_________________________

1Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure used by management that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  Management defines adjusted EBITDA as loss and comprehensive loss from operations, as reported, before finance and transaction costs, tax, depreciation, and amortization, and adjusted for removing share-based payments, fair value adjustment on sale of inventory, fair value adjustment on biological assets and other non-cash items including impairment losses. Management believes this measure provides useful information as it is a commonly used measure in the capital markets to approximate operating performance on an adjusted basis as described above. See reconciliation of "Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS measure)" below.

"We are extremely pleased with our continued quarter over quarter revenue growth and positive adjusted EBITDA. Our strong fourth quarter results reflect the strength and continued growth of our high-margin medical platform and the success of our new adult-use SKUs in recreational markets across Canada," commented Chris Churchill-Smith, CEO of Canada House. "The steps we have taken to date to integrate with MTL Cannabis have been very successful and we expect our revenue growth and financial performance to continue on its current trajectory as we further align our operations under one cohesive strategy."
