Management Commentary

“In fiscal 2023, Delivra Health achieved positive Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the first time in the Company’s history. This is a commitment we made to our shareholders and other stakeholders at the beginning of the year, and we are delighted to have achieved this milestone,” said Gord Davey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delivra Health. “We kept our promise to shareholders, capital markets partners and our internal team, by remaining focused on the execution of customer-specific programs, optimizing e-commerce platforms, launching innovation products and improving distribution across several markets. In the coming year, we expect to continue to increase our revenues and profitability through a combined focus on Canada, USA, international and e-commerce markets.”

Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue: The Company reported total net revenue of $9,791 in fiscal 2023 compared to $8,139 in the twelve months ended June 30, 2022 (“fiscal 2022”) from continued operations. This 20% increase in net revenue is driven by higher net sales in the USA.
  • Gross profit and gross profit margin: The Company reported gross profit of $4,823 and a 49% gross profit margin in fiscal 2023 compared to $2,604 and a 32% gross profit margin in fiscal 2022. This increase is attributed to lower sales fees and lower indirect cost of sales incurred relative to the increase in sales and a reduction in financial inventory write-downs.
  • Expenses including SG&A and excluding non-cash items: The Company reported expenses of $4,704 in fiscal 2023 compared to $6,145 in fiscal 2022, representing a $1,441 or 23% reduction for the year. The reduction is driven by a decrease in SG&A expenses due to operational changes and cost reductions.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1): The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $517 in fiscal 2023 compared to $(2,765) in fiscal 2022, representing a $3,282 or 119% year over year improvement. This reduction is driven by higher net sales, a higher gross margin, and an overall reduction in expenses, as noted above.

Non-IFRS Measures, Reconciliation and Discussion

This press release contains references to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of the Company’s loss from operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization and adjusted for share-based compensation, common shares issued for services, fair value effects of accounting for biological assets and inventories, asset impairment and write-downs, and other non-cash items, and is a non-IFRS measure.

This measure can be used to analyze and compare profitability among companies and industries, as it eliminates the effects of financing and capital expenditures. It is often used in valuation ratios and can be compared to enterprise value and revenue. This measure does not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

There are no comparable IFRS financial measures presented in Delivra Health’s financial statements. Reconciliations of the supplemental non-IFRS measure are presented in the Company’s management discussion and analysis for fiscal 2023. This non-IFRS financial measure is presented because management has evaluated the financial results both including and excluding the adjusted items and believes that the non-IFRS financial measure presented provides additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of the business. The Company believes that the supplemental measure provides information which is useful to shareholders and investors in understanding the Company’s performance and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers.

The non-IFRS financial measure should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for, or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with the IFRS financial measures presented in the Company’s financial statements. For more information, please see “Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)” and “Non-IFRS Measures” in the Company’s management discussion and analysis for fiscal 2023, which is available under the Company’s SEDAR+ profile on


  1. This is a non-IFRS reporting measure. For a reconciliation of this measure to the nearest IFRS measure, see “Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)” and “Non-IFRS Measures” in the Company’s management discussion and analysis for fiscal 2023.
