NewLake Capital Partners, Inc. NLCP, a provider of real estate capital to state-licensed cannabis operators, announced its financial results Friday for the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

Based in New Canaan, Connecticut, the company debuted on the OTCQX Best Market under the symbol NLCP on Aug. 20. The net proceeds of approximately $102 million, before deducting placement agent fees and offering expenses, were contributed to its operating partnership, which will use them to acquire New Lake’s target assets.

“We recently funded our first post-IPO investment by deploying $30 million to Hero Diversified Associates, Inc.,” David Weinstein, the company’s CEO revealed. “Importantly, this transaction is indicative of our funding flexibility as we uniquely structured a nine-month senior secured loan that converts to a twenty-year sale-leaseback, unless a specific provision in the loan agreement is satisfied.”
