“The exercise of the vast majority of the two sets of warrants recently issued by Emerald long before their expiry dates – and well ahead of their acceleration trigger events – is great news for the Company’s shareholders as Emerald has received $26.5 million from these warrant exercises,” said Avtar Dhillon, MD, Executive Chairman of Emerald. “These funds will support our advancing production scaling and production innovation plans. Construction of our wholly-owned Metro Vancouver greenhouse and conversion of our partnered greenhouse in Delta, BC are progressing well. Full implementation of these facilities will place Emerald in the top tier of production capacity among Canadian Licensed Producers as we prepare for full legalization of adult use cannabis in 2018.”
