Item 8.01 Other Events.


On June 4, 2019, MariMed Hemp, Inc. (“MMH”), a subsidiary of the Registrant, consummated a $10 million financing with a third party evidenced by the issuance of a promissory note (the “Financing”). The Registrant is a co-borrower under the promissory note and jointly and severally liable with MMH for payment thereunder. The promissory note has a maturity date of January 31, 2020, is subject to pre-payment by the borrower in its sole discretion, and stipulates a 15% fee, payable upon maturity or earlier pre-payment. No further interest is payable other than upon an event of default. In connection with the Financing, the Registrant issued the lender three-year warrants to purchase 375,000 shares of the Registrant’s common stock at an exercise price of $4.50 per share.


The proceeds of the Financing were used to purchase genetic hemp seeds for inventory (the “Inventory”). At the time of the Financing, MMH had an existing order to sell the Inventory, to an entity in which the Registrant has a minority interest, for $16 million, payable on or before December 1, 2019. Based upon the spread between the Inventory’s purchase price and the sales price, and after giving effect to the cost of the Financing, including related expenses, the Registrant expects to realize an operating profit in 2019 from these transactions of approximately $4.3 million. The foregoing expectation assumes full performance by all parties.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
