About Delta 9 Cannabis Inc.
Delta 9 is a vertically integrated cannabis company, focused on bringing the highest-quality cannabis products to market. The company sells cannabis products through its wholesale and retail sales channels and sells its cannabis grow pods to other businesses. Delta 9's wholly owned subsidiary, Delta 9 Bio-Tech Inc., is a licensed producer of medical and recreational cannabis, and operates an 80,000-square-foot production facility in Winnipeg, Man., Canada. Delta 9 owns and operates a chain of retail stores under the Delta 9 Cannabis Store brand. Delta 9's shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol DN and on the OTCQX under the symbol DLTNF.
The company's gross
profit is calculated before adjustments for changes in biological assets.
The company's adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by management that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by international financial reporting standards and may not be comparable with similar measures presented by other companies. Management defines adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) from operations, as reported, before interest and tax, adjusted for removing share-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, and the fair value effects of accounting for biological assets and inventories. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA and the attribution of adjusted EBITDA provide meaningful and useful financial information as these measures demonstrate the performance of the company's operating businesses.
We seek Safe Harbor.
