The path higher has been hampered for Auxly Cannabis Group Inc (OTCMKTS:CBWTF) in recent action, with shares falling back down to retest key support in the $0.55/share area last week. This follows strength over the summer that had rekindled hopes of a coming breakout and some serious catch-up action that would make up for lost ground on a relative basis. However, we may be seeing that hope rekindled once action, given the strong action in the name over recent days.
Helping to push and focus that action, the company just announced that its transaction with Imperial Brands PLC has closed. According to the release, “As announced on July 25, 2019, Imperial Brands invested C$123 million by way of a debenture pursuant to the Transaction, which is convertible into 19.9% ownership of Auxly. Imperial Brands grants Auxly global licenses to its vaping technology, access to its vapor innovation business, Nerudia, and will use Auxly as its exclusive partner for the future development, manufacture, commercialization, sale and distribution of cannabis products of any kind anywhere in the world.”
