Vivien Azer

familiar staples. to wanted dig FX revenues it with volume in you and in there. there covering experienced which that of least some and a simple it’s volumes, like tandem, the as into very guys the large seems usually was just headwinds, I bit of quarter. as So, move revenue cap on a Maybe dynamics we’re your But dig versus directionally, at -- divergence

wondering I’m considerations price mix to there Thank any call out other if you. please. geographic or mix is So

Miguel Martin

Glen?

Glen Ibbott

consumer think what saw bit Viv, a we between I and of was mix a medical. change

the from is consumer we particularly correctable. of something producing European at They you’re see addition saw, pricing, process greater average mix. Our it’s driving there the -- the a with are down our then pricing is so, particularly step But consumer ran in cultivar in in of that impact in problems. looking normally it’s we what a if take Germany into stuff, than medical did are the corrected. there production being as a quarter, few They --

than might at. other just terms think what you’re volume. I that, be kind But as looking So, usual in of business it was of that

impact and consumer get volume pricing. from you average So, lower more that through the on right business

Operator

question proceed the line Our with Sandler. Michael comes from of next with Lavery your question. Please Piper

Michael Lavery

I a your with the -- any Bevo makes there guess as EBITDA. just or radar, on some are EBITDA M&A? be more. And little it? come you’d the your maybe wanted from target, sense add But, considering take just synergies adjacencies on think is strategy situation thinking add your some I any of help obviously advantage to bit is portfolio also The that related greenhouse and particular of to just just and part understand about one are other more expected you of

Miguel Martin

-- mean a so I bit. Yes. try let little unpack that me to

I think we cannabis, M&A, medical global as sort of of pertains to to cannabis. it our medical live the center is play where

And much probably that to of interest as are been us. things that certain so, reason, of not for have others to interest

position our the U.S. Secondly, on

I it’s given going to FDA options the with would think that’s to going longer. a of I’m have belief cannabis validated. strong been if going federal, a that there. It’s And construct is involved. medical our lot take on medical internationally a be to dominance be -- it’s of one it’s the clearly,

So, benefits thought use we’ve management mix the shareholders. of because diamond are of tax pertains and an big Bevo both medical. We other upside their really attracted a the propagator in and and for to some for it you things than support Sky team incredible fair for really between science, find of that the value, maybe as talked certain has out us clever I growth we and a about more what think maybe absolute ability just rough, to think we and us is take was that important synergies and Thrive if the the rec mix, of of U.S. things a what you liked to take the others. you of out has

like continue Michael, think look that. things patient. We’ve to been I So, at we’ll terribly

us they we’re me portable into cannabis. up, other cannabis, fire are pretty to things chase can someone something to of medical my systems, Glen cases place more and made to we’ve balance we’ve is eloquent was that about the the investments sheet, and so As some if have opinion, there. power think that really of world, to is come around the only got them. maybe we like a and it’s are around been I it’s pay lot connect those infrastructure, interest than But to you balance investments others now going things just maybe in out important sheet, The go It’s a science, after strong that which are that around medical starting make patients, dividends. in those proven understandings investments and not

go. we as steady So,

I think, shape. we’re pretty good

terms In level revenues and part, reality SG&A the we is EBITDA current hold from can the margins flat there. the XX, we can and under get if get you of

QX we’ve to reach progress. may type when And so, that. And and be SG&A of we that we’re while consistent a it. would questions, lot around shown with we’ve of I do that by done some we’ve expect said think, something efficiencies, SG&A have to And other going clearly

In a investment market, the significant terms Germany. German in made of we’ve

leading government in working conversations executives relations, and of alcohol, career good spent think regulators. the my He we a whole what is this line. have and Germany. government on might the straight like be both, with never I’ve in things one having tobacco affairs We they’re

I think, both is business, one to leaders pertains the there’s in cannabis know well a medical you of and about it two is the business. enhancements as going as the we’re the to of very in Germany, written lot on you’ve about, and rec things which medical Germany, legalization as secondly, excited

So, rec expect my which will is of that so the color companies how we what and advantages are in to about those earlier, for go and industries their in they needs and medical have three that being be the the in rec, one government is to said compliant understanding timing thoughtful understanding as our of -- this that The license only done why we business have implementation think industry German that a with Germany. produce would stakeholders considered. medical learnings successful is being facilities the from always order in in very is can business, which about companies way. -- be almost I a

more significantly that an there. the be XXX whether is that capacity us But opportunity order than tons tons or clearly, XXX tons three or would of rec in that clearly have. XXX is to Now, number market, service

to more in understand it. Germany, in I follow So, interest the

my for not is what it think respect straight tell it that but going an will thoughtfully. experienced I seen you rec thoughtful think, line, that companies, other this, we move be And business. around a can people a will when, And be and from what recreational key might the is have a Germany. would the companies regulators It for how but medical and we’ve world always of implements in just in clearly then the have time the I to compliant be predict to go from there at business. it’s expectation be in will I can’t I robust cannabis. advantage will Germany markets medical terms cannabis companies beacon tremendous

got Andrew. You it,

business, So, first Bevo, a you on and others. it Bevo is and guys so did tremendous cover did

was I didn’t work fallacy think a when it did to that company. connected It’s in just cannabis previous say another that work. to did that construct work. not it Bevo is combination Bevo

assets. and combining Aurora assets We from non-cannabis cannabis Bevo not with are

So, there’s that.

them And items big They lot business, of Canada America have there is the the that is that both both offshore produced produce significant in North the box they in expand of because contracts, Southeast and to U.S. in many Secondly, business. a of And U.S. in and Asia. are tremendous Asia a now Bevo and Canada for opportunity shipping right costs.

not pretend that be excited that, to And to draw going can it that. so, it. tremendous It’s to from in And it manner. propagation. This we’re done not going resources does have particularly And the run has so not a Aurora orchids in expand successfully is or they excellence that is very capital-light there. continue Aurora opportunities about have would since run to team -- down cash

was those to it, Leo key have folks, it So, over run to those key for there and guys and us Andrew are key thrilled and about that. we

the everybody about upside caught pertains tax cannabis too But Bevo in sell it they combination of quickly deal assets. such lot the Sky, the for listen, a been And CapEx the else order beauty, that’s it there don’t can’t But to it presents or Bevo key up to revenue. spent repurposing, there day, tax all I can As is being in always the benefit, way end of very of designation Sky, the better with if get OpEx and sell changes is a thing, of required if not was the that market. by money than the to get on generate pumped-up a this. trying in the that we the at Edmonton want there, is to

we’ll But But advantage as to it it your contributes So, it if And mentioned the that XX dollar. question, the what all better that selling on Glen QX. things than in than does a Bevo have play for business offset make out, more answer mentioned, months the work means Aurora Sky in QX, optionality. I’ve we bit of say in significantly still doesn’t pennies just for for the know, is I exactly to and seasonal our think a X it QX next Bevo.
