New Leaf Ventures (NLV) has received regulatory approval from the Washington State Liquor Cannabis Board for the sale of its cultivation license to a third-party asset management company.

The company said the sale of cultivation-related assets is through its wholly-owned subsidiary, New Leaf Equipment Co.

According to a press release, a third-party asset management company has purchased New Leaf Venture’s turnkey cultivation infrastructure and equipment. It will also reportedly lease the cultivation facility.

New Leaf Ventures also said that New Leaf Enterprises, which is the license holder, will retain its processor license, which will enable it to develop, manufacture and distribute all cannabis-related products in Washington state.

The company also said the sale of all fixed assets and equipment regarding the cultivation facility and the facility lease will enable it to focus its attention on advancing the processing and distribution of consumer goods to retailers across Washington.

CEO commentary

“Everyone on both sides of the transaction is thrilled to have this finally completed. As we’ve worked diligently to bring this to a close, the time has shown we’ve made the right decision as an organization to step away from indoor cultivation. The team has continued to do exceptional work building out the new procurement model, and I commend them for their efforts. Our continued mission is to have trusted and quality brands in the marketplace,” Dax Colwell, CEO and co-founder of New Leaf Ventures, said in a press release.

Headquartered out of Vancouver, BC, New Leaf Ventures’ flagship enterprise is New Leaf USA and its subsidiaries. It provides licenses, real property, intellectual property and equipment for lease, among others, to a Washington-based producer.

Shares of New Leaf Ventures (NLV) are up 21.74 per cent to $0.14 as of 1:13 p.m. EST on Monday.
