“Fiscal year 2021 was a foundational year for our company as we closed our first full year of revenues. In 2022 we anticipate accelerating revenue growth as we activate our Wholesale and Life Sciences growth pillars, while fueling expansion in our global House of Brands,” said Luis Merchan, Chairman and CEO of Flora. “We are proud of the milestones we achieved in 2021, including the completion of key strategic infrastructure projects, the strengthening of our balance sheet and the deployment of our M&A strategy. In 2022, we continue to execute on our plan, highlighted by the acquisition of JustCBD, a leading consumer wellness brand. This acquisition increased Flora’s footprint to over half a million consumers and 14,000 retail stores in the United States. The transaction is already proving accretive as Flora’s unaudited revenues for April represent our strongest revenue month since inception.”

Merchan added, “The completion of our cultivation and extraction facilities has positioned Flora for success in this rapidly evolving industry, as we satisfied the requirements for the cultivation, transformation and export of up to 43.6 tonnes of THC cannabis flower. And in our Life Sciences pillar, we look forward to potential commercial distribution of pharmaceutical-grade products based on the research of Dr. Annabelle Manalo-Morgan.”

FY 2021 Financial Highlights:

  • Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2021 was approximately $9.0 million.

  • Company reiterates guidance of $35M-$45M USD in 2022, which would realize projected revenue growth of 288% - 400% year over year.

FY 2021 Operating Highlights:

  • Completed its IPO listing on Nasdaq under the ticker FLGC in May 2021, as well as completed a subsequent secondary offering, raising an aggregate of approximately $53.7 million in capital through equity offerings in 2021.
  • Completed the acquisition and integration of Vessel Brand, Inc., establishing a foothold in the U.S. cannabis accessories business and improving its e-commerce capabilities across the Flora portfolio of brands.
