Aurora Investors | About

Overview

CORPORATE PROFILE

Aurora is one of the largest and fastest growing cannabis companies in the world with a funded production capacity of over 500,000 kilograms per year. Since establishing the Company’s very first facility in Mountain View County, Alberta, Aurora has demonstrated an unprecedented commitment to execution and growth. Today, Aurora has developed an expanding constellation of subsidiaries and strategic partnerships that provide differentiation through its broad global reach, high-yield production techniques, use of advanced technologies and innovative product offering.

With the increasing adoption of medical and adult-consumer use cannabis legalization globally, Aurora has embarked on an aggressive international expansion strategy which currently sees the Company with sales and operations in 22 countries around the world.

Agility

Aurora has outpaced its closest industry peers in terms of total registered patients and revenue, despite receiving its sales license 18 months later than the initial licensed group. While the cannabis industry remains in its early stages, by capitalizing rapidly on multiple opportunities, Aurora has quickly become one of the globally dominant companies in the sector.

Innovation

As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, Aurora continues to implement advanced technologies, create unique products, and research new concepts. This commitment includes the Company’s state-of-the-art “Sky Class” facilities which leverage some of the world’s most technologically advanced cultivation technologies and clone transporters.

Execution

Having one of the industry's strongest balance sheets, Aurora has made a number of strategic investments that are well-integrated with the operational infrastructure of the Company. The value of these investments, which include both public and private companies, have increased significantly providing additional leverage for Aurora to continue to execute on further, accelerated growth opportunities.

Strategic Growth Initiatives

CAPACITY EXPANSION

To supply the rapidly growing global medical cannabis markets and adult consumer-use market in Canada, Aurora is rapidly expanding production capacity. The Company currently has eleven facilities worldwide: eight in production and three under construction. At full capacity, Aurora’s network of facilities will be capable of producing in excess of 500,000 kg per year of high-grade cannabis.

INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION

As new medical and adult consumer-use cannabis markets come on line globally, Aurora is well positioned to capitalize on new opportunities for expansion.

Aurora’s strategy for global markets currently sees the company with sales and operations in over 22 countries, across five continents.

ADULT CONSUMER USE

With a diversified product offering and strong consumer recognition, Aurora’s brands have had strong performance within the Canadian adult consumer-use market. The Company currently has four active brands in the Adult Consumer Use Sector:

  • Aurora – Grown in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, fed by fresh mountain air and crisp glacial water, Aurora offers an exemplary selection of high-quality cannabis products that are reliable and consistent.
  • Altavie – Superior cannabis products designed for the premium customer segment. AltaVie users are curious, discerning about life and searching for physical, mental and emotional enrichment.
  • San Rafael ’71 – Taking it back to where it all began. Created for the classic consumer, San Rafael ’71 was crafted to embody the Californian city and year where the west coast, laid-back vibe originated.
  • Woodstock – Known as one of the most significant cultural events of the 20th century, Woodstock takes its name from the 1969 festival that changed music history forever. Almost 50 years later, Woodstock is line of cannabis products for the thriving music and festival lover.

DIVERSIFICATION

The Company is rapidly diversifying its offering through acquisitions, R&D and strategic partnerships. This enables the Company to address multiple market segments, positioning Aurora for further rapid growth.
