Curaleaf Holdings Inc. is buying Bloom Dispensaries and its four Arizona marijuana dispensaries for $211 million.

Joseph Bayern, CEO of Curaleaf, stated, “We are excited to announce the acquisition of Bloom, which shares Curaleaf’s mission of delivering the highest-quality products and superior service to patients and customers while striving to make a positive impact in the communities we serve. Bloom has built a strong and profitable business, and we believe the combination of our two companies will enhance our competitive position and ability to continue gaining share in the highly attractive Arizona market.”
Under the terms of the deal, Curaleaf will pay $51 million in cash at closing, with the remaining $160 million paid in three promissory notes of $50 million, $50 million, and $60 million due, respectively, on the first, second and third anniversaries of the closing of the transaction.
