At the end of Thursday’s trading session TLRY was worth US$22.39 per share.

Tilray will trade its class 2 common stock shares with subordinate voting power under the ticker symbol “TLRY.” The producer’s parent company Privateer Holdings, a private equity firm based in Seattle, holds all of the multiple-voting shares, according to The Globe and Mail.

The shares owned by Privateer will be entitled to 10 votes per share for Tilray’s decisions involving shareholders.

The cannabis producer gave its underwriters in the US and Canada the option to purchase 978,600 and 371,400 additional shares over a 30-day allotment option.

Tilray gives investors another option for a massive cannabis producer with an established medical presence and distribution deals with provinces for recreational sales.

Tilray distribution agreements with B.C. and Manitoba for legal recreational cannabis products set to be sold by the government once the market opens on October 17. The deals were awarded to its subsidiary High Park Company.

Beacon Securities analyst David Kideckel told CNBC he doesn’t see a rush of other Canadian companies looking to launch offerings in a US exchange. However he does see dual listing possibilities.

Cronos Group (TSX:CRON; NASDAQ:CRON) and Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED; NYSE:CGC) already trade on the Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) respectively.

In Canada the TMX Group, which oversees the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV), prohibited the exposure into the US cannabis sector from any listing. The alternative for companies with assets in the country is to raise capital in the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE).
