Constellation Brands Announces Expiration of Canopy Growth Warrants
VICTOR, N.Y., Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ), a leading beverage alcohol company, announced today the expiration of all its warrants (“Warrants”) to purchase common shares (“Common Shares”) of Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy”). All 88,472,861 Tranche A warrants held by Constellation’s wholly-owned subsidiary, CBG Holdings LLC (“CBG”), expired as of November 1, 2023. Since the vesting of the remaining aggregate of 51,272,592 Tranche B and Tranche C warrants was conditioned on the exercise, in full, of the Tranche A warrants, the remaining Warrants are not, and will not become, exercisable by CBG. As a result, Constellation is no longer deemed to beneficially own any of the 139,745,453 Common Shares underlying the Warrants.
The 139,745,453 Common Shares underlying the Warrants would have represented an aggregate of approximately 16.9% of the Common Shares outstanding as of September 30, 2023. CBG and another subsidiary of Constellation, Greenstar Canada Investment Limited Partnership, now hold an aggregate of 171,499,258 Common Shares (representing approximately 20.7% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares) and C$100.0 million principal amount of the 4.25% promissory note due 2024 issued by Canopy.
Other than expiry of the Warrants and the terms of the previously disclosed consent agreement and voting support agreement with Canopy referenced in Constellation’s October 25, 2022 press release, Constellation has no other present plans or future intentions that relate to Canopy. Constellation may from time to time dispose of Common Shares or other securities of Canopy or conduct other transactions, in the future, either on the open market or in private transactions, in each case, depending on a number of factors, including general market and economic conditions, other available investment opportunities, regulatory developments, or other factors determined by Constellation. Depending on market conditions, general economic and industry conditions, Canopy’s business and financial condition, and/or other relevant factors, Constellation may develop other plans or intentions in the future.
A copy of the early warning report filed in connection with this press release will be available on Canopy’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or may be obtained by contacting Constellation’s Investor Center at 1-888-922-2150.

Havila Kystruten AS: Fourth quarter 2023 accounts28.2.2024 22:24:49 CET | Press release
Summary The company has completed its first quarter with full operation of all four ships. Revenue in the fourth quarter was MNOK 249. Due to late clarification on the delivery of the last two ships, the revenue side is somewhat lower than if the pre-sale had started earlier. The last quarter of 2023 ended with an average fleet occupancy of 60%, an average cabin rate (ACR) of NOK 3,100 and a utilization rate of 1.8 per cabin. Occupancy and average price per cabin are higher than the fourth quarter of 2022, but are somewhat lower than the third quarter due to lower demand in the autumn and winter months. EBITDA was negative by MNOK 33.2 in the fourth quarter and MNOK 179 for the full year. Operating costs amounted to MNOK 283 in the fourth quarter and are mainly ordinary operating costs for operating four ships. Some of the operating costs are related to the number of passengers, while the largest cost items are not significantly affected by occupancy. MNOK 18 relates to extraordinary m
