The financial results put forth by the company in the third quarter leave much to be desired, with the company posting net revenues of $4.9 million for the period ended September 30, 2020, an increase from $4.4 million in the prior quarter.

Operating expenses largely comprised of general and administrative expenses of $5.0 million, followed by sales and marketing at $2.3 million and depreciation and amortization of $2.3 million. The loss was then further extended by a number of other expenses, including a $67.8 million impairment charge on assets and $0.9 million in financing costs, bringing the total net loss to $76.2 million.

Impairments made during the quarter were primarily related to property plant and equipment writedowns following the failure of certain energy related equipment in July and August, which then impact the quality of flower being outputted by the facilities.

Looking to the balance sheet, the firms cash position declined from $18.8 million to that of $4.1 million, justifying the financing conducted in October for $12.8 million.

    The company release indicated his leaving was a decision made by the board of directors. Saying he “Quit “is a little misleading
