“Commencement of sales into the adult use market in Nevada, under the state’s “Early Start Capitalized” program, is anticipated for July of this year, with a 12-18-month early mover advantage for existing licensees,” stated Scott Boyes, CEO. “In order to benefit from the strong revenue and cash flow growth anticipated for GreenMart, we decided to accelerate exercising our option and acquire the company. We anticipate the operations to be materially accretive for revenues and earnings in the current fiscal year. We are delighted to bring GreenMart and its award winning products under the BCC umbrella, and we look forward to reporting on our progress as we continue to execute on our aggressive growth strategy.”
GreenMart is fully staffed and operational, and is extremely well-managed. In developing the Nevada business, we are leveraging the operational and commercial best practices developed at our highly successful Health for Life and MPX brands in Arizona. We anticipate this will accelerate market share development in a potentially very sizeable market with strong barriers to entry. Additionally, the shared operational template facilitates integration.
