MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 23, 2020 /CNW/ — Vireo Health International, Inc. (“Vireo” or the “Company”) (CNSX: VREO, OTCQX: VREOF), today announced that it has filed a preliminary base shelf prospectus with the securities regulators in each province of Canada, except for the Province of Quebec. The preliminary base shelf prospectus has not yet become final for the purpose of the sale of securities. The intention of the base shelf prospectus is to allow the Company to more efficiently access capital when market opportunities permit.
Our balance sheet continues to strengthen, and we believe we have ample flexibility to continue executing our strategy pushing toward producing positive cash flow from operations. This prospectus ensures that we are able to take advantage of a favourable equity market in the event that additional capital is deemed necessary in the future.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kyle Kingsley, M.D
