Supreme Cannabis (TSX: FIRE) last night reported its third quarter 2021 financial results, reporting net revenues of $13.6 million, which amounted to a 22.6% quarter over quarter decrease in sales. The company managed to post a positive adjusted EBITDA figure however, of just $460.
Revenues for the quarter were down as a result of ongoing COVID-19 headwinds, as well as softness in the market – the same problem multiple licensed producers found themselves plagued with for this time period. Revenues of $13.6 million saw total production costs of $10.0 million, which includes $1.2 million in inventory impairments, resulting in gross margins before fair value adjustments of $3.6 million.
The company remained unprofitable at a basic level during the quarter however, with its $3.6 million in gross margins seeing operating expenses of $7.3 million. The largest expense was wage and benefits at $3.3 million, followed by amortization of property at $1.1 million and sales, marketing and business development costs of $1.1 million.
Other expenses meanwhile consisted of $2.1 million in financing expenses, which were offset by a $0.8 million gain on the disposal of property. The company as a result posted a net loss of $4.0 million for the quarter.
The company also saw its cash position climb to $65.5 million from $20.4 million over the course of the quarter, thanks in part to two financings it conducted. The company also revealed it has yet to sell any equity under the outstanding ATM program.
Additionally, the company indicated that it was not in compliance with certain debt covenants as of the end of the quarter related to EBITDA targets, which it subsequently received waivers for.
This is expected to be the final quarter reported by Supreme on a standalone basis, following the previously announced acquisition by Canopy Growth, with the transaction set to close at the end of June 2021 following a shareholder meeting on June 10.
Supreme Cannabis last traded at $0.295 on the TSX.
