Ich habe heute zwei Nachrichten. Eine finde ich gut, die andere finde ich für mich nicht so beruhigend.
Nun, dies ist die gute Nachricht:
SMITHS FALLS, ON, May 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth" or the "Company") (TSX: WEED) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding agreement (the "Agreement") to purchase, subject to certain conditions, the remaining 33% stake of BC Tweed Joint Venture Inc. ("BC Tweed") not currently owned by the Company. The consolidation of the two largest licensed cannabis facilities in the world into full Canopy Growth ownership cements the Company's commitment to shareholder value through scale production.
Canopy Growth, upon closing of the transaction, will issue up to $374 million worth of shares in the Company, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to the minority shareholders of BC Tweed (the "Operators"). Payments are milestone-based and will be released over four years based upon the achievement of certain production milestones. The Operators, multi-generational cultivators, will continue to manage the BC-based operations for a period of 5 years.
The BC Tweed greenhouses represent a meaningful share of the entire Canadian production landscape with up to 3 million square feet of greenhouse growing capacity. Since the formation of BC Tweed in October of 2017, already over 1.7 million square feet has been licensed for production to meet to oncoming recreational cannabis demand across the country.
"Our provincial distribution agreements, commitment to quality and value-add processing, and leading brand portfolio position Canopy Growth as the market share leader in Canada's future recreational cannabis market," said Bruce Linton, Chairman & CEO, Canopy Growth. "Consolidating BC Tweed fully under the Canopy ensures that the full value of our strategic position is realized by Canopy shareholders."
Under the terms of the Agreement, subject to approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and certain other conditions, the Company will issue $374 million worth of common shares in the capital of the Company based on the volume weighted average price per common share for the 20 trading day period ended May 11, 2018 (the "VWAP"). The Company will also pay $1 million in cash as a non-refundable deposit against the purchase price. In addition, the Company will issue $20 million worth of common shares in the capital of the Company at the same VWAP in connection with an option to acquire certain future infrastructure from the Operators, subject to certain conditions. The transaction is anticipated to close in early July, following the negotiation of definitive agreements.
Und diese hier, naja, ist Vertrauenssache, finde ich.- *dirol*
