Background on Canopy Growth Corporation

Based in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canopy Growth is a global cannabis company and consumer packaged goods (“CPG”) organization. They sell a wide range of cannabis, hemp, and CPG products for recreational and medical use.

The Securities Fraud Claims

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose to investors that: (i) there were material weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls over accounting and financial reporting; (ii) as a result, the Company improperly booked sales of its BioSteel business unit; and (iii) as a result, the Company’s revenue was overstated.

On May 10, 2023, after the market closed, Canopy Growth announced that its audited financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2022, and the quarters ended June 30, 2022, September 30, 2022, and December 31, 2022, should no longer be relied upon and would need to be restated. The Company also disclosed that it “identified certain trends in the booking sales by the [BioSteel] business unit for further review.” On this news, Canopy Growth’s stock price fell $0.18, or 14.8%, to close at $1.04 per share on May 11, 2023, on unusually heavy trading volume.
