ATLANTA – UC Asset LP (OTCQX: UCASU) announced the firm has signed LOI with an Oklahoma cannabis property owner and licensed medical marijuana grower, to acquire its property, including all on-ground structures, for a consideration of $2.2 million.
The property is a 4-acre medical marijuana indoor/outdoor property. According to the seller, operation from this property generated a gross annual revenue of about $900,000.
Seller will finance a major part of the transaction by providing a $1.2 million, 3-year loan, which will carry an annual interest of 1.8%. The loan also has a grace period of 6 months.
UC Asset plans to lease the property back to licensed growers, applying a business model similar to those adopted by established public companies, such as Power REIT (NYSE: PW).
“There are only a few real estate investment companies on the public market with significant cannabis properties in their portfolio. And some of these portfolios appear to be very successful despite their short history. We’ve decided to adopt this investment model,” says Greg Bankston, managing general partner of UC Asset.
Among the public companies Bankston referred to is Power REIT. In February 2020, the REIT announced expanding its portfolio in greenhouses for both food and cannabis cultivation. In the 21 months since this announcement, its stock price has soared from $8.45 (February 03,2020) to $63.46 (November 12, 2021), an increase of 750%. According to its most recent report, the company’s quarterly revenue achieved a 133% growth and quarterly net income achieved a 221% growth, by June 30, 2021.
This is the first LOI signed since UC Asset announced its plan to investment in cannabis property investments two month ago. Last month, UC Asset declared that it has developed a deal pipeline for cannabis property investments. The management confirms today that it may sign more LOIs for potential deals in the coming weeks.
