Tilray will acquire CAD$243.3m ($193m)) of Hexo senior secured convertible notes from HT Investments, with the right to convert them to Hexo shares at CAD0.85 ($0.65) per share. The debt will bear interest at a rate of 5% per annum, lasting three years to 1st May 2026. Tilray will have the option of either having the loan repaid plus accrued interest or, prior to maturity, converting any amount owed into the ownership position in Hexo.
