Goodness Growth Delivers Solid Quarter, Focused on New York

Goodness Growth Holdings, Inc. (CSE: GDNS) (OTCQX: GDNSF) reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Goodness Growth had total revenue in the first quarter of $15.6 million, an increase of 18.2% as compared to the same time period in 2021. The net loss in the quarter was $14.6 million versus a net loss of $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. The variance compared to the prior year was driven by the write-down of Arizona inventory to realizable value, the impairment of long-lived assets, and increased interest expenses.

“Our first-quarter results reflected continued growth across all of our markets besides Arizona, where we have been working through the loss of biomass related to weather impacts we’ve discussed previously,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kyle Kingsley, M.D. “The recent launch of flower sales in Minnesota’s medical market is going exceptionally well for our Green Goods retail stores in the state, and we also expect the recent transition to adult-use sales in New Mexico to contribute to stronger sales growth throughout the remainder of this year. Our business will continue to benefit from these recent regulatory transitions in our markets, and we also believe it’s possible that adult-use sales could begin in New York sometime during the second half of 2022.”

Excluding contributions from Ohio and Arizona retail, total revenue increased 34.5% and reflected growth in each of the company’s other markets. Retail revenue excluding Arizona increased 40.3% to $12.4 million in Q1 2022. Wholesale revenue, excluding Ohio increased by 17.3% to $3.2 million, reflecting strong growth in MarylandNew York, and Minnesota, partially offset by a decline in the Arizona market.

Verano Updates

In February, the company announced that it agreed to be acquired by Verano Holdings Corp. in a deal valued at approximately $413 million on a fully-diluted basis.

Kingsley continued, “First quarter results were also impacted by an inventory adjustment in Arizona and impairments of long-lived assets in Arizona and Maryland. Given our pending transaction with Verano Holdings Corp. and the license overlaps in these markets, we’ve revised our operating plans. We recently wound down operations at the outdoor farm in Amado, Arizona, and will no longer pursue the phase two expansion in Massey, Maryland. We are continuing to focus on our expansion in New York, and expect the pending transaction with Verano to close sometime during the fourth quarter.”
