The Company views the evolving Australian market as a significant near-term growth opportunity, and we are fully supportive of the Australian Government's decision to facilitate easier access to medicinal cannabis products for all approved prescribers.
With an expanding European distribution network and increasing product sales, Satipharm is well positioned to become a leader in the global supply of medicinal cannabis products, and the Company looks forward to providing shareholders with further updates on growth in this area of the business in the near-term."
