  1. Thanks! Great to see this information and well deserved by Charlotte’s web. Do you think NYSE or NASDAQ listing is going to increase institutional shareholding and also the pedigree of institutions as well?


  2. Pyxus has around 60% institution ownership. Cweb is 2nd highest according to my calculations
