Marc Lustig, CEO of CannaRoyalty, added, “The Agreement to transfer our Canadian license to the Wagner Dimas technology aligns with and advances our focused business strategy of building out our distribution and brand network in our core market of California. This successful liquidity event for one of our early investments validates our approach as a strategic investor in the cannabis industry, while at the same time providing us with equity exposure to Aurora’s future growth”
