When Green Growth first announced its plans to buy the Leamington-Ontario-based company on December 27, Aphria said the offer "significantly submits" the business, and noted that the company did not receive a formal offer. Aphria did not respond to requests for comment on the offer on Tuesday afternoon, but in a blog after Tuesday Tuesday, the company advised shareholders not to take action regarding the offer.

Green Growth – which is supported by the Schottensteins, Ohio family that has built its fortune in business merchandise – has declined to comment or make executives available for an interview.

Regulators in Canada stopped both supplies at about 4 p.m. At the same time, the Aphria-listed parties continued to trade. Aphria's American rolls rose after the shutdown, but reassured behind after commercial hours after the news became known. Green Growth rose 6.9% in the regular session.

If the Green Growth tries to buy Aphria successful, it would mean significant changes to existing Aphria shareholders. The Toronto Stock Exchange, or TSX, and New York Stock Exchange – the two exchanges that list Aphria – do not allow companies that violate federal rules to list stock. Since Green Growth works illegally under the federal law of the United States, it is likely to trade the Canadian Security Changes – as Green Growth is now doing – and over the contract in the United States.
