Management Commentary

Grant Froese, CEO of Harvest One, said, "We are very pleased with our continued progress throughout the quarter. United Greeneries maintained strong recreational sales as we continue to build out capacity in our Mission Road and Lucky Lake facilities. Satipharm commenced selling our CBD Gelpell® capsules online in the UK and Europe. Dream Water posted solid revenues and continues to add key accounts to its already extensive retail distribution network. The initial load ins from these new accounts will be reflected in our fiscal Q4 revenues."

Mr. Froese continued, "Harvest One's third quarter financial results were impacted by the prior quarter's initial load ins in preparation for the legalization of recreational cannabis consumption. During the third quarter, we achieved increasing harvests as we continue to enhance existing facilities and build out new capacity. In preparation for the roll out of value-added products later this year, we also allocated a portion of our inventory accordingly for extraction and future R&D. The impact of these value-added products will be reflected in the financial results in future quarters. Most importantly, we continue to execute on our strategy of being a leading health, wellness, and self-care company."

Outlook

United Greeneries continues to expand its indoor growing capacity to meet our target of 20,000 kg annually. This additional capacity, when online, will increase the Company's supply in order to meet existing customer demand for its premium-quality craft indoor grown flower. The Company plans to reach its targeted 20,000 kg annual capacity through: (1) completion of our Lucky Lake Facility coming online in the fourth quarter of calendar 2019; (2) the Mission Road Facility modular expansion, also scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of calendar 2019; and (3) entering into offtake agreements for the remaining capacity.

As a component of the Company's product development strategy, we will conduct R&D for the next phase of legalization and support the expansion of our product lines including additional health and wellness products, beverages, vape pens, and nutraceuticals using cannabis oil derivative products. Furthermore, the investment in the Greenbelt greenhouse and its 42,000 square foot headhouse provides an ideal location for the Company to add additional capacity to support its extraction and processing strategy.

In the third quarter of calendar 2019 Satipharm expects to expand its product offering with the introduction of new cannabis-infused medical and nutraceutical products currently under formulation. Dream Water is also formulating a CBD-infused version of its product line which it intends to launch throughout its distribution channels in regulated markets in Canada and the US as regulations permit.
