Management Commentary

"We are pleased to report revenues of $5.5 million, as well as operational improvements in gross profit and positive adjusted EBITDA compared to the same period last year. As a non-dispensary house brand, AMA products have strong market presence in several categories and consistently rank among the top 5 brands sold in Nevada. Our ability to offer a large variety of quality cannabis products with assured consistency and that meet changing consumer demands has made AMA a sought-after brand", said Mr. Paul Rosen, Chairman and CEO of the Company.

Q1 2024 Consolidating Operating Highlights

Revenues

During Q1 2024, the Company recorded revenues of $5.5 million, an 11% increase from $5.0 million for Q1 2023. The strong performance is attributed to the improvements to the cultivation facility that were completed during Q4 2023.

Gross Profit

For the three-month period ended October 31, 2023, gross profit was $3.9 million before fair market adjustments. Gross profit, after fair market adjustments, was $1.7 million for Q1 2024, compared to $0.5 million during the same period in 2023.

Expenses

During the reporting period, expenses were $2.1 million compared to $1.2 million for Q1 2023. The increase in expenses was primarily due to prior period receiving payroll tax refunds from the IRS of $0.5 million and recovery of a fair value adjustment related to Infused MFG inventory of $0.4 million.

Net Loss

For Q1 2024, net loss and adjusted EBITDA were a loss of $0.4 million and an income of $0.1 million, respectively, compared to a loss of $1.2 million and an income of $30,967, respectively, for Q1 2023.

Convertible Debenture Update

The Company also announces the extinguishment upon maturity, of the principal debt of its 10% Senior Unsecured Convertible Debentures Due December 31, 2023 (the "Historical Debentures"), excluding interest in arrears, through the issuance of a new 10% unsecured convertible debenture (the "New Debenture"), as per a recently approved resolution by debenture holders. With a two-year maturity, the New Debenture will be convertible into units at a price of $0.05 per unit. Each unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one share purchase warrant. Each share purchase warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.05 for a period of five years from the date of issuance of the New Debenture, subject to certain acceleration provisions. Mr. Rosen added, "We are encouraged by our steady progress towards profitability and are hopeful and optimistic that over the two-year period, overall market conditions will improve."

The distribution of the New Debentures will be conducted pursuant to the Company's Canadian base shelf prospectus dated November 17, 2022 (the "Base Shelf Prospectus"). A prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement") relating to the distribution will be filed in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. The Base Shelf Prospectus is available, and the Prospectus Supplement will be available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Holders of record of Historical Debentures on December 29, 2023, being the last business day prior to the maturity of the Historical Debentures will exchange their Historical Debentures for New Debentures, except in jurisdictions where the New Debentures may not be distributed. A letter of transmittal will be sent by the trustee for the Historical Debentures, Odyssey Trust Company, to the registered debenture holders providing instructions to surrender the certificates evidencing the Historical Debentures for replacement certificates representing the New Debentures.

Accrued and unpaid interest due under the Historical Debentures of approximately $1,294,000 will be paid in common shares of the Company, as permitted in accordance with their terms, as a price of $0.05 per share resulting in the issuance of an aggregate of 25,880,000 shares. The Company anticipates that the settlement of the Debentures would occur upon or shortly following the Maturity Date, subject to Canadian Securities Exchange approval.Further details of the amendments are contained in the Management Information Circular filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR available www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.1933industries.com/investors/eom-materials
