WAKEFIELD, Mass., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA /OTCQX: CURLF) (“Curaleaf” or the “Company”), a leading international provider of consumer products in cannabis, has successfully completed the previously announced acquisition of Los Sueños Farms and its related entities (“Los Sueños”), the largest outdoor grow in Colorado.
We’re very excited about the closing of the Los Sueños acquisition. The vertical integration of our business in Colorado significantly strengthens Curaleaf’s market presence in the second largest state cannabis market in the U.S.
Boris Jordan, Executive Chairman of Curaleaf
This deal provides Curaleaf with a high-quality, efficient, and low-cost supply of biomass to support our wholesale and retail customers in Colorado and, once interstate commerce is allowed, on a regional scale. Overall, our newly expanded cultivation capacity will allow us to better serve Colorado’s $2.2 billion annual cannabis market opportunity.
Following the successful completion of the Los Sueños acquisition, Curaleaf gains three Pueblo, Colorado outdoor cannabis grow facilities covering 66 acres of cultivation capacity including land, equipment and licensed operating entities; an 1,800 plant indoor grow; and two retail cannabis dispensary locations serving adult use customers. As the largest cannabis biomass producer in the state, the Los Sueños facilities will help fuel the Company’s Select brand’s already market-leading presence in Colorado with a variety of best-in-class cannabis products distributed to nearly 2,000 locations across 18 states.
Bob DeGabrielle, Los Sueños founder and Colorado cannabis industry expert, will continue to oversee the Los Sueños operation and will take responsibility for Curaleaf’s Colorado wholesale and retail businesses.
Joseph Bayern, CEO of Curaleaf, commented, “The Los Sueños acquisition provides important new cultivation capacity to accelerate our growth and share in the fast-growing Colorado market. By leveraging the outdoor grow expertise of the talented Los Sueños team, we will optimize our new outdoor scale and cultivation technologies to lower our total cost of delivery, with the genetics that we perfect there serving as a center of excellence for all our future U.S. outdoor cultivation capabilities.”
