1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure used by management that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management defines adjusted EBITDA as loss and comprehensive loss from operations, as reported, before finance and transaction costs, tax, depreciation, and amortization, and adjusted for removing share-based payments, fair value adjustment on sale of inventory, fair value adjustment on biological assets and other non-cash items including impairment losses. Management believes this measure provides useful information as it is a commonly used measure in the capital markets to approximate operating performance on an adjusted basis as described above. See reconciliation of “Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)” below.
• Net cash used in financing activities was $1,321 compared to $4,874 during the same period in 2021, a decrease of $3,553 or 73%.
• Shareholder’s equity was a deficit of $390 compared to $6,873 as of April 30, 2021.

“Our strategic plans of cost cutting and aggressive pursuit of revenue growth with a prime focus on the veteran oriented medical market are working. This marks the second consecutive quarter where our consolidated revenue has more than doubled over the same period last year. This positive trend is driven by the continued growth of our high margin medical cannabis platform as well as strong reviews and demand for our adult-use SKUs across nine Canadian provinces,” commented Chris Churchill-Smith, CEO of Canada House. “We expect the strong revenue growth demonstrated this quarter to continue as we prepare to launch already accepted SKUs in 3 of Canada’s largest recreational markets and continue our integration efforts with MTL Cannabis. We look forward to completing our transaction with MTL Cannabis and continuing to demonstrate operational excellence and industry leading financial performance.”
