In connection with the acquisition, ATG's dispensaries located in Amesbury, Salisbury and Salem have been spun off and continue to operate under the ATG brand.

The Company dispensary footprint includes two adult-use locations in Provincetown and Ware, a co-located medical and adult-use dispensary in Oxford, and a medical dispensary in Hanover.
