Jushi Europe
The Company’s non-controlling interests as of December 31, 2023 are comprised primarily of the non-controlling interest in Jushi Europe. In March 2020, the Company finalized its agreement to expand internationally through the establishment of Jushi Europe. Jushi Europe planned to build out its European business through a combination of strategic acquisitions, partnerships, and license applications, focused on supplying the highest-quality medical cannabis products to patients throughout Europe. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company received $2,000 in cash from the 49% investor partner. The Company owns 51% of Jushi Europe and is exposed, or has rights, to variable returns from Jushi Europe and has the power to govern the financial and operating policies of Jushi Europe through voting control so as to obtain economic benefits, and therefore the Company has consolidated Jushi Europe from the date of acquisition.
During the fourth quarter of 2020, Jushi Europe entered into a credit agreement with a relative of the Jushi Europe non-controlling partner and received €500 (approximately $614) principal amount. In January 2021, Jushi Europe received €1,000 (approximately $1,214 as of December 31, 2021) principal amount pursuant to a credit agreement with an individual. These credit agreements accrue interest at 5% per annum, payable annually in arrears, and mature on November 11, 2024. The outstanding balance may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity without penalty and may be offset with receivables from the lender. Subsequent to December 31, 2021, it was determined that Jushi Europe was insolvent. The insolvency created an event of default under the unsecured credit agreements of Jushi Europe and the notes became immediately due and payable.
In April 2021, Jushi Europe entered into an unsecured bridge loan with the Company (51% owner) and an investment partner for a total of €1,800 (~$2,141) principal amount, of which €900 (~$1,070) was contributed by the Company and is eliminated in consolidation. In September 2021, the parties amended the loan agreement and an additional €1,200 (~$1,390) in funding was provided for Jushi Europe, of which 51% was contributed by the Company and is eliminated in consolidation. The bridge loans, as amended, currently accrue interest at 0.5% per annum, which is the foreign marginal lending facility rate plus 25 basis points. All payments including interest are due on maturity, which is 180 days post amendment. These loans have not yet been repaid and are delinquent.
In February 2022, Jushi Europe filed a notice of over-indebtedness with the Swiss courts. Accordingly, the Company determined that the assets of Jushi Europe were impaired and recognized an impairment loss of $4,561 for the year ended December 31, 2021. Then, the Swiss courts declared Jushi Europe’s bankruptcy in May 2022. As a result, Jushi Europe updated its corporate name to Jushi Europe SA in liquidation, which is on-going.
In January 2021, the Company acquired the remaining 20% of the equity interests of Agape from the non-controlling shareholders for 500,000 SVS for total estimated fair value of $3,425, based on a market price of $6.85 per share on the date of close. As a result of the transaction, the Company recorded a decrease to non-controlling interests of approximately $1,562. The difference between the fair value of the consideration paid and the amount by which the non-controlling interest is adjusted was recognized in paid-in capital. The Company now owns 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Agape.
