A recent editorial by Anthony Varrell of technical420 reviews a slowdown in merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the cannabis sector during the last year and its expected positive trend and bounce back in 2020 and moving forward. The article highlights three companies thought to be potential acquirers, including Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC), MediPharm Labs (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) and Jushi Holdings (CSE: JUSH), as well as companies technical420 believes could be potential acquisition targets, including Stem Holdings (CSE: STEM) (OTCQX: STMH), Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (TSX: FAF) (OTC: FFLWF) and WeedMD (TSX.V: WMD) (OTCQX: WDDMF). “Several high-profile acquisitions that were announced in 2019 have been terminated or are still pending. The closing of these acquisitions will be a positive trend for the sector, and we expect to see a bounce back in the cannabis M&A market in 2020 and beyond,” Varrell writes. “Once valuations start to improve, we expect to see a significant increase in the amount of M&A activity, and this is a trend that we will continue to monitor.”
