- First trading day is scheduled for 11 November 2022
- Company has achieved high double-digit valuation as part of the placement
Cantourage Group SE (“Cantourage”), a European medical cannabis leader, announced today that it is seeking a listing on the Scale segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on 11 November 2022. Following the listing, approximately 15% of the company’s shares, a total of nearly two million bearer shares, will be made available in free float on the open market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Following the previously completed private placement, Cantourage will now be valued in the high double-digit million-euro range.
Philip Schetter, CEO of Cantourage, says: “Having already achieved revenues of over EUR 5 million in 2021, we are aiming to triple this amount in 2022, especially through Cantourage’s organic growth – and we are continuing to act in a strong growth market. We are happy about the successful private placement and the upcoming listing of our company. It is time to democratise the market for medicinal cannabis in Germany and offer investors the opportunity to participate early on.”
According to the German Ministry of Health, in 2021 Germany had the most patient demand for medical cannabis in Europe. More than 20 tons of cannabis for medical purposes have already been imported to Germany this year . Future national demand can only be met through further imports.
With the capital raised from the private placement, Cantourage plans to systematically expand its production capacities, enter new markets and prepare for the upcoming legalisation of recreational cannabis in various European countries. The capital market listing provides Cantourage with new avenues for both organic and inorganic growth within the dynamic medical cannabis market.
Founded in 2019 by Norman Ruchholtz, Dr. Florian Holzapfel and Patrick Hoffmann, Cantourage distributes medicinal cannabis flowers, Dronabinol, cannabis extracts and pharmaceutical CBD across Europe and the UK. Cantourage’s platform also enables the import of cannabis into Germany from across the world, for it to then be locally processed into pharmaceutical products and to be distributed to doctors and pharmaceutical wholesalers throughout Europe.
Currently, Cantourage maintains 38 partnerships with suppliers from 17 countries across 5 continents, thereby offering a broad and diversified range of products. In the Dronabinol segment, Cantourage has a market share of over 20% in Germany, driven in part by product innovations such as the launch of the first Dronabinol solution . Since the beginning of Q2/2022, Cantourage has also been operating its own cannabis clinic in the UK. The company currently employs over 35 employees in Germany and the UK.
The European market for medical cannabis targeted by Cantourage is estimated to grow to €3 billion by 2025 , while the size of potential markets in which cannabis could be sold for recreational use is significantly larger. In Germany alone, this market is estimated to be almost 20 times larger than the medical cannabis market .
Hauck Aufhäuser Investment Banking advised the company as its exclusive financial advisor and listing agent.
