Greenrose Acquisition Corp. (OTC: GNRSU, GNRS, GNRSW) ("Greenrose" or the "Company") announced today that it has closed its previously announced business combination (the "Business Combination") with Connecticut-based Theraplant, LLC. The transaction was approved at a special meeting of Greenrose's stockholders on October 27, 2021.
The Company has been renamed The Greenrose Holding Company Inc. and will continue to be listed on the OTC under the symbols "GNRS" and "GNRSW." Greenrose also intends to co-list on the NEO exchange as soon as practicable after the close of the Business Combination.
With the closing of the Business Combination, Greenrose currently expects to continue to work towards the acquisition of each of Shango Holdings, Inc. and Futureworks LLC (d/b/a The Health Center) and certain assets of Arizona-based True Harvest, LLC. Each of these acquisitions is subject to, among other things, Greenrose's compliance with certain debt covenants, the terms, conditions and rights in each of the applicable agreements and the receipt of applicable state regulatory approvals, if any.
"Today marks an important milestone for Greenrose," said Mickey Harley, CEO and Director of Greenrose. "Becoming a public company provides us with an opportunity to accelerate both our organic and M&A expansion plans as we work to build a platform of cannabis assets around award-winning, high-quality flower. We are grateful to our shareholders and our team for continuing to support us as we reach this exciting moment."
The acquisition of Theraplant, LLC was funded, in part, by a $105 million senior secured credit facility from DXR Finance, LLC.
