Marijuana MSO Jushi to acquire Nevada’s NuLeaf for up to $62.5 million

Florida-based multistate marijuana operator Jushi Holdings announced a deal to acquire NuLeaf, a vertically integrated cannabis company in Nevada.

The acquisition is worth up to $62.5 million and is expected to close in the first half of 2022, according to a Wednesday news release.

The price tag features a $52.5 million upfront payment that includes:

  • $15.75 million in cash.
  • An unsecured promissory note for the same amount.
  • $21 million in Jushi subordinate voting shares.

Another $10 million – “in an identical percentage combination” of cash, a promissory note and shares – will be issued “upon the occurrence or non-occurrence” of an upcoming NuLeaf dispensary on the Las Vegas strip receiving regulatory approvals to open for business.
