It is a transition period, the last line of a long-term strategic process for the expansion of European markets and the exit from secondary activities in Israel, which are not at the core of the company’s business. This process is expected to materialize significantly in the upcoming quarters. As part of the process, we have decided to exit activities in Israel, that are characterized by high competition and low profitability, and during that time, we have sold the distribution and logistics activities.
“The extensive resources we have invested in recent years have begun to bear fruits. We are expecting to start exporting medical cannabis extracts for inhalation, the only kind approved for marketing in Germany and throughout Europe. This is good tidings for patients, who avoid smoking medical cannabis for various reasons. It is also a powerful growth and profitability engine, with the potential to reach a significant market share In Europe, similar to mature markets in North America. Meanwhile, we continue regulatory registration of our products in Greece, Denmark and Poland, and look forward to beginning sales of products designed for the Oncology field in partnership with the German pharma company, Axio-Novo, this year. We intend to enter any market that has a medical cannabis regulation in Europe, based on our relative advantages”.
