New Market: 420 Million People
ICC currently commands a 70% market share in Uruguay. Plus, it has licenses to grow cannabis in Colombia and an agreement to export to Mexico.
Uruguay has a population of 3.4 million people. That puts the country on-par with Nevada, in terms of population.
While Uruguay is a tiny country, it could serve as a gateway to South America. The continent with 420 million people is sizable, and quickly moving toward 100% cannabis legalization.
Global expansion is a major opportunity for the top cannabis stocks. And Aurora is embracing that growth opportunity with this deal.
The South American company has a total estimated production capacity of 450,000 kilograms.
Cam Battley – an executive at Aurora – explained, “We feel a significant sense of urgency to rapidly establish a powerful global footprint.”
The deal marks the tenth acquisition by Aurora Cannabis in the last two years.
ICC is getting “bought out” at a 34% premium to the market. That’s based upon a 20-day average share price.
Shareholders will get shares of Aurora in the all-stock deal. After the acquisition, ICC shareholders will own just 3.6% of Aurora Cannabis.
Let’s take a look at what it means for Aurora shareholders (I personally OWN the stock).
Prior to the deal, Aurora has a funded cannabis production capacity of 420,000 kilograms.
This deal effectively doubles the company’s production capacity!
Critics will say that the acquisition dilutes current shareholders. Yet the 3.6% dilution seems like a small price for doubling production.
Expect more major buyouts – just like this pot stock buyout.
