Cannabis REIT NewLake expands credit facility from $30 million to $90 million

NewLake Capital Partners, a cannabis industry real estate investment trust (REIT), expanded its five-year revolving credit facility by $60 million to $90 million.

The Connecticut-based company announced the original $30 million credit facility from an unidentified lender in May.

At the time, NewLake said the loan could be expanded up to $100 million.

The credit facility has a 5.65% interest rate for the first three years, followed by a floating rate, and matures in May 2027.

The expanded $90 million loan includes two new lenders, also unidentified but described by NewLake CEO Anthony Coniglio in a Tuesday news release as “bank partners.”

“Access to debt capital is a competitive advantage in this challenging environment and should allow us to continue our disciplined approach toward investing in high-quality cannabis real estate,” Coniglio said in a statement.
