Management Commentary

“The most recent quarter reflects our work to strengthen our balance sheet through divestment of our Ohio dispensary and retirement of $7.33 million in senior secured debt. We are hyper-focused on cost savings and the full repayment of our senior secured debt will save roughly one million dollars per year in interest payments. Our team is continually striving for better performance and we are pleased with the improvements in our gross margin. Additionally, with the closing of the Long Beach dispensary transaction, the Company reduced the total shares outstanding by roughly 1% as a result of finalization of seller liabilities. We look forward to opening our dispensaries in Illinois and New Jersey in calendar 2024 and expanding our brand and experienced team to these important markets.

For further details, please see the Company’s recent Form 10-Q filing on EDGAR at www.sec.gov/edgar/search, and the interim financial statements filed on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca.

*Net Income for Q1 FY2024 included income from the sale of Ohio dispensary.
