    Will EXMceuticals become a SPAC?

    Canadian company EXMceuticals announced after yesterday's close that the originally planned transaction with Global Cannabinoids had to be cancelled due to difficult conditions in the cannabis market. At the same time, Jonathan Summers is stepping down as CEO, but will remain on board as chairman of the company. Julie Lemieux has been named the company's new CEO to evaluate alternative business opportunities, according to the release. It sounds like EXMceuticals will be looking for a new use after commencing trading as a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).
