Curaleaf Holdings Inc.announced it has signed a deal to acquire Northern Green Canada (NGC)

NEW YORK, March 19, 2024 – PRESS RELEASE – Curaleaf Holdings Inc., a leading international provider of consumer cannabis products, announced it has signed a deal to acquire Northern Green Canada (NGC), a vertically integrated Canadian licensed cannabis producer focused primarily on expanding in the international market through its EU-GMP certification. NGC also partners with Canadian GACP cultivators to produce and distribute finished cannabis products to both the domestic and global markets.

NGC is one of the few Canadian cultivators with EU-GMP certification. As such, NGC has consistently supplied high-THC, non-irradiated flower to the German market, which is expected to see exponential growth following the recent removal of cannabis from the narcotics list. NGC is also increasingly supplying Australia and New Zealand, the world’s fastest-growing cannabis markets.

Given NGC’s longstanding role as a key supplier to Curaleaf’s Four20 brand, this acquisition marks a significant milestone in Curaleaf’s expansion strategy, particularly in Europe. By integrating NGC, Curaleaf can significantly increase its European margins while extending its global footprint across three continents: North America, Europe, and Australasia (Australia/New Zealand).

The deal provides Curaleaf International with secure and consistent high quality indoor EU-GMP flower supply, ensuring the leading position in the growing German market during a critical juncture, while also allowing the company to maintain its leadership position in the U.K. and expand its first-mover advantage into Poland. Further, NGC’s facility has both ample space and regulatory certification available for modular build-out of additional grow rooms, allowing for increased capacity.

Boris Jordan, executive chairman of Curaleaf, said, “We expect the NGC acquisition to be a highly accretive deal that marks Curaleaf’s first step into the Australasian markets, creating a true global cannabis company with global brands. It allows Curaleaf to safeguard our position in Europe, enhancing our supply chain while increasing our margins. The opportunity in Germany alone cannot be understated, and we continue to prepare strategically for that moment and beyond. We are committed to delivering the highest quality flower in every market we operate, and we are thrilled to welcome the NGC team to the Curaleaf International family.”
