“This quarter saw continued expansion as we completed construction and opened two new dispensaries at the end of the quarter,” stated Michael Mills, CEO of BaM. “Our focus on streamlined, debt-free operations and achieving milestones continues to expand our revenues across multiple states in our cultivation, manufacturing and retail operations. We are proud to add Her Highness and Shoogies brands to our production operations as we continue to add manufacturing growth alongside our brands. Our Q3 2020 quarter (February 1, 2020 to April 30, 2020) aligned closely with COVID-19 closures of Nevada casinos and dispensaries which commenced in early March and had a significant impact on cannabis sales in Nevada due to reduced visitor numbers and dispensary access. As Nevada dispensaries opened for walk-in customers in early May we saw increased sales across our product offerings. Our strategy of growth in multiple states has reduced our exposure to single market events and our (unaudited) May system-wide managed revenues* and net income set a new record for Body and Mind. I believe that as we consolidate revenues, we will show significant top line revenue and EBITDA growth. I am extremely proud of our entire team as they have grown our operations, brand and customer base during this incredibly challenging business environment.”
