Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2022) – Delivra Health Brands Inc. (TSXV: DHB) (OTCQB: DHBUF) (formerly, Harvest One Cannabis Inc.) (“Delivra Health” or the “Company“) , a consumer packaged goods company uniquely positioned in the health and wellness sector, is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

 

Management Commentary

“The first quarter of fiscal 2023 reflects our continued progress of executing on our key objectives and creating shareholder value as we work towards achieving profitability. Despite a reduction in revenue this quarter due to the timing of customer ordering patterns, we improved our gross profit margin to 51% from 33%, in the comparable quarter last year. We also reduced selling, general and administrative (“SG&A“) expenses by 30% and further improved our adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA“)(1) to $(0.15) million from $(0.78) million in the same period last year, bringing our financial results closer to a breakeven position which is a milestone for a health and wellness company operating in a very competitive environment,” said Gord Davey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delivra Health.

 

Mr. Davey continued, “Furthermore, our team has increased the distribution of our Dream Water products by partnering with over 2,400 Casey’s General Stores, as well as launching our new innovative six count gummies and Dream Water Immunity shots. We expect these initiatives to strengthen the Company’s business in the coming quarters.”

 

Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue: For the three months ended September 30, 2022, net revenue was $1.73 million compared to $2.13 million in the same period in the prior year. The $0.40 million or 19% reduction in net revenue was mainly due to a reduction in the sales of Dream Water™ in the US, which was driven by the timing of customer ordering patterns.
  • Gross profit and gross profit margin: For the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company reported gross profit of $0.88 million and a 51% gross profit margin compared to $0.71 million and a 33% gross profit margin from continued operations in same period last year. This increase is attributed to changes in the Company’s customer and channel mix and operational improvements.
  • Expenses including SG&A and excluding non-cash items: For the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company reported expenses of $1.04 million compared to $1.49 million in the same period last year, representing a 30% reduction for the quarter from continued operations. The reduction is mainly driven by lower sales and marketing expenses to conserve cash.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1): For the three months ended September 30, 2022, the Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $(0.15) million compared to $(0.78) million in the same period last year, representing a $0.63 million or 80% year over year improvement from continued operations. This reduction is driven by management’s efforts in focusing on margin improvement supported by efficient administrative and selling support functions.

Non-IFRS Measures, Reconciliation and Discussion

This press release contains references to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-IFRS financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of the Company’s loss from operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization and adjusted for share-based compensation, common shares issued for services, fair value effects of accounting for biological assets and inventories, asset impairment and write-downs, and other non-cash items, and is a non-IFRS measure.

 

This measure can be used to analyze and compare profitability among companies and industries, as it eliminates the effects of financing and capital expenditures. It is often used in valuation ratios and can be compared to enterprise value and revenue. This measure does not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

 

There are no comparable IFRS financial measures presented in Delivra Health’s financial statements. Reconciliations of the supplemental non-IFRS measure are presented in the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended September 30, 2022. This non-IFRS financial measure is presented because management has evaluated the financial results both including and excluding the adjusted items and believes that the non-IFRS financial measure presented provides additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of the business. The Company believes that the supplemental measure provides information which is useful to shareholders and investors in understanding the Company’s performance and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers.

 

The non-IFRS financial measure should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for, or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with the IFRS financial measures presented in the Company’s financial statements. For more information, please see “Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)” and “Non-IFRS Measures” in the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended September 30, 2022, which is available under the Company’s profile on www.sedar.com.

 

Notes:

  1. This is a non-IFRS reporting measure. For a reconciliation of this measure to the nearest IFRS measure, see “Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)” and “Non-IFRS Measures” in the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended September 30, 2022.
