As noted in an earlier press release to give preliminary fourth quarter 2019 income final results, slower than anticipated shop rollouts, a delay in government approval for cannabis derivative items and early indicators of pricing stress are becoming felt nationally. The delay in retail shop openings in our important markets has meant that the access to a majority of the target consumers has been restricted. Moreover, regulatory uncertainty across the pan-Canadian program and jurisdictional choices to limit the availability and sorts of cannabis derivative items have contributed to an elevated level of unpredictability.

As portion of the modifications to its operations, the Firm has eliminated roughly 200 positions across its departments and places. The cuts contain the elimination of some executive positions and the departures of Arno Groll, Chief Manufacturing Officer and Nick Davies, Chief Advertising and marketing Officer.

The Firm plans to release its comprehensive monetary final results for the year ended July 31, 2019 on October 28, 2019, and hold its earnings get in touch with at eight:30 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.
