“The ‘Green Rush’ is officially over and the M&A market in cannabis and hemp has shifted dramatically in the last 12-15 months,” says Scott Hammon, MGO Cannabis Practice Leader. “Where operators flush with capital once raced for market share, we are now seeing a major slow-down as the focus is now on fundamental strength, positive cash flows, and near- and long-term profitability. The Cannabis M&A Field Guide provides perspective on how to maximize value, whether buying or selling, in this emerging growth phase of the cannabis industry.”
The Cannabis M&A Field Guide features ten chapters, each written by members of MGO’s deep roster of cannabis industry service providers, specialists, and thought leaders. Infused with practical insight from MGO team members actively supporting M&A deals, each section tackles an essential element of executing an optimized M&A deal. Topics include M&A strategy, deal structuring, valuations, due diligence, tax implications, real estate considerations, post-deal integration, and the rising impact of SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies).
“Recent economic turmoil has truly changed the game for cannabis and hemp M&A deals,” says Francisco Colon, MGO Transaction Advisory Services Leader and a contributor to the Cannabis M&A Field Guide. “As operators work to expand operations and enter new markets, others are looking to restructure and off-load under-performing assets. This creates a veritable ‘perfect storm’ for M&A deals that will reshape the industry landscape in the next calendar year. Our goal with the Cannabis M&A Guide is to help operators and investor make financially and strategically sound moves that will contribute to the overall strength and durability of the cannabis industry.”
In addition to the free-to-download Cannabis M&A Field Guide, MGO will be rolling out regionally-focused webinars and other content to provide targeted support to operators and investors throughout the United States.
