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 (iii) 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 (the “Form 10-K”), as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “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 nine months ended September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022. Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 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.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company reclassified $546 of inventory valuation adjustments previously included in inventories under net change in working capital adjustments on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 into inventory adjustments. See Note 4 — Inventories 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 $1,297 and $1,298 in restricted cash as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively. Included in restricted cash was a certificate of deposit related to Jupiter customs bonds totaling $1,252 as of both September 30, 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 the 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 Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2020, the FASB issued accounting standards update (“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 extended the cessation date of certain LIBOR from December 31, 2022 to June 30, 2023. The adoption of this standard did not have an impact on the Company’s Financial Statements, as none of the Company's notes utilized LIBOR rates.
