Highlights

  • In FY2023, the Company announced a series of comprehensive steps to align its Canadian cannabis operations and resources including: (i) the divestiture of the Company's national cannabis retail operations (completed in Q3 FY2023); (ii) ceasing the sourcing of cannabis flower from the Mirabel, Quebec facility (completed in Q4 FY2023); (iii) exiting cannabis flower cultivation in the Smiths Falls, Ontario facility (expected to be completed in Q1 FY2024); (iv) consolidating cultivation at its existing facilities in Kincardine, Ontario and Kelowna, British Columbia; and (v) moving to an adaptive third-party sourcing model for all cannabis beverages, edibles, vapes, and extracts which will enable the Company to select and bring to market exciting and exclusive formats without the required investment in research and development and production footprint.
  • Restructuring steps undertaken in FY2023 reduced Selling, General & Administrative ("SG&A") expenses and Cost of Goods Sold ("COGS") by a combined $125 million through the end of FY2023.
  • The Company's FY2023 net revenue decreased 21% year-over year to $403 million. When adjusting for the impact of the divestiture of C3 in Q4 FY2022 and our Canadian retail business in Q3 FY2023, revenues decreased 11% in FY2023 as compared to FY2022.
  • Canadian medical cannabis revenue in FY2023 increased 6% year-over-year and Q4 FY2023 increased 8% year-over-year in a declining market.
  • Enhanced flower quality drove resurgence of the Company's mainstream Tweed brand to #9 spot in the Canadian adult-use market in Q4 FY2023 up from #16 in prior year1.
  • Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company entered into an agreement with Indiva Limited that gives Canopy Growth control of all distribution, marketing, and sales of industry leading Wana branded products in Canada. The addition of Wana branded gummies is expected to drive Adjusted EBITDA improvement for the Company's Canadian cannabis business and advance its path to leadership in the edibles category in Canada.

"Fiscal 2023 was a transformational year for Canopy Growth as we began to implement a comprehensive strategy to accelerate our path to profitability, and position our business to realize the tremendous opportunities ahead. Our actions are already yielding results and we expect to realize significant benefits from our cost reduction program in Fiscal 2024. Paired with continued progress in our Canopy USA strategy which enables a fast start, the Company is well positioned as it strives towards its goal of long-term North American cannabis leadership.''
David Klein, Chief Executive Officer

"Our actions throughout Fiscal 2023 have streamlined the organization, reduced costs, and eliminated a significant portion of Canopy Growth's debt. We recognize there is more work to be done, and we have several initiatives already underway to further reduce the operating cash burn in the businesses and improve our balance sheet, including facility divestitures that are anticipated to generate proceeds of up to $150 million in Fiscal 2024."
Judy Hong, Chief Financial Officer

BioSteel Review and Remedial Actions

In connection with the preparation of our financial statements for our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2023 (the "Form 10-K"), we identified certain trends in the BioSteel Sports Nutrition Inc. ("BioSteel") business unit. With the oversight of the Audit Committee, we launched an internal review, together with independent external counsel and forensic accountants.

This review identified material misstatements in certain of our prior financial statements related to certain sales in the BioSteel business unit, particularly with respect to the timing and amount of revenue recognition. The review also identified material weaknesses in the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2023. Overall, the correction resulted in a decrease of approximately $10 million in net revenue for FY2022, or approximately 2% of total net revenue for the Company.  For the nine months ended December 31, 2022, the correction resulted in a decrease of approximately $14 million in net revenue, or approximately 4% of total consolidated revenue for the Company.

As a result of the review, we are continuing to implement several remedial actions, including management changes and appropriate personnel actions. The Company is also considering all legal options that may be available in connection with the associated overpayment made in FY2023 to the minority shareholders of BioSteel as a result of the overstatement of revenues.

Additionally, Canopy Growth has taken decisive actions to sustain growth and improve profitability of BioSteel including: (i) exiting all BioSteel international business; (ii) prioritizing resources towards the growing Canadian market; (iii) refining our market strategy in the U.S.; (iv) changes to the BioSteel business including cost reductions in warehousing, production, product sampling and overall staffing reductions; and (v) exploring additional options to further minimize operating cash burn.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

The Company ended FY2023 with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $783 million. Targeted actions that have been completed or are currently underway to further strengthen our balance sheet include:

  • Reduction of approximately $500 million in debt from Q2 FY2023 to quarter-to-date in Q1 FY2024, including the equitization of $267 million of the 4.25% unsecured notes due in July 2023 (the "2023 Notes") and a paydown of USD$188 million of the senior secured term loan at $0.93 per dollar of debt, which has reduced annual interest payments by approximately $45 million;
  • Refinancing $100 million of the 2023 Notes held by Greenstar Canada Investment Limited Partnership, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Brands, Inc. ("CBI") in order to extend the maturity date to December 31, 2024. The Company maintains its intention to negotiate an exchange to purchase the 2023 Notes held by CBI in exchange for shares prior to its maturity; and
  • Facility divestitures which are expected to generate proceeds of up to $150 million by the end of September 2023. In the first quarter, the Company has already received proceeds of approximately $56 million in transactions that closed subsequent to March 31, 2023. Under provisions of the senior secured term loan agreement, 50% of proceeds will be used to paydown outstanding amounts of the senior secured term loan.

FY2024 Outlook and Priorities

To advance our goal of becoming a leading premium cannabis branded company in North America, Canopy Growth will focus on the following in FY2024:

  • Achieving breakeven to positive adjusted EBITDA in all of our businesses, with the exception of BioSteel, by end of FY2024;
  • Strengthening our balance sheet and improving liquidity; and
  • Monitoring and supporting the creation of value in Canopy USA, LLC ("CUSA").

Fourth Quarter and FY2023 Financial Summary

Revenues:

Net revenue of $88 million in Q4 FY2023 declined 14% as compared to Q4 FY2022 with the decrease primarily attributable to the divestitures of C3 Cannabinoid Compound Company GmbH ("C³") in the fourth quarter of FY2022 and the Canadian business-to-consumer cannabis business in the third quarter of FY2023, as well the impacts of increased competition in the Canadian adult use cannabis market and softer performance from Storz & Bickel and This Works. When adjusting for the impact of the divestiture of our Canadian retail business, Canadian cannabis revenues for the period decreased 8% in Q4 FY2023 as compared to Q4 FY2022, and were stable compared to Q3 FY2023.

Net revenue of $403 million in FY2023 declined 21% as compared to FY2022. The decrease is primarily attributable to increased competition in the Canadian adult-use cannabis market, the divestitures of C³ and the Canadian business-to-consumer cannabis business, and softer performance from Storz & Bickel and This Works. These decreases were partially offset by growth of our BioSteel business in the Canadian market. 

Gross Margin:

Reported gross margin in Q4 FY2023 was (103%) as compared to (166%) in Q4 FY2022. Excluding non-cash restructuring costs and inventory write-downs associated with the Company's strategic changes recorded in COGS for a total of $75 million, adjusted gross margin was (18%). Adjusted gross margin during Q4 FY2023 was negatively impacted by higher inventory write-downs and charges relating to costs associated with certain contract manufacturing agreements that are not expected to recur past FY2023 in the BioSteel business unit. 

Reported gross margin in FY2023 was (26%) as compared to (40%) in FY2022. Excluding non-cash restructuring costs recorded in COGS of $90 million, adjusted gross margin was (3%) in FY2023. Adjusted gross margin during FY2023 was negatively impacted by higher inventory write-downs and charges relating to costs associated with certain contract manufacturing agreements that are not expected to recur past FY2023 in the BioSteel business unit.  

Operating Expenses:

Total SG&A expenses in Q4 FY2023 declined by 11% as compared to Q4 FY2022, driven by year-over-year decreases in general and administrative ("G&A"), research and development ("R&D") as well as depreciation and amortization expenses. These decreases were primarily due to the restructuring actions announced in April 2022 and February 2023. Partially offsetting these decreases were an increase in BioSteel sales and marketing expenses, relating to the activation of the National Hockey League ("NHL") partnership announced in July 2022 and other BioSteel sales and marketing activities, as well as acquisition-related costs. Excluding acquisition–related expenses, the impact of the disposition of C3 in the fourth quarter of FY2022 and the disposition of the Canadian retail business in the Q3 FY2023, as well as the COVID-19 relief program, total SG&A expenses decreased 13% in Q4 FY2023 compared to the prior year period.

Total SG&A expenses in FY2023 declined by 3% as compared to FY2022, driven by year-over-year decreases in G&A, R&D as well as depreciation and amortization expenses. These decreases were primarily due to the restructuring actions announced in April 2022 and February 2023. Partially offsetting these decreases were an increase in BioSteel sales and marketing expenses, relating to the activation of the NHL partnership announced in July 2022 and other BioSteel sales and marketing activities, as well as acquisition-related costs. Excluding acquisition–related expenses, the impact of the disposition of C3 in the fourth quarter of FY2022 and the disposition of the Canadian retail business in the third quarter of FY2023, as well as the COVID-19 relief program, total SG&A expenses decreased 8% in FY2023 compared to the prior year.

Net Loss:

Net Loss in Q4 FY2023 was $648 million, which is a $59 million increase as compared to Q4 FY2022, driven primarily by an increase in asset impairment and restructuring costs of $164 million partially offset by improved gross margins.

Net Loss in FY2023 was $3,310 million, which is a $2,979 million increase as compared to FY2022, driven primarily by a $1,887 million increase in asset impairment and restructuring costs primarily related to goodwill impairment losses associated with the Company's cannabis operations reporting unit, as well as a $1,219 million primarily related to the impact of non-cash fair value changes partially offset by improved gross margins.

Adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted EBITDA loss in Q4 FY2023 was $96 million, a $36 million improvement in Adjusted EBITDA loss as compared to Q4 FY2022 primarily driven by the year-over-year improvement in gross margin and reduced operating expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA loss in FY2023 was $350 million, a $76 million improvement in Adjusted EBITDA loss as compared to FY2022 primarily driven by the year-over-year improvement in gross margin and reduced operating expenses inclusive of the impact of a $64 million reduction in COVID-19 relief payments in FY2023 as compared to FY2022.

Free Cash Flow:

Free Cash Flow in Q4 FY2023 was an outflow of $143 million, a 13% increase in outflow as compared to Q4 FY2022. Relative to Q4 FY2022, the increase in outflow is due to the timing of certain payments in each period and investments in growth initiatives at BioSteel and costs related to the formation of CUSA, partially offset by reduced capital expenditures and impacts of cost reduction actions.

Free Cash Flow in FY2023 was an outflow of $567 million, a 3% decrease in outflow as compared to FY2022. Relative to FY2022, the decrease in outflow is due to the timing of certain payments in each period, reduced capital expenditures and impacts of cost reduction actions, partially offset investments in growth initiatives at BioSteel and costs related to the formation of CUSA.

Cash Position:

Cash and short-term investments were $783 million at March 31, 2023, representing a decrease of $589 million from $1,372 million at March 31, 2022 reflecting the impact of cash used in operating activities, the first tranche of the term loan credit agreement repayment of $118 million, as well as cash used for acquisitions and investments, including the acquisition of the Verona, Virginia manufacturing facility for the BioSteel business and a premium payment made to obtain an option to acquire Acreage Holdings, Inc. ("Acreage") outstanding debt in connection with the formation of CUSA in October 2022. Partially offsetting these net outflows were net proceeds of $135 million from the issuance of USD$100 million in convertible debentures in February 2023. Debt amounted to $1,307 million at March 31, 2023, representing a decline of $194 million from $1,501 million at March 31, 2022.  Subsequent to March 31, 2023, $127 million of debt owing under the credit facility was repaid at $0.93 cents on the dollar for $117 million, and $100 million of the 2023 Notes were settled through the issuance of a promissory note due at the end of the third quarter of FY2025.

Canada Cannabis

  • Adult-use business-to-business net revenue in Q4 FY2023 decreased 16% as compared to Q4 FY2022 driven primarily by lower sales volumes, particularly in value-priced dried flower, resulting from both the strategic shift in our product portfolio and increased competition. These factors were partially offset by a more favorable product mix.

  • Adult-use business-to-consumer net revenue in Q4 FY2023 decreased 100% as compared to Q4 FY2022 due to the disposition of all retail locations during Q3 FY2023.

  • Medical net revenue in Q4 FY2023 increased 8% as compared to Q4 FY2022 driven by growth in insured patient registrations and continued expansion of product offerings.

Rest-of-world Cannabis

  • Rest-of-world cannabis revenue in Q4 FY2023 decreased 37% over Q4 FY2022 due primarily to the divestiture of C3, the impact of shipments to Israel in Q4 FY2022, and a decline in our U.S. CBD business, partially offset by growth in the Australian market.
  • Excluding the impact of the divestiture of C3, rest-of-world cannabis net revenue decreased 19% as compared to Q4 FY2022.

Storz & Bickel

  • Storz & Bickel vaporizer revenue in Q4 FY2023 decreased 28% over Q4 FY2022 due primarily to the continued trend of reductions in consumer spending as seen in the prior quarters of FY2023 and again in Q4 FY2023.

This Works

  • This Works sales in Q4 FY2023 decreased 10% over Q4 FY2022 due in part to softer performance of certain product lines and the impact of foreign exchange rates.

The Q4 FY2023, Q4 FY2022, FY2023 and FY2022 financial results presented in this press release have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Certain of the forward-looking statements contained herein concerning the industries in which we conduct our business are based on estimates prepared by us using data from publicly available governmental sources, market research, industry analysis and on assumptions based on data and knowledge of these industries, which we believe to be reasonable. However, although generally indicative of relative market positions, market shares and performance characteristics, such data is inherently imprecise. The industries in which we conduct our business involve risks and uncertainties that are subject to change based on various factors, which are described further below.

The forward-looking statements contained herein are based upon certain material assumptions that were applied in drawing a conclusion or making a forecast or projection, including: (i) management's perceptions of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments; (ii) our ability to generate cash flow from operations; (iii) general economic, financial market, regulatory and political conditions in which we operate; (iv) the production and manufacturing capabilities and output from our facilities and our joint ventures, strategic alliances and equity investments; (v) consumer interest in our products; (vi) competition; (vii) anticipated and unanticipated costs; (viii) government regulation of our activities and products including but not limited to the areas of taxation and environmental protection; (ix) the timely receipt of any required regulatory authorizations, approvals, consents, permits and/or licenses; * our ability to obtain qualified staff, equipment and services in a timely and cost-efficient manner; (xi) our ability to conduct operations in a safe, efficient and effective manner; (xii) our ability to realize anticipated benefits, synergies or generate revenue, profits or value from our recent acquisitions into our existing operations; and (xiii) other considerations that management believes to be appropriate in the circumstances. While our management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to management, there is no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Financial outlooks, as with forward-looking statements generally, are, without limitation, based on the assumptions and subject to various risks as set out herein. Our actual financial position and results of operations may differ materially from management's current expectations and, as a result, our Adjusted EBITDA and SG&A cost savings may differ materially from the values provided in this news release.

By their nature, forward-looking statements are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties that may be general or specific and which give rise to the possibility that expectations, forecasts, predictions, projections or conclusions will not prove to be accurate, that assumptions may not be correct and that objectives, strategic goals and priorities will not be achieved. A variety of factors, including known and unknown risks, many of which are beyond our control, could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release and other reports we file with, or furnish to, the SEC and other regulatory agencies and made by our directors, officers, other employees and other persons authorized to speak on our behalf. Such factors include, without limitation, risks related to our ability to remediate the material weaknesses identified in our internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2023, or inability to otherwise maintain an effective system of internal control; the risk that the restatement of the Company's: (i) audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022, originally included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022, and (ii) unaudited consolidated financial statements for the quarterly periods ended June 30, 2022, September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2022, originally included in the our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for such quarterly periods could negatively affect investor confidence and raise reputation risks; our ability to continue as a going concern; our limited operating history; risks that we may be required to write down intangible assets, including goodwill, due to impairment; the ability of parties to certain transactions to receive, in a timely manner and on satisfactory terms, the necessary regulatory, court and shareholder approvals; the adequacy of our capital resources and liquidity, including but not limited to, availability of sufficient cash flow to execute our business plan (either within the expected timeframe or at all); volatility in and/or degradation of general economic, market, industry or business conditions; risks relating to our current and future operations in emerging markets; compliance with applicable environmental, economic, health and safety, energy and other policies and regulations and in particular health concerns with respect to vaping and the use of cannabis and U.S. hemp products in vaping devices; the risks and uncertainty regarding future product development; changes in regulatory requirements in relation to our business and products; our reliance on licenses issued by and contractual arrangements with various federal, state and provincial governmental authorities; inherent uncertainty associated with projections; future levels of revenues and the impact of increasing levels of competition; third-party manufacturing risks; third-party transportation risks; inflation risks; our exposure to risks related to an agricultural business, including wholesale price volatility and variable product quality; changes in laws, regulations and guidelines and our compliance with such laws, regulations and guidelines; risks relating to inventory write downs; risks relating to our ability to refinance debt as and when required on terms favorable to us and to comply with covenants contained in our debt facilities and debt instruments; risks associated with jointly owned investments; our ability to manage disruptions in credit markets or changes to our credit ratings; the success or timing of completion of ongoing or anticipated capital or maintenance projects; risks related to the integration of acquired businesses; the timing and manner of the legalization of cannabis in the United States; business strategies, growth opportunities and expected investment; counterparty risks and liquidity risks that may impact our ability to obtain loans and other credit facilities on favorable terms; the potential effects of judicial, regulatory or other proceedings, litigation or other investigations, or threatened litigation or proceedings or investigations, on our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows; risks associated with divestment and restructuring;  the anticipated effects of actions of third parties such as competitors, activist investors or federal, state, provincial, territorial or local regulatory authorities, self-regulatory organizations, plaintiffs in litigation or persons threatening litigation; consumer demand for cannabis and U.S. hemp products; the risks that our restructuring actions will not result in the expected cost-savings, efficiencies and other benefits or will result in greater than anticipated turnover in personnel; the implementation and effectiveness of key personnel changes; risks related to stock exchange restrictions; risks related to the protection and enforcement of our intellectual property rights; the risk that cost savings and any other synergies from the CBI Group Investments may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; future levels of capital, environmental or maintenance expenditures, general and administrative and other expenses; risks relating to the long term macroeconomics effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and any future pandemic or epidemic; and the factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2023. Readers are cautioned to consider these and other factors, uncertainties and potential events carefully and not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are provided for the purposes of assisting the reader in understanding our financial performance, financial position and cash flows as of and for periods ended on certain dates and to present information about management's current expectations and plans relating to the future, and the reader is cautioned that the forward-looking statements may not be appropriate for any other purpose. While we believe that the assumptions and expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable based on information currently available to management, there is no assurance that such assumptions and expectations will prove to have been correct. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date they are made and are based on the beliefs, estimates, expectations and opinions of management on that date. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, estimates or opinions, future events or results or otherwise or to explain any material difference between subsequent actual events and such forward-looking statements, except as required by law. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release and other reports we file with, or furnish to, the SEC and other regulatory agencies and made by our directors, officers, other employees and other persons authorized to speak on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.
