HEXO Provides Integration Update

HEXO Corp., provided an update on the execution of its ongoing integration plan following its recent acquisitions of Redecan, Zenabis Global Inc. and 48North Cannabis Corp. (“48North”). In the coming months, HEXO will cease operations at three production sites to centralize product cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution at its core facilities.

“As part of the integration planning process, we completed a comprehensive evaluation of all HEXO facilities to review their capabilities, capacity, and efficiency, and made the decision to centralize operations at our core facilities. This decision is key to achieving our immediate priority of integrating our recent acquisitions to drive growth and profitability through the commercialization of cannabis consumer packaged goods products. We are confident that our core sites, combined with strategic partnerships, will ensure sufficient supply of high-quality cannabis to meet demand,” said Scott Cooper, President & CEO, HEXO. “This was a very difficult decision, but it is a key component of our integration plan, and one that we believe best positions HEXO for continued growth. I would like to thank all of the employees at Kirkland Lake, Brantford and Stellarton for their efforts, dedication and professionalism in helping build HEXO.”

HEXO made the decision to decommission the:

  • Kirkland Lake, Ontario facility, which was acquired through the 48North acquisition, effective on January 31, 2022.
  • Brantford, Ontario facility, which was acquired through the 48North acquisition, effective on January 31, 2022.
  • Stellarton, Nova Scotia facility, which was acquired through the Zenabis acquisition, effective February 28, 2022.

These facilities are not considered material to HEXO’s integrated operations. HEXO is working closely with employees to reduce the impact of the decommissioning of these facilities. This includes relocating employees who take on roles at one of HEXO’s core facilities and supporting those who are not able to relocate with their search for employment. Approximately 155 employees are impacted by this decision.
