Cannabis multistate operator iAnthus Capital Holdings closed a previously announced restructuring and recapitalization deal, then disclosed $25 million in new financing via senior secured notes.

New York- and Toronto-based iAnthus originally entered the restructuring and recapitalization deal in 2020 after defaulting on interest payments and receiving a demand for repayment on its secured debt.

Under the deal, according to a Friday news release, iAnthus issued more than 6 billion shares to holders of the company’s secured and unsecured convertible debentures.

The company said its shares might be consolidated in the future.

Some debtholders acquired $25 million of new 8% senior secured debentures, due June 2027.
