Fines

The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission fined both TILT Holdings Inc. (CSE: TILT) (OTCQX: TLLTF) and Ayr Strategies (OTC: AYRWF) last week for over $200,000 each as both companies try to resolve issues each blamed on previous management. The settlement also allows each company to move forward with plans in the state. Tilt Holdings agreed to the settlement resolving concerns of the CCC, which cleared a path for the provisional licensure for the retail sale of adult-use and medical cannabis in Massachusetts. 

The commission also fined Sira Naturals, which is owned by Ayr Strategies, $295,000 for allowing an unlicensed intra-company delivery vendor it had received permission to work with to deliver products between other cannabis firms. Ayr noted in a statement that the Commission addressed a settlement between Sira and the Commission, “related to wholesale transportation activities during the challenging reopening of the Massachusetts adult-use market in 2020 following the COVID-19 shutdown.” While no violation has been admitted, the company thanked the Commission for its efforts and dialogue over the intervening period and appreciates the important clarifications that the settlement provides.

Valens

The Valens Company Inc. (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF) has closed its previously announced acquisition of  Green Roads and its manufacturing subsidiary.

If all the milestones are met in 2022, the transaction represents approximately 4.5x fiscal 2022 EBITDA.
