(“Jushi” or the “Company”) (CSE: JUSH) (OTCMKTS: JUSHF), a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator, announced today that due to the Company’s Auditor likely not completing its audit procedures in advance of April 30, 2021, it will not be in a position to file its audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, the related management’s discussion and analysis, related CEO and CFO certificates, and annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2020 before the required deadline of April 30, 2021.
