For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 and 2020

 

1.            NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Ayr Wellness Inc. (formerly Ayr Strategies Inc.) (“Ayr” or the “Company”) is a vertically integrated cannabis multi-state operator in the U.S., with cannabis operations in Massachusetts, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, and Ohio. Through its operating companies, Ayr is a leading cultivator, manufacturer, and retailer of cannabis products and branded cannabis packaged goods, and provides operational and service support to licensed cannabis companies. The Company was previously a special purpose acquisition corporation (“SPAC”) which was incorporated for the purpose of effecting an acquisition of one or more businesses or assets, by way of a merger, amalgamation, arrangement, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization, or any other similar business combination involving the Company, referred to as the Company’s “Qualifying Transaction”. The Company had only one operating segment, cannabis sales, during the period ended June 30, 2021. As the Company has experienced rapid growth, operating segments will be further analyzed and are subject to future change.

 

The Company is a reporting issuer in the United States and Canada. The Company’s subordinate, restricted, and limited voting shares (“Subordinate Shares”) and warrants (“Warrants”), are trading on the Canadian Stock Exchange (the “CSE”), under the symbols “AYR.A”, “AYR.WT” and “AYR.RT”, respectively. The Company’s Subordinate Shares are also trading on the Over-the-Counter Market (“OTC”) in the United States under the symbol “AYRWF”. The Company originally traded on the OTC under the symbol “AYRSF”, however, that changed on December 4, 2020 to AYRWF.

 

History of the Company

 

The Company was incorporated on July 31, 2017 under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and continued on May 24, 2019 into British Columbia under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) in connection with its Qualifying Transaction. The registered office of the Company is located at 666 Burrard Street, Suite 1700, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 2X8. The head office of the Company is located at 595 Madison Avenue, 20th Floor, New York, New York, 10022.

 

On September 12, 2018, the Company incorporated a wholly-owned subsidiary in Nevada, United States, named CSAC Holdings Inc., to facilitate the proposed Qualifying Transaction. On September 17, 2018, CSAC Holdings Inc. incorporated a wholly-owned subsidiary in Nevada, United States, named CSAC Acquisition Inc. (“CSAC AcquisitionCo”).

 

For information on the Company’s Qualifying Transaction, please refer to the Company’s final non-offering prospectus dated February 15, 2019 and the Company’s management information circular dated February 19, 2019.

 

On May 24, 2019, the Company completed its Qualifying Transaction, including through operational and service agreements, of the target businesses of Washoe Wellness, LLC (“Washoe”), The Canopy NV, LLC (“Canopy”), Sira Naturals, Inc. (“Sira”), LivFree Wellness, LLC (“LivFree”) and CannaPunch of Nevada LLC (“CannaPunch”), which collectively constituted its Qualifying Transaction (collectively, the “Qualifying Transaction”).

On March 1, 2021, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) declared effective the Company’s Registration Statement (No. 333-253466) on Form F-10 (“the Registration Statement”) filed on February 24, 2021.  The Registration Statement was made by a foreign issuer that is permitted, under the U.S. / Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System (“MJDS”) adopted by the United States, to prepare the Registration Statement in accordance with the disclosure requirements of Canadian issuers. As such, these interim financial statements are being prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the rules and regulations of Canadian securities regulators and, where applicable, the SEC.

 

Results of interim periods should not be considered indicative of the results for the full year. These interim financial statements include estimates and assumptions of management that affect the amounts reported in the interim financial statements. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

The interim financial statements are presented in United States dollars (US$ or $) which, following the close of the Qualifying Transaction, became the Company’s presentation currency. The functional currency of each entity is determined separately in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 830 – Foreign Currency Matters and is measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates (“the functional currency”). The functional currency of Ayr, the parent, is CDN$ and for each of the United States subsidiaries is US$.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

3.2 Revenue

 

ASU 2014-09 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) specifies how and when revenue should be recognized based on a five-step model, which is applied to all contracts with customers. Through the application of the standard, the Company applies the following five-step model to determine the amount and timing of revenue to be recognized:

 

·Identifying the contract with a customer

 

·Identifying the performance obligations within the contract

 

·Determining the transaction price

 

·Allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations

 

·Recognizing revenue when/as performance obligation(s) are satisfied.

 

In some cases, judgment is required in determining whether the customer is a business or the end consumer. This evaluation is made based on whether the business obtains control of the product before transferring to the end consumer. Control of the product transfers at a point in time either upon shipment to or receipt by the customer, depending on the contractual terms. In determining the appropriate time of sale, the Company takes into consideration a) the Company’s right to payment for the goods or services; b) customer’s legal title; c) transfer of physical possession of the goods; and d) timing of acceptance of goods.

 

Revenue is recognized based on the sale of cannabis for a fixed price when control is transferred. The amount recognized reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive, taking into account any variation that is expected to result from rights of return and discounts. Dispensary revenue is recognized at the point of sale while wholesale revenue is recognized once Ayr transfers the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the goods and does not retain material involvement associated with ownership or control over the goods sold.

 

3.3 Cash

 

The Company considers the following to be cash: cash deposits in financial institutions and cash held in Company safe or lockbox at operational locations. The Company has banking relationships in all jurisdictions in which it operates. In addition, the Company has cash balances in excess of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “FDIC”) limits.

 

3.4 Business combination

 

Acquisitions of subsidiaries and businesses are accounted for using the acquisition method in accordance with ASC 805 – Business Combination (“ASC 805”). The Company measures goodwill as the fair value of the consideration transferred, including the recognized amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree, less the net recognized amount of the identifiable assets and liabilities assumed, all measured as of the acquisition date.

 

Consideration transferred includes the fair value of the assets transferred (including cash), the liabilities incurred by the Company on behalf of the acquiree, any contingent consideration and any equity interests issued by the Company. Transaction costs, other than those associated with the issuance of debt or equity securities that the Company incurs in connection with a business combination, are expensed as incurred.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

3.4 Business combination (continued)

 

The acquisition date is the date when the Company obtains control of the acquiree. Contingent consideration is measured at its acquisition date fair value and included as part of the consideration transferred in a business combination. Contingent consideration that is classified as a liability is re-measured at subsequent reporting dates in accordance with the criteria and guidance provided under ASC 450 – Contingencies, as appropriate with corresponding gain or loss recorded in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

3.5 Inventory

 

Inventories are primarily comprised of finished goods, work-in-process, raw materials, and supplies. Inventory is valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Net realizable value is determined as the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. Raw materials and work-in-process is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined using the weighted average cost method. Finished goods inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined on the first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) accounting method.

 

Costs incurred during the growing process are capitalized as incurred to the extent that cost is less than net realizable value. Any subsequent post-harvest costs, including direct costs such as materials, labor, related overhead, and depreciation expense on equipment attributable to processing, are capitalized to inventory to the extent that cost is less than net realizable value. Inventories of purchased finished goods and packing materials are initially valued at cost and subsequently at the lower of cost and net realizable value. The Company reviews inventories for obsolete, redundant, and slow-moving goods and any such inventories identified are written down to net realizable value.

 

3.6 Property, plant, and equipment (“PPE”)

 

PPE is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. The cost of an item of PPE consists of the purchase price, any costs directly attributable to bringing the asset to the location and condition necessary for its intended use and an initial estimate of the costs of dismantling and removing the item and restoring the site on which it is located.

 

Depreciation is provided at rates calculated to write off the cost of PPE, less their estimated residual value, using the straight-line method over the following expected useful lives:

 

·Land – not depreciated

 

·Buildings – 39 years

 

·Leasehold improvements – the shorter of the useful life or life of the lease

 

·Furniture and fixtures – 5 to 7 years

 

·Office equipment – 3 to 5 years

 

·Machinery and equipment – 5 to 15 years

 

·Auto and trucks – 5 years

 

·Assets under construction – not depreciated

 

An item of PPE is derecognized upon disposal, when held for sale, or when no future economic benefits are expected to arise from the continued use of the asset. Any gain or loss arising on disposal of the asset, determined as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset, is recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.6 Property, plant, and equipment (“PPE”) (continued)

 

Assets under construction are transferred to the appropriate asset class when available for use and depreciation of the assets commences at that point of time.

 

The Company conducts an annual assessment of the residual balances, useful lives, and depreciation methods being used for PPE and any changes arising from the assessment are applied by the Company prospectively.

 

Where an item of PPE comprises major components with different useful lives, the components are accounted for as separate items of PPE. Expenditures incurred to replace a component of an item of PPE that is accounted for separately, including major inspection and overhaul expenditures are capitalized.

 

The Company capitalizes interest on debt financing invested in projects under construction. Upon the asset becoming available for use, capitalized interest costs, as a portion of the total cost of the asset, are depreciated over the estimated useful life of the related asset.

 

3.7 Intangible assets

 

Intangible assets are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment losses, if any. Intangible assets acquired in a business combination are measured at fair value as of the acquisition date. Amortization periods of assets with finite lives are based on management’s estimates at the date of acquisition and are amortized over their estimated useful lives. Intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are not subject to amortization and are tested annually for impairment, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that they might be impaired.

 

(a)  Goodwill

 

The Company measures goodwill as the fair value of the consideration transferred, including the recognized amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree, less the net recognized amount of the identifiable assets and liabilities assumed, all measured as of the acquisition date. Goodwill is allocated to a specific reporting unit or allocated between reporting units based on the relative fair value of each reporting unit. The Company’s policy is to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine if it was more-likely-than-not that the reporting unit’s carrying value is less than the fair value, indicating the potential for goodwill impairment. The amount of goodwill impairment is determined as the excess of the carrying value of the reporting unit’s goodwill over the fair value of that reporting unit. Impairment testing is performed annually by the Company or more frequently, if events or changes in circumstances indicate that they might be impaired. Management makes estimates during impairment testing as judgment is required to determine indicators of impairment and estimates are used to measure impairment losses. The Company assesses the fair values of its intangible assets, and its reporting unit for goodwill testing purposes, as necessary, using an income-based approach. Under the income approach, fair value is based on the present value of estimated future cash flows.

 

(b)  Finite life intangible assets

 

Intangible assets are recorded at cost, less accumulated amortization and impairment losses. Amortization is recorded on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, which do not exceed the contractual period, if any. Intangible assets, which include licences/permits, right-to-use licenses, host community agreements, and trade name/brand have useful lives of 15, 15, 15, and 5 years, respectively. Such assets are tested annually for impairment, or more frequently, if events or changes in circumstances indicate that they might be impaired. The estimated useful lives, residual values, and amortization methods are reviewed at each year-end, and any changes in estimates are accounted for prospectively.

3.7 Intangible assets (continued)

 

(c)  Impairment of long-lived assets

 

Long-lived assets such as PPE and definite-lived intangible assets are grouped with other assets and liabilities at the lowest level for which identifiable independent cash flows are available (“asset group”). The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. In order to determine if assets have been impaired, the impairment test is a two-step approach wherein the recoverability test is performed first to determine whether the long-lived asset is recoverable. The recoverability test (Step 1) compares the carrying amount of the asset to the sum of its future undiscounted cash flows using entity specific assumptions generated through the asset’s use and eventual disposition. If the carrying amount of the asset is less than the cash flows, the asset is recoverable and an impairment is not recorded. If the carrying amount of the asset is greater than the cash flows, the asset is not recoverable and an impairment loss calculation (Step 2) is required. The measurement of the impairment loss to be recognized is based on the difference between the fair value and the carrying value of the asset group. Fair value can be determined using a market approach, income approach, or cost approach. The cash flow projection and fair value represents management’s best estimate, using appropriate and customary assumptions, projections and methodologies, at the date of evaluation. The reversal of impairment losses is prohibited.

 

3.8 Leases

 

The Company assesses whether a contract is or contains a lease, at inception of a contract. Leases are recognized as a right-of-use asset (“ROU”) and corresponding liability at the commencement date based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term. Operating leases are included in ROU – operating and lease liabilities – operating on the interim balance sheets. For operating leases, the Company records operating lease expense. Finance leases are included in ROU – finance, net and lease liabilities - finance are included in other current liabilities and other non-current liabilities on the interim balance sheets. For finance leases, the Company records interest expense on the lease liability in addition to amortizing the right-of-use asset (generally straight-line) over the shorter of the lease term or the useful life of the right-of-use asset. The Company primarily leases space for corporate offices, retail, cultivation, and manufacturing under non-cancellable operating leases. ROU assets represent the right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease.

 

Lease liabilities include the net present value of fixed payments (including in-substance fixed payments), variable lease payments that are not based on an index or a rate or subject to a fair market value renewal, amounts expected to be payable by the lessee under residual value guarantees, the exercise price of a purchase option if the lessee is reasonably certain to exercise that option, and payments of penalties for terminating the lease, if the lease term reflects the lessee exercising that option. The Company allocates the consideration in the contract to each lease component on the basis of the relative standalone price of the lease component and the aggregate stand-alone price of the non-lease components. The lease payments are discounted using the interest rate implicit in the lease or, if that rate cannot be determined, the lessee’s incremental borrowing rate. The period over which the lease payments are discounted is the reasonably certain lease term, including renewal options that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise. Renewal options are included in a number of leases across the Company.

 

Payments associated with short-term leases are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss. Short-term leases are leases with a lease term of 12 months or less. Variable lease payments that depend on an index or a rate or are subject to a fair market value renewal are expensed as incurred and recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

3.9 Equity investments 

 

An associate is an entity over which the Company exercises significant influence. Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy of the investee but without control or joint control over those policies. Interests in associates are accounted for using the equity method and are initially recognized at cost. Subsequent to initial recognition, the carrying value of the Company’s interest in an associate is adjusted for the Company’s share of income or loss and distributions of the investee. The carrying value of associates is assessed for impairment at each balance sheet date. Significant influence is presumed if the Company holds between 20% and 50% of the voting rights, unless evidence exists to the contrary.

 

Joint control is the contractually agreed sharing of control of an arrangement, which exists only when decisions about the relevant activities require the unanimous consent of the parties sharing control. Investees in which the Company has joint control and rights to the net assets thereof are defined as joint ventures. Joint ventures are also accounted for under the equity method.

 

3.10 Non-controlling interests

 

Equity interests owned by parties that are not shareholders of the Company are considered non-controlling interests. The share of net assets attributable to non-controlling interests are presented as a component of equity while the share of net income or loss is recognized in equity. Changes in Ayr’s ownership interest that do not result in a loss of control are accounted for as equity transactions. The Company does not have any non-controlling interests.

 

3.11 Derivatives

 

The Company evaluates all of its agreements to determine if such instruments have derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then revalued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the Company’s interim financial statements. In calculating the fair value of derivative liabilities, the Company uses a valuation model when Level 1 inputs are not available to estimate fair value at each reporting date (see Note 19). The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified as current or non-current based on whether net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the interim financial statements date.

 

3.12 Loss per share

 

The basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of shares outstanding, including Subordinate Shares, multiple voting shares of the Company (“Multiple Voting Shares”), and Exchangeable Shares (as defined in Note 4), during the period. The diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution of shares by adjusting the weighted average number of shares outstanding to assume conversion of potentially dilutive shares, such as Warrants, restricted stock units (“RSUs”), shares related to contingent consideration (“contingent shares”), and vested options. The “treasury stock method” is used for the assumed proceeds upon the exercise of the Exchangeable Shares, Warrants, and vested options that are used to purchase Subordinate Shares at the average market price during the period. If the Company incurs a net loss during a reporting period, the calculation of fully diluted loss per share will not include potentially dilutive equity instruments such as Warrants, RSUs, contingent shares, and vested options, therefore, basic loss per share and diluted loss per share will be the same.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.13 Stock-based payments

 

(a) Stock-based payment transactions

 

Certain employees (including directors and senior executives) of the Company receive a portion of their remuneration in the form of stock-based payment transactions, whereby employees render services as consideration for equity instruments (“equity settled transactions”).

 

Share-based payments to non-employees are measured at the fair value of goods or services received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued. In situations where equity instruments are issued to non-employees and some or all of the fair value of the good or service received by the Company as consideration cannot be specifically identified, they are measured at fair value of the stock-based payment.

 

The costs of equity-settled transactions with employees are measured by reference to the fair value of the stock price at the date on which they are granted, using an appropriate valuation model. The value of the transaction is expensed through the vesting period.

 

The costs of equity-settled transactions are recognized, together with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period in which the performance and/or service conditions are fulfilled, ending on the date on which the relevant employees become fully entitled to the award (the “vesting date”).

 

The cumulative expense is recognized for equity-settled transactions at each reporting date until the vesting date reflects the Company’s best estimate of the number of equity instruments that will ultimately vest. The income or loss for a period represents the movement in cumulative expense recognized as of the beginning and end of that period and the corresponding amount is represented in contributed surplus. At the end of each reporting period, the Company re-assesses its estimates of the number of awards that are expected to vest and recognizes the impact of the revisions in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

No expense is recognized for awards that do not ultimately vest, except for awards where vesting is conditional upon a market condition, which are treated as vesting irrespective of whether or not the market condition is satisfied provided that all other performance and/or service conditions are satisfied.

 

Where the terms of an equity settled award are modified, the minimum expense recognized is the grant date fair value of the unmodified award, provided the original terms of the award are met. An additional expense is recognized for any modification which increases the total fair value of the stock-based payment arrangement or is otherwise beneficial to the employee as measured at the date of modification. Where an award is cancelled by the Company or the counterparty, any remaining element of the fair value of the award is derecognized at that time through the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

RSUs are issued on the vesting dates, sometimes net of the applicable statutory tax withholding to be paid by the Company on behalf of the employees. In those instances, lower shares are issued than the number of RSUs outstanding and the tax withholding is recorded as a reduction to paid-in capital.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.13 Stock-based payments (continued)

 

(b) Warrants

 

The Company determines the accounting classification of warrants, as either liability or equity, by assessing ASC 480 – Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity and ASC 815 – Derivatives and Hedging. Under ASC 480, warrants are considered a liability if the warrants are mandatorily redeemable, obligate the Company to settle the warrants or the underlying shares by paying cash or other assets, or warrants that must or may require settlement by issuing a variable number of shares. Under ASC 815, warrants are considered liabilities if contracts require or may require the issuer to net settle the contract for cash. Such derivatives are recorded as a liability at fair value, irrespective of the likelihood of the transaction occurring that triggers the net cash settlement feature.

 

After all relevant assessments, the Company concludes whether the warrants are classified as liability or equity. Liability classified warrants require fair value accounting at issuance and subsequent to initial issuance with all changes in fair value after the issuance date recorded in the statements of operations and comprehensive loss. Equity classified warrants only require fair value accounting at issuance with no changes recognized subsequent to the issuance date.

 

The Company determined the warrants are freestanding instruments which do not meet the characteristics of a liability and therefore are classified as equity.

 

3.14 Provisions

 

Provisions are recognized when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) that has arisen as a result of a past event and it is probable that a future outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, provided that a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. Provisions are measured at the present value of the expenditures expected to be required to settle the obligation using a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risk specific to the obligation. The increase in the provision due to passage of time is recognized as interest expense.

 

3.15 Financial instruments

 

Recognition and initial measurement

 

Financial assets and financial liabilities, including derivatives, are recognized when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of a financial instrument or non-financial derivative contract. All financial instruments are measured at fair value on initial recognition. Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issuance of financial assets and financial liabilities, other than financial assets and financial liabilities classified as FVTPL (as defined below), are added to or deducted from the fair value on initial recognition. Transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition of financial assets or financial liabilities classified as FVTPL are recognized immediately in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

Classification and subsequent measurement

 

The Company classifies financial assets, at the time of initial recognition, according to the Company’s business model for managing the financial assets and the contractual terms of the cash flows. Financial assets are classified in the following measurement categories:

For the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 and 2020

 

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.16 Financial instruments (continued)

 

a) amortized cost (“AC”);

 

b) fair value through profit or loss (“FVTPL”); and

 

c) fair value through other comprehensive income (“FVTOCI”).

 

Financial assets are subsequently measured at amortized cost if both the following conditions are met and they are not designated as FVTPL: a) the financial asset is held within a business model whose objective is to hold financial assets to collect contractual cash flows; and b) the contractual terms of the financial asset give rise on specified dates to cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding.

 

These assets are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method, less any impairment, with gains and losses recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss in the period that the asset is derecognized or impaired. All financial assets not classified as amortized cost as described above are measured at FVTPL or FVTOCI depending on the business model and cash flow characteristics. The Company has no financial assets measured at FVTOCI.

 

Financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method with gains and losses recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss in the period that the liability is derecognized, except for financial liabilities classified as FVTPL.

 

Refer to Note 18 for the classification and fair value (“FV”) level of financial instruments.

 

Impairment of financial instruments – Expected credit losses (“ECL”)

 

For all financial assets recorded at amortized cost, the Company applies the simplified approach to provide expected credit losses, which requires the use of the lifetime expected loss provision for all accounts receivable based on the Company’s historical default rates over the expected life of the accounts receivable and is adjusted for forward-looking estimates. The methodologies and assumptions, including, but not limited to, any forecasts of future economic conditions, credit ratings, and macro-economic factors, are reviewed regularly.

 

All individually significant loans receivable are assessed for impairment. All individually significant loans receivable found not to be specifically impaired are then collectively assessed for impairment. Loans receivables not individually significant are collectively assessed for impairment by grouping together loans receivable with similar risk characteristics.

 

ECL are calculated as the product of the probability of default, exposure at default, and loss given default over the remaining expected life of the receivables. The Company assesses all information available, including past due status, credit ratings, the existence of third-party insurance, and forward-looking macro-economic factors in the measurement of the ECLs associated with its assets carried at amortized cost. No ECL has been recorded by the Company as all receivables are expected to be collected.

3.16 Financial instruments (continued)

 

Derecognition

 

The Company derecognizes financial assets only when the contractual rights to cash flows from the financial assets expire, or when it transfers the financial assets and substantially all of the associated risks and rewards of ownership to another entity. Gains and losses on derecognition are recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

The Company derecognizes financial liabilities only when its obligations under the financial liabilities are discharged, cancelled, or expired. Generally, the difference between the carrying amount of the financial liability derecognized and the consideration paid and payable, including any non-cash assets transferred or liabilities assumed, is recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

3.17 Foreign currency transactions

 

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions or valuation where items are re-measured. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognized in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

The results and financial position of an entity that has a functional currency different from the presentation currency is translated into the presentation currency as follows:

 

assets and liabilities for each balance sheet presented are translated at the closing rate at the date of the balance sheet; and

 

income and expenses for each statement of operations and comprehensive loss are translated at average exchange rates (unless this average is not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates prevailing on the transaction dates, in which case income and expenses are translated as the rate on the dates of the transactions).

 

Effect of translation differences are accumulated and presented as a component of equity under accumulated other comprehensive income.

 

3.18 Taxation

 

The current income tax expense is based on taxable income for the period. Income tax payable is based on the income tax expense from the current and prior periods that has not been remitted. Taxable income differs from “Loss before income tax” as reported in the interim statements of operations and comprehensive loss because of items of income or expenses that are taxable or deductible in other periods and items that are never taxable or deductible. Current income tax represents the expected income taxes recoverable (or payable) on taxable income for the period using income tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the end of the reporting period and factors in any adjustments arising from prior periods.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

3.18 Taxation (continued)

 

As the Company operates in the cannabis industry, it is subject to the limits of Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 280E under which the Company is only allowed to deduct expenses included as cost of goods sold. This results in permanent book/tax differences for ordinary and necessary business expenses deemed non-allowable under IRC Section 280E. Therefore, the effective tax rate can be highly variable and may not necessarily correlate with pre-tax income or loss.

 

Deferred taxes are accounted for using the liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities in the interim financial statements and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantively enacted tax rates in effect for the period in which those differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

 

The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in net loss in the period that includes the substantive enactment date. A deferred tax asset is recognized initially when it is probable that future taxable income will be sufficient to use the related tax benefits and may be subsequently reduced, if necessary, to the extent that it is no longer probable that future taxable profits will be available. A deferred tax expense or benefit is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income or otherwise directly in equity to the extent that it relates to items that are recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income or directly in equity in the same or a different period.

 

Provisions for taxes are made using the best estimate of the amount expected to be paid based on a qualitative assessment of all relevant factors. The Company reviews the adequacy of these provisions at the end of the reporting period. However, it is possible that at some future date an additional liability could result from audits by taxing authorities. Where the final outcome of these tax related matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will affect the tax provisions in the period in which such determination is made.

 

3.19 Significant accounting judgments and estimates

 

The application of the Company’s accounting policies requires management to use estimates and judgments that can have a significant effect on the revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities recognized, and disclosures made in the interim financial statements.

 

Management’s best estimates concerning the future are based on the facts and circumstances available at the time estimates are made. Management uses historical experience, general economic conditions, and assumptions regarding probable future outcomes as the basis for determining estimates. Estimates and their underlying assumptions are reviewed periodically, and the effects of any changes are recognized at that time. Actual results could differ from the estimates used.

 

The global pandemic outbreak of the novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) has resulted in governments worldwide enacting emergency measures to combat the spread of the virus. These measures, which include the implementation of travel bans, store closures, self-imposed quarantine periods and social distancing, may cause material disruption to businesses globally resulting in an economic slowdown. COVID-19 has cast uncertainty on the assumptions used by management in making its judgments and estimates.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.19 Significant accounting judgments and estimates (continued)

 

The following areas require management’s critical estimates and judgments:

 

(a) Business combination

 

A business combination is a transaction or event in which an acquirer obtains control of one or more businesses and is accounted for using the acquisition method. The total consideration paid for the acquisition is the aggregate of the fair values of assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and equity instruments issued in exchange for control of the acquiree at the acquisition date. The acquisition date is the date when the Company obtains control of the acquiree.

 

Contingent consideration is measured at its acquisition date fair value and is included as part of the consideration transferred in a business combination, subject to the applicable terms and conditions.

 

Contingent consideration that is classified as equity is not remeasured at subsequent reporting dates and its subsequent settlement is accounted for within equity. Contingent consideration that is classified as a liability is remeasured at subsequent reporting dates in accordance with the criteria and guidance provided under ASC 450 – Contingencies.

 

Based on the facts and circumstances that existed at the acquisition date, management will perform a valuation analysis to allocate the purchase price based on the fair values of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date. Management has one year from the acquisition date to confirm and finalize the facts and circumstances that support the finalized fair value analysis and related purchase price allocation. Until such time, these values are provisionally reported and are subject to change. Changes to fair values and allocations are retrospectively adjusted in subsequent periods.

 

In determining the fair value of all identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed, the most significant estimates generally relate to contingent consideration and intangible assets. Management exercises judgment in estimating the probability and timing of when earn-outs are expected to be achieved, which is used as the basis for estimating fair value. Identified intangible assets are fair valued using appropriate valuation techniques which are generally based on a forecast of the total expected future net cash flows of the acquiree. Valuations are highly dependent on the inputs used and assumptions made by management regarding the future performance of these assets and any changes in the discount rate applied.

 

Judgment is applied in determining whether an acquisition is a business combination or an asset acquisition by considering the nature of the assets acquired and the processes applied to those assets, or if the integrated set of assets and activities is capable of being conducted and managed for the purpose of providing a return to investors or other owners.

 

(b) Inventory

 

In calculating the value of inventory, management is required to make a number of estimates, including estimating the stage of growth of the cannabis up to the point of harvest, expected yields for the cannabis plants, harvesting costs, net realizable value, selling costs, average or expected selling prices, and impairment factors. In calculating final inventory values, management compares the inventory costs to estimated net realizable value as well as investigates slow moving inventory, if applicable. The estimates are judgmental in nature and are made at a point in time, using available information, such as expected business plans and expected market conditions. Periodic reviews are performed on the inventory balance with the changes in inventory reserves reflected in cost of goods sold.

3.            SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.19 Significant accounting judgments and estimates (continued)

 

(c) Estimated useful lives and depreciation of PPE

 

Depreciation of PPE is dependent upon estimates of useful lives, which are determined through the exercise of judgments. The assessment of any impairment of these assets is dependent upon estimates of recoverable amounts that take into account factors such as economic and market conditions and the useful lives of assets.

 

(d) Valuation, estimated life and impairment of intangible assets

 

Management uses significant judgment in estimating the useful lives and impairment. Intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are not subject to amortization and are tested annually for impairment, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that they might be impaired. Impairment tests rely on judgments and estimates related to growth rates, discount rates, and estimated margins.

 

(e) Goodwill impairment

 

Goodwill is tested for impairment annually and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of goodwill may have been impaired. In order to determine that the value of goodwill may have been impaired, the Company performs a qualitative assessment to determine that it was more-likely-than-not if the reporting unit’s carrying value is less than the fair value, indicating the potential for goodwill impairment. A number of factors, including historical results, business plans, forecasts, and market data are used to determine the fair value of the reporting unit. Changes in the conditions for these judgments and estimates can significantly affect the assessed value of goodwill.

 

(f) Leases

 

Each capitalized lease is evaluated to determine if the Company would exercise any of the renewal options offered. Several material factors are considered in determining if the renewal options would be exercised, such as length of the renewal, renewal rate, and ability to transfer locations. When measuring lease liabilities, the Company used discounted lease payments using a weighted-average rate in the range of 9.8% to 15.0% per annum. The weighted-average rate is based on the internal borrowing rate, which relies on judgments and estimates.

 

(g) Provisions and contingent liabilities

 

When the Company is more likely than not to incur an outflow of resources to settle an obligation and the amount can be reasonably estimated, a contingent liability is recorded. The contingent liability is recorded at management’s best estimates of the expenditure required to settle the obligation at period end, discounted to the present value, if material.

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

3.19 Significant accounting judgments and estimates (continued)

 

(h) Financial instruments

 

To determine the fair value of financial instruments, the Company develops assumptions and selects certain methods to perform the fair value calculations. Various methods considered include but are not limited to: (a) assigning the value attributed to the transaction at the time of origination; (b) re-measuring the instrument if it requires concurrent fair value measurement; and (c) valuing the instrument at the issuance value less any amortized costs. As judgment is a factor in determining the value and selecting a method, as well as the inherent uncertainty in estimating the fair value, the valuation estimates may be different.

 

Application of the option pricing model requires estimates in expected dividend yields, expected volatility in the underlying assets, and the expected life of the financial instruments. These estimates may ultimately be different from amounts subsequently realized, resulting in an overstatement or understatement of net loss and comprehensive loss.

 

(i) Expected credit loss

 

Management determines ECL by evaluating individual receivable balances and considering customers’ financial condition and current economic conditions. Accounts receivable are written off when deemed uncollectible. Recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off are recorded as income when received. All receivables are expected to be collected within one year of the period end.

 

3.20 Change in accounting standards

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12 Topic 740 - Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which eliminates certain exceptions related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. It also clarifies and simplifies other aspects of the accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods therein. The Company is evaluating the adoption date and impact, if any, adoption will have on its interim financial statements.

 

In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01 Topic 321 - Investments - Equity Securities, Topic 323 - Investments - Equity Method and Joint Ventures, and Topic 815 - Derivatives and Hedging (collectively “ASU 2020-01”), which is intended to clarify the interaction of the accounting for equity securities under Topic 321 and investments accounted for under the equity method of accounting in Topic 323 and the accounting for certain forward contracts and purchased options accounted for under Topic 815. The Company is evaluating the adoption date and impact, if any, adoption will have on its interim financial statements.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06 Subtopic 470-20 - Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options and Subtopic 815-40 Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity: Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, to improve financial reporting associated with accounting for convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the adoption date and impact, if any, adoption will have on its interim financial statements.

4. BUSINESS COMBINATIONS AND ASSET ACQUISITIONS

 

Each of the acquisitions are subject to specific terms relating to the satisfaction of the purchase price by the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, and incorporates payments in cash, shares, and debt as well as certain contingent considerations. The shares issued as consideration are either Subordinate Shares or non-voting exchangeable shares of the Company’s subsidiaries (“Exchangeable Shares”) that are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis into an equal number of Subordinate Shares of the Company. The Company treats the Exchangeable Shares as options with a value equal to a share of Subordinate Shares, which represents the holder’s claim on the equity of the Company. The Company has presented these Exchangeable Shares as a part of shareholders’ equity within these interim financial statements due to (i) the fact that they are economically equivalent to the Company’s publicly traded Subordinate Shares (ii) the holders of the Exchangeable Shares are subject to restrictions on transfer under United States securities laws, but may dispose of the Exchangeable Shares without such restriction by exchanging them for Subordinate Shares of the Company. Changes in these assumptions would affect the presentation of the Exchangeable Shares from shareholders’ equity to non-controlling interests; however, there would be no impact on loss per share.

 

The goodwill recognized on acquisitions is attributable mainly to the expected future growth potential and expanded customer base arising as a result of the completion of the respective acquisition. Goodwill has been allocated to the reporting units corresponding to the states of the acquired businesses. None of the goodwill is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. For further analysis on goodwill relating to business combinations, see Note 7. All the acquisitions noted below were accounted for in accordance with ASC 805.

The details of the purchase consideration consist of cash, debt, Subordinate Shares, Exchangeable Shares, contingent consideration, purchase consideration payable, and replacement options issued.

 

Final valuations of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed are not yet complete due to the inherent complexity associated with valuations and the short period of time between the acquisition date and the period end. Therefore, the purchase price allocation is preliminary and subject to adjustment on completion of the valuation process and analysis of resulting tax effects. During the quarter, the Company revised the previously disclosed provisional amounts reflected in the interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Further changes may still be required as management works to finalize the valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Management will finalize the accounting for the acquisitions no later than one year from the date of the respective acquisition dates. Differences between these provisional estimates and the final acquisition accounting may occur and these differences could have a material impact.

 

The fair value of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date are as follows:

Fair Value Considerations

 

The consideration has been allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition.
