Dermapharm Holding SE acquires a stake in cannabis producer for pharmaceutical applications

Grünwald, March 4, 2019 - Dermapharm Holding SE (WKN: A2GS5D, ISIN: DE000A2GS5D8) concluded an agreement today to acquire a stake in the companies FYTA Company B.V. and FYTA Tech B.V., both headquartered in Waalwijk, Netherlands, as well as FYTA Company GmbH and FYTA Vermögensverwaltung GmbH, both headquartered in Monheim, Germany. By signing the contract, Dermapharm Holding SE is acquiring 20.00 percent of the shares in the companies specializing in the production of medical cannabis for pharmaceutical applications with effect from March 4, 2019. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The approval required for medical cannabis production was granted by the Dutch regulatory authority (CIBG)(1) on February 25, 2019.
