Charlotte's Web Reports 2023 Second Quarter Financial Results

August 10, 2023

Encouraging CBD regulatory progress in Congress
Net revenue of $16.0M vs. $18.9M YoY
Cash increased to $61.7M

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Aug. 10, 2023 /CNW/ - (TSX: CWEB) (OTCQX: CWBHF), Charlotte's Web Holdings, Inc. ("Charlotte's Web" or the "Company"), the market leader in full spectrum hemp extract wellness products, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023. 

Regulatory Update

During the second quarter, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") committed to "work at speed" with Congress to resolve a regulatory pathway for hemp-derived CBD. Recent progress has been encouraging surrounding The Hemp Derived Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2023, (bill H.R. 1629) which aims to regulate hemp extract products under the dietary supplement regulatory framework. Charlotte's Web and industry peers have compiled and shared safety and toxicology data with Congress to address concerns raised by the FDA. On July 27th, the U.S. House Oversight and Accountability Subcommittee on Health Care and Financial Services held a hearing on the FDA's failure to regulate hemp-derived CBD products since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. An RFI (Request for Information) was made public immediately after the hearing by the Energy and Commerce Committee, with a deadline of August 18th for the CBD industry participants to engage and support the future regulatory landscape of the category. Charlotte's Web is actively supporting work towards an aligned industry voice coming back to Congress.

"Executing on one of our stated strategic pillars, 'Winning in Washington DC', Charlotte's Web is pleased to be a part of the influential collaboration among consumers and industry stakeholders under a united strategy that is proactively engaged with Congress to support the regulation of hemp CBD as a dietary supplement," said Jared Stanley, Chief Operating Officer. "Additionally, in July, Coalition for Access Now ("CAN"), a 501-c4 political non-profit organization, founded and led by Paige Figi, announced a partnership with the U.S. Pain Foundation, to further advocate for the passage of CBD products to be regulated as a dietary supplement. CAN also has other influential groups such as the American Legion, the nation's largest veteran organization, that has expressed support for CAN's efforts. These partnerships acknowledge the benefits of CBD and the urgency for Congress to pass legislation to ensure consumer access to safe and accurately labeled products for the millions of Americans who use CBD daily." 

Business Review

Charlotte's Web progressed on its stated strategic pillars: winning in Washington DC, returning to growth, and expanding into botanical wellness.

"Executing on our strategic pillar for growth, in the second quarter, we launched ReCreate™ by Charlotte's Web, a new broad-spectrum CBD brand focused on cultural lifestyles for Millennials and GenZers who make up approximately half of the multi-billion-dollar CBD market1," said Jacques Tortoroli, Chief Executive Officer of Charlotte's Web. "These groups are anticipated to become the largest consumer group by 20262 and often view sports and fitness as a form of self-care."

ReCreate is NSF Certified for Sport® and is the official CBD of Major League Baseball© ("MLB") and Angel City Football Club. In July, the Company further cemented its leading position in professional sports by becoming the official CBD partner of the Premier Lacrosse League. Professional sports leagues raise brand awareness and relevance to their audiences, fans, players, and teams, which are ReCreate's target consumers.

"This exposure is particularly important for our e-commerce channel where increased traffic and sessions to www.CharlottesWeb.com and www.ReCreateYou.com are our highest priorities," explained Mr. Tortoroli. "ReCreate products are available on our webstore, and we are launching the portfolio across select retail customers later this year, including Vitamin Shoppe, Fresh Thyme, and Stark International among others - with more to come over time."

To drive future growth in the retail channel, Charlotte's Web achieved category-leading All Commodity Volume (ACV) distribution gains within the Natural Products Retail channel over the first six months of 2023. In the U.S., Charlotte's Web holds the number one market share position in overall retail and e-commerce channels per Nielsen Company (US), LLC, SPINS, LLC/IRI, and The Brightfield Group. In May 2023, the Company's distribution was further expanded in pet retail through a new partnership with Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, America's largest distributor in the pet specialty retail channel, covering more than 6,000 retailers, representing more than 14,000 retail locations.

"We have a robust pipeline of innovation-to-market products that respond to consumer needs with new formulations, formats, and packaging, leveraging our intellectual property and leading science in minor cannabinoids and botanical wellness. We launched ReCreate gummies on July 11th on our new website www.ReCreateYou.com, which directly integrates into our current e-commerce platform," said Mr. Tortoroli. 

"Lastly, in May, we began an initiative to insource the production of topical products, leveraging our Louisville facility and Operations team, while driving down costs."

Charlotte's Web also progressed on its third strategic pillar, expanding into broader Botanical Wellness. On April 6, 2023, Charlotte's Web announced (Press Release) the formation of DeFloria LLC, with a subsidiary of British American Tobacco PLC (LSE: BATS and NYSE: BTI), and AJNA BioSciences PBC, a botanical drug development company. DeFloria was established to pursue a botanical IND through the FDA drug development pathway for a botanical drug to target a neurological condition. In August, DeFloria received Ethics Committee approval to commence a phase 1 clinical trial in Australia.

"We continue to believe we are deploying the right strategies and are confident in our long-term growth outlook; however, we have not yet returned to revenue growth year-over-year, although B2B was essentially flat year-over-year in Q2. We maintain our market leading position which speaks to the overall CBD sector remaining challenged," added Mr. Tortoroli.

Consolidated net revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023, was $16.0 million, a decrease from $18.9 million in the second quarter of 2022. The Company believes that continued positive legislative progress in Washington DC for the regulation of CBD will increase consumer interest and confidence as well as unlock incremental customer opportunities.

Gross profit was $8.9 million, or 55.7% of revenue, as compared to gross profit of $9.3 million, or 49.4% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2022. The improvement was primarily due to higher inventory provisions recorded in Q2 2022.

Direct-to-consumer ("DTC") net revenue through the Company's webstore was $10.7 million, as compared to $13.3 million in Q2 2022. E-commerce sales were negatively impacted by aggressive competitive online pricing and lower traffic to the Company's webstore. Charlotte's Web holds the number one market share position across e-commerce, which is the largest purchase channel for CBD according to the Brightfield Group. The Company continues to invest in this significant category, including a new platform to improve the consumer experience.

Business-to-business ("B2B") retail net revenue was $5.3 million, as compared to $5.6 million in Q2 2022. Lower unit sales to existing retail customers were substantially offset by retail distribution gains achieved in the first six months of 2023.

SG&A Expenses

Total selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in the quarter were $19.6 million, a 13.7% increase from $17.3 million in Q2 2022. The increase reflects the timing of marketing expenses and includes the amortization of the MLB license and media rights assets of $2.1 million, which were not present in the comparable period. Excluding amortization, SG&A increased 1.7% year-over-year. SG&A expenses in the six months ended June 30th were comparable at approximately $37.1 million in 2023 and $37.6 million in 2022, although the prior year period did not include expenses related to the MLB partnership.

Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA

Net income benefited from non-cash gains during the quarter, including a $4.2 million gain in fair value of the Company's derivative instruments, and a $10.7 million gain on a non-cash investment in DeFloria. These gains offset the operating loss and interest expense, resulting in net income of $2.8 million, or $0.02 per share basic and diluted, for the second quarter of 2023. This was an improvement versus a net loss of $7.9 million, or ($0.05) per share basic and diluted, in Q2 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA3 loss for the second quarter of 2023 was $7.1 million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2022.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Net cash provided from operations, for the three months ended June 30, 2023, was $1.0 million as compared to $0.3 million in Q2 2022. Additionally, the second quarter of 2023 included a rights fee payment to MLB, which did not occur in the prior year period.

"We reported positive cash flow in the second quarter, including collecting our $4.2 million IRS Employee Retention Credit as well as prudent expense management, partially offset by MLB quarterly Rights payment of $2.0 million," said Jessica Saxton, Chief Financial Officer of Charlotte's Web. "Our cash balance increased to $61.7 million at quarter end, providing ample working capital to support continued execution of our strategy."

Net cash used in the six months ended June 30th was $5.2 million and $4.3 million in 2023 and 2022, respectively. In the current year, collection of the $4.2 million Employee Retention Credit was offset by MLB Rights payments of $4.0 million. Last year's cashflow included $3.2 million in IRS tax refunds.

The Company's cash and working capital as of June 30, 2023, were $61.7 million and $72.3 million respectively, compared to $67.0 million and $82.3 million on December 31, 2022, respectively.

(3) Non-GAAP Measures – EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA") is not a recognized performance measure under U.S. GAAP. The term EBITDA consists of net loss and excludes interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes other non-cash items such as changes in fair value of financial instruments (Mark-to-Market), Share-based compensation, and impairment of assets. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, our reported financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financials measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed under U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The primary purpose of using non-GAAP financial measures is to provide supplemental information that we believe may be useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate our results in the same way we do. We also present the non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they assist investors in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparing our results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Specifically, we use these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare our annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of our results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Investors should be aware, however, that not all companies define these non-GAAP measures consistently.
