LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)– MedMen Enterprises Inc. (“MedMen” or the “Company”) (CSE: MMEN) (OTCQX: MMNFF), a premier cannabis retailer with operations across the United States, continues to make progress in its restructuring efforts. Efforts to date have been effective, resulting in a return to positive adjusted EBITDA and a 34% reduction in payroll costs across its retail locations, cultivation centers, and corporate headquarters in the most recently reported quarter. Along with right sizing the expense structure, the Company continues to make progress on localization of store assortments and improving the product quality and profitability of its cultivation centers. Implementation later this spring of a new POS system and loyalty platform will drive increased store efficiencies as well as significantly more meaningful customer engagement.
Today the Company announced it has retained ATB Capital Markets Inc. (“ATB”) to assist in the strategic review and potential sale of one or more of the Company’s non-core assets in Arizona, Illinois, and Nevada. ATB will assist MedMen in evaluating opportunities to divest certain retail and cultivation assets in order to bolster liquidity and maximize shareholder value with an asset-light model.
Assets under strategic review include:
- Arizona: vertically integrated operations comprising of one dispensary located in Scottsdale and a 20,000 sq. ft. cultivation and production facility located in Mesa
- Illinois: two dispensaries located in Oak Park and Morton Grove
- Nevada: two dispensaries located in Las Vegas
For more information on the strategic review, please email ATB at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This article contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. All statements that are not historical facts, including without limitation, statements regarding future estimates, plans, programs, forecasts, projections, objectives, assumptions, expectations or beliefs regarding future performance are “forward-looking statements”. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “expects”, “does not expect”, “is expected”, “believes”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “does not anticipate”, “believes” or variations of these words, expressions or statements, that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be” taken, will occur or will be realized. Such forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and other known and unknown factors that could cause actual results, events or developments to differ materially from the results, events or developments expected and expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, dependence on obtaining and maintaining regulatory approvals, including the acquisition and renewal of federal, provincial, state, municipal, local or other licenses, and any inability to obtain all necessary government authorizations, licenses and permits to operate and expand the Company’s facilities; regulatory or policy changes such as changes in applicable laws and regulations, including federal, state and provincial legalization, due to fluctuations in public opinion, industry perception of integrative mental health, including the use of psychedelic-assisted therapy, delays or inefficiencies or any other reason; any other factor or development likely to hamper the growth of the market; the Company’s limited operating and profitability track record; dependence on management; the Company’s need for additional financing and the effects of financial market conditions and other factors on the availability of capital; competition, including that of more established and better funded competitors; the impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict on the global economy; the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; and the need to build and maintain alliances and partnerships, including with research and development companies, customers and suppliers. These factors should be carefully considered, and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Despite the Company’s efforts to identify the main risk factors that could cause actual measures, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, other risk factors may cause measures, events or developments to materially differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake to revise forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available as a result of future events, new facts or any other reason, except as required by applicable laws
