A little over a week ago, we posted a piece gauging the bottom potential for Auxly Cannabis Group Inc (OTCMKTS:CBWTF), suggesting that we might be carving out an important low in the stock. Since then, we have seen a jump of as much as 60% and a breakout above the 50-day simple moving average. The action has been red-hot, and clearly part of a larger momentum move by the cannabis space in general. But the stock has certainly had its own catalysts at work.
As a case in point, the company just announced that it has entered into a share purchase agreement with KGK Science Inc. to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of KGK for total consideration of $12,300,000 payable in cash and common shares of the Company. According to the release, “KGK is a leading health and wellness-focused private contract research organization based in London, Ontario, and the Company expects to leverage KGK’s expertise and research abilities to further the Company’s product development efforts through collaboration with the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Dosecann Inc.”
