The firm will use the same ticker symbol it currently has for both listings. This year, fellow licensed producer (LP) CannTrust Holdings (TSX:TRST) confirmed an application to list on the NYSE as well.

Peter Aceto, CEO of CannTrust, said the listing will broaden the investor base for the company and will allow it a bigger platform for exposure.

Once both companies begin trading on the exchange, the NYSE will host five Canadian LPs among its listings. Two other LPs, Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) and Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON,TSX:CRON), are listed on the NASDAQ.

HEXO also announced it will delist its shares from the OTC Pink exchange.

The company attracted attention from the market last year as it signed a joint venture agreement with Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP,TSX:TAP) for the development of cannabis-infused beverages.

These novel products will be pursued across the space, with multiple LPs announcing intentions to launch their own beverages.

HEXO, Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC,TSX:WEED) and Tilray are the only producers to have secured a business relationship with a beverage company. Constellation Brands invested C$5 billion into Canopy and Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) holds a partnership with Tilray.
