Green Growth reaffirms takeover bid

First on the list of developments was the commitment from Green Growth on its takeover bid for Aphria. Last week, Aphria stockholders got a reaffirmation from Green Growth Brands on its commitment to take over Aphria. In its press release, Green Growth Brands indicated that it received early interest from “frustrated” shareholders looking to exit their investments. Green Growth further affirmed that Aphria’s shareholders will continue to hold control with a 60% ownership of the new entity.

Over the last week, HEXO (HEXO), Supreme Cannabis (SPRWF), and Cronos Group (CRON) all emerged with big gains.
