Company will release full financial results November 29, 2019, and host a conference call Monday, December 2, prior to market open
VANCOUVER, BC, and PHOENIX, AZ, Nov. 12, 2019 – 4Front Ventures Corp. (CSE: FFNT) (OTCQX: FFNTF) (“4Front” or the “Company”) is providing preliminary Systemwide Pro Forma Revenue, as well as preliminary revenue, for its third quarter ended September 30, 2019 (“Q3 2019”). Q3 2019 financial results are the first to incorporate the financial results of assets previously owned by Cannex Capital Holdings, Inc., which completed its merger with 4Front on July 31, 2019.
Based on preliminary information, and subject to potential accounting adjustments, 4Front’s Q3 2019 Systemwide Pro Forma Revenue was $16,902,029, an increase of more than 20% over the last quarter ($14,058,442), as disclosed in its release dated August 29, 2019. The Company regards Systemwide Pro Forma Revenue, a non-IFRS measure, as an appropriate indicator of the economic scale of its business. (Please see discussion of this Non-IFRS measure below.) The Company is also announcing preliminary IFRS revenue of $7,517,621 for Q3 2019.
“We continued to make significant strides through the third quarter of 2019 driven both by our integration with Cannex and organic development of our operations,” said Josh Rosen, CEO of 4Front. “While the revenue growth is important, the future success of this company is being driven forward by the operational milestones we continue to achieve. I look forward to providing investors deeper insight into our performance and strategic plans on our December 2nd earnings call.”
The Company plans to release full financial results after markets close on November 29, 2019. Management will host a conference call to discuss the financial results the following Monday, December 2, at 9 a.m. EST.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
4Front uses Systemwide Pro Forma Revenue, which is not a measurement included in the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), to capture total revenue plus revenue from entities with which the Company has a management contract, or effectively similar relationship (net of any management fee or effectively similar revenue), but does not consolidate the financial results of per IFRS 10 – Consolidated Financial Statements, plus revenue from pending and closed acquisitions as if such acquisitions had occurred on January 1, 2019. 4Front considers this measure to be an appropriate indicator of the growth and scope of the business. The following table provides a reconciliation of Systemwide Pro Forma Revenue to its closest IFRS measure.
