Management Commentary

Nick Kovacevich, CEO of Greenlane Holdings, said: “Q3 was a transformational quarter for Greenlane, with the completion of our merger with KushCo creating the industry’s leading ancillary cannabis company and house of brands. Our first few months as a combined company have been off to a strong start, as demonstrated through several realized revenue and cost saving synergies, including the consolidation of certain vendors and infrastructure and the development of go-to-market cross-selling strategies across each of our respective platforms. We are extremely pleased with the progress we have made on our integration efforts to date, while simultaneously driving meaningful progression in the business. We also generated another strong quarter of sales for our Greenlane Brands, which, despite the normal and expected challenges of closing a merger, still represented the second highest quarterly revenue contribution in Company history.”

Looking ahead, we will continue to build our portfolio of higher-margin proprietary brands, as seen by our recent announcement to acquire leading high-margin vaporizer brand DaVinci, which expands our Greenlane Brands portfolio, and is expected to strengthen our overall margins and profitability in the near-term.

Nick Kovacevich, CEO of Greenlane Holdings

With our enhanced operations, customer base, and product portfolio, we are in a stronger position than ever to execute on our growth strategy and drive significant value for our customers, partners, and shareholders.

Greenlane Brands Outlook

The Company is targeting to achieve $70 million and $100 million in Greenlane Brands revenue for 2022 and 2023, respectively. In addition, the Company expects Greenlane Brands, as a whole, to generate 45% product margins, and to comprise between 22% and 28% of total revenue in 2022.

Financial Summary

Net sales were $41.3 million in Q3 2021, compared to $35.8 million in Q3 2020, an increase of $5.6 million, or 16%.

Adjusted gross profit was $8.8 million, or 21.3% of net sales in Q3 2021, compared to $7.8 million, or 22.4% of net sales in Q2 2021 and $6.8 million, or 19.1% of net sales in Q3 2020 (see notes below regarding “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Adjusted Gross Margin” for further discussion of this and other non-GAAP measures included in this earnings release). A one-time inventory rationalization of $8.7 million was implemented in connection with the closing of the merger with KushCo, resulting in an impact to adjusted gross profit. The inventory rightsizing initiative will allow the Company to reallocate resources to higher-margin, top-performing SKUs and eliminate redundancies between the combined product portfolio of Greenlane and KushCo.

As of September 30, 2021, cash totaled $13.2 million and working capital was $70.8 million in comparison to working capital of $54.2 million as of December 31, 2020.

Net sales for our United States reporting segment increased $8.5 million, or 29.4%, to $37.5 million in Q3 2021, compared to approximately $29.0 million in the same period in 2020.

Net sales for our Canadian reporting segment were approximately $1.0 million for Q3 2021 compared to approximately $4.4 million in the same period in 2020, primarily due to an expected decrease in nicotine sales as a result of the Company’s strategic shift away from low-margin nicotine sales.

Net sales for our European reporting segment increased 21.3% to $2.8 million for Q3 2021, primarily due to an increase in B2B and third-party marketplace website sales.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Greenlane discloses Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP performance measures, because management believes these metrics assist investors and analysts in assessing our overall operating performance and evaluating how well we are executing our business strategies. You should not consider Adjusted Net Loss or Adjusted EBITDA as alternatives to net loss, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as indicators of our operating performance. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations are:

  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditures;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not include interest expense, which has been a necessary element of our costs, and income tax payments we may be required to make;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss do not reflect equity-based compensation;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss do not reflect transaction and other costs which are generally incremental costs that result from contemplated or completed transaction;
  • Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss do not reflect other one-time expenses and income, including consulting costs related to the implementation of our ERP system and the reversal of an allowance against indemnification receivables associated with the EU VAT liability;
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA do not account for these items, these measures have material limitations as indicators of operating performance. Accordingly, management does not view Adjusted Net Loss or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as substitutes for measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

For more information on Greenlane’s non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures, please see the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table in this press release.

Adjusted Gross Margin

Adjusted gross margin is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company calculates as total revenues less cost of revenues, prepared in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for certain non-recurring, non-cash items to the extent such items relate to cost of revenues, including charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives. The Company uses Adjusted gross margin as a supplemental performance measure because it believes that Adjusted gross margin is beneficial to investors for purpose of measuring the Company’s operational performance, exclusive of certain non-recurring non-cash items that are not expected to be incurred in future periods. Specifically, in excluding charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives, which the Company does not believe are indicative of the Company’s operating performance, Adjusted gross margin provides a performance measure that, when compared period-over-period, more accurately reflects the Company’s operational performance. Adjusted gross margin should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of Adjusted gross margin may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies.
