Horizons ETFs Rebalances the Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF (HMJR)
TORONTO – March 29, 2019 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs”) has completed the quarterly rebalance of the constituent holdings of the Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF (“HMJR:NEO”). HMJR seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Emerging Marijuana Growers Index, net of expenses. The Emerging Marijuana Growers Index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of primarily North American publicly listed smallcapitalization companies primarily involved in the cultivation, production and/or distribution of marijuana. HMJR invests in small-market-capitalization companies with market capitalizations generally between CAD $50 million and CAD $500 million. The ETF’s portfolio is 100% invested in marijuana producers and distributors, and it can have exposure to companies outside of North America.
The HMJR portfolio recently expanded to include the following constituents:
|Cresco Labs Inc.||CL||Canadian Securities Exchange|
|CLS Holdings USA, Inc.||CLSH/U||Canadian Securities Exchange|
|C21 Investments Inc.||CXXI||Canadian Securities Exchange|

“The Marijuana equity sector continues to expand globally. This quarter, we saw the portfolio add another 15 new stocks, including its first Israeli-listed company, Together Pharma Ltd.,” said Steve Hawkins, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. “As the Marijuana equity sector expands globally with increased legalization of medical and recreational cannabis, we anticipate the universe of eligible names for HMJR to continue to grow.”

It is important to note that HMJR may not hold all of the constituent names in its index.
