XS Financial Inc. (“XS Financial”, “XSF” or the “Company”) (CSE:XSF) (OTCQB:XSHLF), a specialty finance company providing CAPEX and equipment financing solutions to cannabis companies in the United States, announced today that it has entered into a new lease agreement with Green Dragon / Eaze, a vertically integrated multi-state operator and Eaze, the nation’s largest cannabis delivery marketplace. All amounts are in U.S. dollars.
Green Dragon / Eaze has been approved for a $15M CAPEX lease facility, with an immediate drawdown of over $2M to purchase equipment with up to 60-month terms. This equipment acquisition will enhance the capabilities of existing processing facilities and buildouts for their Colorado and Florida expansion.
Trey Handley, CFO of Green Dragon / Eaze commented: “The team at XS Financial has been great to work with from underwriting to funding. The XS facility allows us to draw on CAPEX funds, as needed, for our expansion in Florida and Colorado without incurring any unused line fees. Additionally, with their sale-leaseback program, we could unlock existing investments on previously purchased equipment. Having access to non-dilutive financing is a huge win for our shareholders.
Eaze delivers good with the goods. As the nation’s largest legal cannabis marketplace, we bring enjoyment and convenience to our customers, break down barriers to access, and cultivate community in everything we do. With over 7.8 million cannabis deliveries to date, we are committed to creating a more diverse and sustainable industry through our Momentum business accelerator and Social Equity Partners Program.
