First Quarter 2024 Financial Highlights (in $ thousands, excl. margin items):

“Our first quarter results demonstrate an improvement over the prior quarter on a margin basis, and we are encouraged by the green shoots that are evident in several critical areas of the business. As we have emphasized, this year we are committed to building a better business, with a focus on improving our margins as we target free cash flow generation,” said David Hart, CEO of The Cannabist Company.

He continued, “We have demonstrated early successes in better utilizing our footprint and existing cultivation and manufacturing facilities, evidenced by a decrease in the overhang on gross margin in the quarter. We are transforming the wholesale business, including shifting the wholesale mix toward finished goods and building strategic brand partnerships that are helping to recapture margin across the portfolio. As we look ahead, we are preparing for the upcoming adult use transition in Ohio and are continuing to capitalize on growth opportunities in markets like Virginia and New Jersey. Though we are encouraged by the results of the first quarter, we know there is more work to do. We look forward to enacting additional changes to the business so that we end 2024 having a materially improved financial position and are poised to compete more effectively.”
