TALLAHASSEE – Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL) (OTC: TCNNF), today announced the launch of a marketed public offering of Trulieve’s subordinated voting shares in the United States and Canada (the “Offering”). The Company is offering to sell 4,400,440 subordinate voting shares in an underwritten public offering. In addition, Trulieve intends to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 660,066 subordinate voting shares at the public offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions. The Offering will be conducted through a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity LLC, as sole book-running manager. The Offering is subject to market conditions and there can be no assurance as to whether or when the Offering may be completed or as to the actual size or terms of the Offering.
