Insurance reimbursements for medical cannabis prescriptions are expected to exceed €100-million in 2019 making Germany Europe's largest medical cannabis market. Since legalization in 2017, Germany has been predominantly supplied by Canada and the Netherlands. However, other countries are developing pharmaceutical-grade cultivation standards in order to export to Germany as demand and insurance coverage for prescriptions continues to expand.
AMP qualifies its suppliers to ensure they can meet the German EU-GMP certification standards. Beginning this year, AMP plans to enter into definitive supply agreements with several EU-GMP certified Canadian suppliers for three strains of unprocessed cannabis flower. AMP will also be developing European supply sources from countries like Denmark and Portugal and outside Europe from countries like Israel and Australia to meet the growing German demand. Last year, AMP developed its logistics supply chain to import EU-GMP certified medical cannabis into Germany and subsequently sell to pharmaceutical distributers who supply pharmacies, the only authorized point-of-sale to German patients with medical prescriptions.
Management Commentary Dr. Stefan Feuerstein, President and Director of AMP comments, "Dutch and Canadian imports will begin this year and from European countries soon after. We anticipate the demand will continue to increase for the foreseeable future as the doctors and pharmacists learn more about the medical benefits of cannabis to German patients."
Mr. Alex Blodgett, CEO and Director of AMP comments, "AMP will be earning revenue from imports in Q1 and generating operating cashflow soon after when import volumes increase from Canada.".
