Organigram arranges $10-million loan with Farm Credit
ORGANIGRAM HOLDINGS Inc. has secured a loan from Farm Credit Canada (FCC) in the amount of $10-million, which will be used to finance the expansion of the company’s Moncton campus. The debt is for a term of five years at a variable rate of interest, and currently at
6.70 per cent. The debt is secured against certain assets of Organigram. “Organigram is wholly committed to meeting the significant and growing demand for high-quality cannabis across Canada and standing ready to take on new opportunities around the world,” said Greg Engel, chief executive officer, Organigram. “We are very proud to be investing once again in our state-of-the-art facility located here in Moncton, N.B., increasing our production capacity and fostering cannabis growth expertise.”
Recent facility expansion Currently, construction continues as planned on phases 4A and 4B of the company’s
expansion. This expansion will continue to increase Organigram’s production capacity with the additional state-of-the-art grow rooms coming on line in April, 2019 (phase 4A), and August, 2019 (phase 4B), increasing the company’s target production capacity to 62,00 kilograms per year and 89,000 kilograms per year, respectively. “The expansion of our facility represents the exceptional reputation of our team and products in the industry and among customers, and a focused strategic plan to ensure our continued global leadership,” said Mr. Engel. “This increase in target production capacity further demonstrates Organigram’s commitment and ability to support its partners and the growing demand across Canada for high-quality adult recreational and medical products.”
As of Oct. 24, 2018, power officially began flowing from the company’s new substation. Having a peak power capacity of 40 megawatts, this substation will provide much cleaner electrical supply, improve the company’s electrical consumption efficiency and lower the company’s maintenance cost on equipment. “Innovation and technology have always been a cornerstone of Organigram’s success and growth,” said Mr. Engel. “Looking to the future, we continue to identify ways to maximize the efficiency of the
production process and reduce our overall resource consumption.”
