Management Commentary

“As we shared when announcing our merger with KushCo, we identified a small part of the legacy Greenlane business that competed with KushCo’s packaging business,” said Nick Kovacevich, CEO of Greenlane Holdings. “A significant portion of our rationalization work post-merger has been to eliminate the redundancies between those two units and to write off certain items that are not selling as efficiently. We’re paying close attention to items generating robust cash-to-cash cycles, taking out the lower-margin items that require us to invest significant working capital and instead reallocating those resources to higher-margin goods. This has resulted in us tightening up our SKU count and being more judicious with our working capital, while also generating cash in a non-dilutive way by selling inventory that can fund our organic and inorganic growth initiatives. We believe this initiative will set us up to have a stronger balance sheet that is more flexible to meet the demands of an evolving global supply chain that has been strained in recent months with global container shortages, COVID-19 challenges and restrictions, and higher freight costs.”

Adjusted Gross Margin

Adjusted gross margin is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company calculates as total revenues less cost of revenues, prepared in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for certain non-recurring, non-cash items to the extent such items relate to cost of revenues, including charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives. The Company uses Adjusted gross margin as a supplemental performance measure because it believes that Adjusted gross margin is beneficial to investors for purpose of measuring the Company’s operational performance, exclusive of certain non-recurring non-cash items that are not expected to be incurred in future periods. Specifically, in excluding charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives, which the Company does not believe are indicative of the Company’s operating performance, Adjusted gross margin provides a performance measure that, when compared period-over-period, more accurately reflects the Company’s operational performance. Adjusted gross margin should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of Adjusted gross margin may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies.
