The record created, “In the last 18 months, we believe IIPR’s lending publication shows up to have actually broken down substantially as the market has actually come to be much more affordable as well as IIPR went for reduced top quality lessees trying to find proceeding development. IIPR’s biggest occupant is an unsuccessful SPAC that shows up in extreme monetary distress as well as was just recently taken legal action against by financiers charging it of protections fraudulence as well as holding a Ponzi plan.” Environment-friendly Market Record discussed this direct exposure just recently when it revealed the degree to which IIP depends upon rental fee from Identical Marijuana.
The record took place to state, “Unlike with various other REITs, IIPR can not anticipate to recuperate the lost earnings from skipping lessees due to the fact that it shows up that the real worths of its residential or commercial properties are considerably listed below their lugging worth on IIPR’s annual report. IIPR’s supply has actually currently valued in durable take-home pay development in FY 2022, implying a repricing is most likely offered the danger of default at its main occupant as well as the wearing away basics of various other IIPR profile firms.”
Past the problems with Identical Marijuana, Blue Whale additionally indicates Kings Yard stating, “IIPR’s second biggest occupant is a personal The golden state marijuana business, Kings Yard. In Might 2021, its founder filed a claim against Kings Yard as well as its execs declaring illegal as well as deceptive conduct relative to Kings Yard’s monetary, governing as well as tax obligation coverage.

subject to the monetary health and wellness of its occupant profile as well as the capability of its marijuana firms to remain to pay high lease prices over the following 15-20 years. We believe dropping share rates as well as wearing away financials among IIPR’s customers must create financiers to reprice IIPR’s shares, offered the placing dangers to its lasting lending publication.”
IIP claimed the record was so problematic it did not require a feedback however provided one anyhow. The business claimed, “Specifically, it is IIP’s viewpoint that this short-seller stops working to have any kind of understanding of the range of substantial facilities renovations that are required for the change of a common commercial structure to a mission-critical center with the improved environmental protections as well as various other structure systems essential for controlled marijuana growing as well as handling. Furthermore, the authors do not recognize the procedure that IIP utilizes for financing those renovations, which any kind of IIP repayments connect just to confirmed, certified renovations to the structures for these functions, as well as never ever as financing for any kind of sort of “lending” to be used for any kind of various other function.”
Blue Whale lastly kept in mind, “We consider Identical as the canary in the coal mine– demonstrative of wider danger that our team believe exists throughout much of IIPR’s profile; lasting leases made to reduced credit report top quality lessees with substantial disadvantage in case of default”
