The Leasing Facility will finance processing equipment.
Peter Quiring, CEO of Sunens, commented: “Construction of Sunens is well underway and we couldn’t be more excited to complete the build out of phase one of the project, which will give us over one million square feet of greenhouse space and the ability to deliver approximately 100,000 kgs of cannabis annually commencing on or about the second quarter of 2020.”
The Credit Facility and the Leasing Facility are secured by the Sunens facility, partially guaranteed by the Company and contain customary financial and restrictive covenants. The Company expects the transaction to close in the third quarter of this year.
