After quarter end, we successfully completed the transformative acquisition of Grassroots, expanding our presence into 6 new states, including the high-growth Illinois and Pennsylvania markets. The closing of Grassroots affirms our position as the world's largest cannabis company when measured by both revenue and operating presence. Overall, Curaleaf remains well positioned for continued growth in the second half of 2020. This growth will be driven by organic initiatives, the integrations of the Select and Grassroots businesses, as well as, the closing of multiple strategic tuck-in acquisitions across a number of key states."

Mike Carlotti, Chief Financial Officer of Curaleaf, added "Our top-line growth drove record adjusted EBITDA and an improved adjusted EBITDA margin. The strength of our balance sheet has allowed us to invest in our base business and opportunistically pursue additional strategic acquisitions. Looking forward, we anticipate a continued rise in managed revenue and adjusted EBITDA leading to strong sequential growth in the third quarter and second half of 2020 driven by organic growth, continued investment in key states, as well as, the integration of Select, Grassroots, Arrow and BlueKudu into our portfolio. Finally, we continue to make progress in converting and consolidating our managed entities in Maine, New Jersey and Massachusetts. As of today, we have consolidated all of our managed entities except for ATG which we expect to consolidate in the third quarter."
