On April 14, 2022, Blue Orca Capital (“Blue Orca”) published a short report on IIPR, which it described as “a marijuana bank masquerading as a REIT.” The Blue Orca reported asserted, among other things, that “[i]n the last 17 months . . . IIPR’s loan book appears to have degraded significantly as the sector has become more competitive and IIPR stretched for lower quality tenants in search of continuing growth”, that “IIPR’s largest tenant is a failed SPAC that appears to be in severe financial distress and was recently sued by investors”, and that “[u]nlike with other REITs, IIPR cannot expect to recover the lost income from defaulting tenants because it appears that the actual values of its properties are substantially below their carrying value on IIPR’s balance sheet.” 

On this news, IIPR’s stock price fell $13.76, or 7.50% to close at $169.68 per share on April 15, 2022.
