Acreage Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:ACRDF) appointed Steve Goertz as a Chief Financial Officer with effect from April 2, 2021. The new recruitment is on the backdrop of the resignation of CFO – Glen Leibowitz.

Glen increases turnover to $115 million

Glen played a vital role in positioning Acreage as a key player in the cannabis industry. He will stay with the company for some time to ensure the smooth transformation of financial activities. CEO of Acreage, Peter Caldini, said Glen is instrumental in improving the company’s annual revenues to $115 million from just a little lower than $10 million.

Steve will contribute over 25 years of experience

Steve brings over 25 years of experience in strategic planning, capital markets, and financial markets in many industries. His previous roles include CFO in SGSCO.

Steve also gained significant expertise in cannabis capital markets when working at Bespoke Capital Acquisition Corp for 14 months. Peter said he is pleased to welcome Steve to Acreage, and he is ideal to lead accounting and financial functions. Steve will play a key role in supporting the growth strategies of Acreage.

Agreed to sell Florida operations

High Street Capital Partners, LLC, a subsidiary of Acreage, entered a pact to sell common and issued common shares of Acreage Florida Inc. The company will mobilize $60 million from the proposed sale to Red White and Bloom Brands, Inc.

Acreage Florida’s assets include a processing facility, a license for operating medical marijuana dispensaries, a cultivation facility based in Florida. Sanderson, Florida-based property, is also included in the sale.

Peter said the company’s decision to divest Florida operations will concentrate on core markets and turn to profitability. It will also make ways for cash generation in the long term.

Peter further said the company can strengthen its balance sheet and expedite the expansion of cultivation projects. The initiative will also help it inaugurate additional dispensaries to sell adult-use cannabis in states like New Jersey and Illinois.

Acreage will publish Q4 2020 and full-year revenues on March 9, 2021. The company will also host a conference call at 8:30 AM EST on March 2021.

Florida’s cannabis market is expected to produce $2.6 billion in annual sales by 2026, according to the BDSA.

Jon Sandelman, CEO, Chairman, and founder of Ayr Wellness said, “With 43 stores now open in Florida and another 30 locations under lease, we continue to expand our presence with our latest opening in Eustis.

Livewire Ergogenics Inc. (OTCMKTS: LVVV) Expands Estrella River Farms Growing Space By 2 Acres

Published

on

Livewire Ergogenics Inc. (OTCMKTS: LVVV) has announced that the growing area expansion by two more acres on Estrella Ranch is on course in advanced stages. 

Livewire Ergogenics expands Estrella River Farms’ space to 130,000 sq. ft.

The expansion will boost Estrella River Farms’ (“ERF”) canopy space to over 130,000 sq. ft. of production, with most of the extra land already earmarked for private label partnership with many popular third-party cannabis companies in California.

CEO Bill Hodson stated, “Our affiliate company, Estrella River Farms (ERF), has delivered the second part of its inaugural harvest to the processing facility for final processing and subsequent pick up by its customer. As earlier reported, ERF has fully utilized the initially permitted cultivation area at Estrella Ranch.”

Hudson explained that since ERF has completed utilizing the permitted growing area, it is expanding growing space by another two acres to bring the total acreage to 130,000 sq. ft. In addition, the company has agreements from two notable California cannabis businesses to grow on Estrella Ranch, as the industry recognizes its facility’s great chance to cultivate high-quality, sun-grown marijuana in California. As a result, Livewire Ergogenics has set aside a large portion of the new land for those brands.

Livewire Ergogenics expanding growing space because of increased demand 

The initial intention was to increase one acre at a go. Still, because the interest for Estrella River Farms’ sun-grown cannabis is so high, the company decided to add two more acres right away. So, in addition to producing and promoting the “Estrella Weedery” branded product, Livewire Ergogenics will work with private label clients to produce and sell the “Estrella Weedery” branded cannabis. The Estrella River Farms and Estrella Ranch brands will be used to advertise the house product, which will be sold across California through current channel agreements.

The company is growing faster than expected due to increased interest in its product, not preparing for regulatory changes. Livewire Ergogenics runs a financially cautious operation and keeps expanding operations in line with its business strategy and the existing legal environment.
