Mar 12 22:03 2018 Print This Article

He likes the Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB) pickup of CanniMed (TSX:CMED), but GMP Securities analyst Martin Landry thinks the resultant company doesn’t have much upside from here.

On March 9, Aurora Cannabis announced it was successful in its bid to acquire CanniMed Therapeutics.

“Following the take-up, we will immediately commence with the integration of CanniMed into the Aurora organization and start executing on realizing the strategic synergies we have identified,” said CEO Terry Booth. “Combining two of the leading international cannabis brands creates a company that is exceptionally well positioned to capitalize on the tremendous opportunities in the domestic and international medical markets, as well as the Canadian adult consumer use market, once legalized. We look forward to working closely with our new colleagues to establish Aurora’s Medical Cannabis Centre of Excellence.”
