I will take a one day break from posting the Income Statement Driver and Implied Breakeven charts to post this new one on Peer & Trend Gross Margin. OGI sure has a pretty trend. I will start using the above in quarterly Rundowns.

Aphria Q1 F19 Aug 31, 2018 Rundown

I do want to add a comment before we get going….  Aphria always had an industry leading MDA in my opinion.  They stepped up their game considerably [as did ACB last Q].  They increased disclosure of Gain on Bios, FVI, QoQ impacts on cost per gram, and their detail on construction cost overruns and plant destruction were [to me] the type of disclosure the industry should strive towards.  They could always make me more happy by: providing kg’s harvested, sold and held in inventory like CGC or providing QoQ expense commentary as ACB added last Q providing FG and WIP break downs on inventory…

Aphria Q2 F 2018 Rundown

Well I had a chance to look foolish with a 38% sales increase and $2.5 million EBITDA, and I look half foolish. Instead of doing an MDA rundown I am going to analyze this in my more traditional fashion… like when I write credit… Income Stmt, cash flow/EBITDA and then balance sheet items of note. I’ll draw from MDA for colour. They did beat the street EPS of 0.00 at 0.04. Sales: Up 39%... [not 38%... but I missed by 2% last Q so I am trending favourably] to $8.5 million. Fist Q without inventory constraints in 4 q’s. And by “inventory constraints” I…
