TORONTO, ONTARIO – July 22, 2021 — Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) (“Flora”, “Flora Growth”, or the “Company”), an all-outdoor cultivator and manufacturer of cannabis-derived products and brands, is pleased to announce that after conducting an exhaustive review process the Company plans to relocate its headquarters to Miami, Florida by Q1 2022.
The Company has narrowed down its search to Miami’s downtown core, specifically the Brickell financial district, one of the fastest-growing destinations in the United States. The new location is expected to be markedly larger than its current office space in Toronto, Ontario, and will provide Flora with much-needed space to accommodate its significant growth and attract top-tier talent.
“As part of our long-term strategic growth plans, we assembled an evaluation committee and undertook a comprehensive site review process that considered a number of diverse criteria, underpinned by our focus on developing global growth opportunities,” said Luis Merchan, President and CEO of Flora Growth. “Concentrating on the specific requirements of our business both now and in the future, we honed in on eight cities located across the US, with an emphasis on travel & logistics (including time zone), business climate (state corporate tax rate and receptiveness to the cannabis industry), and personal life factors (including talent pool and cost-of-living) in order to effectively conduct our analysis. Ultimately, our due diligence process ended with us selecting Miami as our preferred city to establish our roots. We are very excited to invest in and build a deeper rapport with the Miami business community, and to foster new collaborative and innovative opportunities through our new head office.”
The new space will reflect the forward-thinking culture of Flora and is expected to be a phenomenal place to work, as well as to visit and. learn about its global divisions and brands. The office space will feature technology-enabled conference rooms and hot desk solutions where team members can collaborate on solutions with colleagues, customers, partners, and offsite employees around the world. Flora will continue to retain an administrative office in Toronto, Ontario.
