Company to Host Third Quarter 2021 Conference Call and Webcast on November 16, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time
BOCA RATON, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 3, 2021 / Greenlane Holdings, Inc. (“Greenlane” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:GNLN), one of the largest global sellers of premium cannabis accessories, child-resistant packaging, and specialty vaporization products, today announced preliminary financial data for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021, which reflects approximately one month of combined operations following the successful merger of Greenlane and KushCo Holdings, Inc. (“KushCo”), which was completed on August 31, 2021.
Preliminary Estimated and Unaudited Third Quarter 2021 Financial and Other Data:
On a preliminary (unaudited) basis, the Company anticipates:
- Net sales of between approximately $40 million and $41 million
- GAAP Gross margin of between approximately (2)% to 0%
- Adjusted Gross margin of between approximately 19% to 21%
- Total cash balance of approximately $13 million
- Represents charges relating to one-time inventory rationalization adjustments implemented in connection with the closing of the merger with KushCo Holdings, Inc. Amount is currently under review and represents management’s current estimate. The final inventory rationalization adjustment for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, has not been determined as of the date hereof and is subject to change as a result of, among other things, the completion of our financial closing procedures and the preparation of our financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. The information presented herein should not be considered a substitute for the financial information we will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 once it becomes available.
As we shared when announcing our merger with KushCo, we identified a small part of the legacy Greenlane business that competed with KushCo’s packaging business. A significant portion of our rationalization work post-merger has been to eliminate the redundancies between those two units and to write off certain items that are not selling as efficiently.
Nick Kovacevich, CEO of Greenlane Holdings
We’re paying close attention to items generating robust cash-to-cash cycles, taking out the lower-margin items that require us to invest significant working capital and instead reallocating those resources to higher-margin goods.
Kovacevich added, “This has resulted in us tightening up our SKU count and being more judicious with our working capital, while also generating cash in a non-dilutive way by selling inventory that can fund our organic and inorganic growth initiatives. We believe this initiative will set us up to have a stronger balance sheet that is more flexible to meet the demands of an evolving global supply chain that has been strained in recent months with global container shortages, COVID-19 challenges and restrictions, and higher freight costs.”

Greenlane’s estimated and unaudited consolidated financial data presented above are preliminary and were prepared by management in good faith based upon internal reporting for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Although Greenlane has not identified any unusual or unique events or trends that occurred during the period which might materially affect these estimates, actual results may still be outside of the ranges provided. Greenlane’s independent registered public accounting firm, Marcum LLP, has not audited, reviewed, compiled or performed any procedures on this preliminary financial data. You should not place undue reliance on this preliminary and estimated financial information and should view this information in the context of Greenlane’s third quarter 2021 results when such results are disclosed in Greenlane’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2021.
Adjusted Gross Margin
Adjusted gross margin is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company calculates as total revenues less cost of revenues, prepared in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for certain non-recurring, non-cash items to the extent such items relate to cost of revenues, including charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives. The Company uses Adjusted gross margin as a supplemental performance measure because it believes that Adjusted gross margin is beneficial to investors for purpose of measuring the Company’s operational performance, exclusive of certain non-recurring non-cash items that are not expected to be incurred in future periods. Specifically, in excluding charges relating to the Company’s inventory rationalization initiatives, which the Company does not believe are indicative of the Company’s operating performance, Adjusted gross margin provides a performance measure that, when compared period-over-period, more accurately reflects the Company’s operational performance. Adjusted gross margin should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of Adjusted gross margin may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies.
