Path to Profitability
At Greenlane, we are hyper focused on getting our business profitable and well-capitalized for long-term sustainability. We have been working hard to right-size our business, focus on core areas, and reduce our overall cost structure while improving our margins in an effort to be profitable in Q4 2023.
In addition, we are emphasizing our higher-margin proprietary Greenlane brands, including Eyce, DaVinci, Groove, Marley Natural, Keith Haring, and Higher Standards. We believe this forms a central part of our growth strategy and will enhance our overall gross margin profile and accelerate our path to profitability.
On a year over year basis for the six months ended June 30th we have experienced a significant improvement in loss from operation of 39.8%. We reduced our total operating expenses from $15.0 million in Q1 2023 to 14.1 million in Q2 2023, a reduction of over $0.9 million or 6.2%. We reduced our labor-related expenses by 4.0%, and have reduced general and administrative expenses by 9.2% for the same comparable periods. Loss from operations remained relatively flat at a loss of 9.5 million in Q2 versus a loss of 9.5 million in Q1.
“We are continuing our transformative strategy by focusing on our path to profitability, enhancing and growing our leading position as a product innovator and disruptor in our segment, and eliminating our preexisting debt of $15 million,” commented Craig Snyder, Greenlane CEO.
“In the second quarter we continued to make substantial progress in reducing our operating expenses, We completed consolidation of eight of our facilities including our former third-party logistics partner, Verst into our Moreno Valley warehouse location, which is anticipated to save the company more than $4 million annually, and we believe, through our own management, give customers a better experience with Greenlane. We have similar initiatives being executed in Technology and Professional Services and expect to continue to realize those savings over the next 2 quarters.
Labor is another area where the business has become more efficient, and we expect continued reductions in both headcount and overall cost of labor. In Q2 we had charges related to severance of two former senior executives which clouded the gains we have made in overall cost of labor. These two agreements represented more than 12% of the overall labor number in Q2 and are one time in nature. We expect overall cost of labor to continue to decline and are focused on a labor structure that brings the business to profitability.
This quarter we launched five new products from our house brands. An addition to the Eyce ORAFLEX line with the Rig, a new line of Groove glass, the Groove Micro Rigs and a Limited-Edition Spoon Pipe. From DaVinci we brought a new color way to market in the MIQRO-C line along with the ARTIQ, the newest premium portable vaporizer. Offering DaVinci’s clean technology in the convenience of a 510 oil-compatible vaporizer, the ARTIQ has garnered a lot of popularity and critical acclaim in a short period of time.
In a return to our roots, we also announced our expansion of products to include disposable nicotine offerings. This is part of our strategic vision as a leader in the market to diversify our product portfolio. With a total addressable U.S. market exceeding $6 billion annually and expected to grow at a compound annual rate exceeding 11%, disposable nicotine products have a significant impact on our customer revenues. We identified industry leading partners, manufacturers, and brands to capitalize on our expansion into the nicotine industry including Fume, Death Row Vapes, Packspod, and Tyson 2.0.
Finally, in order to make the business scalable and durable, we recently announced payoff of our previously existing facility with Whitehawk Capital. The business was able to pay off this $15mm facility prior to the first anniversary date and we believe by doing so allows us a much more authority over our future.
