The deal to close the giant merger between Aphria and Tilray will take about two weks or more to finalize. While Aphria said its shareholders overwhlemingly approved the transaction with 99.38% support, Tilray said it will extend its voting deadline to April 30th to allow its shareholders more time to vote on the deal. Tilray, which has one of the largest retail investor bases in the cannabis sector, also announced it would amend its bylaws to allow a lower number of voters to meet quorum, moving its requirement down to one-third of all outstanding shares rather than a majority of shareholders.
