Cannabis grow-supply giant terminates Michigan deal, moves into New Mexico

GrowGeneration Corp., a Denver-based specialty hydroponic and organic garden center giant, is terminating a previously announced deal to purchase HGS Hydro, which owns a chain of hydroponic garden centers across Michigan.

“Following appropriate due diligence and capital allocation analysis, we decided to mutually terminate the acquisition,” Darren Lampert, GrowGeneration’s CEO, said in a news release.

Lampert also said the company’s near-term objective is to build and acquire garden centers in new markets that are growth opportunities.

In a separate move, GrowGeneration said it’s acquiring All Seasons Gardening, an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based, indoor-outdoor garden supply center specializing in hydroponics systems, lighting and nutrients.

GrowGeneration did not disclose the terms of either deal.

The All Seasons acquisition, upon closing, would increase GrowGen’s portfolio of hydroponic garden centers to 63 stores across 13 states.
