Aurora Cannabis Announces Fiscal 2024 Second Quarter Results and Delivers Record Positive Adjusted EBITDA


NASDAQ | TSX: ACB

EDMONTON, AB, Nov. 9, 2023 /CNW/ - Aurora Cannabis Inc. (the "Company" or "Aurora") (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), the Canadian company opening the world to cannabis, today announced its financial and operational results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2024. As the fiscal year 2023 consisted of three quarters, the year-over-year comparison quarter for Q2 2024 ending September 30, 2023, is Q1 2023 ending September 30, 2022.

"This is our strongest fiscal year to date, led by robust net revenue1 growth in our high-margin medical cannabis segment, coupled with positive adjusted EBITDA1 for the fourth consecutive quarter," stated Miguel Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Aurora. "We are experiencing the benefits of diversification across our cannabis and non-cannabis platforms characterized by stability in Canada, record revenue in Europe and Australia, and early success with our most recent acquisition, Bevo Farms."

Mr. Martin continued, "We are also proceeding with capturing $40 million in annualized cost efficiencies during fiscal 2024, in addition to the approximate $400 million savings we delivered over the last three years. By executing on our plan to deliver top-line growth and increased profitability, we are moving closer to reaching our target of positive free cash flow in calendar year 2024."

Mr. Martin added, "Our balance sheet is in a strong net cash position to pursue profitable growth opportunities through M&A, and we will repay the remainder of our US$5.3million of convertible senior notes in February 2024. The combination of industry leading margins, a strong balance sheet and a proven track record of execution, point to Aurora's best days laying squarely ahead."

Second Quarter 2024 Highlights
(Unless otherwise stated, comparisons are made between fiscal Q2 2024, Q1 2024, and Q1 2023 results and are in Canadian dollars)

Consolidated Revenue and Adjusted Gross Profit:
Total net revenue1 was $63.4 million, as compared to $48.6 million in the prior year period. The increase from the prior period is mainly due to growth in our global medical cannabis business and quarterly revenue in our plant propagation business.

1 This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are intended to supplement, not substitute for, comparable GAAP financial measures. See "Non-GAAP Measures" below for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures. 

Excluding the impact of the non-core bulk wholesale, adjusted gross margin before fair value adjustments1 on cannabis net revenue1 for Q2 2024 remained strong and steady, and well above the industry average at 55%.

Consolidated adjusted gross margin before fair value adjustments1 was 51% in Q2 2024 (Q1 2023: 51%).  Adjusted gross profit before FV adjustments1 was $32.1 million in Q2 2024 (Q1 2023: $24.3 million), an increase of 32%.

Medical Cannabis:
Medical cannabis net revenue1 was $43.8 million, a 42% increase from the prior year quarter, delivering 69% of Aurora's Q2 2024 consolidated net revenue[1] and 85% of Adjusted gross profit before fair value adjustments1.

The increase in net revenue1 of $12.8 million was primarily due to growth in our European business, which benefitted from the introduction of new proprietary high potency cultivars, and higher volumes sold to Australia, a key export market for the Company.

Adjusted gross margin before fair value adjustments1 on medical cannabis net revenue remained strong at 63% for the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to 68% in the prior year period and within the Company's target range of 60% and above. The continuing positive impact of Aurora's new higher-yielding, higher-potency cultivars, in addition to the decision to close our Nordic facility and supply the European markets from our EU GMP facilities in Canada, are expected to further improve margins for our medical business through the remainder of this fiscal year.

Consumer Cannabis:
Aurora's consumer cannabis net revenue1 was $12.0 million, compared to $13.7 million in the prior year quarter. The change is partially due to the exit from the US CBD business, as well as a refocus on supporting premium categories and the timing of new innovation launches.

Adjusted gross margin before fair value adjustments1 on consumer cannabis net revenue1 was 27%, increasing by 2% compared to the prior year quarter. The sequential increase is largely due to higher efficiency in production operations and product sales with higher margins relative to the comparative prior periods.    

Plant Propagation:
Plant propagation net revenue1 was wholly comprised from the Bevo business, contributing $7.2 million of net revenue1. The seasonality of the current Bevo business delivers 65-75% of its annual revenues in the first half of a calendar year as orders are fulfilled.

Adjusted gross margin before fair value adjustments1 on plant propagation revenue was 22% for the Q2 2024 period.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A"):
Adjusted SG&A1 was $27.7 million in Q2 2024, which excludes $7.6 million of restructuring, non-recurring, and out-of-period costs. Adjusted SG&A1continue to be well controlled and in line with the Company's current target of $30 million.

Adjusted R&D1, was $0.9 million in Q2 2024, which is relatively consistent as compared to the prior year quarter.

Net Income / Loss:
Net income from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $0.3 million compared to a net loss of $45.5 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in net loss of $45.7 million from the comparative prior year quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit of  $33.5 million, an increase in other income of $19.1 million, and a decrease in G&A expense of $6.1 million.

Adjusted EBITDA:
Adjusted EBITDA1 was $3.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to a loss of $6.2 million in the prior year quarter. The significant improvement in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to higher adjusted gross profits before fair value adjustments of $7.7 million, and reduction in adjusted SG&A and R&D expenses of $2.1 million.

Fiscal Q3 2024 Expectations:

In Q3 fiscal 2024

Aurora's achievement of significant and sustainable operating cost and SG&A reductions has now resulted in four consecutive quarters with positive Adjusted EBITDA. This has paved the path towards positive free cashflow in calendar year 2024.

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, the Company settled approximately $41.2 million (US$30.5 million) aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes, with the issuance of 53,901,522 Common Shares.

Subsequent to September 30, 2023, the Company repurchased approximately $23.1 million (US$17.0 million) aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes, for aggregate consideration, including accrued interest, of approximately $23.2 million (US$17.1 million). The remaining convertible debenture balance as of the date hereof is approximately $7.3 million (US$5.3 million) and is expected to be settled at or prior to maturity.
