Featured Case Study
Aurora Cannabis $3.2 billion acquisition of MedReleaf
In May 2018, Aurora Cannabis was acquiring rival cannabis producer, MedReleaf in a $3.2 billion all-stock transaction, which, at the time, was the largest in the still-nascent cannabis industry. Aurora had a track record of being highly acquisitive in an industry with few established financial metrics and had to make a compelling case to the market as to why the acquisition was accretive and made strategic sense.
