A Tough Year
Over the last year, iAnthus has been struggling to secure financing due to the many challenges it has been facing.
In November, the New York-based company announced that Joy Chen had opted to step down as director after serving on the board for a year.
Chen was not the first director to leave the company. In May, 2020, Mark Dowley's had also resigned.
The board shake-ups came on the heels of the departure of co-founder and CEO Hadley Ford, who had been reviewed for supposedly taking out two undisclosed loans, totaling $160,000.
And these are not the only setbacks iAnthus has been experiencing. In June of last year, the company's secure lender – Gotham Green Partners – demanded repayment of more than $160 million in debt.
The multi-state cannabis operator was soon after suspended from trading on the Candian Securities Exchange for not delivering its financial reports on time. The company has since been re-instated.
Shares were trading up by 1.6% at the time of the publication of this article.
