Commentary on Results

Board of Directors Update for Grey Wolf

In connection with the completion of the qualifying transaction, the Company is also announcing (i) the resignation of Jolyon Burton, and (ii) the appointment of Jill Angevine and Diane Bourassa to Grey Wolf's Board of Directors as independent directors.

Ms. Angevine is a finance professional with more than 25 years of experience in the investment management industry including portfolio management, capital markets and equity research. She currently serves as President and CEO of Brownstone Asset Management, a private investment firm, and holds non-executive directorships at additional public companies in the energy and mining sectors. Ms. Angevine holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Calgary and has earned the Chartered Public Accountant (CPA, CA), the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), and the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD.D) designations.

Ms. Bourassa is a visionary business leader with extensive operational and financial expertise. Throughout her 30-year career, Ms. Bourassa succeeded in developing highly competitive and performing teams.

Ms. Bourassa worked for 14 years in the Canadian subsidiary of Vetoquinol S.A. Her leadership as General Manager of Vetoquinol Canada from 2011 to 2021 propelled Vetoquinol into the top 5 animal health pharmaceutical companies in Canada. Ms. Bourassa was a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Animal Health Institute for a period of 10 years, where she held various positions, including Chair of the Board of Directors from 2015 to 2016.

"I want to thank Jolyon for his meaningful contributions to Grey Wolf since joining the board in 2017," said Shawn Aspden, Chair of Grey Wolf. "Jolyon has been an instrumental partner in building Grey Wolf and will remain a key supporter as a partner in the company's largest shareholder."

We are delighted to have Jill and Diane join our Board of Directors," said Angela Cechetto, CEO. "The experience they bring will be instrumental in contributing to our growth as we build a diversified animal health company. We look forward to both Jill and Diane's insights and support as Grey Wolf enters this exciting new phase of its growth."

1Non-IFRS Measures

Management uses both IFRS and Non-IFRS Measures to assess the financial and operating performance of the Company's operations. These Non-IFRS Measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Non-IFRS Measures referenced in this press release includes Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest and accretion expense, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, changes in fair value of embedded derivatives, foreign exchange gains or losses, change in fair value of contingent consideration, other income, and financing and special transaction costs (including, for greater certainty, fees related to the qualifying transaction and the acquisition of Trutina Pharmacy Inc.). The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA as a key metric in assessing business performance and an important measure of operating performance and cash flow, providing useful information to investors and analysts.

The following table provides a summary of the differences between GWAH's consolidated IFRS and Non-IFRS financial measures, which are reconciled below:
