A total of 9.0 million shares were issued in connection with the transaction, while $84,096.89 was paid in the form of cash, equating to a total transaction figure of roughly $259.5 million.
The transaction is expected to result in a total of $30 million in estimated synergies within the next two years, with Supreme now effectively a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.
Supreme Cannabis is expected to see its equity delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange as of today.
Canopy Growth last traded at $28.78 on the TSX.
