ERFURT, Germany and BERLIN, Oct. 15, 2019 /CNW/ - AMP German Cannabis Group Inc. ("AMP") (CSE: XCX), (Frankfurt: C4T, ISIN: CA00176G1028) through its wholly-owned subsidiary AMP Alternative Medical Products GmbH ("AMP Germany") has entered into a four-year, non-exclusive, distribution agreement with CC Pharma GmbH ("CC Pharma"), a leading distributer of EU-pharmaceuticals products to more than 13,000 pharmacies throughout Germany. The agreement provides for monthly shipments of imported European Union - Good Manufacturing Practice (EU-GMP) certified medical cannabis products starting in mid-2020 upon AMP fulfilling the contract's preconditions, including receiving a narcotic licence to import and distribute EU-GMP cannabis in Germany.
AMP has entered into two supply contracts and is in discussions with several Canadian producers for EU-GMP certified cannabis for import into Germany from Canada.

During 2018, CC Pharma generated revenue of approximately €262 million and EBITDA of approximately €10.5 million.

Dr. Stefan Feuerstein, Managing Director of AMP Germany, commented, "AMP appreciates the opportunity to supply CC Pharma, the leading medical cannabis distributer in Germany, with imported EU-GMP certified medical cannabis cultivated in Canada. This strategic relationship will establish AMP as an important importer of medical cannabis into Germany in the future."
Dr. Manfred Ziegler, Managing Director of CC Pharma, commented, "We are very pleased to have chosen AMP as they will have the ability to supply CC Pharma with medical cannabis from Canada."
