Emerald Health Gets Credit Facility, Wurk Raises Millions For Expansion

Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQX: EMHTF) announced that its 50%-owned joint venture for large-scale, low-cost, high-quality cannabis production, Pure Sunfarms Corp. has entered into a credit agreement with Bank of Montreal as agent and lead lender and Farm Credit Canada as a lender for C$20 million secured non-revolving term loan. The credit is secured by the greenhouse facility.

Pure Sunfarms intends to use the funds available under the Credit Facility to finance the final costs of converting its 1.1 million square foot greenhouse for cannabis production, the vast majority of which was completed in January of this year.

“Pure Sunfarms is proud to enter into this Credit Facility with these two highly respected institutional lenders,” said Mandesh Dosanjh, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Pure Sunfarms. “As Pure Sunfarms approaches operational positive cash flow, completion of non-dilutive financing with these financial institutions is an excellent accomplishment,” said Dr. Avtar Dhillon, President and Executive Chairman of Emerald. “We look forward to Pure Sunfarms’ rapid quarterly growth through this year as it comes fully onstream.”

Wurk

Cannabis HR firm Wurk announced the raise of $11 million in a funding round led by returning investors Poseidon Asset Management and Arcadian Fund. Existing investors Altitude, Salveo Capital, Phyto Partners, and The Arcview Group also participated in the round.

Wurk plans to use the money to enhance the client experience while expanding its cannabis HCM platform, including the launch of managed services. This will provide its growing customer base with dedicated human resource, payroll, and tax experts. The company will also implement a robust analytics engine to provide highly sought-after data for the cannabis industry, allowing employers to increase operating efficiencies by benchmarking themselves against industry best practices.

“After participating in Wurk’s previous two funding rounds, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to invest in the company yet again,” said Emily Paxhia, Managing Partner at Poseidon Asset Management. “As investors focused on the cannabis space, we regularly see the HR, accounting, and tax challenges that startups in the industry face on a frequent basis. Wurk’s solution helps ease that massive compliance burden and creates a huge investment opportunity in doing so.”
