Khiron Life Sciences Announces Incorporation into Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2018 /CNW/ - Khiron Life Sciences Corp. ("Khiron" or the "Company") (TSXV: KHRN, OTCQB: KHRNF, Frankfurt: A2JMZC), an integrated medical cannabis company with its core operations in Colombia, is pleased to announce its incorporation into the Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF (NEO: HMRJ) (the "ETF").  

Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (CNW Group/Khiron Life Sciences Corp.)

HMJR is an index (or passively managed) ETF, which seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Emerging Marijuana Growers Index, net of expenses. This index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of primarily North American publicly listed small-capitalization companies involved in the cultivation, production and/or distribution of marijuana.

Publicly listed companies within the Index generally must have a market capitalization greater than $50 million, but less than $500 million for initial inclusion. HMJR is solely invested in marijuana producers and distributors, and includes exposure to companies listed outside of North America.
