Leamington, Ontario-based cannabis producer Aphria (TSX: APH, OTC: APHQF) announced today that its common shares will list on the NYSE as APHA and will begin trading on November 2, 2018.
Aphria’s ticker symbol on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) will also change from APH to APHA, on November 2, 2018. Existing shares of Aphria, which previously traded on the OTCQB as APHQF will now trade on the NYSE.
Aphria is a leader in low-cost production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis, grown in greenhouse conditions. It has a presence in more than 10 countries on 5 continents.
Aphria intends to delist its shares from the OTCQB. While shareholders are not required to take any action, Aphria recommends that holders who bought shares on the OTCQB monitor their account to ensure their holdings are correctly reflected under the new ticker symbol.
“Listing on the NYSE provides Aphria with access to the largest equity market in the world, with increased exposure to a vast array of US institutional and retail investors,” said Vic Neufeld, Aphria CEO. He added: “…we aim to further expand our footing in…markets such as Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe.”
