Property appraised at approximately $2.4 million is currently leased to licensed Medical Marijuana Dispensary
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2015 -- Medican Enterprises Inc. (MDCN), a company seeking promising pharmaceutical and other business opportunities in the emerging medical and recreational marijuana sector, announced that it has entered into a purchase agreement to acquire a 7,200 square foot retail and commercial property in Phoenix, Arizona.
The property is currently leased through August 2018 to an Arizona state licensed medical marijuana dispensary. Per the purchase agreement, the lease agreement will be assigned to Medican. The rental amount of the current lease is in excess of $200,000 annually, triple net. The lease provides for two five-year tenant renewal options. The lease rate increases at 3 percent per year or CPI, whichever is greater.
Total purchase price for the property is $2,250,000, which Medican expects to pay through a combination of mortgage debt and an $850,000 convertible promissory note secured by the property. The property's value has been appraised at $2,385,000 and was substantiated by an independent appraiser, Kalinowski & Associates.
The closing for the purchase of this property is expected to occur on or before January 31, 2015 and if the closing occurs as anticipated, it would mark Medican's entry into the dispensary leasing business, which is one of the marijuana sector related business opportunities that Medican is exploring.
"We are pleased with the valuation at which we plan to consummate this cornerstone transaction for our leasing business, and we have identified several more strategic real estate assets in the United States where the production and sale of marijuana is legal and licensed," stated Ken Williams, CEO of Medican Enterprises. "Medican is committed to maximizing shareholder value by effectively assessing and managing new and existing leasing and other potential marijuana-related business opportunities. In addition, we continue our due diligence and evaluation process of several opportunities in Canada – a market estimated to grow to more than CAN$1.3 billion over the next 10 years."
