Curaleaf announced today the closing of its acquisition of Northern Green Canada (NGC), a vertically integrated Canadian licensed cannabis producer focused primarily on expanding in the international market through its EU-GMP certification. The acquisition amplifies the company's strategic advantage in established European markets including Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom and provides a foothold in the emerging markets of Australia and New Zealand.

Integrating NGC's international operation will equip Curaleaf with a secure, non-irradiated, indoor EU-GMP flower supply, essential to maintaining its positions in Germany, the United Kingdom and Poland.

The global cannabis market is projected to generate $55 billion in sales by 2027. Emerging markets beyond the United States and Canada, including Germany, Australia and New Zealand are expected to contribute $6.3 billion of the $55 billion projection.

Terms of the acquisition of NGC include an initial payment at closing of the Company's Subordinate Voting Shares valued at approximately US $16 million, subject to a typical post-closing adjustment. An earnout may also be paid in 2025 based upon 2024 performance of NGC's operations, up to 50% of which will be cash and the rest paid in additional Subordinate Voting Shares. The issuance of Subordinate Voting Shares in connection with the acquisition of NGC has been conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange, subject to fulfilling customary listing conditions.
