First Fiscal Quarter 2017 Company Highlights

  • We have serviced 49 out of the 91 potential customers in the Southern Nevada market and about 36 of those are current regularly producing clients
  • Ended quarter with $409,751 of net sales through our state-of-the-art Nevada cannabis testing lab, a quarter over quarter growth rate of approximately 32% from the previous quarter's net sales of $311,153, and a 301% increase on a year over year basis
  • Reduced our net loss by 93% over the comparative quarter, or $(1,606,701), from $(1,732,861) for the comparative three months ended December 31, 2015 to $(126,160) for the three months ended December 31, 2016
  • Realized a positive net cash flow from operating activities and decreased our net cash used in investing activities by approximately $65,000, or 97%, from the comparative three months ended December 31, 2015
  • Our Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $(86,637), compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(164,907) for the previous fiscal quarter, an improvement of approximately 47% on a quarter over quarter basis
  • Our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $(86,637), compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $(366,570) for the comparative three months ended December 31, 2015, an improvement of approximately 76% on a year over year basis

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) before (i) other income (expense), (ii) interest income, (iii) interest expense, (iv) bad debts, (v) depreciation and amortization, (vi) impairment of development costs, (vii) non-cash expenses relating to share based payments recognized under ASC Topic 718, (viii) gain on early extinguishment of debt, and (ix) equity in losses of unconsolidated entity. We believe the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors regarding our current financial performance; however, Adjusted EBITDA does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to GAAP measurements. Specifically, we believe Adjusted EBITDA results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain income and expenses that our management believes are not indicative of our core operating results, we believe that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that Adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss is included below:

Management Comment

"Our first fiscal quarter of 2017 demonstrated strong growth over our first fiscal quarter of 2016, and continued growth on a quarter over quarter basis as our cannabis testing in Las Vegas continues to grow. We are extremely pleased with our increasing revenues and implementation of our plan of operations. We have gained more market share than we had conservatively estimated by this time and are pleased to report that we have performed testing services for 49 of the potential 91 customers in Southern Nevada that have been granted final certificates of operation from the State of Nevada. We further anticipate that the number of potential customers with State certificates will at least double when recreational cannabis begins production later this year and with 42 million people visiting Las Vegas every year will probably have to double again in 2018. We have realized positive cash flows from operating activities and believe we are poised to aggressively expand our footprint as we demonstrate the success of our Las Vegas lab and take advantage of the recently passed recreational cannabis laws in Nevada," explains Digipath COO, Todd Denkin.
