California-based KushCo Holdings, a cannabis company specializing in ancillary products such as packaging, closed on a $50 million credit facility that will be used for working capital and potential acquisitions.

The transaction consists of a $35 million revolving line of credit that can be increased by $15 million subject to certain terms, according to the company.

The lender is Chicago-based Monroe Capital, a private credit asset management firm.

KushCo CEO Nick Kovacevich said in a statement that it is “imperative to have an adequately sized credit facility that will increase as our business grows.”

Since June 2018, KushCo has raised a total of $70 million in stock fundings.

KushCo recently reported revenues of $41.5 million for its fiscal third quarter, more than triple the amount in the same period a year ago. Losses increased slightly to $10.6 million.

Shares of the company, which trade on the over-the-counter exchanges under the ticker symbol KSHB, were up nearly 4% to $3.97 at midday Thursday.

KushCo recently applied to be listed on the Nasdaq.
