BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
(Reuters) — Canadian pot grower CannTrust Holdings Inc. on Thursday said that the sale of over half of its stock of marijuana and around a quarter of its plants had been suspended following the discovery of unlicensed cultivation at its facilities.
Regulator Health Canada last month found unlicensed cultivation in five rooms at a CannTrust facility.
Health Canada placed a hold on about 11,500 pounds of dried cannabis harvested in the rooms, while CannTrust also put a voluntary hold on a further 16,500 pounds of cannabis equivalents.
CannTrust on Thursday confirmed its earlier forecast that the value of the impacted inventory and assets was around CA$51 million ($38.3 million).
It warned that if Health Canada ordered the destruction of affected product, its second-quarter results would be materially impacted.
Since the news broke in July, the company has fired its chief executive officer, disclosed a regulatory investigation, and said its results may have to be restated, sending its shares plummeting over 50%. Earlier this week, Health Canada also found issues at another of its facilities.
The company said on Thursday that it had been preparing a remediation plan for Health Canada to consider but so far had had no "substantive discussions" with the regulator.
Ontario-based CannTrust also said that the New York Stock Exchange was monitoring the company's late filing of its second quarter financials.
For now, its shares continue to trade on the NYSE but the stock exchange could begin delisting procedures at any time if it chose, CannTrust said.
(Reuters) — The Ontario Securities Commission has opened an investigation into CannTrust Holdings Inc., the cannabis producer said on Thursday, less than a month after the health regulator found unlicensed pot cultivation by the company.
