Tilt Secures More Funding, Not Out Of The Woods Yet

(CSE: TILT) (OTCQB: TLLTF) has closed an additional private placement of $10.2 million of senior secured notes from a syndicate consisting of existing shareholders and new investors, bringing to the total amount of the facility to $35.8 million, up from the previously announced maximum of $35 million. While Tilt has been quick to note that the company has reported net income for the quarter, unlike many other cannabis companies, it still isn’t completely out of the woods.

Especially the ban that was recently lifted in Massachusetts.
