Tilray’s Impact on Cannabis Market Volatility, According to Analysts

Cannabis stocks have raised the legitimacy of the entire industry as publicly traded companies continue the development of the sector. Investors have also shown an eagerness to get exposure into the growth sector.

This investor sentiment, accompanied by a myriad of factors, is described by 420 Investor cannabis analyst Alan Brochstein as a perfect storm. This has led to one of the most incredible rallies in the public markets seen from Canadian cannabis licensed producer (LP) Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY).

The LP made its public debut on the Nasdaq exchange in July through an initial public offering (IPO) worth US$ 153 million. This was the first time a Canadian cannabis company had gone directly to a premier US listing instead of uplisting from a Canadian one.

The company didn’t appear out of nowhere; Tilray had steadily increased its production and kept up with the works from its public competitors, such as Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC,TSX:WEED) and Aphria (TSX:APH).

Tilray also launched a limited float of Class 2 common stock for the market to purchase and trade. Tilray’s parent company, Privateer Holdings, has a dominating controlling stake in the company’s Class 1 voting shares.

According to Nasdaq’s IPO data, the lockup expiration on new shares is January 15, 2019. This means no new shares will become available for investors until Privateer’s shares lock-up ends.

During an interview, Brochstein estimated Tilray was among the top five or seven LPs in Canada, with potential investors unaware of the company’s path.

Stock begins unseen rally

Following the Tilray IPO, which debuted at a price of US$ 17 and closed its first day at a price of US$ 22.39 per share, the new stock continued a steady increase until a rapid rise appeared.

This hike continued to levels never seen before for a Canadian cannabis producer in the public markets. Things escalated when shares of the producer rose 81.6 percent during the last two weeks of August. On August 31 the share price for Tilray was US$ 65.20

In September, the stock took off until the peak was found with Tilray establishing a new 52-week high of US$ 300 for its share price on September 19.

Tilray also found itself in the middle of rumors as a report showed alcohol producer Diageo (NYSE:DEO) was eyeing an entry point into the cannabis market.

Doug Waterson, CFO and portfolio manager with Faircourt Asset Management and manager of the Ninepoint UIT Alternative Health Fund, told the Investing News Network (INN) a “highly significant portion” of the gains for Tilray was its position with the Diageo entry.

“[Tilray is] a quality name in the space and it would make a good partner for someone looking to enter [such as a] beverage company,” Waterson said.

Criticism of Tilray’s stock impact on overall market

Tilray’s stock increase led to criticism of the cannabis industry and how investors were getting ahead of themselves since these companies haven’t reported substantial revenues to back up the valuations given.

The Canadian adult-use cannabis market will come online on October 17, opening a new source of revenue for companies that have signed supply agreements with the provinces. Until then, these producers have secured revenue through legal medical sales to cannabis patients.

A big critic of the performance of these pot stocks is Nic Easley, CEO of 3C Consulting and a managing partner with Multiverse Capital. At the Vancouver edition of the International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC), Easley told investors cannabis was a bubble three times worse than the infamous dotcom one.

Easley went as far as to say he thinks the market activity around stocks like Tilray will have a negative impact in the industry for years to come.

“Tilray’s stock is completely out of control… It’s going to hurt investor confidence in public markets and private markets,” Easley told INN.

The executive said investors could be in danger for not doing proper due diligence and criticised the disclosure seen from cannabis companies in the public markets so far.

In his weekly email alert to investors, Brochstein countered the argument of Tilray’s stock being a negative to the space. In his column Brochstein wrote:

Some worry that the deflation of the Tilray bubble may have negative consequences for the broader sector, but we disagree. In fact, we see the Tilray parabolic spike and the success of Cronos Group and Canopy Growth since they listed on major U.S. exchanges as a big positive.

Limited shares and investor eagerness motives behind Tilray’s rush

Brochstein explained a large portion of investors have little to no interest in OTC stocks or Canadian ones on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), TSX Venture (TSXV) or Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE).

“We have seen a lot of interest (price spikes, big volume) in several other non-OTC names with ties to the cannabis or hemp industries as well,” Brochestein wrote.

Brochstein said the demand for exposure into this space outweighs the supply for the time being. Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB) has revealed it will list on a premier US exchange and other producers like Aphria and CannTrust Holdings (TSX:TRST) have made similar expectations known to investors.

“This listing provides access to a broader investor audience who gain the opportunity to participate in our continued success,” Aurora Cannabis CEO Terry Booth said as part of the producer’s Q4 2018 report.

Another crucial factor seen as the catalyst for the growth Tilray’s shares took was the actual limited amount of stock available for purchase.

Once the stock started rising, and as the company’s market cap reached US$ 13.5 billion, financial experts noticed only approximately just over 17 million shares were available for trading.

Then, finally on September 20, Tilray slowed its unrelenting pace closing the trading session with a loss of 17.62 percent. Since then, the stock has declined an additional 43.58 percent and closed on Tuesday’s (September 25) session at a price of US$ 107.88.

On Tuesday the company saw a positive return with an 8.42 percent increase in value with a high of US$ 119.40.

Investor takeaway

Investors have patiently awaited validation on the cannabis market and Tilray’s stock path has provided a unique way to raise the name and appreciation of these pot stocks.

As more Canadian producers look to list in premier US exchanges, a more varied type of investor awaits the cannabis industry.

Sector Rotation Continues. Bullish for Stocks

What the Barrick-Randgold Merger Could Mean for the Gold Sector

Following Monday’s (September 24) Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX, NYSE:ABX) and Randgold Resources (LSE:RRS) US$ 18.3-billion merger, many market watchers have been optimistic that the deal will be a bullish event for gold and will act as a positive reinforcement for the sector as a whole.

The transaction has caused a plethora of industry insiders to theorize that the merger could act as a catalyst for additional mining deals while simultaneously creating reasons for investors to get excited about the yellow metal again.

“For the gold industry as a whole I think it is a shot in the arm that the industry needs. It’s showing that M&A [mergers and acquisitions] activity can happen and it can happen in a way where you can have a shakeup of an old-style, massive company like Barrick Gold,” Charles Cooper, head of mine economics at Metals Focus, told the Investing News Network (INN).

[Mark Bristow’s] style of leadership is about keeping a company lean and mean. Reducing costs, making sure that they’re much more competitive and ultimately he wants to return shareholder value,” he added.

According to Bloomberg, investors have been unimpressed and left wanting while mining companies struggle to strike a balance between protecting shareholder value and adding assets that could boost their output.

However, if the rally in both Barrick and Randgold shares following the merger announcement prove anything, it is that improved production prospects may be enough to keep them happy for the time being.

Commenting on the massive merger, Michael Siperco, an analyst at Macquarie Capital Markets, believes that the transaction will spur other gold deals, stating, “[t]he market may see a wave of consolidation we’ve waited for or at least cause the market to revisit the thesis.”

Meanwhile, David Garofalo, president and CEO at Goldcorp (TSX:G, NYSE:GG) said at the Denver Gold Forum that he sees this deal as a way to reverse the downward trajectory in reserves that the sector has been experiencing.

“Putting together companies of this scale, creating that critical mass [will hopefully] start to attract generalist investors back and attract fresh capital,” Garofalo noted.

As per Bloomberg’s intelligence data on 15 big gold producers, the yellow metal’s combined reserves still buried in mines, which is an indicator of production prospects, shrank by almost half from its peak in 2012 to 11.3 million ounces in 2017.

These declines highlight the urgency for mining companies to add projects to boost their production outlook and revive fading investor interest in the sector.

However, evidence from the deal currently being the talk of the town at the Denver Gold Forum in Colorado Springs, proves that the companies coming together has clearly lit a spark within investors.

Many of those who can’t stop talking about the merger are excited by the fact that the new deal could be the perfect jolt to a sector that has lost a lot of its shine.

Investors are also hopeful that the merger is a sign of things to come in terms of consolidation across gold companies.

“The industry needs more consolidation,” stated David Harquail, CEO of Franco-Nevada (NYSE:FNV).

“We’ve got way too many companies. We’ve been shrinking in terms of value, so we should be shrinking in terms of number of companies proportionate to the value,” he added.

As of 3:58 p.m. EST on Tuesday (September 25), Barrick was up 1.26 percent, trading at C$ 14.48, while Randgold was up 4.60 percent, trading at GBX 5,460.00.

Untouched Riches: The Growing Mining Industry of Guinea

The mining industry of Guinea has historically been underexplored, creating an opportunity for graphite mining and more.

The Republic of Guinea is one of the most mineral rich countries in the world, but it’s also subject to the challenges inherent to a poor nation in West Africa. Sitting on massive mineral reserves including the world’s largest reserve of Bauxite, Guinea is highly underexplored compared to its West African neighbors. Proper investment in the country’s infrastructure has the potential to transform one of the poorest nations on Earth, to the benefit of mining companies, but more importantly, to the benefit of the people of Guinea.

The Guinean government knows full well how important their mining sector is to the development of their country. The mining industry contributes more than 15 percent of Guinea’s GDP, and the government, which has come a long way in stabilizing and forcing out corruption in recent years, is committed to supporting that development. Today, the Guinean government offers international mining firms straightforward permitting and stability.

History of the mining industry of Guinea

The earliest records of the gold mining industry of Guinea dates back to before the Middle Ages. The gold mined in the land that would become modern day Guinea was instrumental to the growth of power of the medieval Mandingue empire. Ancient gold mining continued through the centuries carried out by a succession of West African empires.

As European explorers arrived in West Africa in the 16th century, Guinea was subjected to colonial rule with much of its native population falling victim to the Atlantic slave trade. The country fell under French rule in the 19th and early 20th centuries. As the country achieved independence in 1958, it’s mining industry became key to Guinea’s prosperity. Unfortunately, political and social unrest would lead to mismanagement of the mining sector. As international companies moved into the country’s neighbors, Guinea’s reserves stayed in the ground.

During the first decade of the 21st century, Guinea was the setting of conflict stemming from neighbouring nations. Political unrest as Guinea president Lansana Conte clung to power kept the country on the brink of civil war throughout the 2000s. Needless to say, mining activity during this decade was minimal.

The Guinea military seized power in the country immediately after the death of President Conte in 2008 and the coup has since been followed by a period of stabilization in Guinea. The country returned to civilian rule in 2010 with the electoral victory of President Alpha Conde, who has since established strong relationships with international mining companies. The new government, with help from the World Bank, quickly got to work updating and reforming the country’s mining code to make Guinea an attractive destination for international investment.

The mining industry of Guinea still has a long way to go, but it’s become an increasingly important part of the national economy. The country is now home to several active mines and prospective projects, and international interest in the jurisdiction is increasing.

Guinea became a member of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) in 2014. The EITI sets the standard for its 51 member countries for transparency and accountability in the natural resource sector. Through it’s EITI membership, Guinea can ensure international companies that processes involving mining contracts and licenses will be carried out above board. The EITI also helps to ensure that the mining industry benefits the people of Guinea through revenue collection, subnational revenue sharing, state-owned company management and public investments.

Guinea’s resources

Over a third of the global reserves of bauxite reside within the borders of the Republic of Guinea, with an estimated 40 billion tons. The country currently ranks sixth in the world for bauxite production, but heavy investment in Guinean bauxite is creating fast and sustained growth in the sector. Guinea’s Ministry of Mines and Geology estimates that at the current rate of growth, bauxite production could reach up to 60 million tons by 2020.

Guinea’s mineral wealth is far from limited to bauxite, with large quantities of high-grade iron ore reserve as well as graphite and nickel-cobalt. Perhaps even more so than with bauxite, these reserves remain relatively untouched. The country also hosts significant reserves of gold, diamonds and gemstones.

Another key factor to Guinea’s economic growth is the country’s potential for hydroelectric power production. Guinea’s hydropower potential is among the best in West Africa, but there’s work that needs to be done to realize that potential. Fortunately, that work seems to be underway. In September 2015, Guinea state owned utility corporation, Electricité de Guinee, commissioned the construction of a 240-megawatt hydroelectric facility on west central Guinea’s Konkoure River. Another, even larger, hydroelectric dam has recently been constructed at Souapiti, adding about 500 megawatts. Chinese state owned company International Water & Electric Corp has also commissioned a $ 526 million project that the company says will have an annual generating capacity of 965 million kilowatt hours.

As the country adds to its hydropower generation capacity, it significantly increases its potential for mineral processing at attractive costs.

Leading the way in the region

In July 2018, Guinea was appointed by the member states of the African Union (AU) to host the headquarters of the African Minerals Development Center (AMDC). The AMDC is an arm of the AU that specializes in implementing the organization’s African Mining Vision, which calls for an industry that comprises “a transparent, equitable and optimal exploitation of mineral resources to underpin broad-based sustainable growth and socio-economic development” by the year 2050. As part of the appointment process, the mining industry of Guinea was evaluated by an AU delegation and was found as being the ideal candidate to run this strategic initiative.

As a leader in the region, the government of Guinea understands that infrastructure development is key to the country’s economic growth. Hydropower is of course a primary focus for this development, but it’s by no means the only one. In late 2017, the International Monetary Fund approved the use of $ 650 million for non-concessional borrowing to finance improvements to infrastructure, higher education and water in Guinea. These infrastructure improvements include the rebuilding of Guinea’s RN1 national road and the Conakry urban road network as well as the construction of an electrical interconnection line. Representatives of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are working with the Guinean government to ensure that these projects are being carried out effectively and free from corruption, mitigating the risk of default.

Major players in the region

Recent stability and development in the mining industry of Guinea is already paying off in terms of interest from international mining firms.

Mining giant Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO) holds the massive Simandou mine located in the mountain range of the same name. The Simandou mine is one of the largest sources of high grade iron ore on earth having 2.4 billion tonnes of ore grading 65 percent iron metal. South African gold producer AngloGold (JSE:ANG) owns Guinea’s Siguiri gold mine. The historic Siguiri mine has been the site of gold mining for thousands of years and is today a major producer of Guinean gold. In 2016, AngloGold announced the investment of $ 400 million into gold production in Guinea.

Canadian resource company SRG Graphite Inc. (TSXV:SRG) rediscovered a graphite deposit in the southeast region of the country which had been left abandoned since Guinea’s independence in 1958. Now called the Lola graphite deposit, the project covers the largest surface graphite mineralization in the world. The company also owns a nickel-cobalt deposit off covering 1.96 square-kilometers near the borders of Cote d’Ivoire and Liberia, 5km away from its Lola graphite deposit.

Takeaway

As a poor nation with a troubled past, Guinea is looking to its massive in-ground riches as its best hope for development and future prosperity. The government’s willingness to cooperate with international institutions and the private sector is going a long way towards attracting the international companies capable of aiding the development of a successful and responsible mining industry of Guinea.

GéoMégA Subsidiary, Innord, Receives Funding from the Government of Canada

Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV:GMA) is pleased to announce that Innord Inc. (“Innord”), a private subsidiary controlled by GéoMégA, has been approved for conditional funding from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) for an amount of up to $ 350,000 over a period of 18 months to advance the scale up work on the ISR technology for recycling rare earth elements in the permanent magnet industry.

The ISR technology has been developed with focus on the permanent magnet industry which is the driver of the rare earth elements market. It is an eco-friendly alternative to rare earth production that is organic-solvent-free and versatile, or in other words, is applicable to both recycling and to concentrates from the mining industry. The technology offers recovering of the major reagents through its uniquely integrated recycling system and full removal of iron without any roasting and no CO2 emission. The ISR separation technology is not dependant on metal ion distribution equilibrium between phases and does not suffer from phase inversion or hydrodynamic interface control which makes it easy to handle and a readily scalable technique compared to Solvent Extraction (SX). All these factors combined show promise for the ISR technology to offer a competitive alternative at a low capital cost to the solvent extraction method currently in use.

“In 2015, when we received our first support from NRC IRAP, we were in the infancy of the separation technology developments. Three years later we can see the progress achieved which will be advanced through this new funding. Canada is committed to clean technology initiatives and everything we have developed and demonstrated to date supports the global transition to a low-carbon, low-pollution and resource-efficient economy. We would like to thank NRC IRAP for their support which we believe will bring significant benefits to Canada in the field of rare earth elements and permanent magnets,” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.

About GéoMégA (www.geomega.ca)

GéoMégA is a mineral exploration and evaluation company focused on the discovery and sustainable development of economic deposits of metals in Québec. GéoMégA is committed to meeting the Canadian mining industry standards and distinguishing itself with innovative engineering, stakeholders’ engagement and dedication to local transformation benefits. GéoMégA holds over 17.8M shares and over 20% of Kintavar Exploration Inc. who is advancing the Mitchi stratiform copper project in Quebec.

About Innord Inc.
Innord is a private subsidiary of GéoMégA of which GéoMégA owns 96.1%. The goal of Innord Inc. is to develop and optimize the proprietary separation process of rare earth elements based on electrophoresis, for which it holds all the rights. Electrophoresis is the migration of charged species (ions, proteins, particles) in solution in the presence of an electric field. Innord has filed patents in Canada and the United States to protect its novel separation process and is looking to file in other jurisdictions.

Aurora Q4 Update Reveals Incoming US Listing

Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB)  revealed its Q4 and 2018 fiscal year results on Monday (September 24), giving investors a closer look at its revenues and upcoming plans to list in the US.

Aurora reported a growth in revenue for the quarter, representing a 223 percent improvement over the same time period last year. The cannabis producer generated C$ 19.1 million in revenue during Q4.

According to the company, this uptick in revenue was due to a “higher average selling price, per gram of dried cannabis, coupled with a higher proportion of cannabis oil sales.”

The company also indicated in its financials that it expects to produce 150,000 kilograms of cannabis per year at the end of Q2 2019, once all of its licensed facilities are at full capacity.

As part of its expansion, the company secured a C$ 200 million debt facility with the Bank of Montreal (TSE:BMO) in September. At the end of the quarter the producer held an C$ 89 million cash position.

US listing will offer new investors chance for cannabis exposure

In its report, the company confirmed a premier US exchange listing is coming. Aurora CEO, Terry Booth, said the listing would give access to a “broader investor audience” the opportunity to participate in the company.

The company will file a registration form with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and will seek, pending approval, its proper US exchange.

The company would be joining Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC,TSX:WEED), Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY), and Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON,TSX:CRON) as Canadian cannabis licensed producers listed across these US exchanges.

Aurora’s pending US listing will arrive following the company’s decision to spin off a separate entity, Australis Capital (CSE:AUSA), which is set to pursue opportunities in the US multistate operator business model.

Australis made its public debut on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) on September 19. Aurora shareholders obtained a stake in the new venture as part of the launch.

During an investor and analyst conference call on Tuesday (September 25), management of the company was asked whether this upcoming US listing will affect the potential for the company to find an established partner outside of cannabis.

Aurora was at the center of rumors of The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) potentially entering the cannabis space through a partnership looking to develop infused wellness beverages.

Management of the producer was also asked whether the company is inclined to look for a deal in which it retains control or find a partner to take over.

Booth said while it is exciting to see the entry of large companies with no relation to cannabis, Aurora is not “in the mood to be selling out anytime soon.”

“When you start to see the revenues that this company is going to generate on a global basis, then you will see even more attraction coming from these larger companies,” Booth said.

Cam Battley, chief corporate office for Aurora, added the company is well positioned for a deal but is also holding reservation on the type of deal it makes.

In terms of the US listing moving the needle for a potential deal with an established player, Battley said the new investing option “won’t affect things immediately.” Rather, Battley said, it is seen as a move to allow the entry of more investors.

Investor takeaway

Stock for Aurora quickly increased in value during Tuesday’s early trading session. The company rose to a share price of C$ 12.92, indicating a 5.30 percent increase, as of 1:25 p.m. EST.

Will buyers consider coin and stamp set valuable?

Breast Cancer Awareness proof clad half dollar sales stand at 16,615.

Can the Mint sell an additional 25,000 of them if the 2018-S commemorative coin is paired with a stamp and the price is increased by $ 7 to $ 39.95?

We will find out Oct. 1 when the 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin and Stamp Set becomes available on the Mint’s website.

A household order limit of one has been set by the Mint.

This is the same limit given to the palladium proof coins Sept. 6.

The implication of this limit is the set will be a hot item.

The grading services are jumping in.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and its sister company, Authenticated Stamp Guaranty, will slab the two elements of the set separately.

The stamp has elicited huge interest in the past.

NGC said, “The stamp has raised $ 88 million since it was first issued in 1998. The first ‘semipostal’ (fund-raising) stamp in U.S. history, it contains a colorful image of the goddess of the hunt, along with the words ‘Fund the Fight. Find a Cure.’”

Keen-eyed coin collectors will notice the 100-point grading scale employed on the the stamp slab.

Last week’s suggestion by Ron Guth of a 100-point grading scale for coins has elicited many reactions from readers of Numismatic News.

Will this help fuel interest in the special set?

This is the hope of the Mint and the recipient of the $ 5 per coin surcharge income.

Will all 25,000 coins sell and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of New York City get a check for $ 125,000 from their sale?

That depends on the actions of average collectors, as well as the new issue speculative posse that rides to the charge in hopes that special Mint issues will go up in price on the secondary market.

The $ 39.95 sales price is affordable.

There is a hope that stamp collectors will take an interest, enlarging the potential market.

Will secondary market buyers realize that the 2018-S half dollar can be purchased without the stamp for $ 32.95?

They might not even look past the “limited edition” designation and the household order limit.

So get ready, get set, and go to the Mint’s website at noon Eastern Time Oct. 1.

Five Star Diamonds Discovers New Kimberlite in Brazil

Five Star Diamonds Limited (TSXV:STAR) has released the results from an ongoing diamond drilling programme at the Catalao project. The findings highlight the discovery of a new kimberlite.

Five Star Diamonds is focused on developing its position in the Brazilian kimberlite diamond sector.  The precious gem explorer currently owns 23 diamond projects comprising an aggregate of 41 exploration licences and applications across 76,426 hectares.

As quoted from the press release:

CATALAO DIAMOND PROJECT

The Catalao diamond project is located in Goias State, Brazil and contains an indicated mineral resource of 517,000 tonnes grading 23.5 cpht and additional inferred mineral resources of 7.76 Mt grading 26.7 cpht, both estimated based on a US$ 200/ct average carat value. The actual project resources were distributed in three kimberlite pipes named CAT-01A, CAT-01B and CAT-01C (together “CATs-01ABC”). The indicated resources represent the upper oxide zone of the three pipes and the inferred resources are related to the fresh material.

As previously announced, the company has acquired the majority of the equipment to commence mining at the oxide zone.  A dense media separator plant and major equipment is already on site. The construction of the DMS plant is expected to take 6-8 months from receipt of final funding with production of the oxide material from CATs-01ABC to commence shortly thereafter. The decision to bring the Catalao mine in to production, specifically CATs-01ABC, is not based on a feasibility study establishing mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability and thus may increase uncertainty and specific risks of failure associated with this production decision.

In early August 2018, Five Star started a diamond drilling programme to test new exploration targets which were selected based on the results of a detailed ground magnetic survey and a shallow auger drilling programme previously developed by the company since exploration activities started in 2015.

NuRAN to Provide Mobile Operators with 2G, 3G, 4G Capabilities from a Single Piece of Equipment

NuRAN Wireless Inc. (CSE:NUR, FWB:1RN, OTCMKTS:NRRWF) (“NuRAN Wireless” or the “Company”), a leading supplier of mobile and broadband wireless infrastructure solutions, announces that it will offer mobile network operators (MNO’s) with evolutive multi-standard 2G, 3G, 4G (LTE) radio access network solutions thereby expanding its portfolio to address a broader market.

Under development with planned availability in 2019, NuRAN’s LiteCell xG is a carrier-grade tower-mount mobile radio access equipment which may be operated in any combination of 2G, 3G, and 4G to maximize network access to subscribers through the simultaneous support of different technologies. Built from the ground up as a software-defined radio, LiteCell xG provides the flexibility and upgradability which operators are seeking in order to deliver the most appropriate services and evolve those services as needs arise with minimal intervention.

NuRAN expects its multi-standard solution to significantly widen its market base from strictly rural to rural and suburban greenfield deployments, as well as qualifying for infrastructure upgrade programs, including the replacement of existing 2G-only equipment.

“LiteCell xG will simplify the life of operators who are often faced with the dilemma of which technology should be deployed while considering current and future needs. Without compromising on cost or performance, they will be able to install a single piece of equipment, and at any time decide which services should be offered, based on user uptake”, states Martin Bedard, CEO of NuRAN Wireless. LiteCell xG is in direct response to what tier-one operators have requested from NuRAN for their future rollouts, and we are confident that it will get adopted at scale”, added M. Bedard.
