Indus Holdings, Inc. Announces Preliminary Expansion Plans
The Company takes first step in its expansion with the addition of a 300,000 sq. ft. facility within Monterey County
SALINAS, Calif., Nov. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Indus Holdings, Inc. ("Indus” or the “Company”) (CSE:INDS; OTCQX: INDXF), a leading, vertically-integrated,
California-focused cannabis company, announced that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to lease a neighboring facility to host expanded cultivation operations. The LOI contemplates a
20-year lease with a 5-year extension option.
“This contemplated expansion is not just another leg in our journey towards becoming the largest producer in American cannabis” said Indus Holdings Chairman George Allen. “It is also about collecting all our IP along with recent horticultural and technological developments into a purpose-built facility that will yield a wider variety of flower for the world’s most discerning customers.”
Indus has selected the facility for its scale, existing attributes and lease economics. The facility is 300,000 square feet which will more than double our cultivation footprint when operational. The Company anticipates that the facility will contribute upwards of 50,000 lbs of annual flower production capacity when fully operational. In order to retrofit the facility for this volume level the Company anticipates that it will take approximately 12 months to bring the facility online in preparation for a 2022 first harvest.
The facility is located nearby to our other Monterey County operations and is currently partially licensed for cannabis operations. The arrangement is subject to further diligence as well as the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements, and there is no guarantee that the Company and the landlord will reach final agreement on the terms of the lease contemplated in the LOI.
