Aurora Cannabis Applies to List on the New York Stock Exchange

Canadian cannabis company Aurora Cannabis announced that it has filed an application to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "ACB," the same ticker the stock trades under on the Toronto Stock Exchange. 

The company will also continue to trade on the OTCQX under the ticker symbol "ACBFF." The company expects to be trading on the NYSE before the end of the month. 

"Through our NYSE listing, Aurora joins an established group of mature global brands with improved access and exposure to an engaged international institutional investor audience," said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. "Aurora's high-paced execution has made it one of the world's leading cannabis companies."

The company said that it has a funded production capacity of 500,000 kilograms of cannabis a year with sales and operations on five continents and more than 1,500 employees. 

"We are also well-prepared for the launch of the domestic adult consumer use market in Canada with a portfolio of strong consumer brands and coast-to-coast provincial supply arrangements covering 98% of the Canadian population," Booth said.
