• Gross quarterly revenue of $9 million is 18% higher than the previous quarter and 15% higher than the same period in 2023
  • Fiscal Q1/24 marks ninth consecutive quarter generating positive net income and earnings per share
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 in fiscal Q1/24 exceeded $1.1 million, a 16% increase over fiscal Q1/23

CALGARY, AB, Jan. 2, 2024 /CNW/ - CanadaBis Capital Inc. (the "Company" or "CanadaBis") (TSXV: CANB), a premium vertically integrated Canadian cannabis company, is pleased to announce our first quarter fiscal 2024 results featuring another consecutive period of growth in gross and net revenue. The Company's Financial Statements and Notes, as well as Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") are available on our website and filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

This quarter reflects another period generating positive earnings and robust Adjusted EBITDA1, driven by a 45% increase in unit sales of combined concentrate and dry flower over the same period the prior year. Stigma Grow also continues to re-formulate concentrate lines to meet demands from current clients to maintain larger terpene and cannabinoid profiles across our product offering. With this ongoing innovation, coupled with demand for our award-winning Infused Pre-rolls, Live Rosin vapes and high CBD cartridges, CanadaBis anticipates continued positive performance in fiscal 2024.

"Building on the momentum realized in fiscal 2023, I am proud to report that our first fiscal quarter of 2024 represents another period of growing gross and net revenue," said Travis McIntyre, CEO of CanadaBis. "Our unique capabilities and consumer-centric value proposition have earned brand loyalty and positioned CanadaBis to leverage the extracts segment while introducing additional innovative products such as our latest offering, the Super Slim Cigarette Style Pre-Rolls - Electric Dartz. By further optimizing operational efficiencies, exercising prudent financial management, and maintaining our competitive edge in the cannabis industry, we believe the Company is well positioned to drive continued shareholder value creation."


  • Consistent Positive Sales — Gross revenue of $9.0 million grew 15% over the same period in 2023 and 18% over the previous quarter, while net revenue of $5.7 million was 12% and 20% higher than Q1/23 and Q4/23, respectively. This performance was driven by steady growth and continued demand for newly launched and existing SKUs, as sales of over 550,000 units of combined concentrate and dry flower in Q1/24 reflects a 45% increase compared to 380,000 units sold in Q1/23.

  • Continued Profitability — Net income generated during Q1/24 totaled $707,117 after tax, or $0.01 per share, compared to $700,313 during the same period in 2023, reflecting the impact of additional staff levels that align with revenue and production increases, along with enhanced advertising and promotional activities designed to foster demand in light of increased competition in the infused pre-roll market.

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 Contributing to Performance - Adjusted EBITDA1 totaled over $1.1 million for Q1/24 and reflects an increase of 16% over the same period the prior year, largely attributable to enhanced brand awareness, ongoing expansion of the Dab Bod products and the launch of the High Priestess brand, along with multiple new Dab Bod Brand SKUs introduced into the marketplace.

  • New Products Drive Demand — All new products launched during previous quarters have continued to post growth and record sales in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario, including our newest and first-of-its-kind product line, Super Slim Cigarette Style Pre-Rolls, the "Electric Dartz", which have received solid adoption across the provinces.

  • Cost Management in Focus — The Company has actively managed input expenses and inflationary pressures through negotiations and economies of scale, securing cost savings while increasing operational efficiencies and expanding yields in cultivation and extraction. We continue to maintain our cost management plans, along with a focus on increasing efficiencies, cash flow and liquidity.

With the continued year-over-year growth in gross and net revenue, net income, Adjusted EBITDA1 and rigorous cost controls delivered to date in Q1/24, CanadaBis has set the stage to deliver another year of strong results. We will strive to capitalize on our thriving extracts segment, while effectively navigating a competitive and dynamic climate inherent within the cannabis industry.

The Company has established several competitive advantages to ensure long-term success, including our butane hydrocarbon (BHO) extraction process, and we continue to explore new formulations that can meet demand and support the diversification of our product offerings. Rising demand from Alberta, Ontario, and British Columbia increased sales of resin and shatter infused pre-rolls and moonrocks, while Dab Bod and High Priestess products continue to attract greater market share.

As a vertically integrated cannabis company, we bring unique insights and the ability to respond swiftly to external factors that may impact selling prices, input costs or shifting customer demands. With an unwavering commitment to stringent and strategic capital management, we intend to leverage the extensive CanadaBis brand portfolio, excellent brand recognition, distinctive products and strategic resource allocation to further develop innovative products that optimally align with consumer preferences.

We remain dedicated to advancing success and exploring new opportunities through 2024 while continuing to prioritize shareholder value creation. The CanadaBis roadmap remains clear: actively pursue growth opportunities, stay agile and well-positioned to react within a volatile cannabis market and consistently strive to improve operational standards. We look forward to providing further updates on our progress and success during the upcoming fiscal year, and appreciate the support of our shareholders, Board of Directors and employees.

Non-GAAP Measures

This news release contains the financial performance metric of Adjusted EBITDA, a measure that is not recognized or defined under IFRS (a "Non-GAAP Measure"). As a result, this data may not be comparable to data presented by other cannabis companies. For an explanation and reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to related comparable financial information presented in the Financial Statements prepared in accordance with IFRS, refer to the MD&A for the three months ended October 31, 2023. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful indicator of operational performance and is specifically used by management to assess the financial and operational performance of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of the Company's financial performance. It is intended to provide a proxy for the Company's operating cash flow and is widely used by industry analysts to compare CanadaBis to its competitors and derive expectations of future financial performance of the Company. Adjusted EBITDA increases comparability between comparative companies by eliminating variability resulting from differences in capital structures, management decisions related to resource allocation, and the impact of fair value adjustments on biological assets, inventory, and financial instruments, which may be volatile on a period-to-period basis. Adjusted EBTIDA is not a recognized, defined, or standardized measure under IFRS. The Company calculates Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss) excluding changes in fair value of biological assets, change in fair value of biological assets realized through inventory sold, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based payments, and finance costs.
