ManifestSeven Holdings Corporation (CSE: MSVN; OTCMKTS: MNFSF) (“M7” or the “Company“), California’s first integrated omnichannel platform for legal cannabis, announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended August 31, 2021 on October 29, 2021.

All financial information in this press release is provided in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Third Quarter 2021 Fiscal Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Generated consolidated revenue of $4.2 million during the third fiscal quarter, representing an increase of 11% from $3.8 million during the second fiscal quarter. During the third fiscal quarter, M7 continued to place a greater emphasis on generating revenue from its regulated operations, with regulated product sales increasing by 25% quarter-over-quarter and expected to yield more significant long-term revenue growth.
  • M7 continued to optimize its cost structure, resulting in operating expenses (excluding depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense) of $2.3 million during the fiscal third quarter, representing a decrease of 33% from $3.5 million during the second fiscal quarter.
  • Reported consolidated gross profit of $1.17 million during the third first quarter, representing a decrease of 6% from $1.24 million during the second fiscal quarter. The decrease in gross profit is primarily attributable to a decline in revenue generated from ancillary product sales and a shift in product mix from ancillary to regulated products as described above, while gross profit generated by the Company’s regulated segment increased by 5% year-over-year.

Operational Updates

  • In July 2021, the Company entered into a Master Services Agreement with a licensed third-party cannabis distribution company, focused primarily on the rapidly growing beverage product category, to carry out finished goods distribution operations on behalf of Highlanders. The contract consolidates a client portfolio that includes some of California’s highest-selling beverage products, a database of nearly 400 active licensed retailers throughout California, and a robust fleet of 16 distribution vehicles, allowing for efficient statewide long-haul transportation and last-mile fulfillment of regulated products. The agreement is expected to result in significant operational synergies and maximize the Company’s ability to monetize its regulated distribution infrastructure by generating incremental and accretive revenue and optimizing operating margins.
  • The Company continues to explore, review and evaluate a broad range of potential strategic alternatives focused on maximizing shareholder value. The Company is evaluating options around its strategic direction and drivers, operations and operating model, geographic footprint, value-driven elements of the supply chain, and resourcing.
  • The Company continues to be in default of certain debt obligations. The Company and certain of its debt holders are in discussions about possible solutions. Further, the Company is working closely with its major creditors, vendors, and landlords as it continues to pursue a range of strategic and financing alternatives.
