Aurora Cannabis to Acquire Cannabis Science Leader Anandia Laboratories Inc.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora” or the “Company”) (ACB.TO) (ACBFF) ( Frankfurt : 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) and Anandia Laboratories Inc. (“Anandia“) announced today that they have signed a binding term sheet whereby Aurora intends to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of privately-held Anandia in an all share transaction valued at approximately $115 million on a fully diluted basis (the “Transaction”).
Led by CEO and co-founder Jonathan Page , PhD, one of the industry’s most widely recognized cannabis experts, Anandia is considered the industry leader in science, genetics, and independent cannabis product testing. Dr. Page was the first scientist to sequence the cannabis genome and provide deep insights into the biosynthesis of cannabinoids and the interplay between cannabinoids and terpenes.
Anandia’s COO and co-founder, John Coleman , PhD, brings over 20 years of experience in drug research and commercialization as a natural product chemist. He previously worked in the biotech industry, most recently leading the team identifying new drug targets for the federally funded Centre for Drug Research and Development.
Anandia’s intellectual property (“IP”) includes the exclusive rights to a number of key genes in the cannabinoid pathway, as well as patents pending for genetic markers. The strength of Anandia’s expert staff, proprietary assets and know-how will provide Aurora with a very significant advantage in developing new cannabis cultivars. For instance, genome-based variety development and technological fortification can tailor metabolite (cannabinoid and terpene) profiles, improve disease resistance, enhance crop yield and optimize flowering time, and can be employed to develop specialized cultivars for oil production.
In advance of the forthcoming legalization of the adult use market and the significant associated growth, Anandia intends to expand its R&D, product testing, and product development facilities to meet both domestic and international demand, including the development of:
Anandia follows a three-pronged approach to creating value for its clients licensed under Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) and intends to continue to do so following completion of the Transaction:
Combining with Aurora gives Anandia access to significant new market opportunities in Canada and internationally through Aurora’s global footprint. Furthermore, leveraging Aurora’s capabilities and capacity in facility development, the combination will accelerate the construction of Anandia’s testing and product development laboratory in Vancouver , and a unique, purpose-built cannabis breeding facility ahead of Canadian adult-use legalization,
Anandia’s Product Testing
Anandia’s cannabis testing services will remain operationally independent of Aurora. These services will remain intact and Anandia is committed to continuing to serve all clients, including Licensed Producers and patient-growers, and Anandia is committed to maintaining complete data confidentiality. Anandia will continue to build capacity to take on the increased sample volume arising from legalization, including expansion to its new testing facility in Vancouver .
“This is a transformative acquisition that expands our science capabilities in the upstream segment of the seed-to-sale cannabis value chain, significantly boosting plant-based innovations in cultivation, enabling accelerated product development, and, ultimately, enhancing our margin profile going forward,” said Terry Booth , CEO of Aurora. “Anandia has a fantastic, complementary corporate culture and some of the best and brightest minds in the cannabis industry, including Dr. Jonathan Page , the first scientist to sequence the cannabis genome. By adding Dr. Page and the Anandia team to the existing Aurora and CanniMed research infrastructure, we are assembling a unique, world-class research group to capitalize on the many exciting opportunities the cannabis plant offers society.”
Dr. Jonathan Page , Anandia’s co-founder and CEO, added, “Anandia is already on its way to developing a world-leading library of cannabis genetics coupled with in-depth genomic analysis. We expect our breeding efforts to be accelerated through access to Aurora’s financial resources and scientific expertise, as well as through the addition of Aurora’s multiple cultivation sites. Anandia and Aurora are strong believers in research and science-based solutions. Joining forces with Aurora allows us to continue to provide best-in-class testing services to our customers, while rapidly advancing cannabis science for the benefit of patients, consumers and growers.”

Canopy to go ahead with pot trials to treat insomnia
2018-06-12 09:58 ET - News Release
Mr. Mark Zekulin reports
MEDICAL CANNABIS LEADERSHIP FROM CANOPY GROWTH AND SUBSIDIARY SPECTRUM CANNABIS
Canopy Growth Corp. has provided the following updates on its medical cannabis program and has reaffirmed its strong commitment to medical cannabis, the patients who depend on it and the health care professionals who prescribe it.
Historic clinical trial milestones
Marking a major milestone for medical cannabis in Canada, a phase IIb in-human clinical trial application was submitted by Canopy Health Innovations Inc. to evaluate the use of medical cannabis in the treatment of insomnia. Having received approval to proceed with these clinical trials in the form of a no objection letter (NOL) from Health Canada, Canopy Health will now proceed with these robust clinical trials, in collaboration with a leading Canadian research institution.
In light of the significant potential for cannabis in treating a range of medical conditions, this is the first in a planned series of trials to investigate and quantify the therapeutic effect of cannabis and cannabinoids across a selection of indications with significant unmet needs, working toward the ultimate goal of patented, insurance-eligible cannabinoid-based medicines.
World-class leadership for a global industry
As previously announced, starting in July, 2018, Dr. Mark Ware will commence his role as the company's chief medical officer. Under his leadership the company will continue to lead the global medical cannabis industry forward with a focus on research, product innovation and stakeholder education in the numerous regions where Spectrum Cannabis operates, including Latin America, Australia, Europe and North America.
Patients-first pricing mentality
Honouring the company's commitment to affordable medical cannabis and pricing predictability for patients, Canopy Growth is pleased to inform patients that, upon the passing of the Cannabis Act, the company will absorb the proposed excise tax on all Spectrum Cannabis products sold in Canada. Affordability is a key consideration for patients. It is important today to show leadership and reduce the price burden placed on customers, while the company works toward insurance eligibility for medical cannabis.
On top of this, all Spectrum Cannabis dried flower products will be priced at $8.50 per gram or less. If a registered customer is currently paying more for a Spectrum flower product this means new savings, and if they are paying less that price will remain the same. As always, Spectrum Cannabis products available on-line through the Tweed Main Street website are eligible for the company's industry-first compassionate pricing program that assists those on limited incomes afford their medicine.
"Using Canada's rich ecosystem of researchers and established cannabis stakeholders as a centre of expertise, Spectrum's global expansion is rooted in sophistication," said Mark Zekulin, president, Canopy Growth. "We are proudly a research- and patient-focused company that will continue to drive the cannabis innovation agenda forward around the world."
Here is to future growth.

Aurora Cannabis to acquire 8% of Choom Holdings
2018-06-13 08:02 ET - News Release
Mr. Terry Booth reports
AURORA CANNABIS TO BE LEAD INVESTOR IN CHOOM HOLDINGS PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Aurora Cannabis Inc. intends to complete a $7-million investment in Choom Holdings Inc., whereby Aurora will receive 9,859,155 common shares from Choom's treasury, priced at 71 cents per share, representing an 8-per-cent ownership interest.
Choom currently operates two late-stage applicants under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). Choom has agreements in place to acquire two additional late-stage applicant craft growers in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, including a facility in Sooke, B.C., anticipated to receive its cultivation licence from Health Canada in the third quarter of 2018.
The relationship between Aurora and Choom germinated through Aurora Pro, the platform through which the company delivers a variety of services to industry participants, including cultivation, genetics, regulatory consultancy and market development services. The Aurora Pro platform was developed by Aurora to interact with craft growers who are faced with potentially unreasonable entry barriers to the adult usage market in Canada.
Choom's strategy is to develop a carefully curated portfolio of high-grade cannabis strains with ideal characteristics for craft growing, targeting the premium segment of the adult consumer use market. Choom continues to develop a sophisticated brand, high-grade products and an elevated in-store customer experience. Images of the company's concept cannabis retail outlets can be found on-line.
To date, Choom has secured rights to 17 retail leases in highly defensible locations throughout Alberta. Applications to obtain a cannabis retail licence for these outlets have been submitted. Choom also has seven leases secured in B.C. and licences will be applied for upon commencement of the licensing program in B.C. Choom furthermore intends to play an important role in the Saskatchewan retail market and has a robust strategy in place to develop its presence in this market.
"Our investment in a consumer-focused brand with a strong retail strategy offers Aurora additional growth opportunities through supply, retail and distribution to the adult consumer use market, and provides a good example of the functioning of Aurora Pro," said Terry Booth, chief executive officer of Aurora. "Choom has established a well-developed brand, supported by deep roots within the British Columbia cannabis community and a passion for high-grade, handcrafted product. We're excited to strengthen our relationship with the team at Choom and help amplify their market reach as they continue to execute on their differentiated craft growing philosophy and their unique retail strategy."
Chris Bogart, president and CEO for Choom, added: "Teaming up with what we consider to be the most dynamic licensed producer with exceptional strength throughout the entire cannabis value chain, we believe, will prove to be a key growth accelerator for Choom. Both companies have a very strong focus on the entire customer experience, key in establishing exceptional brands. This investment by Aurora is a strong signal to our markets and our shareholders that Choom's strategy meets with the highest standards in the industry."
