Closing moved to December 31, 2018 to accommodate transfer of cannabis licenses
VANCOUVER, Oct. 1, 2018 /CNW/ - C21 Investments (CSE: CXXI; FSE: C6QP) and Silver State Relief today announced that they have extended the closing date of the definitive purchase agreement under which C21 Investments will acquire Silver State Relief LLC and Silver State Cultivation LLC to December 31, 2018.
C21 Investments originally announced the signing of a definitive purchase agreement with Silver State Relief of Nevada on July 16, 2018 with an expected closing date of October 31, 2018, subject to regulatory approval. The closing of this acquisition requires a filing with local authorities for approval of the deemed transfer of the applicable cannabis licenses of the business to a Nevada holding company controlled by C21 Investments.
The filing for the transfer of these licenses took place on September 14, 2018. However, as regulatory approval for the transfer of cannabis licenses is expected to take up to two months or more, C21 Investments and Silver State Relief have agreed to extend the deadline for the closing to December 31, 2018.
In consideration for the delayed closing, C21 Investments has increased its deposit against the purchase price by US$2 million for a total deposit of US$6 million.
Rob Cheney, Chief Executive Officer of C21 Investments, said: "We look forward to closing this acquisition by year end. In the interim, the people at C21 Investments and Silver State Relief will continue to collaborate on the operational side of the transition, including the opening of Silver State Relief's new dispensary in Fernley, Nevada. We look forward to unlocking the value of the combined businesses."
