“One year into our ambitious restructuring strategy, the decisions we’re making have enabled us to eliminate millions in debt, and secured rights to advance the Lowell brand, positioning ourselves for growth and success,” Chairperson Ann Lawrence said. “The completion of this deal allows the company to refocus on expanding our portfolio while continuing to build strong partnerships within the California cannabis market.”
