Berlin, May 11, 2023 – Cantourage Group SE (hereinafter “Cantourage,” ISIN: DE000A3DSV01), a leading European company for the production and distribution of cannabis-based pharmaceuticals, has, according to preliminary and unaudited figures, achieved a profit of EUR 0.1 million for the first time in the first quarter of 2023 on sales of EUR 4.8 million. Only six months after its listing in the Scale Segment of Deutsche Börse, Cantourage sees itself on the path to long-term profitability, encouraged by its successful recent results. According to preliminary and unaudited figures, 2022 will close with a loss of approximately EUR 2.4 million.
“With the positive first quarter of 2023, we are demonstrating that it is already possible to compete profitably in the medical cannabis market. At such an early stage of our development, this is a satisfactory result. Sales increases and improved purchasing processes and conditions have supported this development,” explains Bernd Fischer, CFO of Cantourage.
“We have achieved a great deal over the last 6 months and have proven that we are growing profitably. There is discontent among some cannabis companies regarding the form of cannabis legalization – but not for us: our business model works completely independently of any legalization of cannabis. The European markets for medical cannabis are still in their infancy. With our business model, we can quickly and successfully open up new, growing sales markets today and in the future – without having to accept high losses,” Philip Schetter, CEO of Cantourage, adds.
Cantourage is a leading European producer and distributor of cannabis-based medicinal preparations and drugs. The Berlin-based company was founded in 2018 by industry pioneers Norman Ruchholtz, Dr. Florian Holzapfel and Patrick Hoffmann. With an experienced management team and its “Fast Track Access” platform, Cantourage enables producers from around the world to become part of the growing European medical cannabis market faster, easier and more cost-effectively by processing and distributing their cannabis raw materials and extracts. In this context, Cantourage ensures compliance with the highest European pharmaceutical quality standards at all times. The company offers pharmaceutical-grade products in all relevant market segments: dried flower, extracts, dronabinol and cannabidiol. Cantourage was listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on November 11, 2022 and is listed under ticker symbol “HIGH”.
