Merger Made In Heaven
Following its merger with Aphria (NASDAQ: APHA) (NASDAQ: APHA), which closed in May 2021, the new Tilray has made substantial strides across its business, by driving increased revenue through rapidly expanding its international medical business, introducing a new medical brand in Canada while increasing its share in that market, and making strong progress towards its target of $80 million in synergies.
The merger also made Tilray one of the largest cannabis companies in the world.
Tilray further intends to actively pursue accretive and strategic acquisition opportunities in the U.S., Canada, and globally, Simon said in a recent exclusive interview on Benzinga Cannabis Hour.
