Management Commentary

“Over the past nine years, MedMen has built the most valuable retail brand in the cannabis industry by taking advantage of the land grab opportunity and scaling with speed to secure as many flagship assets as possible,” said Adam Bierman, MedMen co-founder and chief executive officer. “We continue to march onward towards profitability. The biggest driver for this phase of the business remains revenue, which continues to increase significantly with new store openings and same store sales growth. Where we are impressively ahead of schedule is in leveraging our scale to create greater operational efficiencies across the organization. Execution keeps improving while corporate SG&A is decreasing.”

Since going public one year ago, MedMen has established a track record of success, including achieving a 7% market share in California (inclusive of revenue from pending and pre-closing revenue from recently closed acquisitions), an $11 billion cannabis market. The Company is slated to open 15 new locations across the U.S. during the remainder of calendar 2019. Of the planned locations, 12 will be in Florida, where MedMen is licensed for up to 35 locations.
