The consideration for the acquisition is $6.8 million for the business and $4.5 million for the real estate and farm assets.  Total consideration of $11.3 million was paid as $5.9 million of cash and $5.4 million in Schwazze common stock upon closing.

Schwazze has major expansion plans for SCG, which includes the buildout of cultivation capacity over the next four quarters. SCG produces premium flower with approximately 30 strains and has won multiple Connoisseur Cup awards for select strains in 2020 (Best Hybrid Flower – Banger & Mac) and 2021 (Best Rec Hybrid – The Mac). 

“Our team is excited to add SCG, a premier cannabis cultivator, to our growing platform. This acquisition will provide premium quality flower to our 19 Star Buds Colorado locations.  In addition, the SCG garden will significantly increase our capability to produce a substantial amount of biomass for our Purplebee’s distillate manufacturing operation, which will benefit the entire cannabis industry throughout the state. The addition of SCG to our portfolio is expected to provide a positive margin impact for Schwazze,” said Justin Dye, Schwazze’s CEO.
