Tilray, Inc. (TLRY) Accused of Misleading Shareholders
According to the complaint, on January 15, 2019, Tilray announced its entry into a marketing and revenue sharing agreement with Authentic Brands Group ("ABG"), touting that "through this agreement, Tilray and ABG [will] join forces at the intersection of science and brand to connect consumers with innovative health and wellness products."
