Q2 2022 Financial Highlights
- The Company reported gross revenue of $10,452,313 for the three months ended April 30, 2022, an increase of $5,847,515 compared to gross revenue of $4,604,798 for the three months ended April 30, 2021, representing an increase of 127%. The growth was driven by a continued increase in the Company’s vape and concentrate offerings as well as the launch of the flower vertical. The increase from the prior year is a direct result of increasing our listings from 70 to over 300 in the current period as well as growing distribution from a few provinces to coast to coast nationally.
- For the six-month period ended April 30, 2022, the Company recorded gross revenue of $20,048,454 an increase of $13,616,383 compared to gross revenue of $6,432,071 for the six months ended April 30, 2021, representing an increase of over 212%. The increase in gross revenue was the result of the Company being fully transitioned to branded provincial sales and as a result of an increase in sales across all of its product verticals. Provincial listings increased dramatically over the latest six-month period and the prior period included a period before the Premium 5 acquisition.
- Cost of sales for the three months ended April 30, 2022 was $4,306,378, an increase of $2,222,465, compared to $2,083,913 for the three months ended April 30, 2021. Cost of sales increased as a result of increased sales but decreased on a percentage of sales basis as a result of improved biomass purchasing and improved operational efficiencies.
- Cost of sales for the six months ended April 30, 2022 was $8,962,828, an increase of $5,868,554, compared to $3,094,274 for the six months ended April 30, 2021. Cost of sales increased as a function of the increased sales results previously discussed.
- For the three months ended April 30, 2022, the Company recorded a comprehensive loss of $500,614 or nil per share compared to a comprehensive loss of $5,151,011 or $0.01 loss per share for the three months ended April 30, 2021. The improvement over the prior period was due to gross margin gains and the cost management in general and administrative expenses combined with a $410,000 unrealized decrease in loss on contingent payables.
- For the six months ended April 30, 2022, the Company recorded a comprehensive income of $5,756,599 or $0.01 income per share compared to a comprehensive loss of $8,362,093 or $0.01 loss per share for the six months ended April 30, 2021. The decrease in loss was primarily attributable to a non-cash accounting policy-related gain of $8,571,429 due to the change in fair market value between the share price used for the Premium 5 first milestone payment and the current share price at the time of award combined with the improvements in the operating business noted above.
Q2 2022 Growth, Operational, and Corporate Highlights1
- The second quarter of 2022 continued to see growing sales across Heritage’s portfolio of innovative products and expanded distribution channels, including the launch of Heritage products on two of the largest market share online medical platforms in Canada. As sales momentum builds, the Company remains focused on increasing margins and cost containment. Spending and capital expenditures by Heritage are measured by their expected return on investment and ability to generate near-term revenues.
- Heritage continues to command a large market share of concentrate products. Heritage brand Premium 5 introduced the first dabs and first live resin products in the country in 2020 and is continuing to lead the category in innovation. The Company’s products ranked first in recreational sales of concentrates in Canada, up from second in the first quarter, now having 15.2% of market share. RAD brand continues to show solid traction in all markets where they are currently offered. Recent vape sales have increased, with Heritage now ranking tenth across the country, and ranking fourth in the oils category with 7.5% market share.
- In 2021, Heritage launched pre roll and flower SKUs in multiple provinces with encouraging provincial orders. Already in a short time-frame, Heritage ranks #25 in pre-rolls and #45 in flower, according to Headset data. Heritage continues to add new products including infused pre-rolls and blunts to the flower category, and with growing popularity is expected to take an increasing share of the largest cannabis product segment in the Canadian market.
- Heritage continues to add new stock keeping units (“SKUs”) across all provinces, with recent new product launches in Ontario, PEI, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, and is participating in regular product calls. Heritage proactively manages its offerings to stay price competitive in all segments, while also delivering innovative products and new flavour profiles to keep up with consumer demands, and successfully win provincial product calls.
- On June 6, 2022, Heritage announced that it had signed a definitive agreement for the supply of its products to a major LP with one of the leading market share for sale on its medical platform. The major LP has completed its initial purchase of Heritage brands, including RAD, Premium 5, and CB4, and are now offering Heritage products on the platform with the first shipment of 12 stock keeping units (“SKUs”) completed in May. The relationship will also encompass white labelling of some products based on Heritage’s product quality, variety, consistency, industry proven technology and innovation.
