Management Commentary:

Mr. Brandon Kou, CEO of Icanic commented, “This was a record quarter for Icanic and I couldn’t be more proud of the entire team. In 2020, we committed to revamping our basics and focusing on ways to improve and set up our business for the future. This past quarter was a great example of the hard work paying off as we saw record revenue figures while significantly improving our operational efficiency leading to record gross margins. With the addition of the De Krown team, we are very excited to continue to grow both our manufacturing partner relationships as well as our growing branded product portfolio. While we have a solid foundation now in place, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our business both organically and acquisitively and I believe we will continue to see the results of our team’s dedication to making Icanic a leader in the California cannabis space.”
