Duane Morris Helps Steer Harborside’s Purchase Of Calif. Co. Loudpack

California cannabis retailer Harborside Inc. announced Tuesday that it had closed a deal to purchase cannabis manufacturer and distributor Loudpack in a cash-and-stock deal steered by law firms Duane Morris LLP, Aird & Berlis LLP, Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP and Feuerstein Kulick LLP.


Under the terms of the deal, Harborside acquired all equity in Loudpack through the issuance of approximately 91 million subordinate voting shares and 2 million warrants, which can be used to purchase subordinate voting shares at $2.50 each within the next five years. Harborside also assumed $50 million in Loudpack’s debt and paid approximately $5 million in cash.

The deal adds 15 new California retail locations, manufacturing facilities and 230,000 square feet of cultivation space to Harborside’s portfolio.

Harborside, which currently trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange and the OTCQX, a U.S. over-the-counter exchange, is expected to change its name to StateHouse Holdings by the end of the month, the company said.

Harborside received legal counsel from Aird & Berlis LLP and Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP in Canada and Duane Morris LLP in the U.S., led by partner Nanette Heide.
