the Investor Rights Agreement between Canopy Growth and Constellation.

Non-IFRS Measures
Gross margin percentage, before fair value impacts in cost of sales, a non-IFRS measure, is a key operational metric that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

This measure is calculated as net revenue less inventory production costs expensed to cost of sales, divided by net revenue, and may be computed from the consolidated statements of operations presented within this news release.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, is a key operational metric that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense, fair value changes and other non-cash items, and further adjusted to remove acquisition-related costs. The Company attributes Adjusted EBITDA to its operations and corporate overhead, strategic investments and business developments, and non-operating or under-utilized facilities. The Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation is presented within this news release and explained in Management’s Discussion & Analysis under “Adjusted EBITDA (Non-IFRS Measure)”, a copy of which will be filed on SEDAR.
