EDMONTON, AB, June 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Aurora Cannabis Inc. (the “Company” or “Aurora”) (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), the Canadian company opening the world to cannabis, today announced its financial and operational results for the third quarter and fiscal year 2023 results. As a reminder, Fiscal 2023 is comprised of three quarters ending March 31, 2023.

“We are proud to have delivered our second sequential quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA¹ in Q3 2023, demonstrating our commitment to financial discipline. Over the last three years, our ongoing business transformation initiatives have delivered ~$400 million in annualized cost savings that have significantly reduced cash used in operating activities. In fact, cash use continues to improve as evidenced by the reduction from $35.5 million in Q2 2023 to $15.1 million in Q3 2023, excluding working capital. This impressive improvement is the launching point for the initiatives that will support our drive to our new financial target of positive free cash flow by end of calendar year 2024,” said Miguel Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Aurora.

“This quarter, revenues in both our global medical cannabis and Canadian consumer cannabis segments held mostly steady at $38 million and $14.5 million, respectively, and we benefitted from a strong $10.7 million contribution from our Bevo acquisition due to the onset of its traditionally strong seasonal period. Our adjusted gross profit rose to $30.6 million while our adjusted gross margins remained healthy with our medical business generating a stable, adjusted gross margin of 60%. Our consumer business produced an adjusted gross margin of 25%, up 500 bps from the prior quarter,” he stated.

Aurora is best differentiated from its peers by our high margin, core global medical business spanning 12 countries, and our ability to find new profitable markets for growth. We stand poised to be opportunistic with our strong balance sheet and net cash position in the current market environment. Our determination and ability to showcase our strategic progress positions us for significant value creation.

Miguel Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Aurora
