VANCOUVER, British Columbia and PHOENIX, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — 4Front Ventures Corp.

CSE Debut and Conference Call

4Front Agrees to Settle Legacy Advisory Contract
4Front, which began in 2011 as an advisory firm before evolving into the operations-focused, multi-state cannabis company it is today, has several historical advisory agreements still in place. These consulting agreements provide 4Front an ongoing share in revenue (typically 5%) of dispensary operators for which 4Front helped obtain licenses and establish operations.
As an advisor, 4Front ultimately helped obtain more than 60 cannabis-operations licenses across 10 states. This latest settlement brings the total amount in settled or arbitrated legacy contract awards to approximately $13 million, and leaves a significant majority of 4Front’s historical advisory and licensing contracts still in effect.
I view these contract settlements as just rewards for our efforts in helping shape the cannabis industry during its formative years. While we consider legal avenues a last resort, we have an obligation to enforce these contracts.
Josh Rosen, CEO of 4Front Ventures
In addition to the potential for additional revenue and settlements, one benefit to our consulting roots is our large network—we’ve also acquired controlling stakes in three former clients, and that’s an avenue we’ll continue to explore.
