Flora Growth (NASDAQ: FLGC), a leading all-outdoor cultivator and manufacturer of global cannabis products and brands, has inked a definitive agreement with Franchise Global Health Inc. (TSX.V: FGH), a multinational operator in the medical cannabis and pharmaceutical industry. The agreement outlines Flora Growth’s plans to acquire 100% of Franchise Global Health, which has principal operations in Germany, in an all-stock transaction. According to the agreement, the acquisition gives FLGC a foothold in German’s medical cannabis space because FGH’s German businesses service an estimated 1,200 pharmacies in the country; FGH also provides noncannabis medical products to 28 additional countries. In the first six months of this year, FGH reported revenue of approximately C$30.1 million; total aggregated reported revenues for both companies for the period ended June 30, 2022, reached $38.6 million. The agreement calls for Flora Growth’s indirect acquisition of FGH’s subsidiaries, including Phatebo GmbH, a leading distributor of export pharmaceuticals and medical cannabis products to the European Union, and ACA Müller ADAG Pharma Vertriebs GmbH, which holds the first German medical cannabis import and distribution license ever granted. “Through this proposed acquisition, we are connecting our commercial infrastructure and medical cannabis product portfolio to the German and EU medical markets, while gaining direct access to European pharmaceutical distributions,” said Flora Growth chair and CEO Luis Merchan in the press release. “We believe Franchise will significantly increase our commercial international revenue and provide essential distribution to German pharmacies and a growing wholesale market.”
