CHICAGO, Feb. 6 / PRNewswire / – Cresco Labs (CSE: CL) (OTCQX: CRLBF) (“Cresco Labs” or “the Company”), a vertically integrated multistate operator and the leading US wholesaler of branded cannabis products, announced announced today the expiry of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (the “HSR Act”), as amended, in relation to the impending acquisition of Cultivate Licensing LLC and BL Real Estate LLC by Cresco Labs (together ” Cultivate “) (the” Transaction “). The waiting period expired without the Cartel Department of the US Department of Justice (DOJ) making a so-called “second application”.

We look forward to completing the remaining steps to close the transaction and look forward to starting working with the Cultivate team later this year. Upon closing, Cresco Labs will immediately achieve a top 3 equity position in Massachusetts, the third market with over $ 1 billion in revenue where we have achieved this status.

We will once again run our game book and demonstrate the growth and leverage that can be achieved by deepening the strategic states.
