Medcolcanna Graduates Public Listing to NEO Exchange
Company selects NEO as senior stock exchange of choice to access wider investor base and enhanced liquidity
Toronto – October 14, 2020 – NEO is pleased to announce it has granted final approval to Medcolcanna Organics Inc. (“Medcolcanna”, “MCCN” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated Canadian cannabis company, to graduate to the NEO Exchange, following a voluntary delisting from the TSX Venture Exchange. Medcolcanna will begin trading today on the NEO Exchange under the symbol NEO:MCCN.
Founded in 2018, Medcolcanna believes in the healing power of cannabis and uses proprietary scientific formulas to deliver effective and accessible products to consumers around the world. MCCN has developed brands in a range of consumer verticals, including cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), boasting a capacity of 300 tons of dry flower processing per year – one of the largest extraction capacities of any licensed cannabis producer. With fully licensed operations just outside of Bogota, Medcolcanna’s strategically located facilities enable optimal cultivation and production conditions while leveraging the low-cost structure in Colombia to expand its footprint in high value markets.
“This is a big day and an important milestone for Medcolcanna,” says Felipe de la Vega, CEO & Founder of Medcolcanna.“Having launched on the TSXV in May of 2019, we are now ready and excited to graduate to a senior exchange so we can better execute our aggressive growth strategy. We chose the NEO Exchange because they understand the complex needs of our business and industry. Their level of service has been indispensable in helping us reach this milestone. Through NEO, we expect to gain greater exposure to a wider investor base, increased access to capital, enhanced liquidity, and a true partner for the long term.”
With plans underway to enter the US market with low-cost cannabinoid raw materials in 2021, Medcolcanna has already developed a strategic network of pharmaceutical partnerships and other assets across the value chain to secure a leadership position in the global medicinal cannabis market. The company announced in July it had entered into a distribution and profit-sharing agreement with Greenstein Trading Ltd, a subsidiary of Greenstein Capital Ltd, to accelerate its strategic entry into the European cannabis market. Additionally, Medcolcanna SAS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, recently announced a joint venture with Grupo Curativa SAS to distribute MCCN’s proprietary formulations to an extensive group of patients through Curativa’s network of doctors, starting this month.
“Medcolcanna is well-positioned to accelerate their growth in revenue and market share, both in Colombia and internationally,” commented Jos Schmitt, President and CEO of NEO. “By listing on the NEO Exchange, they’ll benefit from enhanced liquidity, greater visibility and investor awareness, a better experience for their investors, and exceptional service and support. Their strategic decision to graduate to the NEO Exchange is a testament to our relentless drive to deliver results, do what is right for capital raisers and investors, and champion the success of our issuers. We are honoured to be Medcolcanna’s senior stock exchange of choice, and look forward to working with them over the years to come.”
