(Reuters) - Aurora Cannabis Inc's (TO:ACB) (N:ACB) U.S.-listed shares fell nearly 14% in morning trade on Monday after the Canadian pot producer renewed an at-the-market offering under which it can raise as much as $350 million in equity capital.

The company said its board also approved a reverse stock split of 1:12 to boost its share price above $1, the minimum required to maintain a listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

Aurora's U.S.-listed shares were last trading below 80 cents.

Companies in the nascent marijuana industry had a rough 2019 and things are worsening this year, with many running out of cash at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has investors on the sidelines across all sectors.

Producers CannTrust Holdings Inc (TO:TRST) and James E Wagner Cultivation Corp (V:JWCAh) filed for bankruptcy protection two weeks earlier.

Edmonton, Alberta-based Aurora said on Monday it had about C$205 million ($146.8 million) cash as of March 31, including all the money it raised under the original at-the-market offering announced in May 2019.

Shares of other cannabis companies were also down on Monday with Tilray Inc (O:TLRY) down more than 8%, Hexo Corp (TO:HEXO) off 5% and Cronos Group Inc (TO:CRON) and Canopy Growth Corp (TO:WEED) down over 3%.

Shareholders are the owners of the company. When a company goes bankrupt, the shareholders are the last to be paid compensation if any. All the creditors are settled first as listed in law of bankruptcy. The shareholders are not likely to get anything.
