POSaBit won’t match higher bid for Akerna’s marijuana software business

Akerna Corp. backed out of an agreement to sell its marijuana software businesses for $4 million to POSaBit Systems Corp. after a new bidder emerged.

POSaBit, which offers payment solutions to the cannabis industry, was notified Friday that Akerna terminated the deal after a third-party proposal for the acquired companies is likely to bring in “a superior offer under the definitive agreement,” according to a news release.

The third party was not identified.

POSaBit, based in Kirkland, Washington, said it will not increase its offer to match the higher bidder.

Denver-based Akerna’s three businesses on the shopping block include:

MJ Freeway, a marijuana point-of-sale platform. Leaf Data Systems, a seed-to-sale tracking software for U.S. cannabis markets. Ample Organics, a seed-to-sale tracking software for the Canadian market.

The new bid for Akerna’s software assets will delay the company’s exodus
