Unrivaled Brands Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Reports Top Line Year Over Year Quarterly Revenue Growth of 131%

SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unrivaled Brands, Inc. (OTCQX: UNRV) ("Unrivaled" or the "Company"), a multi-state vertically integrated company focused on the cannabis sector with operations in California, Oregon, and Nevada, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Frank Knuettel, Chief Executive Officer of Unrivaled Brands stated, “On the operations side, we have continued to make improvements and see gains in our existing operations. With revenues of $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, we recorded our largest quarter of revenues since the fourth quarter of 2019, registering quarterly revenue growth of approximately 131% compared to the same period of 2020.

“As part of this revenue growth, we continue to see consistent month over month revenue gains at both of our dispensaries. Since we reopened our Oakland facility in October 2020, we have seen average monthly sales growth of 12.0% per month and in April, recorded the highest revenue month at our Oakland dispensary since February 2020. Similarly, at our San Leandro dispensary, since we reopened in July 2020, we have seen average monthly sales growth of 7.0% per month, and in April, we recorded the highest revenue month at our San Leandro dispensary since December 2019.”

Knuettel continued, “On the other side of the ledger, we continue to review our operations and drive appropriate cost reductions, and at the same time, feel that we have largely cleared out the historical operational excesses.

With the sale of our investment in Hydrofarm, we added approximately $40 million to our balance sheet, without dilution. We previously entered into a definitive agreement to sell our non-operating N. 4th Street property in Las Vegas, which closed after the end of the quarter, netting the Company approximately $825k in early August. In addition, the sale removed ongoing carrying costs associated with its ownership, including the repayment of a $1.6 million mortgage.    

I believe our most challenging days now lay behind us and with the now closed merger with Unrivaled Brands, we remain focused on building Unrivaled in a focused and coherent manner, with an eye towards our shareholders. We have been working hard and diligently towards this goal, and while much work remains, I firmly believe the pieces are coming together.”

Financial Update

  • Our gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $2.3 million, compared to a gross profit of approximately $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, an increase of $1.1 million.

  • Our Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were approximately $6.2 million, compared to approximately 6.3 million for the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of $91k or 1.4%.
