"2022 was a transformational year for SLANG, and the Company is demonstrating exceptional financial performance relative to its peer group. In Q4 FY2022, we achieved positive operational cash flow for the first time in the company's history, which we also generated subsequent to year-end in Q1 FY2023, meaning we have now produced two consecutive quarters of positive operational cashflow," said John Moynan, CEO of SLANG. "We continue to consolidate our supply chain and streamline our operations to drive financial results across our core and emerging markets. In the month of October 2022, we achieved cash flow positivity for the first time in the company's history. We demonstrated year-over-year adjusted gross margin growth for each quarter of 2022, and we believe this trend will continue as we drive revenue growth in our most profitable channels."
