Another company now looking to benefit from the Farm Bill hype is Marimed Inc (OTCMKTS:MRMD). Frankly, this has been one of the most dramatic outperformers in the cannabis patch over the past year and has started to finally correct in earnest. It could be an interesting pullback opportunity as the action plays out. The most recent interesting announcement out of the company came a couple weeks ago when Marimed announced that Navy Capital Green Fund, LP, made a $14.725 million investment in MariMed in November 2018 (some of which was reported in MariMed’s last 8K SEC filing). According to the release, Navy Capital is the first US-based Long/Short Equity Hedge Fund dedicated solely to the legal cannabis industry.
“Navy Capital’s $14.7 million investment in MariMed reflects our belief that MariMed is one of the best-managed multi-state cannabis operators in the United States,” said Sean Stiefel, Navy Capital portfolio manager. “This investment will help MariMed grow its best-in-class cannabis facilities. We are very impressed with the company, and have participated in three financings since we first met MariMed CEO Bob Fireman and his team.”
