Nevada cannabis producer Flower One extends maturity date for $6M in debt

Nevada cannabis cultivator-producer company Flower One Holdings amended the terms of a short-term debt agreement to extend the maturity date to the end of this year.

Flower One initially took the one-year, 15% loan from a private lender in March 2020 for $10 million, then amended it that July to add an additional $1 million and extend the term by six more months, according to a regulatory filing.

In January 2021, $5 million of the short-term debt was converted into shares.

At the same time, the interest date for the remaining debt was reduced to 10% and the maturity date postponed to July 2022.

The new maturity date is Dec. 31, 2022.

Las Vegas-based Flower One raised $5 million in a private placement in September 2021 and took on an additional $10.1 million in term loan financing from a shareholder in February.

In late June of this year, that term debt – then worth $45.7 million – was modified to:

  • Defer interest payments.
  • Reduce cash interest payments.
  • Extend the maturity date.
  • Pay down $9 million.
