This represents growth of 47% since our Initial Public Offering on January 26, 2018, or 23% year to date.
CGOC is now approximately 99% percent invested in companies operating in Canada, the U.S., Europe. Jamaica and Israel.

Jamie Blundell, President and Chief Operating Officer of CGOC commented, "CGOC realized a loss of 4% over last month compared to the North American Marijuana Index, which realized a 3% loss. The loss this month was mainly attributed to the overall decline in cannabis markets driven by the increase in momentum selling.
"As the share price continued to make positive headways, we saw the discount to NAV reduce to 33% from 43% in the previous month. Further closing this discount gap remains a top priority for us."

NAV is a non-IFRS (international financial reporting standards) measure and was calculated based on the estimated value of CGOC's investments less its liabilities, divided by the number of common shares outstanding. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management believes that NAV can provide information useful to its shareholders in understanding its performance and may assist in the evaluation of its business relative to its peers.
