Health Canada recently granted Ascent's subsidiary Agrima an extension until Dec. 17 after suspending and proposing to revoke its producer and dealer licenses.

The company said there was no defined timeline for the strategic review, and it could result in a number of outcomes (or none). There is "no assurance that the company will pursue or execute any specific action or transaction," the company said in a release, adding it does not intend to make any further comments on the matter unless required by law. 

Shares of Ascent were at C$0.19 on Wednesday.
