• Aurora continues to advance strategic leadership in the global cannabinoid industry
EDMONTON, AB, Jan. 4, 2022 /CNW/ – Aurora Cannabis Inc. (the “Company” or “Aurora”) (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), the Canadian company defining the future of cannabinoids worldwide, announced today the delivery of a cannabis shipment worth approximately C$10 million – the company’s largest ever shipment to Israel, and what is believed to be the largest export of medical Cannabis into the Israeli market. Delivered in December, the shipment will be recognized as revenue in Aurora’s FY22 Q2 period.
The sale builds on the Company’s growing presence in Israel, a key market as Aurora continues to strengthen its international medical business. As the leading Canadian licensed producer (LP) in global medical cannabis by revenue, Aurora has strategically focused on international expansion to bolster its diversified business portfolio. The Company also recently entered into a joint venture in The Netherlands to participate in the Controlled Cannabis Supply Chain Experiment, an adult-use pilot program.
“It’s an exciting time for the global cannabis industry, as we’re seeing growing acceptance and thoughtful regulation of both medical and adult-use cannabis across Europe and in key markets like Israel,” says Miguel Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Aurora. “With strong local relationships, as well as support from our patients and consumers, we look forward to continuing to expand our international business to complement our total cannabis portfolio.”
