|DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND DECONSOLIDATION OF TRICHOME [Text Block]||
During 2022, following management strategic review of the operations of the Group, the Company decided to discontinue its operation in Canada and sell its subsidiaries in the segment, Trichome Group.
A discontinued operation is a component of the Group that represents a separate major line of business or geographical area of operations and that either has been disposed of or is classified as held for sale. The Trichome Group comprised the geographical operating segment for Canada.
Discontinued operations are excluded from the results of continuing operations and are presented as a single amount as profit or loss after tax from discontinued operations in the statement of profit and loss and other comprehensive income.
The Company identified its decision as indication for an impairment of Trichome group's cash generating unit (the "CGU"). The Company performed an analysis for the recoverability of the CGU and recognized an impairment of $115,112, which was recorded under Net loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.
On November 7, 2022, Trichome Group filed and obtained an initial order under CCAA (see Note 1), which is a Canadian federal law that permits a Canadian business to restructure its affairs while carrying on its business in the ordinary course with minimal disruption to its customers, suppliers and employees.
Per the CCAA proceeding, the Court has appointed a monitor, which oversees management activities. The administration of the CCAA process, principally relating to the powers provided to the court and the court appointed monitor, as well as the secured debtholder interests, removed certain elements of control of the business from the Company. As a result, the Company has determined that it no longer has a controlling financial interest over Trichome group as defined in IFRS 10, "Consolidations", and therefore has deconsolidated Trichome as of the date of the CCAA filing.
Following the deconsolidation, the carrying value of assets and liabilities of Trichome group were removed from the Company’s consolidated statements of financial position. The net amount deconsolidated from the Company’s balance sheet was $1,171, including $406 of cash, $7,228 of inventory and biological assets, $14,645 of property, plant and equipment, ($3,774) of bank loans and revolving credit line and ($17,334) of other assets and liabilities, net.
As a result, the Company recorded a loss from derecognition of net assets totaling $17,959 in non-operating income (loss) and the investment in Trichome group decreased to $nil.
In the context of the CCAA filing, there are no remaining liabilities to the Company or any of its consolidated subsidiaries related to the Canadian entities. The Trichome group was party to transactions with the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries entered into in the normal course of business; these transactions include recharge of various corporate expenses for services benefiting Trichome group and sell of inventory. Up to the date of the CCAA filing, these transactions were eliminated on consolidation and had no impact on the Company’s consolidated statement of profit or loss. After deconsolidating Trichome group, these transactions are treated as third-party transactions in the Company's financial statements. The amount of these related-party transactions during the period of November 7, 2022, to December 31, 2022, were $921.
The assets and liabilities of Trichome Group included in the consolidated statement of financial position as of December 31, 2021, and immediately prior to the deconsolidation on November 6, 2022, are as follows:
