Horizons ETFs Rebalances Marijuana-Focused Index ETF Suite

TORONTO – October 6, 2020 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) has completed the quarterly rebalance of the constituent holdings of the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (“HMMJ”:TSX) and the Horizons US Marijuana Index ETF (“HMUS”:NEO).

HMMJ is the world’s first ETF offering direct exposure to North American-listed securities that have significant business activities in the marijuana industry. This quarter, seven constituents were removed from HMMJ’s portfolio:

Deletions

Company Name Ticker Exchange
Agraflora Organics International Inc. AGRA CSE
Supreme Cannabis Co. FIRE TSX
Khiron Life Sciences Corp. KHRN TSX-V
Namaste Technologies Inc. N-X TSX-V
Pharmacielo Ltd. PCLO TSX-V
Sundial Growers Inc. SNDL NASDAQ
WeedMD Inc. WMD TSX-V

 

HMMJ is an index (or passively managed) ETF, which seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the North American Marijuana Index, net of expenses. This index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of North American publicly listed life sciences companies with significant business activities in the marijuana industry. The North American Marijuana Index selects from a current universe of companies that have operations that may include one or more offerings of biopharmaceuticals, medical manufacturing, distribution, bio-products and other ancillary businesses related to the marijuana industry. Securities within HMMJ’s index generally have a market capitalization of greater than C$75 million.

Despite a strong recovery in Q2 2020 following the market volatility in March, Canada’s marijuana industry struggled in the third quarter in the face of COVID-19’s continued pressure on businesses and a lack of positive news to buoy the sector,” said Steve Hawkins, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. “Additionally, growing confidence in potentially increasing federal political support for U.S.-based multi-state operators (MSOs) has resulted in net new money in the sector being increasingly allocated to U.S. names rather than the Canadian licensed producers.

Rebalancing of the North American Marijuana Index, and consequently HMMJ, occurs each calendar quarter. At that point, all stocks eligible for inclusion in the index are generally re-weighted by their respective market capitalization.

The holdings of HMMJ and its current portfolio weights are regularly updated and available at https://horizonsetfs.com/HMMJ. It is important to note that HMMJ may not hold all of the constituent names in its index. The manager of the HMMJ, through the use of a stratified sampling strategy, may invest in securities that closely match the investment characteristics of HMMJ's index, provided they are consistent with the ETF's investment objectives and strategies.

The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns, including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. The ETF is not guaranteed, its value changes frequently, and past performance may not be repeated.

HMUS REBALANCE

HMUS is the world’s first U.S.-focused marijuana index ETF. HMUS seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the US Marijuana Companies Index, net of expenses. This index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of publicly listed companies having significant business activities in, or significant exposure to, the marijuana or hemp industries in the United States. Constituents of this index are selected from Canadian and U.S. exchanges. While some securities may be listed on major North American exchanges, the majority of the securities currently trade on North American exchanges that include but are not limited to the Canadian Securities Exchange and the Aequitas NEO Exchange.

This rebalance resulted in four additions and three removals from the portfolio:

Additions

Company Name Ticker Exchange
4Front Ventures Corp. FFNT CSE
ICanic Brands Company Inc. ICAN CSE
Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. RWB CSE
Tuscan Holdings Corp. THCAU NASDAQ

 

Deletions

Company Name Ticker Exchange
Flower One Holdings Inc. FONE CSE
iAnthus Capital Holdings Inc. IAN CSE
Slang Worldwide Inc. SLNG CSE

 

The outlook for the U.S. cannabis industry has surged with the increasing possibility of a Democrat victory in November, particularly following Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ recent statements in support of decriminalization and legalization,” said Mr. Hawkins. “Despite continued federal restrictions on their businesses, U.S. MSOs have continued to scale-up and strengthen their brands and could be well-poised to challenge Canada’s LPs at home and on a global level once critical legislation permits them.

Rebalancing of the US Marijuana Companies Index, and consequently HMUS, occurs each calendar quarter. At that point, all stocks eligible for inclusion in the index are generally re-weighted by their respective market capitalization.
