Canopy Growth, Acreage Holdings urge shareholders to vote for proposed merger

Canopy Growth (CGC) and Acreage Holdings (ACRGF) thank shareholders for their overwhelming support to date and remind shareholders to vote on the applicable resolutions in connection with the proposed acquisition of Acreage by Canopy Growth, before the voting deadline of 10:00 am (EST) on Monday, June 17. The boards of directors of both Canopy Growth and Acreage unanimously support the Transaction and believe that it will create significant value for both sets of shareholders and each recommend that their respective shareholders vote FOR the various resolutions at the respective special meetings of shareholders of Canopy Growth and Acreage. Acreage shareholders will receive a significant upfront cash payment of approximately $2.51-$2.63 per Subordinate Voting Share and are expected to benefit from accelerated expansion, improved scale, and a stronger market position in the U.S., powered by the IP and brand rights of the world's leading cannabis company. For Canopy Growth shareholders, the Transaction represents a clear path for Canopy Growth to enter the U.S. cannabis market, when federally-permissible, and will introduce its brands and consumer products in the United States.

Stifel initiates coverage of Canadian cannabis companies
Stifel analyst W. Andrew Carter initiated coverage of Canopy Growth (CGC) with a Buy rating and C$55 price target, Aurora Cannabis (ACB) with a Hold rating and C$10 price target, Cronos Group (CRON) with a Hold rating and C$18 price target, and Tilray (TLRY) with a Hold rating and $37 price target. The analyst is bullish on the growth prospects for the cannabis industry, especially through the Canadian Licensed Producers, or LPs. Carter sees these four companies as holding a lead in the legal Canadian market, and believes they represent the "best investable opportunities in a global cannabis industry" that the firm sees reaching $200B in value. The analyst calls Canopy Growth the best opportunity, citing "definitive category leadership, C$4B cash on hand offering significant optionality, and the best position to attack the $100B U.S. opportunity."

Cannabis regulation could become top 2020 election issue, says Piper Jaffray
After Washington D.C. lobbyist Michael Esposito, who also works closely with President Trump's administration, spoke at his firm's conference, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery believes cannabis regulation could become a top 2020 election issue. By supporting cannabis, Trump may be able to incrementally broaden his appeal with swing voters without alienating his base, Esposito tells investors in a research note. Though Trump has indicated his willingness to support the STATES Act, his enthusiasm could depend on whether or not Elizabeth Warren, author of the bill, is his opponent, adds the analyst in a note titled "Handicapping US Legalization Outlook: Politics Are Complicated." And while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a roadblock for legislation in the Senate, Trump could use executive orders between now and the election to show support for the industry, potentially relating to cannabis banking or medical research, says Lavery. The analyst has Overweight ratings on both Canopy Growth (CGC) and Tilray (TLRY). Other names in the space include Aphria (APHA), Aurora Cannabis (ACB), CV Sciences (CVSI), CannTrust Holdings (CNTTF), Cronos Group (CRON), General Cannabis (CANN), India Globalization Capital (IGC), MediPharm Labs (MLCPF) and Zynerba (ZYNE).

Canopy Growth upgraded to Buy after Acreage deal at GMP Securities
As previously reported, GMP Securities analyst Martin Landry upgraded Canopy Growth (CGC) to Buy from Hold after the company confirmed a deal giving it the right to acquire Acreage Holdings (ACRGF) upon cannabis production and sale becoming federally legal in the U.S., giving Canopy exposure to the largest cannabis market in the world. He sees significant near-term synergies and believes "the price is right," arguing that the takeout multiple is low given the strategic nature of the acquisition and Acreage's potential for continued strong growth. Landry raised his price target on Canopy shares to C$72 from C$65.
