Glass House Brands Provides Update on Proposed Strategic Investment
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. and TORONTO, July 2, 2021 /CNW/ - Glass House Brands Inc. ("Glass House" or the "Company")(NEO: GLAS.A.U), one of the fastest-growing, vertically integrated cannabis and hemp companies in the U.S., today announced that its previously announced conditional agreement to accept a $50 million strategic investment (the "Strategic Investment") from TPCO Holding Corp. ("The Parent Company") has been terminated by mutual agreement of the parties effective today and the Strategic Investment will not be completed at this time. Glass House will consider future partnership opportunities with The Parent Company after the purchase and retrofit of the 5.5 m square foot greenhouse cultivation facility located in Ventura County, California (the "Camarillo Greenhouse Facility").
Glass House does not expect the termination of the Strategic Investment to affect current purchase and development plans for the Camarillo Greenhouse Facility, its acquisition of seventeen retail licenses, or the pre-transfer construction currently occurring with respect to four of those retail locations, or its ongoing land use permitting with respect to recently won licenses in Isla Vista and Santa Ynez, California.
Glass House expects to complete the purchase of the Camarillo Greenhouse facility this quarter and is currently negotiating with several banks and other lenders for property secured financing, the majority of which is expected to be used for the retrofit.
