TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2019 /CNW/ - The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. ("Supreme Cannabis" or the "Company") (TSXV: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF) (FRA: 53S1) announced today that it has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and list its common shares on the TSX.
"Graduating to the TSX will broaden our investment appeal and leave us well positioned to execute on our strategic imperatives for 2019, which is why we're pleased to add this milestone to our list of accomplishments for the year," said Navdeep Dhaliwal, CEO of Supreme Cannabis. "Our Company had a banner year that was headlined by our wholly-owned subsidiary, 7ACRES, generating the sixth highest revenue among Canadian licensed cannabis producers this past quarter. On a revenue basis, the first year of cannabis sales for 7ACRES was one of the best among any Canadian licensed cannabis producer, validating our belief that long-lasting value flows from foundational investments in high-end cannabis cultivation. Looking forward, we are eager to build on these accomplishments and make significant advancements by cementing 7ACRES as a leading premium flower brand, establishing export channels for Medigrow, launching jointly-developed products with Khalifa Kush Enterprises and more in 2019."
Final approval of the listing is subject to the Company meeting certain customary conditions required by the TSX. Supreme Cannabis will issue a statement once the TSX confirms the date on which trading on the TSX will commence. Upon completion of the final listing requirements, Supreme Cannabis' common shares will be delisted from the TSXV and will commence trading on the TSX under the symbol "FIRE".
