Acquisition of Real Estate, Facilities and Infrastructure for Two Active Grows and Five Colorado Medical Cannabis Dispensaries
Colorado Springs, CO, Feb. 21, 2019 — Covalent Collective, Inc., a burgeoning network of vertically integrated cannabis-centric enterprises, announces today the completion of its first acquisition, internally referred to as the “Colorado 16”, which includes ownership of the real estate that leases multiple medical marijuana cultivations, production and five Colorado medical cannabis dispensaries. The operators of Colorado 16 are among the most experienced in the cannabis industry and bring to bear more than ten years of experience in the production, extraction and distribution of cannabis products. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of Colorado 16 will form the foundation of Covalent’s vertically integrated operating platform. Our long-term strategy is to enhance and strengthen our platform and significantly expand it throughout the US, which includes plans to develop over one-million square feet of cultivation capacity. We look forward to continuing to share our progress on our various business initiatives with investors in the months ahead,” commented Mr. Bill Gregorak, CEO of Covalent Collective.
Colorado 16’s proprietary cultivation processes have resulted in consistently high-quality production and amongst the industry’s lowest cost of production. A next generation production facility is currently scheduled to be completed in 2019 and is expected to measurably improve yield and quality consistency. Hydroponics Depot, the largest supplier of canna agricultural supplies in Arizona, which is included in the Colorado 16 acquisition, will further help reduce the overall cost of production while capitalizing on the growth of both commercial and home cultivation operations in the AZ market.
