Aurora Cannabis Inc. late Thursday said that Chief Executive Terry Booth is retiring amid “sweeping changes” to the Canadian accredited manufacturer, the current bud business to reduce costs amid a money crunch in the industry.
The business said that it has eliminated roughly 500 full-time employees’ positions, or approximately 17 percent to 18 percent of its workforce — Aurora said in September it’d 2,779 workers at the end of June 2019, and had climbed to 3,000 employees into the collapse. Aurora said it would bring funding expenses under C$ 100M for 2020, also intends to record write-downs of C$ 740M into C$ 775M along with costs of C$ 190M into C$ 225M.
Aurora detailed preliminary 2020 outcomes, saying it anticipates cannabis earnings between C$ 66M and C$ 62M net of excise taxes, for the quarter.
Concerning the fees and write-downs, Aurora said that thanks to slower growth for marijuana businesses and “present cannabis market conditions” it assessed “all company operations and concluded that specific resources and goodwill values as at Dec. 31, 2019 transcend present fair-market valuations.”
“After these noncash charges, Aurora hopes to stay compliant with its revised complete debt-to-equity covenant going forward,” it said.
Aurora Chief Financial Officer Glen Ibbott said in the announcement that the resources impaired are mostly in South America and Denmark, along with the organization’s “core Canadian cannabis resources aren’t affected by these noncash asset impairment charges.”
The business said it would concentrate on “core areas” like the Canadian consumer marketplace, the Canadian medical marijuana marketplace, based global medical markets, along with U.S. marketplace initiatives. That announcement and the write-downs imply that Aurora will mostly give up on global aspirations beyond the U.S.
“We think that the long-term prospects for Aurora stays very persuasive, despite having a slower-than-anticipated speed of business growth in the near-term,” Ibbott said. “We also consider our way of rationalizing the organization and conservatively enhancing our balance sheet rankings Aurora in a more secure place for sustainable expansion moving forward.”
