Aurora Cannabis signs loan deal for up to $250 million with Bank of Montreal

The Canadian marijuana legalization date is Oct. 17

EDMONTON — Aurora Cannabis Inc. has signed a loan deal with the Bank of Montreal for up to $250 million.

Aurora chief executive Terry Booth called it the largest traditional debt facility in the cannabis industry to date.

Under the agreement, Aurora will receive a $150-million term loan and a $50-million revolving credit facility, both of which will mature in 2021.

A short period after Ottawa’s legislation to legalize and regulate recreational marijuana comes into effect in October, the company may request an increase of up to $45 million for the term loan.

BMO will also provide up to $5 million in other credit instruments.

The debt facility will be primarily secured by Aurora’s production facilities.
