CANADA: Aurora Cannabis announced today that the Company has filed an application to list its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange.
Listing of the Company’s common shares on the NYSE remains subject to the approval of the NYSE and the satisfaction of all applicable listing and regulatory requirements. Aurora anticipates that, subject to receipt of all required approvals, trading in its common shares on the NYSE will commence before the end of October 2018. In advance of the intended listing, the Company has filed a Form 40-F Registration Statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
Aurora’s shares will trade on the NYSE under ticker symbol “ACB”, the same symbol the Company’s common shares currently, and will continue to, trade under on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Aurora will also continue to trade on the OTCQX under the ticker symbol “ACBFF” until completion of the NYSE listing. Upon receipt of all required approvals and completion of the formal listing process, the Company will publicly announce its first trading date on the NYSE. Aurora furthermore intends to voluntarily delist its shares from the OTCQX at such time.
“Through our NYSE listing, Aurora joins an established group of mature global brands with improved access and exposure to an engaged international institutional investor audience,” said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. “Aurora’s high-paced execution has made it one of the world’s leading cannabis companies. We have grown from being a licensed producer with a single facility, to a horizontality differentiated and vertically integrated global organization with a funded production capacity in excess of 500,000 kg a year, sales and operations on five continents, and a team of more than 1,500 employees.”
Mr. Booth added: “Our purpose-built, indoor grow facilities, designed to meet the stringent requirements for furnishing product to international markets, have made Aurora the largest supplier of medical cannabis in Europe. We are also well-prepared for the launch of the domestic adult consumer use market in Canada with a portfolio of strong consumer brands and coast-to-coast provincial supply arrangements covering 98% of the Canadian population. I am proud of our achievements to date, and look forward to updating the investor community as we continue to execute on our aggressive growth strategy.”
