Aurora Cannabis to acquire remaining interest in Hempco Food and Fiber

Aurora Cannabis and Hempco Food and Fiber announced that the companies have entered into a binding letter agreement in regard to the basic terms and conditions upon which Aurora will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Hempco not already owned by Aurora. In consideration of the transaction, Aurora has agreed to pay $1.04 per Hempco Share, payable in common shares of Aurora, reflecting a valuation of approximately C$63.4M on a fully diluted basis. Hempco's Board of Directors have determined that the proposed Transaction is in the best interest of shareholders, having taken into account advice from its financial advisor and the recommendation of the special committee of the Board of Directors, and have approved the Transaction. Under the terms of the Letter Agreement, the proposed Transaction is expected to be effected by way of a court approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act or by way of an alternate structure as determined by Aurora and Hempco based upon tax, securities and corporate law and other relevant considerations. Aurora has agreed to pay $1.04 per Hempco Share, payable in Aurora Shares at a deemed value of $12.01 per Aurora Share, being the volume-weighted average trading price of Aurora Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange in the five trading days immediately prior to the date of the Letter Agreement. Hempco's outstanding options and warrants will be adjusted in accordance with their terms such that the number of Aurora Shares received upon exercise and the exercise price will reflect the Exchange Ratio. As Aurora owns approximately 52% of the issued and outstanding Hempco Shares, it is expected that the Transaction would constitute a "business combination" for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transaction and that Hempco will obtain a formal valuation and a fairness opinion from an independent valuator. Upon completion of the Transaction, Hempco will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Aurora and Hempco's shares will be de-listed from the TSX Venture Exchange and it is expected that Aurora will apply to cause Hempco to cease being a reporting issuer under applicable Canadian securities laws. It is currently expected that, subject to receipt of all regulatory, court, shareholder and other approvals, and the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions, the Transaction will be completed in the second quarter or such other date as the parties may agree. The parties expect to execute a Definitive Agreement on or before May 15.

Cowen moderates near-term expectations for cannabis group on supply constraints
After hosting investor meetings with the management of Tilray (TLRY), Cowen analyst Vivien Azer said that Canada clearly remains supply constrained and that Tilray, with its asset-light approach, is overexposed to this supply tightness. Independent of commentary from the meetings with Tilray, Azer lowered her revenue estimates throughout her Canadian cannabis coverage as her current read suggests that Q1 growth will likely be modest. Despite her moderation of her near-term expectations, Azer keeps Outperform ratings on Aurora Cannabis (ACB), Canopy Growth (CGC) and Tilray (TLRY) and maintains a Market Perform rating on Cronos (CRON).

Narrow U.S. cannabis bills have better prospects than broad ones, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Jaret Seiberg said it is hard for him to see a scenario in the 116th Congress in which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds a vote on legislation to fully legalize cannabis, as too many senators see no political upside for McConnell to schedule such a vote. Given this view, Seiberg believes that prospects are better for narrower bills that could get attached to spending packages and other measures than for broader bills that would legalize recreational use. Of the narrower bills introduced in the U.S. so far, Seiberg believes the SAFE Act on cannabis banking has the best shot before the 2020 election. Publicly traded companies in the cannabis space include Aphria (APHA), Aurora Cannabis (ACB), CV Sciences (CVSI), CannTrust Holdings (CNTTF), Canopy Growth (CGC), Cronos Group (CRON), General Cannabis (CANN), India Globalization Capital (IGC), MediPharm Labs (MLCPF) and Tilray (TLRY).

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Carnival (CCL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs analyst Stephen Grambling citing the company accelerating its net unit growth from 2.5% in the last 3 years to 5% over the next 3 years and also believes that concerns about net yields in Europe are overblown. 2. Sanderson Farms (SAFM) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Ken Goldman saying he now views the stock's upside/downside risk as balanced. 3. Axis Capital (AXS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Meyer Shields saying Axis is positioned for strong underwriting improvement. 4. Broadridge (BR) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Patrick O'Shaughnessy saying he believes Broadridge's current valuation offers investors an attractive entry point into a differentiated, high barrier to entry business. 5. Aurora Cannabis (ACB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at GMP Securities with analyst Martin Landry saying new high profile strategic advisor Nelson Peltz could be "instrumental" in facilitating partnership talks with large consumer packaged goods companies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
