Spun-off from Aurora Cannabis in September 2018, AUSA identifies, acquires, and invests in, and operates cannabis companies in the United States and abroad. Investments include equity, debt, or other securities of both public and private companies; financings in exchange for royalties or other distribution streams; and control share acquisitions. Acquisitions and investments are reviewed on an ongoing basis to determine the appropriateness of their weighting within the overall portfolio to provide optimal returns and grow shareholder value.
North America’s emerging cannabis industry represents an unrivaled investment opportunity. In addition to the production and sale of cannabis products, this multibillion-dollar market presents a wide variety of complementary businesses in logistics, technology, product development, branding, research and development, and regulatory compliance.
AUSA adheres to stringent acquisition and investment criteria and focuses on significant near- and mid-term high-quality opportunities with a steadfast commitment to governance and community. Members of the Board and management team have deep experience in highly regulated industries and knowledge of the U.S. cannabis industry. Together, they bring years of experience in regulatory compliance, public company governance, and operations.
