“Continued investment and the execution of unique, market driven business strategies have firmly positioned Canopy to address the legal adult recreational market that is set to open in Canada in 2018 and expand into federally-legal markets around the world,” said Bruce Linton, Chairman & CEO.

Added Linton, “With a patient base that has more than doubled over the past year, to over 58,000, we have scaled up operations in all areas, including cultivation capacity, information technology, quality assurance, fulfillment and customer care.  The development of Tweed Main Street, our new online store, which brings the products of our many leading brands under one roof, delivers a shopping experience that consumers frankly expect.  Investment in partnerships and product development have delivered a variety of products to our customers, including most recently softgels, produced under GMP conditions.  Developing the playbook that has secured our lead in the Canadian market has been a warm up exercise for the opportunity that lies ahead.  Our expansion into developing medical cannabis markets, with established products and procedures under the Spectrum brand, has begun in Germany and Chile.”

“We will continue to invest in our business, to bring more capacity and more permitted products to more customers in more markets, all with a view to increasing market share and maximizing shareholder return in the long term.  We strongly believe that continuing to invest in our industry leadership position, strategically trading off short-term profitability for long term value, is the right decision for shareholders, patients and our communities,” concluded Linton.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Revenue Review

Revenue for the fourth quarter fiscal 2017 was $14.7 million, a 50% increase over the third quarter fiscal 2017 in which revenue was $9.8 million and an increase of 191% over the prior year period in which revenue was $5.0 million.

Revenue in the fiscal year 2017 totaled $39.9 million, an increase of 214% over fiscal year 2016 when revenue was $12.7 million. 

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Product Sales Review

During the fourth quarter fiscal 2017, Canopy Growth sold 1,740 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $8.03 per gram, up from 700 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $7.16 per gram during the prior year period.

During the fiscal year 2017, the Company has sold 5,139 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $7.40 per gram compared to 1,696 kilograms and kilogram equivalents at an average price of $7.34 per gram in the same period last year.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Gross Margin Review

The IFRS reported gross margin was $1.4 million, or 10% of revenue, for the three month period ended March 31, 2017.  In the comparative period ended March 31, 2016, the IFRS gross margin was $2.7 million or 53% of revenue.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, management developed a plan to sell Sun‑Grown inventory at a reduced price commencing in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 which resulted in an expense to revalue the Tweed Farms “Sun-Grown” inventory which was recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.  The fourth quarter gross margin was primarily impacted by taking into account the new pricing introduced subsequent to year-end for Tweed Farms Sun‑Grown strains, which are sold, in many cases, at a discount to similar strains sold under the Tweed brand.

The IFRS gross margin was $37.6 million, or 94% of revenue, for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2017. In the comparative period ended March 31, 2016, the gross margin on the same basis was $19.0 million or 150% of revenue. Gross margin includes the unrealized gains on changes in fair value of biological assets.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Adjusted Product Contribution Review

The Company’s “Adjusted Product Contribution”1 is a Non-GAAP metric used by management which adjusts the reported gross margin by excluding the fair value measurements as required by IFRS and measures the cost of sales for the grams actually sold in the period. Management believes this measure provides useful information as it reflects the gross margin based on the Company’s weighted average cost per gram from seed to sale against the grams sold.

The Adjusted Product Contribution in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $9.6 million, or 66% of revenue compared to $3.2 million, or 63% of revenue in the comparison period last year. For fiscal 2017, the Adjusted Product Contribution was $25.2 million, or 63% of revenue compared to $8.1 million or 64% of revenue in the prior year period.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Operating Expense Review

Sales and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter fiscal 2017 were $4.1 million, or 28% of revenue, including two months of Mettrum operations amounting to an increase of $1.0 million, non-cash share-based compensation of $0.1 million related to previously issued escrowed shares, and higher patient assistance payments of $0.5 million. In comparison, sales and marketing expenses were $2.4 million or 48% of revenue in the same period last year.

Sales and marketing expenses in the fiscal year 2017 were $13.0 million or 32% of revenue compared to sales and marketing expenses of $5.7 million or 45% of revenue in the prior year period. Sales and marketing expenses in the fiscal year 2017 include two months of Mettrum operations amounting to an increase of $1.0 million, a full year of Bedrocan Canada operations, whereas the comparative period included only six months of operation, amounting to an increase of $0.8 million, non-cash, share‑based compensation of $1.3 million related to previously issued escrowed shares and $1.8 million in higher patient assistance payments directly attributed to patient growth. Also included are higher staff levels, costs associated with the Company’s medical outreach program, branding programs and the expanding client care center.

General and Administrative (“G&A”) expenses in the fourth quarter fiscal 2017 and 2016 were $5.9 million and $2.6 million, respectively. G&A expenses, as a percentage of revenue, continued a downward trend, decreasing from 51% in the fourth quarter fiscal 2016 to 40% of revenue in the fourth quarter fiscal 2017. These costs include two months of Mettrum operations amounting to an increase of $1.7 million and higher employee compensation related expenses due to increased staff levels. G&A expenses during the quarter also included extensive use of consultants and advisory services while expanding and commercializing the Company’s operations, facility costs, compliance costs associated with meeting Health Canada requirements, as well as other public company related expenses including related professional fees.

G&A expenses in the fiscal year 2017 were $16.9 million or 42% or revenue. In comparison, G&A expenses were $8.2 million or 64% of revenue, in the same period last year. The increase in G&A expenses over the year ended March 31, 2017 reflects the Company’s growth and building of commercial capacity and capability. These costs include two months of Mettrum operations, amounting to an increase of $1.7 million, a full year of Bedrocan Canada operations, amounting to an increase of $1.3 million over the prior year period, and higher finance charges such as credit card payment processing fees of $0.6 million. G&A expenses during the year ended March 31, 2017 also included higher employee compensation related expenses due to increased staff levels and extensive use of consultants, legal and advisory services in acquisition-related activities and in expanding and commercializing the Company’s operations and facility costs at Tweed, Tweed Farms and Bedrocan Canada. In addition, compliance costs associated with meeting Health Canada requirements, as well as other public company related expenses including related professional fees were included.

Acquisition-related expenses for the three-month period ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 were $5.4 million and $nil, respectively. Acquisition-related expenses in the three month period ended March 31, 2017 included $4.6 million related to the acquisition of Mettrum. The Acquisition-related expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased due to the significance of the Mettrum acquisition and due diligence on potential acquisitions completed during the period and resulting increased level of legal, accounting and strategic business consulting services required to evaluate and complete the transactions.

Acquisition-related expenses for the year ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 were $7.4 million and $1.2 million respectively. Acquisition-related expenses in fiscal 2017 included $5.2 million related to the acquisition of Mettrum, $0.6 million related to M&A advisory services and $0.4 million related to the acquisition of MedCann GmbH Pharma and Nutraceuticals (since renamed Spektrum Cannabis GmbH). Acquisition-related expenses incurred in fiscal 2016 included $1.1 million related to the acquisition of Bedrocan Canada. The higher acquisition-related expenses in fiscal 2017 were due to higher number of acquisitions completed during fiscal 2017 and higher legal, accounting and strategic business consulting services required to complete the transactions. The Company may acquire additional strategic assets in the future as it pursues its business strategy. As such, the Company may incur related acquisition expenses, including legal, accounting and strategic business consulting service related fees, in the future.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA

The Company’s “Adjusted EBITDA”2 is a Non-GAAP metric used by management which is Income (loss) from operations, as reported, before interest, tax, and adjusted for removing other non-cash items, including the stock based compensation expense, depreciation, and the non-cash effects of accounting for biological assets and inventories, and further adjusted to remove acquisition related costs. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial metric to assess its operating performance on a cash basis before the impact of non-cash items and acquisition activities.

Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter fiscal 2017 amounted to a loss of $5.3 million compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $4.4 million in the same period last year. In the year ended March 31, 2017, the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA amounted to a loss of $17.0 million compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $14.1 million in the twelve-months ended March 31, 2016.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Earnings Review

Net loss in the fourth quarter fiscal 2017 was $21.1 million or $0.14 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $5.1 million or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the comparative period last year, inclusive of the IFRS accounting for biological assets. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded net loss of $16.7 million or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $3.5 million or $0.05 per basic and diluted share in the comparative period last year.  Reported net loss was inclusive of the IFRS accounting for biological assets.

Fiscal Year 2017 Balance Sheet Review

At March 31, 2017, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents totaled $101.8 million, representing an increase of $86.4 million from March 31, 2016, principally due to cash received from the bought deal financings that closed on, April 15, 2016, August 24, 2016 and December 22, 2016, a private placement that closed on March 22, 2017, and options exercised, combined totaling $129.3 million, net of share issue costs, which also includes $1.0 million of share issue costs associated with the Mettrum acquisition. The increase also included $3.5 million in mortgage proceeds received in the second quarter and $12.3 million in net cash acquired at closing of the Mettrum acquisition, offset by capital expansion totaling $29.4 million and to fund the cash applied to operating activities of $27.1 million.

Inventory at March 31, 2017 amounted to $46.0 million (March 31, 2016$22.2 million) and biological assets amounted to $13.6 million (March 31, 2016$5.3 million), together totaling $59.6 million (March 31, 2016$27.5 million). At March 31, 2017, the Company held 8,360 kilograms of dry cannabis and 3,049 L of cannabis oils. Included in the dry cannabis quantities was 377 kilograms available for sale in the Company’s online stores, 3,173 kilograms in process of finishing or awaiting approval for sale and 4,810 kilograms held for extraction. Dry cannabis inventory held for extraction is expected to be rapidly converted to oils and capsules when the new AES industrial capacity extraction equipment is fully commissioned and now that capsules have been approved for sale by Health Canada.
