Why is Hiku Brands Surging High?
Canopy Growth has entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition of all outstanding shares of Hiku Brands Company. Under the terms of the agreement Hiku brands, shareholders are to receive 0.046 shares of a Canopy Growth share in exchange for each share held. The acquisition prices represent a 33% premium to the stock 20-day volume weighted average weight price.
“This Transaction represents an incredible step in the Hiku journey that both realize immediate benefits for our shareholders and at the same time provides an unparalleled opportunity to join forces with a preeminent global cannabis player,” said CEO Alan Gartner.
The acquisition should go a long way in strengthening Canopy Growth diversity and range of brands in addition to providing it with access to various demographic segments. The two should also be able to leverage each other portfolio of established brands through retail stores distributed across the country.
Sales Supply Agreements
Amidst the signing of the merger agreement, Hiku Brands continues to strengthen its distribution channel as it continues to explore new sales avenues. The company has since entered into a supply agreement with Ontario Cannabis Store for the supply of branded cannabis online.
The agreement will come into effect on October 17, 2018, and will provide Hiku Brands with access to 25 SKUs for sale in the Ontario market. The cannabis products on offer will be available in various formats ranging from raw flower, oils, and pre-rolls.
According to the Chief executive officer, Alan Gartner, the agreements affirm the company’s drive to become the first vertically integrated cannabis company with state of the art grow facilities. The supply agreement should go a long way in strengthening the company’s retail footprint.
“With a growing number of retail stores, the potential of Tokyo Smoke cannabis stores in Ontario, our increased grow facility space, additional supply agreements across the country, and strategic investments in Canada and beyond, Hiku is poised to be a leader in the adult-use cannabis sector,” said Mr. Garner.
In addition to the Ontario Cannabis Store agreement, the company has also signed a supply agreement with British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch. Under the terms of the agreement, the company is to start supplying cannabis for adult use once legalization comes into effect in October. The agreement follows the similar agreement in Manitoba as well as with Tokyo Smoke.
