Canopy Growth said Thursday that three of its directors, who were each nominated by Constellation Brands, have resigned in connection with Constellation converting its equity stake in the company from common shares to a new class of exchangeable shares. The exchangeable shares won't carry any voting rights or rights to receive dividends, but can be converted back to common stock at Constellation's discretion. Constellation Chief Executive Bill Newlands said the move is aligned with the company's intent to "not deploy additional investment in Canopy." Canopy shares fell 7%, to $7.28, in aftermarket trading.
