Management Commentary
"In Q2, we continued to achieve strong results within our Medical Cannabis segment, reporting 47% sequential growth and margins of over 85% for the fourth consecutive quarter. With revenues increasing across all markets, our medical cannabis segment contributed 29% of revenues and 70% of gross profits, showcasing how our medical cannabis business can fundamentally shift margin profiles as revenues increase," comments Alvaro Torres, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company.
Mr. Torres continues, "In Q2 and subsequently, we achieved a number of very significant milestones. With the start of sales in Brazil in July, our sales presence has expanded to five of our six target markets. In addition, we are making strides toward launching our Zerenia(TM) clinics in Mexico this year, and recently expedited our entry into Mexico by several months with the receipt of a high-THC extract export quota from Colombia. We continue to expand patient access within our core markets, partnering with the Colombia Cancer League and 21 leading medical institutions to deliver 3,000 medical cannabis consultations at no cost to patients. In June, we also opened our first clinic outside of Colombia in Lima, Peru, which is expected to have a positive impact on prescription volumes going forward. Finally, in Europe we expanded our product offerings in both the UK and Germany, and delivered our largest shipment to date, resulting in a significant revenue contribution from Europe during the second quarter."
"With these milestones behind us, we expect to increase sales of medical cannabis products across all markets over the coming 12 months. As we continue to expand our clinic and patient networks, partnerships with insurance providers, and distribution channels, we anticipate that global medical cannabis revenues will reach $1 million per month by Q1 2022. In addition, we anticipate that revenues from Health Services will stabilize at $1 million per month, consistent with levels achieved in March 2021," continued Alvaro Torres.
Q2 2021 operating highlights and subsequent events
-- Medical cannabis revenues increased 47% from the prior quarter, reaching
over $825,000; in total, medical cannabis products contributed 29% of
total revenues and 70% of gross profits.

-- Driven by growth in medical cannabis, the Company achieved a gross profit
margin (before fair market value adjustments) of 37%, or $1.0 million,

Latin America
-- Insurance coverage in Colombia continues to be a catalyst for growth,
with more than 10,600 prescriptions filled in Q2 2021, a 40% increase
from Q1 2021. The percentage of prescriptions issued in Colombia and
covered by insurance also increased from over 40% in Q4 2020 to over 50%
in Q2 2021.

-- Returning medical cannabis patients in Colombia reached nearly 50% in Q2
2021, providing a more stable Medical Cannabis revenue base.

and continued month-over-month growth, Q3 2021 continues to build on Q2
2021 levels.

Colombia, in Lima, Peru, a city of over 10 million and home to a third of
the country.

-- In June 2021, Khiron was awarded high-THC medical cannabis quotas for
exports to Mexico from Colombia.

-- In July 2021, Khiron successfully exported medical cannabis into Brazil

ANVISA. Also, Dr. Eduardo Faveret was appointed Medical Director for

in key cities in Brazil.

-- Khiron recently partnered with the Colombia Cancer League to deliver an
additional 3,000 medical cannabis patient consultations during the month
of June, in collaboration with 21 leading medical institutions in 11
cities throughout Colombia.
-- Q2 2021 sales in the UK and Germany increased significantly, up 475% and
265%, respectively, from the prior quarter, driven by expanded medical
cannabis products lines and increased product availability. As a result,
Europe accounted for over 25% of Q2 medical cannabis sales.

-- In the UK, the Company's medical cannabis e-learning certification,
Khiron Academy, received accreditation for Continuing Professional
Development credits in the UK.

Discussion of Operations for the Three Months Ending June 30, 2021
During the second quarter of 2021, the Company reported revenues of $2.8 million, a 68% increase as compared to Q2 2020 due to normalized clinic operations and the growth of medical cannabis sales. Relative to Q1 2021, second quarter revenues were relatively consistent as a result of a 13% decline in Health Services revenues, offset by a 47% increase in Medical Cannabis Product sales, which reached $825,500 in the quarter, as the Company benefited from significant growth in Europe and a growing patient base in Colombia. While health services were impacted by rising COVID-19 cases and foreign exchange rates during the quarter, clinic revenues are expected to stabilize at $1 million per month, consistent with March 2021 levels.
At $1.0 million, or 37% of revenues, the Company's gross profits benefited from increasing Medical Cannabis Product sales, which offset margin compression within Health Services. Medical cannabis margins remained high at 88% of revenues, while health service margins decreased quarter-over-quarter to 15% of revenues, as a result of geo-political events and a surge of COVID-19 cases in Colombia which impacted clinic volumes and service mix. Q2 2021 health services margins were consistent with prior year levels.
Overall, the Company recorded a net loss of $4.8 million in the second quarter, which compares to a net loss of $5.7 million in the prior year and $5.5 million in the prior quarter. Adjusted EBITDA losses for Q2 2021 were $3.9 million, compared to the prior quarter loss of $4.0 million and prior year loss of $3.9 million.
