We have been very constructive on Harvest Health & Recreation Inc (OTCMKTS:HRVSF) over the past two weeks given the story and the action in the stock. That last point certainly continues to be quite promising thus far this week, with shares breaking out yet again on Monday. As we see, the action was pushed by an accumulation of factors, rather than a single new revelation. That said, there was a lower level revelation in the mix that should be appreciated – specifically, the company just announced grants of stock options to the tune of a total of 12,350,250 stock options to certain officers, directors, employees or consultants of the Corporation.
According to the release, “Each stock option, granted on March 13, 2019, will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Corporation at a price of CND $10.20 per share (subject to adjustment in accordance with the stock option plan of the Corporation) until March 13, 2029.”

According to that release, “the combined company will be one of the largest multi-state operators (“MSO”) in the U.S., as measured by licenses held and facilities permitted. Upon completion of the transaction and regulatory approval, Harvest will hold licenses that will allow it to operate up to 200 facilities in 16 states and territories across the country, including 123 retail dispensaries.”
