We are focused on operating with excellence to meet the growing demand for our products and positioning the Company to create substantial shareholder value.” 

Neil Davidson, Chief Financial Officer of Curaleaf, added, “The third quarter demonstrated the power of our increased scale as we reported record total and managed revenue, record adjusted EBITDA and expanded operating margins as we benefited from increased scale and strong demand in key markets. Our main focus continues to be prudent capital allocation, operational improvement and integration of our pending and closed acquisitions to drive continued strong overall growth and operating leverage.”

Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2019

Managed Revenue for the third quarter was $73.2 million, an increase of 201% over the prior year and 33% over the prior quarter. Pro Forma Revenue for the third quarter was $129.0 million.

Total Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 increased 189% year-over-year to $61.8 million, compared to $21.4 million in the third quarter of 2018. Total Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 increased 27% over the prior quarter.

Retail and wholesale revenue increased more than three-fold to $50.7 million during the quarter, compared to $16.6 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in retail and wholesale revenue was primarily due to organic growth in Florida, New York and acquisitions in Arizona and Maryland. Additionally, wholesale revenue increased in Massachusetts as a result of the number of newly opened adult-use dispensaries.

Gross profit before impact of biological assets for the third quarter of 2019 was $34.7 million, compared to $13.9 million for the third quarter of 2018. The increase was due to continued improvement in the operating capacity of the Company’s cultivation and processing facilities.

Gross profit on cannabis sales was $23.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, resulting in a 47% margin, compared to $9.1 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase was due to the mix in retail revenue over wholesale revenue and continued improvement in the operating capacity of the Company’s cultivation and processing facilities.

Adjusted EBITDA was $9.0 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to a loss of $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2018.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $7.4 million, compared to a net loss of $35.6 million in the third quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in other expense related to a loss on the change in fair value of convertible notes in 2018, partially offset by an increase of $7.7 million in depreciation and amortization and an increase of $4.7 million in share-based compensation, both of which are non-cash, an increase of $5.2 million in one-time charges, primarily business development, acquisition and financing related, an increase of $3.2 million in net interest expense and an increase of $2.6 million in the provision for income tax.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2019, we had $91.2 million of cash, $106.0 million of outstanding debt and approximately 464.1 million fully diluted shares outstanding.

Non-IFRS Financial and Performance Measures

In this press release Curaleaf refers to certain non-IFRS financial measures such as “Pro Forma Revenue”, “Managed Revenue”, “Gross Profit on Cannabis Sales” and “Adjusted EBITDA”. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Curaleaf defines “Managed Revenue” as total revenue plus revenue from entities for which the Company has a management contract but does not consolidate the financial results based on IFRS 10 – Consolidated Financial Statements. Curaleaf defines “Pro Forma Revenue” as “Managed Revenue” plus revenue from operations of pending and closed acquisitions as if such acquisitions occurred on January 1, 2019. The Company defines “Gross Profit on Cannabis Sales” as retail and wholesale revenues less cost of goods sold. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined by Curaleaf as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization less share-based compensation expense and one-time charges related to business development, acquisition and financing related costs. 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 IFRS, 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 following tables provide a reconciliation of each of the non-IFRS measures to its closest IFRS measure.
