Irvine, California, UNITED STATES


SANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unrivaled Brands, Inc. (OTCQX: UNRV) ("Unrivaled" or the "Company") today announced that its CEO Frank Knuettel and General Counsel Joe Segilia will join a panel discussion titled, “Hot Topics in Cannabis:  Do’s and Don'ts in a M&A Transaction” in the cannabis industry, including banking, legal, and CEO perspectives.

A typical M&A deal is full of hoops and hurdles imposed by the regulatory community, and a cannabis transaction adds even more layers of regulation. The webinar will offer tips and guidance from the perspective of a CEO, in-house and external legal counsel and banker about navigating the challenges that may impact a successful M&A transaction in the cannabis industry. This lively and thought-provoking discussion will include first-hand experiences and timely examples relevant to the cannabis sector.  

When:

Wednesday, February 16
11:00 A.M. – 12:00 Noon ET 

To participate: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIodO2vqTMqGtOCRopA0dp_YixNg-o3kx70

Topics may include:

  • Cannabis company governance and processes are often times woeful, so diligence is even more important than in most M&A transactions
  • Impact of 280(e) on cash flows and appropriateness of expense allocation for tax reporting purposes related thereto
  • Management of capital raising to facilitate M&A transactions
  • The license transfer process is critical -- without it, there is no value to the acquisition
  • Complete investigation of state and local rules with respect to operations 

The webinar will provide a practical, how-to approach for understanding how a M&A deal is done for the cannabis industry.
