Management Commentary



“As we report the highest annual revenue in BaM’s history, we are excited and
focused on the next stage of our development. Specifically, as we start calendar
2023, we are focused on the following priorities:



    1.  Augmenting Core Accounting Team: As cannabis operators first and foremost,
        we are intentionally spendthrift with respect to overhead expenses. In
        order to improve the timeliness of our financial reporting we are in the
        process of making modest additions to our accounting team.
    2.  Focus Resources on Successful Launch of New Markets: We believe that our
        best return on capital projects in the near to medium term are our two
        recently issued retail cannabis licenses in Illinois and our New Jersey
        retail project.
    3.  Remain Operations-Focused in Existing Markets: We believe our core
        operating ability, both in retail cannabis and craft cultivation, is an
        under-appreciated asset which we are capitalizing on by entering new
        markets in capital efficient ways. We also plan to continue to drive
        operating efficiencies in our existing, more mature markets to hone our
        battle-tested capabilities and to improve our cash flow generation.
    4.  Prudently Evaluate Complementary Opportunities: We remain open to
        augmenting our platform with capital efficient opportunities that map to
        our capabilities, particularly within our newer markets. Given the
        attractiveness of our current projects, we plan to stay patient and only
        pursue opportunities that we believe meet high return thresholds."



“I look forward to updating investors on our advances in line with these
priorities as the year progresses,” stated Michael Mills, CEO of Body and Mind
Inc.

FY 2022 Financial Highlights:

· Revenues for FY 2022 were $31.6 million, a 17.6 % increase over FY 2021

revenues of $26.9 million.

· Gross profit of $10.9 million for FY 2022 compared to a gross profit of

$12.0 for FY 2021.

· FY 2022 net operating loss was $3.5 million compared to FY 2021 net

operating income $0.6 million. The change in net operating income was

primarily impacted by increased business development, license

applications, new operation startup and a decrease in flower pricing in

Nevada.

· FY 2022 other expenses totalled $22.1 million in expenses compared to $0.4

        million in FY 2021. The largest component of FY 2022 other expenses were
        asset impairment charges related to the Company's carrying value of
        certain goodwill, intangible assets, and right of use assets totalling
        $20.5 million, including impairments of: (1) $10.0 million of all of the
        Company's goodwill related to previous acquisitions; (2) $7.9 million to
        the carrying value of a Company subsidiary's Nevada cannabis licenses; and
        (3) $2.3 million to the right of use assets associated with leased
        Michigan property related to the Company's cancelled plans to enter the
        Michigan cultivation and processing market due to price compression in
        Michigan.

$0.25) compared to a FY 2021 net loss of $2.0 million (or basic and

diluted loss per share of $0.02). The large difference is mostly

attributable to the asset impairments discussed above.

$3.9 million in FY 2021*.

*Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-GAAP metric used by management that does not have any
standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to
similar measures presented by other companies. Management defines the Adjusted
EBITDA as the Income (loss) from operations, as reported, before interest,
taxes, and adjusted for removing other non-cash items, including the stock-based
compensation expense, gain on settlement, loss on impairment, depreciation, and
further adjustments to remove acquisition related costs or gains. Management
believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful financial metric to assess its operating
performance on a cash adjusted basis before the impact of non-cash items and
acquisition activities. The most comparable financial measure calculated and
presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP is net operating income (loss), which was
presented above prior to the Adjusted EBITDA figure.



          Net Profit/Loss ($28,228,104)
          Interest Income     ($72,000)
                 Interest    $1,372,208
                      Tax    $2,593,165

Depreciation/Amortization $1,490,516

                   EBITDA ($22,844,215)




                  EBITDA ($22,844,215)
      Gain on settlement      $460,001
      Loss on impairment   $20,517,192
Stock-based compensation      $435,266
