2. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with (i) United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information, and (ii) the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of our management, our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements and accompanying notes (the “Financial Statements”) include all normal recurring adjustments that are necessary for the fair statement of the interim periods presented. Interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year, or any other period. The Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements (and notes thereto) in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 (“Form 10-K”), as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 16, 2023 and with the relevant Canadian securities regulatory authorities under our profile on SEDAR. Except as noted below, there have been no material changes to the Company's significant accounting policies and estimates during the three months ended March 31, 2023. Certain information, footnotes and disclosures normally included in the annual financial statements, prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, have been condensed or omitted in accordance with SEC rules and regulations.

The financial data included in the Financial Statements contain all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to state fairly the consolidated financial condition, results of operations, statements of stockholder’s equity, and cash flows of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the current year ending December 31, 2023.

Principles of Consolidation

The Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries, as well as the accounts of any entities over which the Company has a controlling financial interest in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810 Consolidation. All transactions and balances between these entities have been eliminated upon consolidation.


Certain amounts in the Company's prior period consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company reclassified $4,741 of the Massachusetts Lease Liability (as defined in Note 11 — Massachusetts Lease Liability) previously included in current liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2022 into the Massachusetts lease liability in noncurrent liabilities. See  Note 11 — Massachusetts Lease Liability for additional information.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of these Financial Statements requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of policies and reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and revenue and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

Restricted Cash

The Company had $1,298 in restricted cash as of both March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022. Included in restricted cash was a certificate of deposit related to Jupiter customs bonds totaling $1,252 as of both March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Estimated Useful Lives and Depreciation of Property, Plant and Equipment 

Depreciation of property, plant and equipment is dependent upon estimates of useful lives which are determined through the exercise of judgment. The assessment of any impairment of these assets is dependent upon estimates of recoverable amounts that take into account factors such as economic and market conditions and the useful lives of assets. 

Depreciation is provided on a straight-line basis over the following estimated useful lives:

Machinery and equipment

2 – 7 years

Furniture and fixtures

3 – 10 years

Autos and trucks

5 years

Buildings and land improvements

5 – 39 years

Leasehold improvements

Lesser of useful life of lease term

Greenhouse - agricultural structure

5 – 15 years


Not depreciated

The assets’ residual values, useful lives and methods of depreciation are reviewed annually and adjusted prospectively, if appropriate. Buildings, leaseholds and land improvements are amortized over the shorter of either useful life or term of the lease. Gains or losses on disposal of an item are determined by comparing the proceeds from disposal with the carrying amount of the item and recognized in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Recently Adopted and Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Recent accounting pronouncements, other than those below, issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the SEC did not or are not believed by management to have a material effect on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2020, the FASB issued an accounting standards update (“ASU”) 2020-06 Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) — Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, which is intended to simplify the recognition of convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. ASU 2020-06 reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock, revises the derivatives scope exception, and makes targeted improvements to the related earnings per share guidance. ASU 2020-06 became effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2022. The adoption of this standard did not have any impact on the Company’s Financial Statements.

In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, Earnings per Share (Topic 260), Debt-Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) — Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options. ASU 2021-04 clarifies whether an issuer should account for a modification or an exchange of freestanding equity-classified written call options that remain equity classified after modification or exchange as (1) an adjustment to equity and if so, the related earnings per share effects, if any, or (2) an expense, and if so, the manner and pattern of recognition. ASC 2021-04 became effective for the Company on January 1, 2022. The adoption of this standard did not have an impact on the Company’s Financial Statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers. ASU 2021-08 requires that an entity (acquirer) recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities in accordance with Topic 606 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) as if the entity had originated the contracts. ASU 2021-08 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2023. The Company will consider adopting this ASU and the effects of adoption on the Company’s financial statements when it next completes a business combination.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. This guidance was effective upon issuance as of March 12, 2020 and may be adopted as reference rate reform activities occur through December 31, 2022. The FASB subsequently issued ASU 2022-06, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Deferral of the Sunset Date of Topic 848, which extends the cessation date of certain LIBOR from December 31, 2022 to June 30, 2023. We have not yet applied any of the expedients and exceptions and do not expect this guidance to have a material impact on our financial statements.
