In three months, give or take, recreational cannabis use will be legal in Canada. Sure, that's still pretty far away, but that's not stopping cannabis companies from preparing. For example, Emblem invests in Natura Naturals.
Emblem Corp recognizes that entering into partnerships is necessary to be prosperous in the cannabis market, but so is increasing product volume so that it can be a lead producer when the drug becomes legal. Thus, the investment.
Emblem Invests in Natura Naturals
This investment is going to do wonders for both companies. At least, that's what is forecasted—who knows, though; the cannabis market is a volatile place.
Regardless, don't think of the what ifs, think only of what's known. And what's known, thanks to today's announcement, is that Emblem Corp. is making a strategic equity investment in Natura Naturals, an Ontario-based cannabis company.
We also know that Emblem will be investing $3M in Natura (in cash) for more than 3M common shares of the company (3,750,000, to be exact).
After the deal is over, Emblem will, on a non-diluted basis, own roughly 5% of Natura's outstanding shares. On a fully diluted basis, Emblem will own 7%.
