Multistate cannabis operator Ayr Strategies introduced an $81 million acquisition deal that may permit the Toronto-based firm to enter Arizona, giving it three storefronts within the Phoenix metro space and two cultivation services.
The deal comes on the heels of Arizona’s Election Day transfer to legalize leisure marijuana, which can largely profit the present operators within the state.
- Two storefronts in Chandler and one other in Glendale – each Phoenix suburbs.
- A develop and manufacturing facility in Chandler.
- An indoor rising operation in Phoenix.
Oasis bought for $10 million in money, $41 million in inventory and $30 million in vendor notes.
The acquisition will deliver Ayr’s storefront footprint to 11 dispensaries in 5 states, and CEO Jonathan Sandelman mentioned the corporate is “positioning ourselves as one of the top multistate operators in the U.S.”
Ayr already owns or has entered into acquisition offers in 4 different states, together with Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
“We’ve always looked to go deep in the best markets, targeting attractive assets in limited-license states with large populations, and where we can build a vertically integrated presence and continue adding to our deep talent pool. Importantly, it needs to be at the right price,” Sandelman mentioned.
