Little Green Pharma raises $5 million in placement to retire Canopy debt

Fleta Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of Little Green Pharma

Little Green Pharma Ltd (LGP) announced that it has secured firm commitments for a $5m placement from new and existing institutional and sophisticated investors. The Company’s Managing Director also committed an additional $50,000 to the Placement subject to shareholder approval at an Extraordinary General Meeting to be announced in due course.

What does the funding mean for LGP?

CEO of Little Green Pharma, Fleta Solomon, said: “This a very exciting outcome for Little Green Pharma. The proceeds of the Placement allow us to fully repay the outstanding Loan Note with Canopy Growth Corporation in relation to our 2021 Denmark facility acquisition, which both strengthens our balance sheet and removes associated interest expenses.”

“In addition, the business will use the balance of the funding to continue delivering on its growth trajectory and focus on achieving cash-flow break-even. We are confident the business’s current momentum will allow it to continue growing sales and leveraging domestic and international medicinal cannabis market opportunities,” Fleta Solomon further said.

How will Little Green Pharma use the funds?

Little Green Pharma will use the raised funds from the Placement to repay the balance of the Canopy Loan Note and for working capital and costs of the offer to further its mission.

LGP continues its strong focus on targeting a break-even position, including by executing against its existing and proposed new supply agreements into Europe and driving increased sales in Australia, while identifying ways to right-size and reduce costs in its operations. The removal of the Canopy Loan Note also refreshes LGP’s balance sheet for future growth.
