Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements present the consolidated financial position and operations of Jushi Holdings Inc. and its subsidiaries and entities over which the Company has control, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and footnotes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, of a normal recurring nature, that are necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the periods, and at the dates, presented. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full year.
These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021, which are included in the Company’s S-1, and was also filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (“SEDAR”) on November 21, 2022. Consolidated balance sheet information as of December 31, 2021 presented herein is derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021.
These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. GAAP requires an entity to look forward 12 months from the date the financial statements are issued, (the “look-forward” period) when assessing whether the going concern assumption can be used. The going concern assumption contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.
As reflected in these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred losses from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, and has an accumulated deficit of $304,805 as of September 30, 2022. As discussed in Note 10 - Debt, the Company’s 10% senior notes (the “Senior Notes”), which as of September 30, 2022 had an aggregate principal amount outstanding of $74,935, mature on January 15, 2023, and the Acquisition Facility, which as of September 30, 2022 had an outstanding balance of $65,000 (refer to Note 10 - Debt), required the Company to maintain certain covenants which the Company may not have been in compliance with if the
Swiss courts accepted Jushi Europe’s petition for bankruptcy (refer to Note 16 - Non-Controlling Interests). Prior to the amendment with the lender of the Acquisition Facility, the Company was also projected to violate certain financial covenants. In April 2022, the Company entered into an amendment with the lender of the Acquisition Facility, which included a waiver related to Jushi Europe’s bankruptcy and a change to the terms of the Total Leverage Ratio, as defined in the Acquisition Facility agreement, and deferred the commencement date of leverage testing under the Acquisition Facility to the quarter ending March 31, 2023. Additionally, the overall slowdown in the cannabis industry during 2022 has resulted in lower forecasted earnings for the Company during the look-forward period. The look-forward period also contemplates favorable regulatory changes in certain states in which the Company operates. The Company is at risk of not meeting its forecasted earnings and as a result may not be in compliance with certain financial covenants under the Acquisition Facility, as amended, during the look-forward period. As a result, the Company has classified the outstanding balance of $65,000 under the Acquisition Facility as of September 30, 2022 as a current liability. These conditions raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern during the look-forward period.
The Company is pursuing strategies to obtain the required additional funding primarily to fund the Senior Notes and future operations. These strategies may include, but are not limited to: (i) ongoing efforts with various lenders to refinance the Senior Notes (refer to Note 23 - Subsequent Events for updates on the refinancing); (ii) renegotiating the financial covenants contained in the Acquisition Facility, including the removal of the Total Leverage Ratio requirement; (iii) deferral of certain expenditures, including capital projects, and reallocation of funds for debt repayment, if the need arises; and (iv) obtaining alternative sources of financing, including debt financing through secured borrowings and equity financing through a base shelf prospectus, which allows the Company to offer up to C$500,000 in securities in Canada through the end of 2023. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to refinance the Senior Notes, renegotiate the financial covenants under the Acquisition Facility, as amended, generate positive results from operations, or obtain additional liquidity when needed or under acceptable terms, if at all.
Correction of Errors in Previously Issued Financial Statements
In November 2022, the Company identified an error in the appraised value of the business licenses acquired in connection with the acquisition of Nature’s Remedy in September 2021, which was used in the purchase price allocation (Refer to Note 7 - Acquisitions for additional information). The appraised value of the business licenses was determined with the assistance of a third-party valuation firm, which used an . The impact of the error was a $10,000 understatement of indefinite-lived intangible assets - license, a $7,092 overstatement of goodwill, and a $2,908 understatement of income tax liabilities – non-current on the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021, unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.
The Company revised its condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021, March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022 as summarized in the table below:
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 in the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021, which is included in the Company’s S-1, and was also filed on SEDAR. There have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company’s financial condition and results of operations were not materially impacted by COVID-19. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company’s future results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with certainty, including possible future outbreaks of new strains of the virus and governmental and consumer responses to such future developments.
Emerging Growth Company
As an emerging growth company (“EGC”), the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”) allows the Company to delay adoption of new or revised accounting pronouncements applicable to public companies until such pronouncements are applicable to private companies. The Company has elected to use this extended transition period under the JOBS Act until such time the Company is no longer considered to be an EGC. The adoption dates discussed below reflect this election.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Adoption of New Accounting Standards
In January 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-04, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment (ASU 2017-04). The FASB issued guidance eliminates the performance of Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. In performing its annual or interim impairment testing, an entity will instead compare the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognize any impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. Additionally, an entity should consider income tax effects from any tax-deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss. The amendments in this ASU are effective for the Company for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 with early adoption permitted, as amended by ASU 2019-10, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842) and ASU 2021-03, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350).
The Company early adopted ASU 2017-04 in 2022. See Note 8 - Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets for additional information.
In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options. The FASB issued guidance to clarify and reduce diversity in an issuer’s accounting for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options (for example, warrants) that remain equity classified after modification or exchange. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2021. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Accounting Standards Issued But Not Yet Adopted
In June 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06 Debt-Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, which simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. This ASU also removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception and simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2023, although early adoption is permitted. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of this new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers. The FASB issued guidance requires that an entity (acquirer) recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with Topic 606. At the acquisition date, an acquirer should account for the related revenue contracts in accordance with Topic 606 as if it had originated the contracts. To achieve this, an acquirer may assess how the acquiree applied Topic 606 to determine what to record for the acquired revenue contracts. Generally, this should result in an acquirer recognizing and measuring the acquired contract assets and contract liabilities consistent with how they were recognized and measured in the acquiree’s financial statements (if the acquiree prepared financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles). The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2023, although early adoption is permitted. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of this new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
In June 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-03, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions. The FASB issued guidance clarifies that a contractual restriction on the sale of an equity security is not considered part of the unit of account of the equity security and, therefore, is not considered in measuring fair value. The amendments also clarify that an entity cannot, as a separate unit of account, recognize and measure a contractual sale restriction. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2023, although early adoption is permitted. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of this new guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
