Marijuana multistate operator Curaleaf Holdings finished up its previously announced acquisition of vertically integrated Arizona cannabis company Bloom Dispensaries.
The addition of Bloom’s four Arizona retail locations gives Curaleaf a total of 13 marijuana stores in the state, according to a Wednesday news release.
Curaleaf also gains two cultivation and processing facilities in Arizona.
The deal was worth roughly $211 million, including $51 million in cash on closing.
Curaleaf will pay for the remainder by issuing promissory notes due on the first, second and third anniversaries of the closing, worth a total of $160 million.
The third promissory note may be paid in Curaleaf shares at a price of $13.85 per share.
Curaleaf said Bloom’s 2021 revenue was approximately $66 million.
