NOTE 3 – ACQUISITIONS
KPG of Anna LLC and KPG of Harrisburg LLC
Effective October 1, 2019, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation approved the Company’s acquisition of (i)100% of the ownership interests of KPG of Anna LLC and KPG of Harrisburg LLC, the Company’s two cannabis-licensed clients that operate medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Illinois (both entities collectively, the “KPGs”), and (ii) the 40% ownership interests not already owned by the Company of Mari Holdings IL LLC, the Company’s subsidiary that owns the real estate in which the KPGs’ dispensaries are located (“Mari-IL”). On such date, shares of the Company’s common stock, representing the entire purchase price, were issued to the sellers of the KPGs and Mari-IL, and these entities became wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company.
The acquisition was accounted for in accordance with ASC 805. The following table summarizes the allocation of the purchase price to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date:
SCHEDULE OF FAIR VALUE OF ASSETS ACQUIRED ON ACQUISITION
Since the date of acquisition, the KPGs have contributed approximately $30.7 million of revenue and $6.8 million of pretax income.
Consolidated unaudited pro forma results of operations for the Company are presented below for the year ended December 31, 2019 assuming this October 2019 acquisition had occurred at January 1, 2019, the beginning of the reporting period of these financial statements. Consolidated results are unchanged for the year ended December 31, 2020.
SCHEDULE OF UNAUDITED PRO FORMA RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of the Company’s actual results if the transaction had been completed during the periods reflected above, nor is it necessarily an indication of future operating results. Amounts do not include any operating efficiencies or costs savings that the Company would have been able to achieve.
The Harvest Foundation LLC
In August 2019, the Company entered into a purchase agreement to acquire 100% of the ownership interests of The Harvest Foundation LLC (“Harvest”), the Company’s cannabis-licensed client in the state of Nevada. The acquisition is conditioned upon legislative approval of the transaction. At this time, the state has paused the processing of cannabis license transfers, without indicating when it will resume. Upon the resumption of these activities and the ensuing approval by the state, the Company expects to consummate this transaction whereby the operations of Harvest will be consolidated into the Company’s financial statements.
The purchase price is comprised of the issuance of (i) shares of the Company’s common stock, in the aggregate, to two owners of Harvest, which as a good faith deposit, were issued upon execution of the purchase agreement, (ii) $1.2 million of the Company’s common stock at closing, based on the closing price of the common stock on the day prior to legislative approval of the transaction, and (iii) warrants to purchase 400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the day prior to legislative approval of the transaction. The issued shares were recorded at par value. Such shares are restricted and will be returned to the Company in the event the transaction does not close by a date certain.
Kind Therapeutics USA Inc.
In the fall of 2016, the members of Kind Therapeutics USA Inc., the Company’s cannabis-licensed client in Maryland that holds licenses for the cultivation, production, and dispensing of medical cannabis (“Kind”), and the Company agreed to a partnership/joint venture whereby Kind would be owned 70% by the Company and 30% by the members of Kind, subject to approval by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (“MMCC”). Prior to finalizing the documents confirming the partnership/joint venture, in December 2018, the Company and the members of Kind negotiated and entered into a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) for the Company to acquire 100% of the membership interests of Kind. The MOU provides for a total purchase price of $6.3 million in cash, shares of the Company’s common stock, and other consideration. The acquisition is subject to approval by the MMCC, which will be applied for following the resolution of the litigation with Kind discussed below.
Also in December 2018, (i) MariMed Advisors Inc., the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, and Kind entered into a management services agreement to provide Kind with comprehensive management services in connection with the business and operations of Kind (“the MSA”), and (ii) Mari Holdings MD LLC, the Company’s majority-owned subsidiary, entered into a lease with Kind for Kind’s utilization of the Company’s 180,000 square foot cultivation and production facility in Hagerstown, MD (“the Lease”), which the Company purchased, designed, and developed for occupancy and use by Kind commencing in late 2017. Additionally, in October 2019, Mari Holdings MD LLC purchased a 9,000 square foot building in Anne Arundel County, MD, which is currently under constructions, for the development of a dispensary which would be leased to Kind.
In 2019, the members of Kind sought to renegotiate the terms of the MOU and has subsequently sought to renege on both the original partnership/joint venture and the MOU. The Company engaged with Kind in good faith in an attempt to reach updated terms acceptable to both parties, however Kind failed to reciprocate in good faith, resulting in an impasse. Incrementally, both parties through counsel further sought to resolve the impasse, however such initiative resulted in both parties commencing legal proceedings. As a result, the consummation of this acquisition has been delayed and may not ultimately be completed. The litigation is further discussed in Note 21 – Commitments and Contingencies.
In May 2019, the Company entered into a purchase agreement to acquire MediTaurus LLC (“MediTaurus”), a company formed and owned by Jokubas Ziburkas PhD, a neuroscientist and leading authority on CBD and its interactions with the brain and endocannabinoid system. MediTaurus currently operates in the United States and Europe and has developed proprietary CBD formulations sold under its Florance™ brand.
Pursuant to the purchase agreement, the Company acquired 70% of MediTaurus on June 1, 2019. The purchase price was $2.8 million, comprised of cash payments totaling $720,000 and shares of the Company’s common stock valued at $2,080,000. The Company expects to complete the acquisition of the remining 30% of MediTaurus in April 2021.
The acquisition was accounted for in accordance with ASC 10. The following table summarizes the allocation, adjusted in September 2019, of the purchase price to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date:
SCHEDULE OF FAIR VALUE OF ASSETS ACQUIRED ON ACQUISITION
Based on a valuation of MediTaurus in late 2019, the goodwill recorded in connection with the transaction was written off.
AgriMed Industries of PA LLC
In July 2018, the Company entered into a purchase agreement to acquire 100% of the ownership interests of AgriMed Industries of PA LLC (“AgriMed”), an entity that holds a license from the state of Pennsylvania for the cultivation of cannabis. The purchase price was comprised of $8 million, payable in stock and cash, and the assumption of certain liabilities of AgriMed. In February 2019, the Company commenced legal proceedings against AgriMed seeking specific performance of the purchase agreement.
In May 2019, the dispute between the parties was resolved through the cash payment to the Company of $3.1 million and other good and valuable consideration, in exchange for the Company relinquishing its rights under the purchase agreement and releasing its claims against AgriMed. The net amount of approximately $2,949,000, representing the cash payment less legal fees and write-offs of assets and supplies, was recorded in Other Non-Operating Income in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2019.
The entire disclosure for a business combination (or series of individually immaterial business combinations) completed during the period, including background, timing, and recognized assets and liabilities. The disclosure may include leverage buyout transactions (as applicable).
