Cresco Labs (CSE:CL,OTCQX:CRLBF) has closed on the agreement to sell its Yellow Springs, Ohio property to Innovative Industrial Properties.
As quoted in the press release:
The sale (previously announced on November 26th) was for approximately $10.5 million, which includes funding for additional tenant improvements. Concurrent with the closing of the sale, Cresco Labs will enter into a long-term, triple-net lease agreement with IIP and will continue to operate the property as a licensed cannabis cultivation and processing facility. The property represents approximately 50,000 square feet of industrial space in aggregate. This is Cresco’s fourth completed sale-and-leaseback transaction, and its third with IIP.
“Teaming again with IIP as our long-term real estate partner enables us to further bolster our balance sheet, and redeploy that additional liquidity into higher yielding opportunities,” said Joe Caltabiano, President and Co-Founder of Cresco Labs. “We are thrilled with the footprint we have established and look forward to deepening our presence in those states, with IIP as one of our trusted capital providers.”
