The company’s board of directors believes that the market price of the Common Shares may from time to time not reflect the underlying value of the Corporation, specifically its growth opportunities and that the proposed purchasing of its Common Shares is in the best interests of the Corporation and represents an appropriate use of corporate funds.
It is positive as it will reduce the number of shares and the float. Businesses carrying out this type of program show that they are confident in their company and their growth forecast. In addition, it augments the trust of current and potential investors in the business.
According to their last financial statement, Ayurcann has $1,886,817 in cash for $9,839,096M in total assets, for only $3M in liabilities.

The volume has increased steadily over the last 50 days. The steady positive amount of news shared by the company will attract new investors. The buyback program will also augment the average.
For now, we have several walls centered around $0.18 (exercise price for the warrants). There are 139k shares included in selling orders. It might lead to a halt in the increase of stock price. Besides, there are no big selling orders beyond these walls, meaning it will be easier for the stock price to get more value with the increased volume combined. So far, the Bollinger bands indicate daily fluctuations between $0.16 to $0.17, but with the increasing volume, positive data, and the walls being cleared soon, we should not see this price for long.
Ayurcann is moving toward the right way. Quants Report defines the stock as very undervalued and gives them a fair valuation of $0.31 (100% upside compared to the current SP). More will come as the company expects further sales with its exclusive partnership brands such as; Innocan Pharma, Her Highness, Joints, Hustle & Shake, Bravo6, Lucky Dragon. They are also creating products to meet the demand of Canadian consumers. The company’s undervalued position grants investors an excellent opportunity to either invest in the company or add more to their portfolio.
