    Went into a couple of Value Buds (owned by Sundial) stores last weekend in Alberta. Got the first positive indication that the buy out by Sundial might work out well for Valens shareholders. Every single Valens product they had, which was a LOT, was on the top shelf at eye level or highlighted on their big boards with advertising. Product placement was fantastic. First time I’ve seen this for Valens in any store that I’ve been in to date.

    Warren Buffets favorite mantra.... buy when everyone else is running away (selling).. If next week is like this week, I'll follow suit despite 89% loss so far. The good news here, We cant lose more than 100% of what we put in.... and that's guaranteed!!! (unless you are on margin)

    I think the acquisition of Valens by SNDL is a WIN/WIN transaction. The only problem, but it is important, is that the proportion of one share Valens for 0.3334 SNDL is too unfavorable to the shareholders of Valens. For me, the fair price should be 1=0.5. The general meeting in November will have to discuss this.

    Looks like this board is essentially dead. What's to discuss? Most people, like me, have to hold through this takeover and hope that SNDL takes off for some reason, like US legalization. Or there's some other news, which I have to say probably the worst would be the deal falls through, unless it's a juicy counter-offer from a gigantic booze or smoke company, which I highly doubt. I'm in hold and wait mode, and "wait" could mean a year.

    ..o0 "Hmm, I wonder what happens to SNDL's share price if US legalization becomes a thing? Just thinking out loud, but if that were to happen, I might actually break even on this investment".

    Does the rise in SNDL right now help VLNS holders

    Everyone, we independently need to asks ourselves, what multiple is reasonable to sell at, for example, let's say Valens generates GR of $80M 2022 and 80M shares, which equates to $1. Multiple of 2, is Valens worth $2/share instead of $1.26???? So I vote no, unless SNDL ups their bid.

    SNDL to acquire Superette. Without going into the details, a quick look at the news makes it look like SNDL had already provided some financing to Superette back in March, and now they're going to buy the company. This includes 6 retail locations in Toronto and Ottawa and a bunch of other stuff. Hmm, there's been plenty of talk about winners and losers emerging during this rationalization of the pot industry in Canada, I'm starting to like SNDL's chances of being in the winners' circle when the dust settles.

    funny how we dropped to their offer price now tell me we haven't been manipulated

    So 2022, avg analysis is $104M. Even if you use 2x's rev, $208M/80M shares = $2.60/share

    Valens mgmt is ripping off their shareholders

    VLNS is trading at about an 11% discount for what we should receive in SNDL shares... Does this seem a little much or is there an implication that this deal has a good chance of falling through? Thoughts???

    The fact that Tyler sold the company- knowing very well that most shareholders have a cost basis much higher than ~$1.20- all while claiming he wants to do whats best for shareholders speaks volumes to the kind of man he is, and how he values his company.

    How do you get someone to sell something that they don't want to sell? You offer them a boatload of cash. TR took the first offer he could and secured himself a golden parachute.
