Red White & Bloom (CSE: RWB) (OTCQX: RWBYF), a multistate cannabis operator and house of premium brands, has completed a companywide restricting, which resulted in the elimination of $115 million in liabilities and more than $22 million in annual expenses. Highlights of the strategic moves include the completion of the sale of its Granville, Illinois, facility; the repayment of $51.7 million secured debt and the elimination of $6.3 million of annualized debt servicing; and transitioning to an asset-light, brand-rich model that eliminated more than $13 million in associated annual operating expenses, inclusive of $8 million in cash operating costs. In addition, the company streamlined brands, contributing to the potential elimination of more than $60 million in future royalty payment liabilities that will impact the company’s third-quarter 2021 balance sheet.

Today’s announcement is the culmination of an in-depth review and rationalization of assets and operations. We have reduced well over $100 million of liabilities without any dilution to our shareholders and have exited the one state that had not contributed any revenue from THC operations to our results since our inception.”
