CALGARY, AB, Oct. 6, 2021 /CNW/ - High Tide Inc. ("High
Tide" or the "Company") (TSXV: HITI) (Nasdaq: HITI) (FSE: 2LYA), a
retail-focused cannabis company enhanced by the manufacturing of
proprietary and licensed consumption accessories, today announced
that as per the recently-disclosed listing of holdings available on
its website, the Company's shares have now been included in The
Cannabis Growth ETF (NYSE:BUDX).
"This is now the fourth cannabis ETF that has initiated a
position in High Tide since we began trading on the Nasdaq just
over four months ago. Additionally, the number of equity research
analysts covering High Tide has doubled from two to four over the
same time period, with more likely on the way. All of this
demonstrates that our growth strategy and the execution of our
business plan are not going unnoticed, as we just surpassed 100
stores in Canada which are
complemented by our unique online portfolio of businesses,
including multiple e-commerce platforms in the ancillary cannabis
space focused on the U.S. market" said Raj Grover, President and
Chief Executive Officer of High Tide. "Our Nasdaq listing has led
to more awareness of High Tide's business model, with new analysts
magnifying our reach with institutions. This expanded visibility
should boost trading volumes and help others appreciate how we are
EBITDA-positive today and rapidly building our business for the
long-term," added Mr. Grover.
