Description of the Business

Local Bounti Corporation ("Local Bounti" or "the Company") is redefining indoor farming with an innovative method – its proprietary Stack & Flow Technology™ – that significantly improves crop turns, increases output and improves unit economics. We grow healthy food utilizing a hybrid approach that integrates the best attributes of controlled environment agriculture with natural elements. Our sustainable growing methods are better for the planet, using 90% less land and 90% less water than conventional farming methods. With a mission to 'bring our farm to your kitchen in the fewest food miles possible,' Local Bounti’s food is fresher, more nutritious, and lasts 3-5 times longer than traditional agriculture.

On March 14, 2022, the Company entered into definitive purchase agreements to acquire California-based complementary indoor farming company Hollandia Produce Group, Inc., which operates under the name Pete’s® ("Pete's"), for total consideration of $122.5 million, subject to customary adjustments (the "Pete's Acquisition"). On April 4, 2022, Company completed the Pete's Acquisition pursuant to the terms and conditions of the purchase agreements. Pursuant to the purchase agreements, Pete’s and its subsidiaries became wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company.

Pete’s is a California-based indoor farming company with three greenhouse growing facilities, including two operating facilities in California and one under construction in Georgia which is scheduled to begin operations in the second quarter of 2022. Pete’s has distribution to approximately 10,000 retail locations across 35 U.S. states and Canadian provinces, primarily through direct relationships with blue-chip retail customers, including Albertsons, Kroger, Target, Walmart, as well as Whole Foods and AmazonFresh. Pete’s primary products include living butter lettuce – where it is a leading provider with an approximate 80 percent share of the controlled environment agriculture ("CEA") market within the Western U.S. – as well as packaged salad and cress.
