Advanced Cannabis Solutions Secures $30 Million in Funding
January 21st, 2014
News, Top Story
Advanced Cannabis Solutions (OTCQB: CANN), a firm offering real estate leasing, consulting, and ancillary products to the U.S. medical marijuana and cannabis industry, signed its first lease with a commercial grow facility earlier this year. Using sale-leaseback transactions, management aims to become a premiere landowner within the multi-billion dollar U.S. cannabis industry, as well as offer consulting, materials, and other value-added products to tenants.
This week, the company secured a total of $30 million from Full Circle Capital Corporation, including an initial $7.5 million in the form of Senior Secured Convertible Notes. Management intends to use at least 95% of the proceeds to acquire properties consistent with its business plan and lease them to cannabis grow operations. The loan is secured by real estate and requires interest only payments at 12% per year.
Recently, the cannabis industry has received a lot of attention from investors with companies like HEMP Inc. (OTC Markets: HEMP) and Latteno Food Corp. (OTC Markets: LATF) jumping more than 300% over the past month. Investors may want to take a closer look at Advanced Cannabis Solutions given its unique focus on the real estate underlying the industry and ancillary support services that represent a relatively low-risk niche in a new higher-risk industry.

On January 21, 2014 Advanced Cannabis Solutions (OTCQB: CANN) signed a definitive agreement with Full Circle Capital Corporation, a closed-end investment company. The agreement provides that the investment fund will initially provide $7.5 million to the Company in the form of Senior Secured Convertible Notes, subject to certain conditions. An additional $22.5 million can be borrowed by Company with the mutual agreement of the Company and the investment company.

The initial loan can, at any time, be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock, at a conversion price of $5.00 per share. It is contemplated that further advances will be convertible at 110% of the share price on the day of advance, or the ten-day volume-weighted average price leading up to the day of advance, whichever is lower. In addition, the investment fund will receive 1,000,000 three-year warrants to purchase common shares at $5.50 per share.
The funding of the loan financing is subject to the execution of additional documents between the parties.
