VANCOUVER, July 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Aurora Cannabis Inc. (the "Company" or "Aurora") (TSXV: ACB) (OTCQX: ACBFF) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) announced today that the Company has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange and list its common shares on the TSX. Upon receiving final approval, the common shares will continue to trade under the symbol "ACB". In conjunction with listing on the TSX, the common shares will be voluntarily delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange prior to the commencement of trading on the TSX.
"Aurora's graduation to the TSX, for which we anticipate receiving final approval imminently, is another exciting milestone, reflecting our remarkable pace of growth and expansion, both across Canada and internationally," said Terry Booth, CEO. "Since we began commercial operations 18 months ago, Aurora has established itself as a driving force, with one of the strongest brands in the cannabis industry, due to constant innovation and consistent execution. Tangible developments, such as the construction of Aurora Sky, our 100,000 kg per year cannabis production facility, the acquisitions in Québec and Germany, as well as our strategic investments in Cann Group in Australia, and Radient Technologies in Alberta, reflect how Aurora continues to set new standards in the industry. Having uplisted from the CSE to the TSXV in October, 2016, we believe that now graduating to the TSX will enable us to address an even wider investor audience, both domestically and internationally. We remain focused strongly on building shareholder value, and look forward to reporting on our progress as a member of Canada's flagship stock exchange."
