Why It Matters
The S&P/TSX 60 Index is aimed at exposing investors to 60 large companies across 10 sectors on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Canopy will join the Index after meeting eligibility milestones in regards to certain market capitalization, liquidity and domicile requirements. Canopy's activity in the cannabis industry includes cultivation, processing and selling medical cannabis.
The addition marks another significant accomplishment for Canopy, according to founder and CEO Bruce Linton.
"First traded on the TSX Venture Exchange on April 4, 2014, I cannot think of a better way to celebrate our 5th year anniversary as a publicly traded company, than being added to the TSX's large-cap index," Linton said in a press release.
The move marks the Ontario-based company’s latest growth in the market, which includes graduating to the primary TSX board back in 2016.
