Canopy Growth Corporation (TSXV:CGC) has received final approval for listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
As quoted in the press release:
The Common Shares will commence trading on the TSX effective as of the open of the market on July 26, 2016. Upon listing on the TSX, the Common Shares will continue to trade under the symbol “CGC”. In conjunction with listing on the TSX, the Common Shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange prior to the commencement of trading on July 26, 2016.
Canopy Chairman and CEO, Bruce Linton, said:
Being the first cannabis producing company in North America listed on a major exchange such as the TSX strengthens the sector and is expected to bring Canopy Growth to international institutional investors. The TSX is the stock exchange for Canada’s banks and elite publicly traded companies, and we hope that the addition of Canopy Growth helps signal that the world’s view of cannabis has finally shifted, starting right here in Canada.
