In its home state of Florida, the Company secured an additional cultivation and production facility with minimum capital outlay, with operations anticipated to commence in the fourth quarter of 2020, and has opened three of the seven dispensaries planned for 2020. In Pennsylvania, the Company is actively pursuing two additional dispensary locations to augment the strong sales of its existing Hanover dispensary. In Michigan, the Company enhanced the cultivation team on the ground with the engagement of Freedom Town. Finally, in Texas, the Company recently secured an extension of its convertible notes to allow the Company to continue to seek longer-term solutions there. The Company reiterates its full year 2020 outlook for consolidated revenues in the range of $55 million to $60 million and Adjusted EBITDA of more than $15 million. The forecast is based on projected revenues of at least $45 million for Cansortium’s Florida operations with additional revenue from the Michigan, Pennsylvania and Texas markets.
