SHARE

As the cannabis theme continues to build out and differentiate itself, shares of Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF) continue to look more and more interesting. Following the company’s recent deal with Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE:TAP) to kickstart the cannabis beverage space, shares broke out of their prior trading range. That move may be preparing to extend following the company’s most recent announcement that it plans to establish a Eurozone processing, production and distribution center in Greece.

According to the release, “The partnership with Greek company Qannabos (“QNBS”) will catalyze a vertically integrated cannabis enterprise to capitalize on the current medical markets. HEXO’s plan to establish operations in Greece marks the Company’s first foray into the European cannabis market. The move will provide the company presence in Europe to supply a full suite of brands in France, the United Kingdom, and other European markets once regulations permit.”

Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF) trumpets itself as a company that, together with its subsidiaries, produces and distributes medical marijuana products. The company is headquartered in Gatineau, Canada, and, as noted above, just changed its corporate name from “The Hydropothecary Corporation” to “HEXO Corp.” effective August 29, 2018.

HEXO creates and distributes innovative, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand products to serve the Canadian cannabis market. One of the country’s lowest-cost producers, HEXO is rapidly increasing its production capacity in the lead up to the adult-use cannabis market.

The Company currently operates with over 310,000 sq. ft. of production capacity with construction on another 1,000,000 sq. ft. expansion set to be complete by year-end. HEXO will serve the adult-use market under the HEXO brand, while continuing to serve its medical cannabis clients through the well-known Hydropothecary brand.
