INTRODUCING CANOPY USA
A transformative strategy to unleash the full potential of Canopy’s U.S. ecosystem:
- Creating a new, U.S. holding company structure called Canopy USA, LLC (“Canopy USA”) and assigning ownership of all Canopy Growth’s U.S. cannabis investments to Canopy USA.
- Canopy USA will hold Canopy Growth’s U.S. cannabis investments which will enable it to exercise rights to acquire Acreage, Jetty, and Wana.
- Holding a shareholder meeting to approve the creation of a new class of exchangeable shares in the capital of Canopy Growth.
Capitalizing on a once-in-a-generation market opportunity:
- Fast tracking entry into the world’s largest and fastest growing cannabis market – estimated by MJBiz to be over $50B by 2026.
- Establishing an industry-leading, premium-focused U.S. brand powerhouse.
- Consolidating U.S. financial results to better highlight the value of these assets for investors moving forward,
- Expect compelling financial benefits, including the ability to drive revenue growth, and realize cost synergies
Advancing a strategic vision as a leading premium-branded cannabis company in North America:
- Canopy USA will have a presence in 21 states and access to consumers through more than 2,150 third-party retail distribution points.
- Canopy USA also intends to relentlessly pursue revenue and cost synergies across its U.S. ecosystem and collaborate across the industry including with MSOs to seed Canopy USA’s leading brand portfolio for national expansion.
