It is anticipated that the Company will hold up to a 20% carried interest in the CBD Business following completion of the CBD Transaction.
The sale of the CBD business comes on the same day the Company reported its second quarter fiscal 2020 results; while revenues for the quarter were $21.1 million, a sequential increase of 66% over the prior quarter, the Company reported a whopping $34.8 million loss for the quarter. Also on Monday Green Growth confirmed it has cut a number of jobs ahead of its delaying second-quarter earnings call by two days.

The sale of the CBD business is significant as it accounted for over 40% of CGB sales last year; ceoPeter Horvath commented: “While we are excited by the consumer demand signals we saw in the CBD Business during the quarter ending December 28, 2019, and we remain confident in its future potential, the CBD Business remains in its nascency” said Peter Horvath, Chief Executive Officer of GGB. “With high-potential in the future comes material overhead costs and other obligations in the near term. These near-term overhead costs and other obligations, together with constraints on liquidity, have posed significant challenges that have hindered us from growing the CBD Business to its full-potential. At the same time, our MSO Segment continues to generate positive EBITDA despite constraints on our ability to fully execute our MSO business plan due, in part, to previously disclosed legal challenges in Nevada,” added Horvath. “In light of these factors, we have determined it necessary and appropriate to sell the CBD Business and focus on executing our MSO business plan. The board has also formed a special committee to commence a strategic review, which will include consideration of other cost savings measures, designed to position the Company on a pathway to achieve financial stability and ultimately a platform through which we can achieve sustainable profitability and growth. We are committed to significantly reducing our overall operating costs and extending our cash runway while better positioning the Company to refinance its debt and raise additional financing in the future.”
