Canopy Growth To Propose Share Consolidation Of Up To 1 For 15 Shares

Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) is set to seek approval for a share consolidation, following the receipt of a notice from the Nasdaq Stock Market that its shares have failed to meet a minimum bid requirement.

Canopy has indicated that following its failure to meet the minimum bid requirement of $1.00 for a period of 30 days, it has failed to meet a listing rule on the exchange. The company has 180 calendar days from the date of the letter to come into compliance with the minimum bid requirement.
