The team at DaVinci shares our commitment to providing curated, convenient experiences to consumers, and we look forward to welcoming them to Greenlane and to working together to bring more innovative products to our customers."

The acquisition, subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. Upon completion, it is expected to be immediately accretive to Greenlane's revenue and earnings.

"At DaVinci we have been committed to approaching product development with vision and imagination, and we are thrilled to join Greenlane as strong partners in innovation,” Cortney Smith, founder and CEO of DaVinci said in a statement. “We are excited to join a team that shares our drive to harness new and changing technologies to engineer consumer experiences that align with the evolving needs of a dynamic, growing cannabis industry."
