    1. The Company’s financial statements for fiscal year 2023 and 2022 were audited by an external assurance firm.
    2. The Company adjusts its revenue by adding back the value of jewelry that was returned by customers, revenue from orders for which fulfillment is under process, and discounts given to customers. These adjustments are made to assess the gross revenue before deducting these items from revenue per IFRS. See Non-IFRS Measures for a full reconciliation.
    3. The Company adjusts its total comprehensive income (loss) by removing the impact of non-cash expenses, consisting of depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, accretion, revaluation of metal loan and translation gain or loss. See Non-IFRS Measures for a full reconciliation.
    4. Inventory balances in kilograms of gold are calculated by taking the total Canadian Dollar (CAD) inventory value at each quarter-end date and dividing the value by the CAD gold spot price per gram.

    STATEMENT FROM CEO VINCENT GLADU:

    This quarter, Menē experienced a reduction in top-line revenue Year over Year, predominantly driven by a reduction in volume of orders which was offset by a relatively smaller increase in our Average Order Value.

    Beyond any possible macro-economic effects, this reduction was partially the result of having adopted a different approach to our product promotions which favours healthy margins and inventory management over pure top-line growth, and is better aligned with our long-term brand and market positioning.

    As we continue to employ all available resources at our disposal in sales and marketing, we also continue to focus our efforts on our strategic plan and our transition to a much leaner and scalable operating model that will deliver long-term, sustainable, and profitable growth. In short, despite the vagaries of the market, the organization remains focused on its objectives and continues to exercise prudent operational discipline as it transforms itself.
