Canada: Canopy Growth acquires Mettrum
The total transaction is valued at approximately C$430 million and will be satisfied by the issuance of common shares in Canopy Growth.
“From day one, Canopy Growth has viewed production capacity, brand diversity, and highly-‐skilled management as the foundational aspects of our business,” said Bruce Linton, Chairman and CEO of Canopy Growth. “Mettrum has established a line of cannabis products that work well in a medical context and will transition naturally into a natural and healthy lifestyle market. Their substantial production facilities will add to our growing production platform as we expand to meet the needs of patients, and their experienced personnel will help Canopy Growth drive our vision forward to the next level.”
Added Linton: “Both Canopy Growth and Mettrum have proven themselves with Canadian patients; and together we intend to make our industry-leading product and service offering even stronger, while developing our common hemp objectives.”
“Canopy Growth and Mettrum have enjoyed a collaborative industry relationship working on a number of patient and industry advocacy efforts,” said Michael Haines, CEO of Mettrum. “Combining our companies’ complimentary market strengths, and management expertise, should result in a more dynamic company well-‐positioned for emerging recreational and international opportunities.”
