SAN JOSE, Calif., July 2, 2021 /CNW/ – TPCO Holding Corp. (“The Parent Company” or the “Company”) (NEO: GRAM.U) (OTCQX: GRAMF), today announced that its previously announced conditional agreement to complete a $50 million strategic investment (the “Strategic Investment”) in GH Group, Inc. (“Glass House”), through a private placement offering by Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp., has been terminated by the parties effective today and the Strategic Investment will not be completed at this time. Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company, recently merged with Glass House.

“In addition to our supply of award-winning, in-house cannabis, we remain well-positioned with sufficient access to both high-quality, low-cost indoor and outdoor-grown cannabis for use in our portfolio of branded products that are sold through our wholesale and direct-to-consumer channels,” said Steve Allan, Chief Executive Officer of The Parent Company. “Glass House is building a robust cultivation footprint in California, and we look forward to working with their team in the future on potential collaborations as we broaden our reach across the State. Looking ahead, we will continue to strategically deploy our capital on high-growth investment opportunities that will solidify our leadership position and offer strong value for our shareholders.”
