Kanata, Ontario, CANADA

GATINEAU, Quebec, Dec. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HEXO Corp (“HEXO” or the “Company”) (TSX: HEXO; NASDAQ: HEXO) today announced that its fiscal 2021 annual meeting of shareholders will be held on March 8, 2022 and that its board of directors has fixed the close of business on February 4, 2022 as the record date for determining which shareholders will be entitled to receive notice of and voting at the meeting. HEXO further announces that it has received an extension from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) permitting it to hold the upcoming annual meeting of shareholders after January 31, 2022, being later than six months after the end of its last financial year.
