August 2nd, 2019
Exclusive, News, Top Story, Uncategorized
Only days after announcing that its wholly owned subsidiary was awarded a German cannabis and cultivation and extraction licence, XPhyto Therapeutics is ready to enter the public domain. With a final prospectus filed with the British Columbia Securities Commission, XPhyto is ready to go public on the CSE under the ticker “XPHY”. The company will begin trading on the CSE on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
Dual Market Focus: Germany
From its corporate headquarters in Vancouver, XPhyto is developing its business as a leader in formulation, processing, and clinical validation in two of the world’s most active markets, Canada and Germany. Germany, the largest economy in the European Union and second largest federally regulated medical cannabis market in the world (behind the U.S.), is seeing tremendous acceleration in cannabis demand, including importing nearly 2,500 kilograms for medical purposes in the first half of 2019. That’s almost as much as was imported in all of 2018 and more than twice as much as 2017.
Right now, Germany relies 100% on imports to supply is burgeoning medical cannabis market. Based upon some recently issued licenses, it will be until at least late in 2020 before any domestic cannabis will be available for medical purposes.
It is this growth that underscores Arcview Market Research forecasting Germany’s cannabis market to experience a whopping 76.8% compound annual growth rate to reach $1.6 billion by 2022.
Last Wednesday, the Company announced that its wholly owned German subsidiary, Bunker Pflanzenextrakte GmbH, was awarded a cannabis cultivation and extraction licence for scientific purposes from the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, better known as BfArM. Bunker still has to pass BfArM’s security requirements, which isn’t expected to be an issue considering the company operates from a monitored high-security area in Bavaria that previously served as a German air force command center and nuclear bunker.
Bunker has a long-term lease for the entire facility with 10,741 square feet for the initial buildout and nearby space available for expansion.
The new licence authorizes Bunker to cultivate and extract up to 70 different strains of cannabis sativa and indica for scientific R&D.
With the new licence in tow, Bunker is next applying for licenses that will allow for cannabis import, storage, distribution and manufacturing. The license estate is at the heart of Bunker’s plans to serve as a one-stop shop providing a bevy of products and services spanning genetic research and storage, cultivation, extraction, storage, processing, packaging, distribution and more.
Dual Market Focus: Canada
Canada made history last year when it became the first G7 country to legalize adult-use marijuana. Supply shortages and regulatory challenges kept the industry from getting off to the rip-roaring start analysts expected, but that hasn’t stopped Arcview Market Research and partner BDS Analytics from forecasting the Canadian cannabis market reaching $5.2 billion by 2024.
XPhyto’s operations in Canada are centered on in-house production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis-derived compounds, developing proprietary formulas and conducting modern clinical research for diseases and conditions with unmet medical need where cannabis could be a viable option. They also offer third-party commercial analytical testing for licensed producers, wholesalers, distributors and law enforcement.
Management is advancing these operations through strategic collaborations that accelerate the process with other collateral benefits. For instance, XPhyto has two five-year agreements with the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. This partnership provides XPhyto with certified analytical testing capability, as well as a certified extraction, isolation, and formulation facility.
This is a tremendous capital saver for XPhyto as its cost to entry pales in comparison to the value of the world-class infrastructure, not to mention potential maintenance costs in the future. Furthermore, The University of Alberta is well known for its expertise in biopharmaceutics, drug delivery quality control and regulatory sciences. An authority like that as a strategic partner gives XPhyto immediate brand recognition as a high quality service provider and access to talent that other companies simply do not easily come by.
XPhyto is hitting the ground running when it comes public as it looks to fill a void between cannabis and modern medical science. They have secured a collaborative partner in the esteemed experts at the University of Alberta to capitalize on the opportunity with minimal capex while the Bunker acquisition – along with its assets – give XPhyto a first mover advantage in the burgeoning German market.
XPhyto will commence trading on the CSE on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, which should have investors keen to participate in the next wave of cannabis opportunities – medical formulations and emerging European markets.
