PHOENIX, May 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — 4Front Holdings, LLC (“4Front”), a diversified operator of strategically aligned cannabis-related businesses, including cultivation, production and retail operations, is pleased to announce it has secured a $50 million loan (the “Loan”) from LI Lending, LLC (“LI Lending”) to support the expansion and buildout of 4Front’s cultivation and production facilities ahead of its anticipated business combination with Cannex Capital Holdings, Inc. (“Cannex”) (CSE:CNNX).

The Loan’s terms include:

  • A five-year term
  • An interest rate of 10.25%
  • A 20% repayment premium at maturity

Importantly, the Loan is non-dilutive, not convertible, does not include warrants or similar equity instruments nor a prepayment penalty.

We have had detailed discussions with several prospective lenders over the last two years, but LI Lending offered terms materially better than others. In addition, our lender has a ground-up understanding of cannabis production and processing facilities.
