Management Commentary

Irwin D. Simon, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer said:

  • "We...have advanced our long-term vision for building a global cannabis lifestyle consumer packaged foods company positioned for sustainable, profitable growth with the completion of our acquisition of SweetWater late in Q2...
    • SweetWater is a cornerstone within our U.S. strategy and a strong complement to our existing Aphria business that we believe will return compelling financial benefits.
    • We already hit the ground running by starting to build upon the strengths of each of our respective complementary cannabis lifestyle brands broadening our consumer reach and enhancing loyalty with existing consumers.
  • We remain excited about our recently announced definitive agreement with Tilray...to create the largest global cannabis company and are on track to close the transaction in the second quarter of the calendar year 2021...  
  • Looking forward, we are planning to execute on the significant strategic and financial opportunities provided by the addition of SweetWater and, upon the closing of the Tilray business combination, including our over $100 million anticipated pre-tax synergies, to generate significant value for our stakeholders."
