Management Commentary

“IMC Germany delivered accelerated growth in 2023, growing 181% from $252K in 2022 to $709K in 2023. During this time, IMC Germany was #1 in sales per stock keeping unit and posted the highest growth against its competitors in the German market.2 With the regulatory rescheduling of cannabis in Germany set to occur effective April 1st, the Company hopes to continue its growth in the market as the market evolves,” said Oren Shuster, Chief Executive Officer of IMC. “In addition, as we are constantly looking for opportunities to maximize shareholder value, we are hopeful that our potential reverse merger with Israel-based Kadimastem Ltd., a clinical cell therapy public company traded on the Tel Aviv stock exchange under the symbol (TASE: KDST) will proceed as expected, which we believe will create significant value for the shareholders.”

“As previously warned and as expected, unfortunately, the Israel-Hamas war had a negative impact on our fourth quarter 2023 results, which weighed on our full year results. Due to the ongoing conflict, there was a 6% decrease in our yearly revenue. Coupled with our fourth quarter of 2023 inventory reduction, the war caused our fourth quarter gross profit to decrease by 68% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2022. However, our gross profit for 2023 increased by 7.5% to $9.8 million as compared to last year,” said Uri Birenberg, Chief Financial Officer of IMC. “Partially offsetting these declines, we were able to reduce our operating costs in the fourth quarter of 2023 by 55% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2022, ending the year with a 43% reduction in our operating costs as compared to last year, as we leaned further into our goal of active cost management.”

Non-IFRS Measures

This press release makes reference to “Gross Margin” and “Adjusted EBITDA”, which are financial measures that are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These measures are provided as complementary information to the Company’s IFRS measures by providing further understanding of our results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, these measures should neither be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS.

For an explanation of how management defines Gross Margin and Adjusted EBITDA, see the 2023 MD&A.

We reconcile these non-IFRS financial measures to the most comparable IFRS measures as set out below:

In Germany, the IMC ecosystem operates through Adjupharm GmbH, where it distributes cannabis to pharmacies for medical cannabis patients. Until recently, the Company also actively operated in Canada through Trichome Financial Corp and its wholly owned subsidiaries, where it cultivated, processed, packaged, and sold premium and ultra-premium cannabis at its own facilities under the WAGNERS and Highland Grow brands for the adult-use market in Canada. The Company has exited operations in Canada and considers these operations as discontinued.

Disclaimer for Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking information or forward-looking statements under applicable Canadian and United States securities laws (collectively, “forward-looking statements“). All information that addresses activities or developments that we expect to occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as “seek”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “plan”, “estimate”, “expect”, “likely” and “intend” and statements that an event or result “may”, “will”, “should”, “could” or “might” occur or be achieved and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on the estimates and opinions of management on the date the statements are made. In the press release, such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to: the Company leaving the Canadian cannabis market to pivot its focus and resources to achieve sustainable and profitable growth in its highest value markets, Israel and Germany; the impact of the Israel-Hamas war on the Company, including its operations and the medical cannabis industry in Israel; the timing and impact of the partial legalization of medicinal cannabis in Germany, including, the Company having it “all in house”, the Company being positioned to take advantage of the partial legalization, the Company’s growth in 2024, the market growth for medicinal cannabis in Germany, and the stated benefits of the Company’s EU-GMP processing facility and an EU-GDP logistics center; the Company to host a teleconference meeting as stated; and the Company’s stated goals, scope, and nature of operations in Germany, Israel, and other jurisdictions the Company may operate.

Forward-looking statements are based on assumptions that may prove to be incorrect, including but not limited to: the Company’s ability to focus and resources to achieve sustainable and profitable growth in its highest value markets; the Company’s ability to mitigate the impact of the Israel-Hamas war on the Company; the Company’s ability to take advantage of the partial legalization of medicinal cannabis in Germany; the Company’s ability to host a teleconference meeting as stated; and the Company’s ability to carry out its stated goals, scope, and nature of operations in Germany, Israel, and other jurisdictions the Company may operate.

The above lists of forward-looking statements and assumptions are not exhaustive. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated or implied by such forward-looking statements due to a number of factors and risks. These include:  the failure of the Company to comply with applicable regulatory requirements in a highly regulated industry; unexpected changes in governmental policies and regulations in the jurisdictions in which the Company operates; the Company’s ability to continue to meet the listing requirements of the Canadian Securities Exchange and the NASDAQ Capital Market; any unexpected failure to maintain in good standing or renew its licenses; the ability of the Company and Focus Medical (collectively, the “Group“) to deliver on their sales commitments or growth objectives; the reliance of the Group on third-party supply agreements to provide sufficient quantities of medical cannabis to fulfil the Group’s obligations; the Group’s possible exposure to liability, the perceived level of risk related thereto, and the anticipated results of any litigation or other similar disputes or legal proceedings involving the Group; the impact of increasing competition; any lack of merger and acquisition opportunities; adverse market conditions; the inherent uncertainty of production quantities, qualities and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses; risks of product liability and other safety-related liability from the usage of the Group’s cannabis products; supply chain constraints; reliance on key personnel; the risk of defaulting on existing debt; risks surrounding war, conflict and civil unrest in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, including the impact of the Israel-Hamas war on the Company, its operations and the medical cannabis industry in Israel; risks associated with the Company focusing on the Israel and Germany markets; the inability of the Company to achieve sustainable profitability and/or increase shareholder value; the inability of the Company to actively manage costs and/or improve margins; the inability of the company to grow and/or maintain sales; the inability of the Company to meet its goals and/or strategic plans; the inability of the Company to reduce costs and/or maintain revenues; the Company’s inability to take advantage of the partial legalization of medicinal cannabis in Germany; and the Company’s inability to host a teleconference meeting as stated.

Please see the other risks, uncertainties and factors set out under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s annual report dated March 28, 2024, which is available on the Company’s issuer profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca and Edgar at www.sec.gov/edgar. Any forward-looking statement included in this press release is made as of the date of this press release and is based on the beliefs, estimates, expectations and opinions of management on the date such forward looking information is made. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements except as required by applicable securities laws. Investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

1 Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA“) and Adjusted EBITDA. These measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS“) and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Non-IFRS measures provide investors with a supplemental measure of the Company’s operating performance and therefore highlight trends in Company’s core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. Management uses non-IFRS measures in measuring the financial performance of the Company.
