Recently Announced Joint Venture:
NY SHI and Shi Farms – June 12 (Letter of Intent) and July 22 (Closing)
Canbiola and its wholly-owned subsidiary, NY Hemp Depot LLC, has officially formed a joint venture with NY – SHI, LLC (“NY – SHI”) and EWSD I LLC dba Shi Farms (“Shi Farms”), a vertically-integrated high - CBD hemp cultivation company, to aggregate and purchase fully-grown, harvested industrial hemp from third-party farmers in the State of New York.
The joint venture will operate the NY Hemp Depot Facility for hemp processing in the State of New York. Additionally, it may also sell feminized seeds, clones, and additional materials required to grow industrial hemp and maximize CBD potency. NY – SHI’s cultivating license will be amended to add the NY Hemp Depot Facility. The NY Hemp Depot Facility will empower and enable local farmers, both indoor and outdoor, with technologies, products, and services to help them grow their businesses and revenues. The joint venture plans to aggregate and purchase fully-grown, harvested industrial hemp from farmers in New York, who are growing such industrial hemp on their own properties and, in the future, to solicit farmers to grow industrial hemp on behalf of the joint venture under NY – SHI’s cultivating license.
NY Hemp Depot LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canbiola, has full and complete discretion to manage and control the joint venture. NY Hemp Depot LLC is providing a building for the operation of the NY Hemp Depot Facility, location services, management, and day-to-day operations, and services for the recruitment of farmers.
Shi Farms, which is a dba for EWSD I, LLC, is a licensed Hemp Cultivation Operation under the Colorado Department of Agriculture, operating a 300-acre farm and 40,000 square feet of research greenhouses. NY – SHI is providing to the joint venture technical expertise regarding the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp, growing technology and expertise, use of its cultivating license that will be amended to add the NY Hemp Depot Facility, and services for the recruitment of farmers. NY – SHI agreed to sell certain products to the joint venture, including feminized hemp seeds and/or clone plants, at the prevailing market price for such products at the time of the sale, for the joint venture to sell to farmers.
Canbiola also has the right to acquire certain isolate from Shi Farms at the cost of processing the isolate from biomass. The biomass would be aggregated and then shipped to Shi Farms’ facility in Pueblo, Colorado, where it would be processed by Shi Farms’ other joint-venture partner, Mile High Labs, Inc. The amalgamation and processing will be done by Mile High Labs’ The Monster (https://www.milehighlabs.com).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Canbiola’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Canbiola provides Adjusted Operating/EBITDA as supplemental measures of its performance.
To provide investors with additional insight and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and decision-making surrounding pro forma operations, we supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS as non-GAAP financial measures of earnings. EBITDA represents net income before income tax expense (benefit), interest expense, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus stock-based compensation and change in fair value of derivative liabilities. Adjusted EPS represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding. Our management uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS as financial measures to evaluate the profitability and efficiency of our business model. We use these non-GAAP financial measures to access the strength of the underlying operations of our business. These adjustments and the non-GAAP financial measures that are derived from them provide supplemental information to analyze our operations between periods and overtime. We find this especially useful when reviewing pro forma results of operations, which include large non-cash amortizations of intangible assets from acquisitions and stock-based compensation. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
