On May 20, a securities team from Jenner & Block’s Corporate Department closed on a new $300 million at-the-market (ATM) offering facility for Aurora Cannabis Inc., which is listed on the New York and Toronto Stock Exchanges under the stock symbol “ACB.” The ATM facility enables our client to sell, from time to time, up to $300 million of its shares at times of its choosing by tendering notice to the banks with which it entered into the facility (functioning a bit like the corporate equivalent of an ATM machine for individuals). Our client plans to use the funds for general corporate purposes.
