"We applaud TerrAscend on their transformative TSX listing, a testament to their innovating spirit and recent growth while strengthening their balance sheet as well as becoming cash flow positive," said David Klein, CEO, Canopy Growth. "TerrAscend is an important part of the Canopy USA ecosystem, which is already facilitating brand collaboration to drive entry into new markets and product assortment expansion in existing markets. We look forward to continuing to support their success and working together to capitalize on a once-in-a-generation U.S. market opportunity."

TerrAscend's listing on the TSX marks the first cannabis company to successfully trade on a major exchange with consolidated financial statements that include revenues from multi-state operations across the U.S. It also leverages a similar novel structure to that of the Canopy USA strategy which the Company continues to advance and is designed to accelerate entry into the U.S. cannabis market, in addition to establishing an industry leading, premium focused brand powerhouse.

Further demonstrating the value-enhancing synergies of the Canopy USA ecosystem, in May, TerrAscend became the sole manufacturer, supplier, and commercialization partner of Wana Brands in New Jersey and has launched Wana's cannabis-infused gummies in the state.
