Under the terms of the agreement, Hiku shareholders will receive 0.046 of a Canopy Growth common share in exchange for each common share of Hiku. The transaction will be carried out by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and will require the approval of at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast by the shareholders of Hiku at a special meeting.
