TILT Holdings Reports First Quarter 2024 Results

PHOENIX, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TILT Holdings Inc. (“TILT" or the “Company”) (Cboe: TILT) (OTCQB: TLLTF), a global provider of cannabis business solutions including inhalation technologies, cultivation, manufacturing, processing, brand development and retail, is reporting its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2024. All financial information is reported in U.S. dollars and prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) unless otherwise indicated.

“We continue to navigate the Company’s transition from operational improvement to revenue growth,” said TILT’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Conder. “Although the cannabis industry has been facing challenges related to hardware commoditization and pricing pressure in select markets, we are adapting accordingly, and the fundamentals of our business are improving despite those headwinds. Our primary focus is the same as it has always been – deepening our relationships with customers across both our plant-touching and Jupiter hardware businesses.

“There is still work to be done to improve the business; however, we believe TILT is poised for future growth, especially with exciting industry catalysts potentially on the horizon, such as federal rescheduling and the corresponding elimination of Section 280E taxes. We are also acutely focused on strengthening the balance sheet and plan to address our debt throughout the year as we execute on our growth and profitability objectives in 2024.”

Q1 2024 Financial Summary

  • Revenue was $37.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $42.3 million in the prior year period. The expected decrease in revenue was mainly attributable to lower sales volume and price compression in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, as well as lower Jupiter average price per unit for certain product lines.
  • Gross profit was $6.7 million and gross margin was 17.9% in the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $8.8 million or 20.8% of revenue in the prior year period. The decrease in gross profit was primarily driven by lower revenue at Jupiter and the cannabis division, while the contraction in gross margin was primarily driven by lower average pricing relative to the prior year period.
  • Net loss was $9.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to a net loss of $4.9 million in the prior year period. The difference was primarily due to lower gross profit and an $8.4 million gain on asset sales recognized in Q1 2023.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $38,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to $(79,000) in the prior year period. The improvement was primarily driven by efficient operating cost controls.
  • Cash used from operations was $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024, compared to cash provided by operations of $3.8 million in the prior year period. The decrease was primarily related to the timing of inventory purchases.
  • At March 31, 2024, the Company had $3.5 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash compared to $3.3 million at December 31, 2023. Notes payable net of discount at March 31, 2024 was $59.7 million compared to $52.2 million at December 31, 2023.

Q1 2024 & Recent Operational Highlights

  • Launched Level, a leading West Coast pressed tablet brand, in the Pennsylvania market.
  • Crowned NECANN Cup winner for the third year in a row, our Standard Farms brand won first place for best vape cartridge with its Mimosa Liquid Live Rosin “All-in-One” Vape using the Jupiter/CCELL Voca Pro hardware.
  • Announced that an experienced retailer and operator will lend capital to Standard Farms PA, to construct and operate dispensaries under Pennsylvania’s Senate Bill 773.

These statements should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results.

Such risk factors include, but are not limited to, the inability or failure of the federal government to reschedule cannabis as Schedule III and the state regulators to implement adult-use conversions by certain states in which TILT operates or plans to operate, TILT’s ability to continue as a going concern, TILT’s ability to operate its business without encountering any unforeseen delays and interruptions, unexpected geological or other effects, including failures to ship or shipping delays, weather conditions, shipping transportation, equipment failures, permitting delays or labor or contract disputes, TILT’s reliance on third-party suppliers to provide a sufficient supply of key materials necessary to satisfy customer demand for its products, TILT’s ability to enter into a forbearance agreement with its existing noteholders on acceptable terms or at all and achieve compliance with its debt covenants, TILT’s ability to generate sufficient liquidity, TILT’s ability to execute on its cost saving measures and initiatives, and those risks described under the heading “Item 1A.

Non-GAAP Financial and Performance Measures

In addition to providing financial measures based on GAAP, the Company provides additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate the Company’s financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect the Company’s ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in the business, as they facilitate comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enable investors to evaluate the Company’s operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management. These non-GAAP financial measures may exclude expenses and gains that may be unusual in nature, infrequent or not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operating results.

As there are no standardized methods of calculating these non-GAAP measures, the Company’s methods may differ from those used by others, and accordingly, the use of these measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures used by others.

Accordingly, these non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures that are not defined under GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, and believes they enhance an investor’s understanding of the Company’s financial and operating performance from period to period, because they exclude certain material non-cash items and certain other adjustments management believes are not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations and performance. EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA net income (loss), plus (minus) income taxes (recovery), plus (minus) finance expense (income), plus depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA excluding certain one-time, non-cash or non-operating expenses, as determined by management, including stock compensation expense, debt issuance costs and severance.
