Aurora Cannabis Inc., trading upwards of 10% following today's announcement that it has appointed Nelson Peltz as a Strategic Advisor. Mr. Peltz and Aurora will work collaboratively and strategically to explore potential partnerships that would be the optimal strategic fit for successful entry into each of Aurora's contemplated market segments.

"Nelson is a globally recognized business visionary with a strong track record of constructive engagement to generate accelerated, profitable growth and shareholder value across many industry verticals that are of great interest to us," said Terry Booth, CEO.

I also believe that Canadian licensed producers, and Aurora in particular, are well positioned to lead in the development of the international cannabis industry as regulations evolve, with a strong, globally replicable operating model. I look forward to working with Terry and the extended Aurora team to evaluate its many operational and strategic opportunities, including potential engagement with mature players in consumer and other market segments."
Cannabis One Holdings Inc., an emerging, premier "House of Brands" in North America, announced that effective March 5, 2019, it has executed a letter of intent to acquire majority ownership in California license holder, "420 Express Delivery Inc.", which operates, "Green Leaf Wellness", a dispensary located in the Coachella Valley of California, from Liht Cannabis Corp., a publicly-listed entity trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange. Following the closing of the transaction, it is the intention of the Company and Liht Cannabis to rebrand the operating entity, "Green Leaf Wellness", under the banner of the Company's retail concept The JointTM. The Company anticipates that this acquisition will provide Cannabis One, along with its unique branded products and retail presence, a foothold in the California market from which it may launch its proposed expansion, with a management-projected target of four (4) additional The JointTM locations in the state and a further twenty (20) The JointTM locations planned to arrive in state-legal jurisdictions across the U.S. in 2019, to complement this first transaction.
Following the execution of the LOI, Cannabis One CEO, Jeffery Mascio commented, "The Cannabis One team is pleased by this exciting opportunity to enter the California market and we believe this acquisition positions our company exceptionally well to promote the expansion of our portfolio of brands within one of the world's most vibrant markets." Mr. Mascio continued, "While we are naturally excited to introduce California to our The JointTM retail experience -- named among LeaflyTM's top Colorado picks for several years running -- and to roll-out our INDVRTM line of vaporizer products across the state, we also view this acquisition as a significant milestone for Cannabis One that now allows us to advance our partnerships within the California cannabis manufacturing and distribution space for exciting new strategic relationships."
