CLS Nevada September 2020 Financial and Operational Highlights
- September 2020 net revenue increased by 70.3% over September 2019, and by 21.2% over August 2020, the previous highest revenue month for the Company.
- Gross margin remained steady, with slight growth from 50.4% in August 2020 to 50.9% in September 2020, and an increase of 4% over September 2019.
- CLS’ wholesale manufacturing subsidiary successfully completed its rebrand in September, generating increased interest in the brand with its newly refined design and focus on sustainability.
A Third Consecutive Record Month
Increased sales at both CLS Nevada entities contributed to the Company’s third consecutive record monthly net revenue of $1,704,459. This result represents a 70.3% increase over September 2019, and an increase of 139% over September 2018. Traffic at the company’s Nevada retail subsidiary, Oasis Cannabis, substantially increased throughout the month; the total number of transactions processed at Oasis increased by over 3,500 from August 2020 to September 2020, including in-store, curbside, and delivery transactions. Company President and COO Andrew Glashow noted, “While our hours at Oasis are still reduced from our previous 24 hour model, the continued expansion of delivery and curbside services has allowed us to sustain the growth we saw over the summer in an incredible way. September also saw many new additions to our product offerings as more new vendors moved into the Nevada market and customers sought out new options. While we believe our City Trees products to be some of the safest and cleanest on the market, we always want to provide the best selection we can at the retail level as well, and our customers have taken notice.”
Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Binder, remarked that “Our Nevada team is exceeding the market results in western states as a whole. The concentrate category continues to expand putting us in an excellent position with our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to grow the City Trees Brand. The near-term effects of the slowdown earlier in the year are well behind us, and we’re pushing forward in a sustainable, thoughtful way.”
Increasing Industry Leadership
CLS and its Nevada subsidiaries are increasingly leading the conversation around cannabis in Nevada, despite having only a single retail location and extraction facility in the region. The Company’s wholesale manufacturing division, City Trees, successfully completed and launched its brand redesign in September, achieving early recognition for its aesthetic improvements and sustainability-minded ethos. CLS’ President and COO, Andrew Glashow, also presented at the 2020 Canaccord Genuity Virtual Cannabis Symposium in September – the first of many features for the Company in the second quarter. September marked another successful month for CLS as it continues its focus on innovation in Nevada and maintains an eye toward regional growth.
