We’ve witnessed 2% tacked on to share pricing for the listing in the past week. Furthermore, the stock has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing 18% beyond what we have been seeing over the larger time frame.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, commented, ”The planned sale of BlÃ¼m Desert Inn is the first milestone in our restructuring strategy which is focused on leveraging our balance sheet to fuel growth, rather than accessing the capital markets on a regular basis. The valuation of the Desert Inn Road location has increased significantly since we opened the dispensary. By selling the location we will strategically monetize this asset and lock in these returns. We plan to redeploy the additional capital generated by this sale toward more productive assets in California. These additional funds make us well positioned to build on our strong momentum through increased investments in infrastructure and sales and marketing.”
