The Canadian cannabis industry: executing the deal
As the cannabis era dawns, the buildup toward the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada is in full swing. Across the country, companies are racing to get their hands on additional supply, production capacity, intellectual property (IP), and genetic variety while strengthening almost every aspect of the supply chain that could give them a leg up in this new—and highly competitive—landscape. As a result, we’ve seen an acceleration in M&A transactions in the marketplace in recent months, mega-deals and mid-sized transactions alike.
To meet this demand, companies will need to take a disciplined approach to mergers and acquisitions (M&A), particularly when it comes to post-transaction integration.
