Aurora Stock: Company Announcements
Aurora Cannabis is headquartered in Edmonton, Canada, and produces and distributes medical cannabis internationally and across Canada. The Canadian cannabis company has collaborative agreements with three major pharmacies in Canada—PharmaChoice, Pharmasave, and Shoppers Drug Mart. These national pharmacies will distribute and sell Aurora’s cannabis products.
Four days ago, Aurora announced that it just received regulatory approval to ship its products to Poland. Aurora will ship its medical cannabis products to a paint treatment center and hospital in Warsaw.
“Becoming the first company to supply cannabis to Poland is validation of Aurora’s ability to do business in international markets with high barriers to entry,” said Neil Belot, Chief Global Business Development Officer.
“This is an important milestone for patient access in Poland, which will provide options for people seeking alternative medications to help manage symptoms of a wide range of medical conditions. Aurora continues to grow its international footprint, which now spans 19 countries on five continents, and puts us in an enviable position to capitalize on our early mover advantage.”
Aurora stock saw a slight rise in price after this announcement, but it quickly corrected. Major sell-offs have been occurring sporadically across all cannabis stocks, which started when Canada nationally legalized cannabis back on October 17th. The approval news from the Polish Ministry of Health is the latest news Aurora Cannabis has released.
