New structure of capital being brought to Canadian cultivation market through "streaming" arrangements from several new financing groups.
Streaming deals borrow structure from mining industry wherein future output is exchanged for upfront capital.

Mergers & Acquisitions

M&A activity in the Cultivation & Retail sector has been driven primarily by existing operators seeking strategic acquisitions and synergies to bolster their competitive positioning and increase market share.
Late-stage applicants in Health Canada's ACMPR system have lately generated additional interest from investors and strategics due to their relatively lower valuations (compared to Canadian cannabis cultivators licensed under the ACMPR).

M&A activity in Agriculture Technology sector points to continued development and implementation of more advanced growing technologies as cultivators seek to maximize efficiency and to lower costs amid pricing pressure.

Activity in Investments/M&A sector follows trend of accelerating M&A activity in cannabis industry.
Average of 1.4 deals closed per week in first three quarters of 2016 compared to 3.2 deals closed per week from the start of the fourth quarter of 2016 to date in 2017.
