“During the second quarter, we continued to strengthen our operational foundation in both Connecticut and Arizona,” said Mickey Harley, CEO of Greenrose. “Our revenues increased 40% year-over-year due to incremental contributions from True Harvest, where we substantially reduced our inventory backlog and generated sequential month-over-month sales improvements. At Theraplant, we continued to navigate demand headwinds within the state’s current medical market, but worked to further activate our increased cultivation capacity and build inventory ahead of Connecticut’s expected commencement of recreational cannabis sales. While we continued to incur higher costs associated with ramping our expanded cultivation capacity at both True Harvest and Theraplant, we believe this work improves our positioning for improving our operations in Arizona and preparing for Connecticut’s forthcoming recreational market, respectively. As we progress into the second half of 2022, we remain focused on leveraging our existing production efficiencies to deepen and expand our presence in our existing state markets.
“In Connecticut, we are focused on ramping our harvests to build additional inventory as we prepare to supply the expected recreational market, and we are closely monitoring regulatory progress on this front. After populating all grow rooms at our expanded Theraplant cultivation operations in the first quarter of this year, we successfully completed our first harvest out of our two newest Theraplant grow rooms in June. Subsequent to the second quarter, Greenrose, together with partners, applied for four retail licenses and two hybrid retail licenses as part of the state’s equity joint venture (EJV) program, but the four Greenrose-related retail licenses were among the 14 retail applications that were recently denied by Connecticut’s Social Equity Council. We are working to address deficiencies in the applications.
“In Arizona, we continue activating our expanded cultivation capacity. While True Harvest’s second quarter revenue continues to reflect the impacts of production interruptions stemming from construction on our additional grow rooms, these impacts have gradually eased relative to the first quarter of this year. We have opened our seventh and eighth grow rooms at True Harvest and have overcome some of the post-harvest bottlenecks we experienced in the first quarter. As we bring more of our capacity online, we look forward to further improving our operational efficiencies and implementing them on an even greater scale.”
Paul “Otto” Wimer, Chief Business Officer of Greenrose, added: “Subsequent to the second quarter, we announced two new key leadership additions. We appointed Benjamin Rose to our board of directors, effective August 1, 2022, and named Bernard Wang as our new chief financial officer, effective August 8, 2022. Mr. Rose and Mr. Wang bring over 25 years of experience in finance and investments, and public accounting and management, respectively, including strong public company and cannabis industry experience. We believe their deep expertise will help us advance our strategic progress as an early-stage multi-state operator. With our strengthened leadership team and our growing production operations, we aim to continue enhancing our positions in Connecticut and Arizona to capitalize on market expansion opportunities as they arise.”
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
For the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company’s revenue, net of discounts increased 40% to $9.2 million compared to $6.6 million in the prior year quarter. The increase primarily reflects incremental revenue contributions from True Harvest compared to the prior year period, which only included contributions from Theraplant. Theraplant’s second quarter revenues decreased year-over year as a result of sustained demand headwinds in Connecticut’s medical market, as well as increased competition and impacts from the state’s illicit market. True Harvest’s second quarter revenue performance continues to reflect the impacts of production disruptions resulting from the facility’s recent expansion.
Cost of goods sold, net for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $6.3 million compared to $2.1 million in the prior year quarter. The increase was due to purchase accounting considerations in the fair value step up of inventory, which amounted to a $1.2 million cost increase for Theraplant. Cost of goods sold during the second quarter also reflects a $2.9 million cost contribution from True Harvest, including True Harvest’s fair value step up of inventory. The Company also continued to incur start-up costs related to initial planting and production processes at Theraplant’s new production facility, as well as ramping its expanded capacity at both Theraplant and True Harvest.
Gross profit for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $2.9 million compared to $4.4 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily due to the aforementioned purchase accounting considerations in the fair value step up of inventory, partially offset by $1.3 million in incremental gross profit contribution from True Harvest.
General and administrative expenses for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 were $3.3 million compared to $0.6 million in the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily driven by incremental cost contributions from True Harvest relative to the prior year period–which only included expenses from Theraplant–as well as additional public company expenses.
Net income (loss) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $(10.3) million compared to $3.3 million in the prior year quarter. This was primarily attributable to the aforementioned revenue impacts of the production interruptions at True Harvest and ongoing demand headwinds in the Connecticut market, as well as increased interest expense of $6.9 million, purchase accounting fair value inventory step-up of $2.2 million, and intangible amortization expense of $4.0 million.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $3.1 million compared to $4.6 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily driven by the aforementioned lower level of gross profit generated during the quarter, higher corporate general and administrative expenses, and costs related to ramping the Company’s production capacity at Theraplant and True Harvest.
Cash and cash equivalents combined with restricted cash was $2.7 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $9.1 million at December 31, 2021. The decrease was driven by acquisition-related expenses and debt obligations.
2022 Financial Outlook UpdateDue to regulatory delays surrounding the expected timing of Connecticut’s recreational cannabis market, Greenrose is suspending its previously stated full year 2022 guidance. The Company expects to re-evaluate and provide further updates on its 2022 outlook as regulatory visibility improves.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measures that represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciations, and amortization, or EBITDA, and further adjustments to EBITDA to exclude certain non-cash items and other non-recurring items that management believes are not indicative of ongoing operations. We disclose EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because these non-GAAP measures are key measures used by our management to evaluate our business, measure its operating performance, and make strategic decisions. We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may be useful for investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operations results in the same manner as its management. However, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, income before income taxes, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Using these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze our business would have material limitations because the calculations are based on the subjective determination of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find significant. In addition, although other companies in our industry may report measures titled EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA or similar measures, such non-GAAP financial measures may be calculated differently from how we calculate non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their overall usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, you should consider EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and our other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.
