CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “may”, “will”, “would”, “could”, “should”, “believes”, “estimates”, “projects”, “potential”, “expects”, “plans”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “targeted”, “continues”, “forecasts”, “designed”, “goal”, or the negative of those words or other similar or comparable words. Any statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that are not statements of historical facts may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and future growth prospects.  The forward-looking statements contained herein are based on certain key expectations and assumptions, including, but not limited to, with respect to expectations and assumptions concerning receipt and/or maintenance of required licenses and third party consents and the success of our operations, are based on estimates prepared by us using data from publicly available governmental sources, as well as from market research and industry analysis, and on assumptions based on data and knowledge of this industry that we believe to be reasonable. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or development and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are in some cases beyond our control. As a result, any or all of our forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may turn out to be inaccurate. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, those listed under “Risk Factors” and discussed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in “Part I, Item 1A – Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, even if new information becomes available in the future. You should, however, review the factors and risks we describe in the reports we will file from time to time with the SEC after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Trulieve Cannabis Corp.

Notes to Unaudited Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

NOTE 1.  THE COMPANY

Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (together with its subsidiaries, “Trulieve” or the “Company”) was incorporated in British Columbia, Canada. Trulieve (through its wholly-owned subsidiaries) is a vertically integrated cannabis company which currently holds licenses to operate in six states Florida, Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, to cultivate, produce, and sell medicinal-use cannabis products and, with respect to California and Massachusetts, adult-use cannabis products. All revenues are generated in the United States, and all long-lived assets are located in the United States.

In July 2018, Trulieve, Inc. entered into a non-binding letter agreement (“Letter Agreement”) with Schyan Exploration Inc. (“Schyan”) whereby Trulieve, Inc. and Schyan have agreed to merge their respective businesses resulting in a reverse takeover of Schyan by Trulieve, Inc. and change the business of Schyan from a mining issuer to a marijuana issuer (the “Transaction”). The Transaction was completed in August 2018 and Schyan changed its name to Trulieve Cannabis Corp.

The Company’s head office and principal address is located at 6749 Ben Bostic Road, Quincy, Florida 32351.The Company’s registered office is located at Suite 2800, Park Place, 666 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 2Z7.

The Company is listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) and began trading on September 24, 2018 under the ticker symbol “TRUL”.

NOTE 2.  BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to state fairly the consolidated financial condition, results of operations, comprehensive income, statement of shareholders’ equity, and cash flows of the Company for the interim periods presented.  Except as otherwise disclosed, all such adjustments consist only of those of a normal recurring nature.  Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the current year ending December 31, 2021. The financial data presented herein should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes as of and for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 (“2020 audited consolidated financial statements”).

The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.  Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC and the instructions to Form 10-Q.

Significant Accounting Policies

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the 2020 Form 10-K.  There have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies, except for the adoption of ASU 2019-12 as explained below.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740) – Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes.  ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general

 

5


 

principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application.  The Company adopted ASU 2019-12 on January 1, 2021 and the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

COVID-19 Pandemic

The global outbreak of the novel strain of the coronavirus known as COVID-19 has resulted in governments worldwide enacting emergency measures to combat the spread of the virus.

In response to the outbreak, governmental authorities in the United States, Canada and internationally have introduced various recommendations and measures to try to limit the pandemic, including travel restrictions, border closures, non-essential business closures, quarantines, self-isolations, shelters-in-place and social distancing. Management has been closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19, with a focus in the health and safety of the Company’s employees, business continuity and supporting its communities. The Company has enacted various measures to reduce the spread of the virus, including implementing social distancing at its cultivation facilities and dispensaries, enhancing cleaning protocols at such facilities and dispensaries and encouraging employees to adhere to preventative measures recommended by local, state, and federal health officials.  

NOTE 3.  ACQUISITIONS

(a)  PurePenn, LLC and Pioneer Leasing & Consulting, LLC

On November 12, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of both PurePenn, LLC and Pioneer Leasing & Consulting, LLC (collectively “PurePenn”). The purpose of this acquisition was to acquire the cultivation and manufacturing facility located in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Trulieve acquired PurePenn for an upfront payment of $46.0 million, comprised of $27.0 million or 1,298,964 in Trulieve subordinate voting shares (“Trulieve Shares”) and $19 million in cash, plus a potential earn-out payment of up to 2,405,488 Trulieve Shares based on the achievement of certain agreed upon EBITDA milestones. The earn-out period is through the end of 2021.  The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 805, Business Combinations, and related operating results are included in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, consolidated balance sheet, changes in shareholders’ equity, and statement of cash flows for periods subsequent to the acquisition date.  As of March 31, 2021, total transaction costs related to the acquisition were approximately $1.8 million. Goodwill arose because the consideration paid for the business acquisition reflected the benefit of expected revenue growth and future market development. These benefits were not recognized separately from goodwill because they do not meet the recognition criteria for identifiable intangible assets. Goodwill is subject to the limits of IRC Section 280E under which the Company is only allowed to deduct expenses directly related to the cost of production, therefore goodwill is not deductible.

The preliminary valuation was based on Management’s estimates and assumptions which are subject to change within the purchase price allocation period (generally one year from the acquisition date).  The primary areas of the purchase price allocation that are not yet finalized relate to the valuation of the tangible and intangible assets acquired and the residual goodwill.

(b)  Keystone Relief Centers, LLC

On November 12, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of the membership interests of Keystone Relief Centers, LLC (referred to herein as “Solevo Wellness”). The purpose of this acquisition was to acquire the licenses to operate three medical marijuana dispensaries in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Trulieve acquired Solevo for an upfront purchase price of $20 million, comprised of $10 million in cash and $10 million or 481,097 in Trulieve Shares, plus a potential earn-out payment of up to 721,647 Trulieve Shares based on the achievement of certain agreed upon EBITDA milestones. The earn-out period is through the end of 2021. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 805, Business Combinations, and related operating results are included in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, changes in shareholders’ equity, and statement of cash flows for periods of subsequent to the acquisition date.  As of March 31, 2021, total transaction costs related to the acquisition were approximately $0.9 million. Goodwill arose because the consideration paid for the business acquisition reflected the benefit of expected revenue growth and future market development. These benefits were not recognized separately from goodwill because they do not meet the recognition criteria for identifiable intangible assets. Goodwill is subject to the limits of IRC Section 280E under which the Company is only allowed to deduct expenses directly related to the cost of production, therefore goodwill is not deductible.

During 2021, the purchase price allocations were finalized and adjustments, primarily to Net Working Capital, Goodwill and Intangible assets, were recorded by the Company.

In March 2021, the two unsecured promissory notes (the “Traunch Four Note” and the “Rivers Note”) were amended to extend the maturity one year to May 2022, all other terms remain unchanged.

 

NOTE 9. DEBT

In 2019, the Company completed two private placement arrangements (the “June Notes” and the “November Notes”), each comprised of 5-year senior secured promissory notes with a face value of $70.0 million and $60.0 million, respectively.  Both notes accrue interest at an annual rate of 9.75%, payable semi-annually, in equal installments, in arrears on June 18 and December 18 of each year. The purchasers of the June Notes received warrants to purchase 1,470,000 Subordinate Voting Shares and the purchasers of the November Notes received warrants to purchase 1,560,000 Subordinate Voting Shares, which can be exercised for three years after closing.

The fair value of the June Notes was determined to be $63.9 million using an interest rate of 13.32% which the Company estimates would have been the coupon rate required to issue the June Notes had the financing not included the June Warrants. The fair value of the June Warrants was determined to be $4.7 million using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and the following assumptions: Share Price: C$14.48; Exercise Price: C$17.25; Expected Life: 3 years; Annualized Volatility: 49.96%; Dividend yield: 0%; Discount Rate: 1.92%; C$ Exchange Rate: 1.34.

The fair value of the November Notes was determined to be $56.7 million using an interest rate of 13.43% which the Company estimates would have been the coupon rate required to issue the notes had the financing not included the November Warrants. The fair value of the November Warrants was determined to be $4.4 million using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and the following assumptions: Share Price: C$14.29; Exercise Price: C$17.25; Expected Life: 2.6 years; Annualized Volatility: 48.57%; Dividend yield: 0%; Discount Rate: 1.92%; C$ Exchange Rate: 1.32.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 accretion expense of $0.7 million and $0.7 million respectively, was included in general and administrative expenses in the statements of operations and comprehensive income.

Because of the Canadian denominated exercise price, the June and November Warrants did not qualify to be classified within equity and were therefore classified as derivative liabilities at fair value with changes in fair value charged or credited to earnings in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income prior to December 10, 2020.

On December 10, 2020, the Company entered into a Supplemental Warrant Indenture with Odyssey Trust Company pursuant to which it amended the terms of the issued and outstanding subordinate voting share purchase warrants of the Company (the “Public Warrants”) to convert the exercise price of the Public Warrants to $13.47 per share, the U.S. dollar equivalent of the Canadian dollar exercise price of the Public Warrants of C$17.25. The U.S. dollar exercise price was determined using the U.S. dollar exchange rate published by the

 

11


 

Bank of Canada as at the close of business on December 9, 2020 of C$1.00 = $0.781. The June Notes and November Notes converted to equity as per ASC 815-40, at an expense of $25.5 million and $27.1 million, respectively.

The $130.0 million principal amount of the June and November Notes are due in June 2024.

NOTE 11. CONSTRUCTION FINANCE LIABILITY

In July 2019, the Company sold property it had recently acquired in Massachusetts for $3.5 million, which was the cost to the Company.  In connection with the sale of this location, the Company agreed to lease the location back for cultivation. The landlord has agreed to provide a tenant improvement allowanace (“TI Allowance”) of $40.0 million, which was dispensed in its entirety as of December 31, 2020. The initial term of the agreement is ten years, with two options to extend the term for five years each.  The initial payments are equal to 11% of the sum of the purchase price for the property and will increase when a draw is made on the TI Allowance.  In addition, a 3% increase in payments will be applied annually after the first year.  As of March 31, 2021, the total finance liability associated with this transaction is $44.1 million.

In October 2019, the Company sold property in Florida in exchange for cash of $17.0 million. Concurrent with the closing of the purchase, the buyer entered into a lease agreement with the Company, for continued operation as a licensed medical cannabis cultivation facility.  The initial term of the agreement is ten years, with two options to extend the term for five years each.  The initial annualized payments are equal to 11% of the purchase price for the property.  A 3% increase in payments will be applied annually after the first year.  As of March 31, 2021, the total finance liability associated with this transaction is $17.2 million.

In October 2019, prior to acquisition by the Company, PurePenn, LLC (“PurePenn”) sold their cannabis cultivation facility in Pennsylvania for $5.0 million. Simultaneously with the closing of the sale, PurePenn agreed to lease the cultivation facility back.  The initial term of the lease is fifteen years, with two five-year options to renew. The landlord has agreed to provide a TI allowance of $21.0 million as an additional component of base rent. Payments are made based on one twelfth (1/12) of the TI allowance dispersed with 12.75% due for the first $5.0 million and 13.75% thereafter.  On March 8, 2021, the Company entered into an amendment with the landlord to increase the tenant improvement allowance to $36.5 million at a rate of 10.75% on the additional allowance in excess of $21.0 million.  As of March 31, 2021, $20.4 million of the TI allowance has been provided.  As of March 31, 2021, the total finance liability associated with this transaction is $25.1 million.

Under the failed-sales-leaseback accounting model, the Company is deemed under GAAP to own the above mentioned real estate properties as financing arrangements since control was never transferred to the buyer-lessor.  These agreements are presented on our consolidated balance sheet and depreciate over the assets' remaining useful life.

Holders of Multiple Voting shares are entitled to notice of and to attend any meetings of the shareholders of the Company, except a meeting of which only holders of another particular class or series of shares of the Company have the right to vote. At each such meeting, holders of Multiple Voting Shares are entitled to one vote in respect of each Subordinate Voting Share into which such Multiple Voting Share could ultimately then be converted (initially, 100 votes per Multiple Voting Share). The initial “Conversation Ratio” for Multiple Voting Shares is 100 Subordinate Voting shares for each Multiple Voting Share, subject to adjustment in certain events. Holders of Multiple Voting Shares have the right to receive dividends, out of any cash or other assets legally available therefore, pari passu (on an as converted basis, assuming conversion of all Multiple Voting Shares into Subordinate Voting Shares at the Conversion Ratio) as to dividends and any declaration or payment of any dividend on the Subordinate Voting Shares.

No dividend may be declared or paid on the Multiple Voting Shares unless the Company simultaneously declares or pays, as applicable, equivalent dividends (on an as-converted to Subordinate Voting Share basis) on the Subordinate Voting Shares and Super Voting Shares.

As of March 31, 2021, and 2020, there were 564,828, and 66,614 Multiple Voting Shares issued and outstanding, respectively, which were equal to 56,482,769, and 6,661,374 Subordinate Voting Shares, respectively, if converted.

(iii) Unlimited number of Super Voting Shares

Holders of Super Voting Shares are entitled to notice of and to attend at any meeting of the shareholders of the Company, except a meeting of which only holders of another particular class or series of shares of the Company shall have the right to vote. At each such meeting, holders of Super Voting Shares are be entitled to two votes in respect of each Subordinate Voting Share into which such Super Voting Share could ultimately then be converted (initially, 200 votes per Super Voting Share). Holders of Super Voting Shares have the right to receive dividends, out of any cash or other assets legally available therefore, pari passu (on an as converted to Subordinated Voting Share basis) as to dividends and any declaration or payment of any dividend on the Subordinate Voting Shares. No dividend is to be declared or paid on the Super Voting Shares unless the Company simultaneously declares or pays, as applicable, equivalent dividends (on an as-converted to Subordinate Voting Share basis) on the Subordinate Voting Shares and Multiple Voting Shares. The initial “Conversion Ratio” for the Super Voting Shares is one Multiple Voting Share for each Super Voting Share, subject to adjustment in certain events.

On March 21, 2021, in accordance with the terms of our Articles, an aggregate of 551,614 outstanding Super Voting Shares converted automatically, without any action by the holders of such Super Voting Shares, into an aggregate of 551,614 Multiple Voting Shares.  As of March 31, 2021, no Super Voting Shares were issued or outstanding.

NOTE 13. SHARE BASED COMPENSATION

Options

The Company has a Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”) as administered by the Board of Directors of the Company. The aggregate number of Subordinate Voting Shares which may be reserved for issue under the Plan shall not exceed 10% of the issued and outstanding number of Subordinate Voting Shares.

In determining the amount of share-based compensation related to options issued during the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company used the Black-Scholes pricing model to establish the fair value of the options granted with the following assumptions:

Expected Life in Years

Expected Volatility

Expected Annual Rate of Dividends

Risk Free Annual Interest Rate

The expected volatility was estimated by using the historical volatility of other companies that the Company considers comparable that have trading and volatility history prior to the Company becoming public. The expected life in years represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The risk-free rate was based on the United States three-year bond yield rate at the time of grant of the award. Expected annual rate of dividends is based on the fact that the Company has never paid cash dividends and does not expect to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

On January 4, 2021, under the Plan, the Board awarded options to purchase shares to directors, officers, and key employees of the Company. In accordance with the Plan’s policy, the vesting period for employees is 15% vest on December 31, 2021, 25% vest on December 31, 2022, and 60% vest on December 31, 2023. For founding and non-founding members of the Board of Directors, 50% of the options vest on December 31, 2021, and 50% will vest on December 31, 2022.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded share-based compensation for all stock options in the amount of $0.7 million. This is recognized as $0.1 million Cost of Goods Sold, Net, $0.5 million General and Administrative and $0.1 million Sales and Marketing in the condensed consolidated interim statements of operations and comprehensive income.

NOTE 16. RELATED PARTIES

The Company had raised funds by issuing notes to various related parties including directors, officers, and shareholders and the balance at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was $12.0 million and $12.0 million, respectively, as discussed in “Note 8 – Notes Payable Related Party”.

J.T. Burnette, the spouse of Kim Rivers, the Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the board of directors of the Company, is a minority owner of a company (the “Supplier”) that provides construction and related services to the Company. The Supplier is responsible for the construction of the Company’s cultivation and processing facilities, and provides labor, materials and equipment on a cost-plus basis. At March 31, 2021 and 2020, property and equipment purchases totaled $29.3 million, and $21.5 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, $12.5 million and $10.4 million of property and equipment purchases was included in accounts payable in the consolidated balance sheets. The use of the Supplier was reviewed and approved by the independent members of the Company’s board of directors, and all invoices of the Supplier are reviewed by the office of the Company’s Chief Legal Officer.

The Company has many leases from various real estate holding companies that are managed by various related parties including Benjamin Atkins, a former director and current shareholder of the Company, and the Supplier. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, under ASC 842, the Company had $14.9 million and $15.4 million of right-of-use assets in Property and Equipment, Net, respectively, and $16.0 million and $16.4 million of Lease Liability, respectively. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, $1.9 million and $1.8 million, is included in Lease Liability – Current in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

NOTE 17. CONTINGENCIES

(a)Operating Licenses

Although the possession, cultivation and distribution of cannabis for medical use is permitted in Florida, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, cannabis is a Schedule-I controlled substance and its use remains a violation of federal law. Since federal law criminalizing the use of cannabis preempts state laws that legalize its use, strict enforcement of federal law regarding cannabis would likely result in the Company’s inability to proceed with our business plans. In addition, the Company’s assets, including real property, cash and cash equivalents, equipment and other goods, could be subject to asset forfeiture because cannabis is still federally illegal.

(b)Claims and Litigation

From time to time, the Company may be involved in litigation relating to claims arising out of operations in the normal course of business. Except as disclosed below, at March 31, 2021, there were no pending or threatened lawsuits that could reasonably be expected to have a material effect on the results of the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. There are also no proceedings in which any of the Company’s directors, officers or affiliates is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to the Company’s interest.

On December 30, 2019, a securities class-action complaint, David McNear v. Trulieve Cannabis Corp. et al., Case No. 1:19-cv-07289, was filed against the Company in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.  On February 12, 2020, a second securities class-action complaint, Monica Acerra v. Trulieve Cannabis Corp. et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-00775, which is substantially similar to the complaint filed on December 30, 2019, was filed against the Company in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.  Both complaints name the Company, Kim Rivers, and Mohan Srinivasan as defendants for allegedly making materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s previously reported financial statements and public statements about its business, operations, and prospects. The complaint alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and SEC Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The complaint sought unspecified damages, costs, attorneys’ fees, and equitable relief.  On March 20, 2020, the Court consolidated the two related actions under In re Trulieve Cannabis Corp. Securities Litigation, No. 1:19-cv-07289, and appointed William Kurek, John Colomara, David McNear, and Monica Acerra as Lead Plaintiffs.  The Company believes that the suit is immaterial and that the claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend against them.

NOTE 18.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through May 12, 2021, which is the date these consolidated financial statements were approved by the board of directors of the Company.

On May 10, 2021, the Company announced they have entered into a definitive agreement with Harvest Health & Recreation, Inc. (“Harvest”) located in Phoenix, Arizona.  The Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding subordinate voting shares, multiple voting shares and super voting shares. Under the terms of the Agreement, shareholders of Harvest will receive 0.1170 of a subordinate voting share of the Company for each Harvest subordinate voting share (or equivalent) held, representing total consideration of approximately $2.1 billion based on the closing price of the Trulieve Shares on May 7, 2021.  The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

On May 6, 2021, the Company announced the closing of the acquisition of Mountaineer Holding, LLC.  The Mountaineer business consists of a cultivation permit and two dispensary permits in West Virginia.  Total consideration is $3.0 million cash and 60,342 subordinate voting shares.

On April 13, 2021, the Company announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Solevo Wellness West Virgina, LLC (“Solevo”) and its three West Virgina dispensary permits for an upfront payment of $0.2 million in cash and $0.5 million in Subordinate Voting Shares.  The closing of the transaction is contingent upon West Virginia state regulatory approval and customary closing conditions.

On April 12, 2021 the Company concluded the underwritten offer and sale of 5,000,000 Subordinate Voting Shares in the United States and Canada at a public offering price of $39.63.  In connection with the closing of the offering, the underwriters exercised in full their option to purchase an additional 750,000 subordinate voting shares. After paying the underwriters a commission of approximately $9.1 million and issuance costs of $0.2 million, the Company received aggregate consideration of approximately $219.1 million.  Net proceeds from the offering are expected to be used primarily to fund Trulieve’s business development and for general working capital purposes.

On April 5, 2021, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire from Anna Holdings, LLC a dispensary license operating under Keystone Shops (“Keystone Shops”) with dispensary locations in Philadelphia, Devon and King of Prussia for an upfront payment of $60.0 million, comprised of $40.0 million in Trulieve subordinate voting shares and $20.0 million in cash.  The agreement does not include a deferred payment or an earn-out.  The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close during the second quarter of 2021.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our consolidated financial statements and the related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes thereto and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, on March 23, 2021 (the “2020 Form 10-K”). This discussion contains forward-looking statements and involves numerous risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those described in the “Risk Factors” section of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in “Part I, Item 1A—Risk Factors” in our 2020 Form 10-K. Actual results may differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. You should read “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” contained herein and in our 2020 Form 10-K.

Overview

We are a multi-state cannabis operator with licenses to operate in six states. Headquartered in Quincy, Florida, we are the market leader for quality medical cannabis products and services in Florida and aim to be the brand of choice for medical and adult-use customers in all of the markets that we serve. All of the states in which we operate have adopted legislation to permit the use of cannabis products for medicinal purposes to treat specific conditions and diseases, which we refer to as medical cannabis. Recreational marijuana, or adult-use cannabis, is legal marijuana sold in licensed dispensaries to adults ages 21 and older. Thus far, of the states in which we operate, only California and Massachusetts have adopted legislation permitting commercialization of adult-use cannabis products.

As of March 31, 2021, we employed over 6,200 people, and we are committed to providing patients, which we refer to herein as “patients” or “customers,” a consistent and welcoming retail experience across Trulieve branded stores. We have eight material subsidiaries: Trulieve, Inc., or Trulieve US, Leef Industries, LLC, or Leef Industries, Life Essence, Inc., or Life Essence, Trulieve Holdings, Inc., or Trulieve Holdings, and Trulieve Bristol, Inc. (formerly The Healing Corner, Inc. and referred to herein as “Healing Corner”), PurePenn LLC, Keystone Relief Centers, LLC (which we refer to as “Solevo Wellness”), and Trulieve WV, Inc., or Trulieve WV. Each of Trulieve US, Leef Industries, Life Essence, Trulieve Holdings, Healing Corner, PurePenn LLC, Solevo Wellness and Trulieve WV is wholly owned (directly or indirectly) by Trulieve Cannabis Corp. As of March 31, 2021, substantially all of our revenue was generated from the sale of medical cannabis products in the State of Florida. To date, neither the sale of adult-use cannabis products, nor our operations in Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, have been material to our business.

Florida

Trulieve US is a vertically integrated “seed to sale” cannabis company and is the largest licensed medical marijuana company in the State of Florida. As of March 31, 2021, publicly available reports filed with the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use show Trulieve US to have the most dispensing locations and the greatest dispensing volume across product categories out of all licensed medical marijuana businesses in the state. Trulieve US cultivates and produces all of its products in-house and distributes those products to patients in Trulieve branded stores (dispensaries) throughout the State of Florida, as well as directly to patients via home delivery. Our experience in the vertically integrated Florida market has given us the ability to scale and penetrate in all necessary business segments (cultivation, production, sales, and distribution). Trulieve US has the experience necessary to increase market leadership in Florida and employ that expertise effectively in other regulated markets.

As of March 31, 2021, Trulieve US operated approximately 2.1 million square feet of cultivation facilities across five sites. In accordance with Florida law, Trulieve US grows in secure enclosed indoor facilities and greenhouse structures.

Massachusetts

Life Essence is currently in the permitting and development phase for multiple adult-use and medical cannabis retail locations, as well as a cultivation and product manufacturing facility in Massachusetts. Life Essence has been awarded a Final Adult Use Marijuana Retailer License for an adult-use dispensary in Northampton and a Final Medical Marijuana Treatment Center License for medical marijuana cultivation and processing in Holyoke and an affiliated dispensing location in Northampton. Life Essence also holds Provisional Licenses for Adult Use cultivation and processing at the same facility in Holyoke, and provisional certificates of registration for medical marijuana dispensaries in Holyoke and Cambridge. Life Essence has received clearance to admit plant stock to the Holyoke facility, has completed adult-use licensure inspections, and now expects to receive final adult-use cultivation and processing licenses.

 

19


 

In October 2020, Life Essence entered into an asset purchase agreement with PCMV pursuant to which Life Essence agreed to purchase certain assets of PCMV including the rights to a Provisional Marijuana Retailer License from the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, the right to exercise an option held by PCMV to lease real property in Framingham, Massachusetts for use as a marijuana retailer, and necessary municipal entitlements to operate as a marijuana retailer at the property. In December 2020, Life Essence entered into an asset purchase agreement with Nature’s Remedy and Sammartino Investments, LLC pursuant to which Life Essence agreed to purchase certain assets of Nature’s Remedy including a Final Marijuana Retailer License from the Cannabis Control Commission, assignment of a long-term lease for real property in Worcester, Massachusetts for use as a marijuana retailer, and necessary municipal entitlements to operate as a marijuana retailer at the property.  We expect the closing of both transactions to occur promptly following receipt of applicable state and local regulatory approvals.

California

Leef Industries operates a licensed medical and adult-use cannabis dispensary located in Palm Springs, California. Trulieve believes Leef Industries has demonstrated encouraging growth in the market, offering in-store and online shopping, along with product home delivery. Leef Industries is in the process of Trulieve rebranding and alignment with corporate operational standards, which we believe will increase consumer appeal and operational efficiency. The dispensary helps us stay abreast of trends on the west coast and in a robust and innovative cannabis market distinguished by local competition between diverse and numerous operators.

Connecticut

Healing Corner is a licensed pharmacist-managed medical cannabis dispensary located in Bristol, Connecticut. Healing Corner was founded in 2014 and provides a range of medical marijuana products produced by high quality licensed suppliers. At the dispensary, a licensed pharmacist and trained staff provide on-site counseling and education to patients. Patients may reserve their medical marijuana order through Healing Corner’s innovative Canna-Fill online system.

Pennsylvania

On November 12, 2020, we completed the acquisition of 100% of the membership interests of: (i) PurePenn LLC and Pioneer Leasing & Consulting LLC, which we refer to collectively as PurePenn, and (ii) Keystone Relief Centers, LLC, which does business as and we refer to herein as Solevo Wellness. PurePenn operates marijuana cultivation and manufacturing facilities in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area and currently wholesales to 100% of the operating dispensaries in Pennsylvania. As of March 31, 2021, PurePenn has 35,000 square feet of cultivation space. Solevo Wellness operates three medical marijuana dispensaries with approximately 16,000 square feet of retail space, each with six points of sale, in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.

West Virginia

On November 13, 2020, Trulieve WV was awarded a processor permit by the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis. On January 29, 2021, Trulieve WV was notified that it has been awarded four dispensary permits by the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis.  On March 22, 2021, we entered into a membership interest purchase agreement with Mountaineer Holding, LLC (“Mountaineer”).  Mountaineer holds a West Virginia cultivation license and two dispensary licenses.  Our acquisition of Mountaineer closed on May 6, 2021. We are actively working to begin operations as soon as reasonably practicable, which will vary by location depending on permitting and construction timelines.

Recent Developments

On March 21, 2021, in accordance with the terms of our Articles, an aggregate of 551,614 outstanding Super Voting shares converted automatically, without any action by the holders of such Super Voting Shares, into an aggregate of 551,614 Multiple Voting Shares.

Management’s Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Our management uses financial measures that are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, in addition to financial measures in accordance with GAAP to evaluate our operating results.  These non-GAAP financial

 

20


 

measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, our reported financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not defined under GAAP. Our management uses this non-GAAP financial measure and believes it enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial and operating performance from period to period because it excludes certain material non-cash items and certain other adjustments management believes are not reflective of our ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from net income as reported interest, share-based compensation, tax, depreciation, acquisition and transaction costs, fair value step-up of inventory from acquisitions, COVID related expenses, non-cash expenses and other income. Trulieve reports adjusted EBITDA to help investors assess the operating performance of the Corporation’s business. The financial measures noted above are metrics that have been adjusted from the GAAP net income measure in an effort to provide readers with a normalized metric in making comparisons more meaningful across the cannabis industry, as well as to remove non-recurring, irregular and one-time items that may otherwise distort the GAAP net income measure.

As noted above, our Adjusted EBITDA is not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA rather than net income, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, we consider, and you should consider, Adjusted EBITDA together with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA from net income, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, has been included herein.

Components of Results of Operations

Revenue

We derive our revenue from cannabis products which we manufacture, sell, and distribute to our customers by home delivery and in our dispensaries.

Gross Profit

Gross profit includes the costs directly attributable to product sales and includes amounts paid to produce finished goods, such as flower, and concentrates, as well as packaging and other supplies, fees for services and processing, allocated overhead which includes allocations of rent, administrative salaries, utilities, and related costs. Cannabis costs are affected by various state regulations that limit the sourcing and procurement of cannabis product, which may create fluctuations in margins over comparative periods as the regulatory environment changes.

Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing expenses consist primarily of personnel costs related to the dispensaries as well as marketing programs for our products.  As we continue to expand and open additional dispensaries, we expect our sales and marketing expenses to continue to increase.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses represent costs incurred at our corporate offices, primarily related to personnel costs, including salaries, incentive compensation, benefits, and other professional service costs, including legal and accounting. We expect to continue to invest considerably in this area to support our expansion plans and to support the increasing complexity of the cannabis business. Furthermore, we expect to continue to incur acquisition and transaction costs related to our expansion plans, and we anticipate a significant increase in compensation expenses related to recruiting and hiring talent, accounting, and legal and professional fees associated with becoming compliant with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other public company corporate expenses.

Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation expense is calculated on a straight-line basis using the estimated useful life of each asset.  Estimated useful life is determined by asset class and is reviewed on an annual basis and revised if necessary.  Amortization expense is recognized using the

 

21


 

straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the intangible assets. Useful lives for intangible assets are determined by type of asset with the initial determination of useful life derived during the valuation of the business combination.  On an annual basis, the useful lives of each intangible class of assets are evaluated for appropriateness and adjusted if appropriate.

Other Income (Expense), Net

Interest and other income (expense), net consist primarily of interest income and interest expense and the impact of the revaluation of the debt warrants.

Provision for Income Taxes

Provision for income taxes is calculated using the asset and liability method. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on enacted tax rates and laws for the years in which the differences are expected to reverse.   Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

As we operate in the cannabis industry, we are subject to the limits of IRC Section 280E under which we are only allowed to deduct expenses directly related to the cost of producing the products or cost of production.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $193.8 million, an increase of $97.8 million, from $96.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Increase in revenue is the result of an increase in organic growth in retail sales due to an increase in products available for purchase and overall patient count. In addition, between March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, we opened thirty-three dispensaries in Florida which increased retail sales year over year.

Cost of goods sold as a percentage of revenue increased from 23% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to 30% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to our expansion into new markets, timing of inventory flow-through and product mix.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $135.3 million, up $61.4 million or 83% from $73.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as a result of an increase in retail sales due to the additional number of dispensaries, products available for sale and patient count.  Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased from 77% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to 70%, for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease is caused by expansion into new markets, timing of inventory flow-through and product mix.

The overall increase in depreciation and amortization expenses was due to investment in infrastructure that resulted in more capitalized assets from the additional dispensaries.  Furthermore, amortization expense increased due to acquisitions and acquired intangibles.

Total other income (expense), net for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $(7.9) million, an increase of $6.9 million from $(1.0) million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The overall increase is the result of an increase in interest expense related to additional finance leases to support business growth, partially offset by our revaluation of debt warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

On December 10, 2020, the Company entered into a Supplemental Warrant Indenture with Odyssey Trust Company pursuant to which it amended the terms of the issued and outstanding subordinate voting share purchase warrants of the Company (the “Public Warrants”) to convert the exercise price of the Public Warrants to $13.47 per share, the U.S. dollar equivalent of the Canadian dollar exercise price of the Public Warrants of C$17.25.  As a result of this, the Public Warrants converted to equity and eliminating revaluation expense in future periods.

Under IRC Section 280E, Cannabis Companies are only allowed to deduct expenses that are directly related to production of the products. The increase in income tax expense is due to the increase in gross profit as a result of the increase in retail sales partially offset by an increase in production costs as a percentage of revenue.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $30.1 million, an increase of $6.5 million or 27%, from $23.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in net income was driven primarily by the opening of additional dispensaries, an increase in products available for purchase and overall patient count. This net increase to net income was offset by cost of goods sold which was driven by timing of inventory flow-through and product mix.  In addition, increases in sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses such as personnel costs, dispensary expenses, depreciation, interest expense, costs of entering new markets, ramping infrastructure, and go-forward compliance, all contributed to the offset in net income.  Income taxes also significantly increased period over period due to higher profit.  Lastly, other expense increased as a result of the revaluation of our debt warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2020. As previously noted, the revaluation is no longer applicable for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Sources of Liquidity

Since our inception, we have funded our operations and capital spending through cash flows from product sales, loans from affiliates and entities controlled by our affiliates, third-party debt, and proceeds from the sale of our capital stock. We are generating cash from sales and are deploying our capital reserves to acquire and develop assets capable of producing additional revenues and earnings over both the immediate and long term to support our business growth and expansion. Our current principal sources of liquidity are our cash and cash equivalents provided by our operations and debt and equity offerings. Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of cash on deposit with banks and money market funds. Cash and cash equivalents were $162.4 million as of March 31, 2021.

We believe our existing cash balances will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash requirements from the report issuance date through at least the next 12 months.

Our primary uses of cash are for working capital requirements, capital expenditures and debt service payments. Additionally, from time to time, we may use capital for acquisitions and other investing and financing activities. Working capital is used principally for our personnel as well as costs related to the growth, manufacture, and production of our products. Our capital expenditures consist primarily of additional facilities and dispensaries, improvements in existing facilities and product development.

To the extent additional funds are necessary to meet our long-term liquidity needs as we continue to execute our business strategy, we anticipate that they will be obtained through incurrence of additional indebtedness, additional equity financings or a combination of these potential sources of funds. There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain additional funds on terms acceptable to us, on a timely basis, or at all. The failure to obtain sufficient funds on acceptable terms when needed could have a material adverse effect on the results of operations and financial condition.

Cash Flow from Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities was $60.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $36.5 million, compared to $23.9 million net cash provided by operating activities during the three months ended March 31, 2020. This is primarily due to organic growth of our business partially offset by increases in net working capital requirements, including inventory, as we ramp the business to support the growth.

Cash Flow from Investing Activities

Net cash used in investing activities was $53.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $25.6 million, compared to the $27.8 million net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The increase is due to the increase of property and equipment purchases for the construction of additional dispensaries and continued expansion of our cultivation and processing facilities.

Cash Flow from Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities was $8.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of $4.1 million, compared to the $12.9 million net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in TI Allowance proceeds, partially offset by proceeds of warrant exercises.

Funding Sources

Promissory Notes

In 2017, we entered into three unsecured promissory notes with a 12% annual interest rate, which was amended in January 2019 to extend the maturity by three years to 2022.  The balance of these notes is $4.0 million. On December 17, 2017, we entered into a promissory note with a 12% annual interest rate and a balance of $2.0 million, which will mature December 2021.

Related Party Promissory Notes

In February 2019, we entered into a 24-month unsecured loan with an 8% annual interest rate with Benjamin Atkins, a former director and shareholder of Trulieve for $257,337. In March 2018, the Company entered into a 24-month unsecured loan with an 8% annual interest rate with Benjamin Atkins for $158,900. In June 2018, the Company entered into a 24-month unsecured loan with an 8% annual interest rate with Benjamin Atkins for $262,010. In November 2018, the Company entered into two separate 24-month unsecured loans each with an 8% annual interest rate with a former director and shareholder for a total of $474,864.  As of March 31, 2021, all loans with Benjamin Atkins have matured.

In May 2018, the Company entered into two separate unsecured promissory notes (the “Traunch Four Note” and the “Rivers Note”) for a total of $12.0 million. The Traunch Four Note is held by Traunch Four, LLC, an entity whose direct and indirect owners include Kim Rivers, the Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Board, as well as Thad Beshears, Richard May, George Hackney, all of whom are directors of Trulieve, and certain of Richard May’s family members. The Rivers Note is held by Kim Rivers. Each promissory note has a 24-month maturity and 12% annual interest rate. The two unsecured promissory notes were amended in March 2021 to extend the maturity one year to May 2022, all other terms remain unchanged.

Balance Sheet Exposure

At March 31, 2021 and 2020, 100% of our balance sheet is exposed to U.S. cannabis-related activities. We believe our operations are in material compliance with all applicable state and local laws, regulations, and licensing requirements in the states in which we operate. However, cannabis remains illegal under U.S. federal law. Substantially all our revenue is derived from U.S. cannabis operations. For information about risks related to U.S. cannabis operations, please refer to “Risk Factors” in this prospectus.

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

Except as set forth below, there are no actual or to our knowledge contemplated legal proceedings material to us or to which any of our or any of our subsidiaries’ property is the subject matter.

On December 30, 2019, a securities class-action complaint, David McNear v. Trulieve Cannabis Corp. et al., Case No. 1:19-cv-07289, was filed against us in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. On February 12, 2020, a second securities class-action complaint, Monica Acerra v. Trulieve Cannabis Corp. et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-00775, which is substantially similar to the complaint filed on December 30, 2019, was filed against us in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Both complaints name Trulieve, Kim Rivers, and Mohan Srinivasan as defendants for allegedly making materially false and misleading statements regarding our previously reported financial statements and public statements about our business, operations, and prospects. The complaint alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The complaints sought unspecified damages, costs, attorneys’ fees, and equitable relief. On March 20, 2020, the Court consolidated the two related actions under In re Trulieve Cannabis Corp. Securities Litigation, No. 1:19-cv-07289, and appointed William Kurek, John Colomara, David McNear, and Monica Acerra as Lead Plaintiffs. The Company believes that the suit is immaterial and that the claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend against them.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

There have been no material changes to the risk factors disclosed in the 2020 Form 10-K.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

Stock Option Grants

On January 4, 2021, prior to the effectiveness of our initial registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and our becoming subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, we issued to certain employees, directors, and consultants’ options to purchase an aggregate of 326,872 Subordinate Voting Shares, of which, as of March 31, 2021, none had been exercised, none had been forfeited and 326,872remained outstanding at a weighted average exercise price of $33.42 per share.

The stock options issued as described in this Item 2 were issued pursuant to written compensatory plans or arrangements with our employees, directors and consultants, in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Rule 701 promulgated under the Securities Act or the exemption set forth in Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act and Regulation D promulgated thereunder relative to transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering. All recipients either received adequate information about us or had access, through employment or other relationships, to such information.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Arrangement Agreement and Plan of Arrangement, holders of Harvest Voting Shares will receive 0.1170 of a subordinate voting share of the Company (each a “Company Subordinate Voting Share”), subject to adjustment as described below (the “Exchange Ratio”), for each Harvest Voting Share outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement (the “Effective Time”), with the Super Voting Shares and Multiple Voting Shares treated on an as if converted basis to Subordinate Voting Shares pursuant to their respective terms; provided, the Exchange Ratio may potentially be adjusted upon the occurrence of certain permitted Harvest debt re-financings.  The Arrangement is intended to qualify as a reorganization for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

At the Effective Time, (i) all Harvest equity awards granted under Harvest’s equity incentive plan that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be adjusted so that upon exercise, the holder will be entitled to receive Company Subordinate Voting Shares, with the number of shares underlying such award adjusted based on the Exchange Ratio, (ii) each of the warrants to acquire Subordinate Voting Shares issued by Harvest on May 10, 2019 and on December 30, 2020 that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be exercisable, in accordance with the terms, for Company Subordinate Voting Shares, after adjustments to reflect the Arrangement and to account for the Exchange Ratio; (iii) each of the warrants to acquire Multiple Voting Shares issued by Harvest on April 23, 2020 that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be exercisable, in accordance with the terms, for Company Subordinate Voting Shares, after adjustments to reflect the Arrangement and to account for the Exchange Ratio; and (iv) all remaining warrants to acquire Subordinate Voting Shares issued by Harvest that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be exchanged into warrants of the Company to acquire Company Subordinate Voting Shares after adjustments to reflect the Arrangement and to account for the Exchange Ratio.

Conditions to the Arrangement

The Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions, including the approval by at least 66 2/3% of the holders of the Harvest Voting Shares (“Harvest Voting Shareholders”) represented in person or by proxy at a special meeting of Harvest Voting Shareholders (the “Meeting”), voting together as a single class, and if required by applicable law, approval by a majority of the holders of Harvest Voting Shares represented at the Meeting in person or by proxy, excluding the votes of those persons whose votes are required to be excluded under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.  It is a condition to closing in favor of the Company that holders of less than 5% of the outstanding Harvest Voting Shares shall have validly exercised dissent rights with respect to the Arrangement that have not been withdrawn as of the effective date of the Arrangement.

In addition, the Arrangement is subject to approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia (or any other court with appropriate jurisdiction) at a hearing upon the procedural and substantive fairness of the terms and conditions of the Arrangement and certain regulatory approvals, including the approval under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended.  The Arrangement is also conditional upon the approval, subject to customary conditions, of the listing of the Company Subordinate Voting Shares issuable pursuant to the Arrangement on the Canadian Securities Exchange.  The Arrangement Agreement may be terminated

by mutual written consent of the Company and Harvest and by either party in certain circumstances as more particularly set forth in the Arrangement Agreement.

Certain Other Terms of the Arrangement Agreement

The Arrangement Agreement includes customary representations, warranties and covenants of Trulieve and Harvest and each party has agreed to customary covenants, including, among others, covenants relating to the conduct of its business during the interim period between execution of the Arrangement Agreement and the Effective Time

The Arrangement Agreement provides for customary non-solicitation covenants, subject to the right of the board of directors of Harvest (the “Board”) to consider and accept a superior proposal (as defined in the Arrangement Agreement), and the right of the Company to match any such proposal within five business days. The Arrangement Agreement also provides for the payment by Harvest to the Company of a $100,000,000 termination fee if the Arrangement Agreement is terminated in certain specified circumstances, including, among other things, in the event that (i) the Board withholds, withdraws, modifies or qualifies any of its recommendations or determinations with respect to the special resolution approving the Arrangement; (ii) the Board, in accordance with certain procedures set forth in the Arrangement Agreement,  accepts, recommends, approves or enters into an agreement to implement a superior proposal (as defined in the Arrangement Agreement), or (iii) the Arrangement Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances, including in the event the resolution approving the Arrangement is not approved by Harvest Voting Shareholders, the Arrangement is not consummated on or prior to February 28, 2022 (subject to modification by the parties and extension in certain circumstances), or in the event Harvest willfully failed to fulfill or comply with all covenants contained in the Arrangement Agreement required to be fulfilled or complied with it on or prior to the effective time of the Arrangement, and if (x) prior to the date of termination an acquisition proposal meeting certain requirements has been publicly announced or otherwise communicated to Harvest, and (y) within 12 months of the date of such termination the transaction is completed or Harvest has entered into a definitive agreement with respect to such transaction and such transaction is later consummated or effected (whether or not within such 12 month period).  The Arrangement Agreement also provides for the payment by the Company to Harvest of a $100,000,000 termination fee if the Arrangement Agreement is terminated due to the fact that the Arrangement is not consummated on or prior to February 28, 2022 (subject to modification by the parties and extension in certain circumstances) solely due to the failure to obtain certain required regulatory approvals.

In the event the Arrangement has not been completed on or before February 28, 2022, the Company has agreed to lend Harvest $25,000,000.  In addition, the Company has agreed to lend Harvest an additional amount of $25,000,000 on each of May 31, 2022, August 31, 2022 and November 30, 2022 if the Arrangement has not been completed by the business day preceding each of those respective dates.  Such loans will be subject to acceleration in certain customary or to be negotiated events, which include termination of the Arrangement Agreement in order to enter into an alternative transaction agreement for a superior proposal.

Voting Support Agreements

Pursuant to certain voting support and lock-up agreements (the “Voting Support Agreements”), certain Harvest Voting Shareholders holding an aggregate of more than 50% of the voting power of the Harvest Voting Shares have entered into the Voting Support Agreements with the Company, pursuant to which they have agreed to vote in favor of the Arrangement at the Meeting.  The Voting Support Agreements terminate in certain circumstances, including upon the termination of the Arrangement Agreement in accordance with its terms.  Under the Arrangement Agreement, Harvest has agreed to hold the Meeting no later than September 15, 2021.

The foregoing descriptions of the Arrangement Agreement and Voting Support Agreements do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of those agreements which are included as Exhibits 2.1, 10.1 and 10.2 to this report. The Arrangement Agreement has been included to provide investors with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company or Harvest. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Arrangement Agreement were made only for purposes of the Arrangement Agreement as of the specific dates therein, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Arrangement Agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Arrangement Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. Investors are not third-party beneficiaries under the Arrangement Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the parties thereto or any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject

matter of representations and warranties may change after the date of the Arrangement Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.

The Company anticipates that the securities to be issued to the security holders of Harvest pursuant to the Arrangement will be issued in a transaction exempt from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) thereof.
