TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MPX Bioceutical Corporation (“MPX” or the “Company”) (CSE:MPX) (OTC:MPXEF) is pleased to announce its inclusion in the newly created Horizons Emerging Marijuana Growers Index ETF (AQN:HMJR) (“HMJR ETF” or the “Index”).

As Horizon’s second marijuana focused fund, the Index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of primarily North American publicly-listed small capitalization companies involved in the cultivation, production and/or distribution of marijuana. Stocks held within the Index will generally have an initial market capitalization of at least $50 million and less than $500 million, at the time of rebalancing, and up to a maximum market capitalization of $750 million. No issuer will represent more than 8% of the Index on each rebalance.

The HMJR ETF is expected to launch on February 14, 2018 and will trade on the Aequitas NEO Exchange.

MPX’s addition to the HMJR ETF is a significant milestone and a reflection of our growth and success to date. We anticipate our inclusion will help broaden our shareholder base and increase investor awareness. We will continue to work diligently to grow our presence in the U.S. and Canadian cannabis sectors, generating revenue growth and creating shareholder value.
