VANCOUVER, July 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Hempco Food and Fiber Inc (TSXV:HEMP) ("Hempco") today announced that Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. ("ISS"), a leading independent proxy advisory firm, has recommended that shareholders of Hempco vote FOR the shareholder resolution (the "Arrangement Resolution") pertaining to the acquisition by Aurora Cannabis Inc. ("Aurora") (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM), of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Hempco which Aurora does not already currently own. Aurora currently holds 51% of the outstanding common shares of Hempco.

If the Arrangement Resolution is passed by Hempco shareholders, each Hempco shareholder other than Aurora, will receive $1.04 per Hempco share, payable in common shares of Aurora shares at a deemed value of $12.01, resulting in an exchange ratio of approximately 0.08659 Aurora shares for each Hempco share.

The meeting to approve the Arrangement Resolution is scheduled for August 13, 2019, at 9:00am Vancouver time.  The deadline to vote is August 9, 2019, at 9:00am Vancouver time.
