Blum Holdings, Inc., a cannabis company with subsidiaries operating throughout California, announces a significant milestone in its ongoing strategic financial restructuring. On June 10, 2024, Unrivaled Brands, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Blüm Holdings, completed the sale (the “Disposition”) of its controlling membership interest in People’s First Choice LLC (“PFC”) to Haven Nectar LLC (“Haven Nectar”). PFC owns and operates a cannabis retail dispensary campus in Santa Ana, California named Blüm Santa Ana.

Key Highlights of the Disposition

The Disposition marks a significant milestone in the Company’s strategic restructuring plan, which began in August 2022. Based on estimates included in the unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2024 as filed with the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 14, 2024, key highlights of the Disposition and restructuring plan are included below:

  1. $24.8 Million Total Consideration: The consideration includes $9.00 million in cash and $15.84 million in assumption of liabilities.

  2. Debt Extinguishment: All of the cash generated in the Disposition was used to settle debt and litigation. The transaction has extinguished an estimated $44.46 million in liabilities, reducing Blüm Holdings' total debt by over 55%.

  3. Significant Financial Gain: The total estimated gain from the Disposition is $33.98 million, equivalent to $3.09 per common share.

  4. Estimated $90 Million in Total Liability Reduction: This transaction is part of Blüm Holdings' broader restructuring strategy, which has resulted in the reduction of total liabilities by an estimated $90 million since August 2022.

Pursuant to a Trademark License Agreement, Blüm Santa Ana will continue to use the Blüm name in connection with PFC’s business for up to 18 months.
