On The Heels Of Tilray Deal

The news comes on the heels of a strategic partnership with Tilray Brands, Inc. TLRY, which includes a new debt financing agreement. Under the new agreement, Tilray Brands will acquire $211 million of senior secured convertible notes that were originally issued by HEXO to HT Investments MA LLC.

The new terms of the notes are significantly more favorable to HEXO and will enable the company to strengthen its balance sheet and accelerate its transformation into a cash flow positive business within the next four quarters. The new partnership also brings together Canada’s top two cannabis market share leaders and is expected to create efficiencies of up to CA$50 million ($39.57 million) within two years which will be shared equally between HEXO and Tilray Brands.

Hexo shares were trading 3.16% higher at $0.59 per share during Wednesday's pre-market session.
