The cannabis company financed the deal with 80% in stock and 20% in cash.

Monarch, one of Scottsdale’s first dispensaries, opened under MedMen management on Monday and will be rebranded as a MedMen store.

“As we look to operationalize the acquisitions we have made in recent months, our team has focused on timely and seamless transitions,” said CEO Adam Bierman in the company’s press release.

MedMen also operates a 20,000 square foot cultivation and manufacturing facility in Mesa, which distributes branded products to over 60 dispensaries in the state.

The company’s agreement with WhiteStar Solutions LLC grants exclusive co-manufacturing and licensing agreements for other popular brands in Arizona including Kiva, Mirth Provisions, HUXTON and Old Pal.

MedMen views Arizona as one of the largest medical marijuana markets in the US, with more than 180,000 patients, especially with a legalization ballot expected to be introduced again in 2020 after a failed attempt in 2016.

Shares of MedMen slipped more than 5% to C$4.16 in Wednesday morning trading.
