To capitalize on the growing popularity of the NGW brand due to the success of the indoor flower line, the company has launched several new artesanal grade products that can be found in premium dispensaries in cities across California, including San Diego, LA, Modesto, Sacramento and Oakland. Next Green Wave branded prerolls, dabbable extracts and vape cartridges are all currently available throughout California, while the Company’s line of gum drops is expected to hit the market mid October. Next Green Wave followed the same approach that led to the successful flower launch, first releasing products locally in Coalinga at Have A Heart and quickly expanding through our other retail partners and distributors, including some of Los Angeles most well known and respected locations like DTPG, Dr. Greenthumbs.

“Considering the challenges and obstacles this Company has had to overcome over the last few years we are extremely proud to announce the above accomplishments. Now that we have set baselines for production and revenue over the last two quarters, our objectives are threefold. First, continue to optimize operations and improve production metrics to maximize overall flower output at our production facility. Second, continue to grow revenue by increasing branded product sales volume and increasing downline product sales such as extracts, prerolls, vape cartridges and edibles. Finally, get our extraction facility online this year which will add revenue through tolling and decrease internal production costs for downline products.
The whole team has been working hard to meet our continued growing demand as we are sold out week after week. The rapid expansion into retail is in full bloom across California including Oakland, Los Angeles, San Joaquin Valley and San Diego areas.” – Mike Jennings CEO Next Green Wave.

*All financial information is provided in U.S. dollars. The Company provides financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with IFRS. Management uses non-IFRS financial measures, in addition to IFRS financial measures, to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for financial and operational decision making, for planning and forecasting purposes and to evaluate the Company’s financial performance. One example is Adjusted EBITDA, which has limitations as an analytical tool as it excludes from net income as reported, interest, tax, depreciation, other income and expenses, non-cash grow costs expensed for biological assets and unsold inventory, and the non-cash fair value effects of accounting for biological assets and inventories. Management believes that these non-IFRS financial measures reflect the Company’s ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in the business, as they facilitate comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Management also believes that these non-IFRS financial measures enable investors to evaluate the Company’s operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management. These non-IFRS financial measures may also exclude expenses and gains that may be unusual in nature, non-cash, infrequent or not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operating results. As there are no standardized methods of calculating these non-IFRS measures, the Company’s methods may differ from those used by others, and accordingly, the use of these measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures used by others. Accordingly, these non-IFRS measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. While the FY 2019 information available on SEDAR is audited, the quarterly information disclosed above is not.
