The M&A market in cannabis and hemp has shifted dramatically in the last 12-15 months. While most operators once raced to expand and gain geographic scale, we are now seeing a major pivot as the focus is on measures of sustainability: positive cash flows, EBITDA and profitability, and a wider range of operational strategies.
Our 45-minute panel discussion, moderated by Tonkon Torp Partner Jessica Morgan, will provide strategic guidance and legal insight around cannabis mergers and acquisitions with a focus on the specific business landscape in Oregon. It will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
Topics will include:
A snapshot of the Oregon cannabis landscape
Cannabis M&A market trends and recent regulatory developments
Maximizing value when navigating a transaction
Key diligence and structuring considerations in executing an optimized deal
The impact of SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies)
