Published

on

Harvest Health & Recreation Inc (OTCMKTS:HRVSF) announced a few days ago that its shareholders together with those of Verano Holdings LLC approved a business combination between the two firms.

The idea of a Business Combination Agreement between the two companies was introduced in April this year. Once the agreement is in motion, Verano and Harvest Health shareholders will get to own stake in the merger which will handle the business operations of both firms.

An overwhelming number of Harvest Health investors voted in favor of the merger and the same case for Verano investors who unanimously agreed that it was the best way forward. The voting took place during a special meeting that was held towards the end of June.

Harvest shareholders and Verano shareholders will exchange their ownership stake on a 1:1 basis as part of the agreement. This means that Verano shareholders will receive Harvest Health shares while Harvest shares will receive Verano shares.

Harvest Health buys out Leaf Life dispensary

More recently, Harvest Health announced that it acquired Leaf Life, the only medical cannabis dispensary that is licensed in Casa Grande, Arizona. The strategic acquisition adds to the company’s growing portfolio of acquisitions in Arizona. It previously acquired a company called Devine Hunter, Inc., and that gave it access to six licenses.

Harvest Health’s acquisition of Leaf Life means the company can now operate in about 18 facilities and dispensaries that are based in Arizona.

“Arizona is the third largest medicinal cannabis market in the United States, yet too many in our communities still do not have adequate access to dispensaries that offer the high-quality medicinal products,” stated Harvest Health’s Executive Chairman Jason Vedadi.

Harvest Health therefore targets Arizona as one of the underserved markets where it can potentially secure a strong footing. Ricky Hendrickson, the vice president of Leaf Life pointed out that his firm agreed to a buyout by Harvest because the company seems committed to achieving success in Arizona. He also revealed that the two businesses agreed to a 2-year stock option lockup. Leaf Life will now become part of Harvest Health following the transaction.
