“As one of the fastest-growing categories in cannabis, edibles are a key component of the Glass House growth strategy,” said Kyle Kazan, Glass House’s CEO. “PLUS has built a very strong brand in the gummy segment, and in the very competitive California and Nevada markets, no less. PLUS’ diverse and well-recognized line of edibles, including dual-action sleep and strain-specific products, is the ideal complement to our portfolio. Our vertically-integrated platform will allow us to expand the distribution of PLUS to the more than 700 stores in our network, as well as to our own retail stores, as we pursue top sales ranking in both flower and edibles categories in the country’s largest market.”
The acquisition, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022, is being completed by way of a plan under the companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-36 and is subject to certain customary closing conditions for transactions of this nature, including, among others, the approval of PLUS’ creditors, approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia in the context of the CCAA proceedings, and the approval of the Neo Exchange.
“We developed PLUS with the vision of being part of the strongest brand platform in cannabis, and we are realizing that vision by joining Glass House,” said Jake Heimark, PLUS co-founder and CEO. “Our mission to make cannabis safe and approachable, with high-quality products that deliver consistent consumer experiences, is perfectly aligned with Glass House’s reputation for providing outstanding cannabis products, produced sustainably, for the benefit of all. We are looking forward to working with Glass House to continue to pursue this shared goal.”
