TORONTO, June 17, 2024 – Flow Beverage Corp. (TSX:FLOW; OTCQX:FLWBF) (the “Company” or “Flow”), today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2024 (“Q2 2024”). All currency amounts are stated in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

Nicholas Reichenbach, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Flow, stated: “In Q2 2024, we delivered the best Adjusted EBITDA result since becoming a public company in July 2021, which demonstrates that our restructuring and focused operating model are translating to improved financial performance. While Flow brand net revenue has declined due to the exit of unprofitable commercial partnerships, we have significantly improved both gross margin and operating expenses. With our summer hydration campaign and refreshed Flow brand launching across North America next month and continued growth in our co-pack operation, we look forward to building on our momentum in profitable channels.”

Trent MacDonald, Chief Financial Officer and EVP Operations of Flow, added: “With significant year-over-year and sequential improvements in our profitability metrics, our Q2 2024 financial results help support our goal of reaching positive Adjusted EBITDA and cash flow from operations in Q4 2024. We expect gross margin will continue to improve as production at Aurora scales and as we focus exclusively on distribution channels that are profitable for the Flow brand. Today, our operational transformation is 90% complete, which means we believe we can achieve significant operating leverage as Flow brand product grows in focused channels and co-pack revenue continues to expand. This quarter is the beginning of what we expect to be sequential improvements in profitability as we look to unlock significant shareholder value.”


Financial Results for Q2 2024

Flow brand net revenue was $7.0 million in Q2 2024, a 26% decrease from $9.5 million in Q2 2023. Flow brand net revenue declined due to material impact of exiting commercial partnerships with U.S. retail and food service partners to meet the Company’s profitability targets. This was partially offset by strong growth in certain profitable channels and Canadian e-commerce, which has benefited from food service contracts such as Starbucks and Live Nation.

Consolidated net revenue was $12.1 million in Q2 2024, a 14% decrease from $14.0 million in Q2 2023. Offsetting in part the decrease in Flow brand net revenue, co-packing revenue increased 12% in Q2 2024, which is attributable to recently signed contracts. The Company expects continued sequential growth in co-packing revenue over the next several quarters.

Gross margin2 was 28% in Q2 2024, as compared to 18% in Q2 2023 and (15)% in Q1 2024. The year-over-year and sequential improvement in gross margin2 reflect consolidation of production to the Aurora production facility, improved utilization at the Aurora production facility, and a focus on higher margin channels for the Flow brand.

Flow reported an EBITDA1 Loss of $4.2 million in Q2 2024, as compared to an EBITDA1 Loss of $7.1 million in Q2 2023 and $10.9 million Q1 2024. EBITDA1 Loss relative to Q2 2023 reflects the factors impacting gross margin2 improvement, a $1.9 million decrease to salaries and benefits which is attributable to Flow’s recent restructuring and a $1.0 million decrease to general and administrative expenses as the Company reached substantial completion of its operational transformation.

Flow reported an Adjusted EBITDA1 Loss of $3.5 million in Q2 2024, as compared to $6.6 million in Q2 2023 and $9.2 million in Q1 2024. The Adjusted EBITDA1 Loss is attributable to the same factors that impact EBITDA1 Loss, removing stock-based compensation and restructuring charges

Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures

This press release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of our results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. We use non-IFRS measures including “Adjusted EBITDA Loss”, “Adjusted Net Loss”, and “EBITDA Loss”.

The Company uses a supplementary financial measure to disclose a financial measure that is not (a) presented in the financial statements and (b) is, or is intended to be, disclosed periodically to depict the historical or expected future financial performance, financial position or cash flow, that is not a non-IFRS financial measure as detailed above. We use the supplementary financial measure “gross margin”.

These non-IFRS and supplementary financial measures are used to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS and supplementary financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. Our management also uses non-IFRS and supplementary financial measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and to determine components of management compensation. For definitions and reconciliations of these non-IFRS measures to the relevant reported measures, please see “How We Assess the Performance of Our Business” and “Selected Consolidated Financial Information” sections of

the Company’s Management Discussion & Analysis available on sedar.ca and investors.flowhydration.com.
