Aurora Cannabis Announces Market Launch of Softgel Capsules

7:00 am ET December 3, 2018 (PR Newswire) Print

TSX | NYSE: ACB

Aurora Cannabis Inc. ("Aurora" or the "Company") (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) announced today that, further to its October 17, 2018 announcement that it had received a sales license from Health Canada permitting the sale of cannabis softgel capsules, the Company has commenced shipments for both the Canadian medical and adult-use markets. Aurora expects to commence exports to international markets in early 2019.

At scale, the Company anticipates that softgel production at its state-of-the-art Aurora Vie facility in Quebec will reach at least 1.4 million capsules per week. Aurora intends to make this high-volume, high-margin, smoke-free, product available to all of its domestic and international target markets over time where legally possible.

Aurora's softgel capsules are produced to pharmaceutical-grade standards at Aurora Vie, in collaboration with leading softgel manufacturer Capcium Inc. ("Capcium"), in which Aurora holds a 19.99% ownership interest. The Company will initially launch the capsules to the medical cannabis market in Canada as well as the adult-use market in British Columbia with additional provincial markets to follow.

The Company is initially launching four softgel product types, each available in bottles of 30 capsules, priced at $45 per bottle. The small, easy to digest soft gelatin capsules are colour-coded to distinguish between the different varieties for the protection of public health and safety. They are believed to the smallest cannabis capsules on the market. Aurora's softgels provide a dosage-controlled format that medical practitioners and consumers around the world need to facilitate more precise administration.

For the medical market, Aurora is launching three product types:

Aurora Indica Softgels: 8-10 mg/pill of THC Aurora Sativa Softgels: 8-10 mg/pill of THC?Aurora CBD Softgels: 8-10 mg/pill of CBD

For the BC consumer market, one product type will be available initially:

Aurora Liquid Gels: 8-10 mg/pill of CBD, targeted at the non-prescription wellness segment of the market

Additional product types and potencies will be made available in the coming months including softgel capsules that contain 5mg THC, 20mg CBD and 1:1 (5gm CBD and 5mg THC), plus softgels that employ a range of functional carrier oils.

Management Commentary

"Softgels are a high-volume, high-margin product for both the medical and adult-use markets that are in strong demand, and Aurora is one of few companies making these products available to patients and consumers alike," said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. "There is a strong momentum towards smoke-free, consistent dosage delivery technologies, and our softgels are a very familiar form factor that satisfy patient and consumer needs. We are delighted to have a preferred partnership with Capcium, whose technology is performing above our initial expectations, delivering high volumes of pharma-grade products."

Shane Morris, SVP Product Development and Regulatory Affairs, added, "Following our successful receipt of our sales license for softgels, we are now ready to start providing yet another type of delivery technology for our patients and customers. Production will be scaling up in the coming weeks, which will enable us to introduce this product to all our domestic and international target markets. We will also continue to develop new types of softgel products, broadening our offering to meet all medical and consumer needs."
