Trulieve Cannabis Obtains Two Dispensaries In Ohio Following Litigation Settlement

Trulieve Cannabis (CSE: TRUL) has added assets in Ohio to its portfolio following the conclusion of litigation in the state related to the acquisition of certain Harvest of Ohio assets in connection with its 2021 purchase of Harvest Health and Recreation..

The litigation was launched in July of last year in relation to $23.8 million in unpaid loans and other fees owed to Trulieve, which was used for capital and operating expenses, including funding payroll, paying licensing fees and rent.

As part of the settlement of that debt, Trulieve is to acquire Harvest of Ohio, LLC, which has retail storefront licenses for medical cannabis dispensaries in Columbus and Beavercreek. A third dispensary operated by Harvest of Ohio meanwhile will be transferred to Ariane Kirkpatrick, while the assets of Harvest Grows, LLC, and Harvest Processing, LLC, will be divested by Kirkpatrick. Those two entities are used to operate a production facility in Ironton, which will be sold to an unrelated third party whom Trulieve will enter into a service agreement with to provide operational support.
