Canadian packaged goods cannabis company HEXO Corp. closed its planned C$263 million all-stock acquisition of Toronto-based Newstrike Brands Ltd.
The Canadian Competition Bureau approved the transaction earlier in the month.
Newstrike is the parent company of Up Cannabis Inc., a producer of cannabis licensed to cultivate and sell cannabis in all acceptable forms.
Under the terms of the transaction, Newstrike shareholders received 0.06332 of a HEXO common share for each Newstrike common share held. HEXO shareholders will own about 86% of the combined company, and Newstrike shareholders will own 14%.
Newstrike will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange by May 28.
