Management Commentary
“In Q3, we achieved strong results and broke revenue and profitability milestones, surpassing our first million dollars in medical cannabis revenues and gross profits. Prescription growth were driven by our patient-focused operations in Colombia and Germany. In the first 9 months of 2021, we have already exceeded 2020 medical cannabis sales by more than 600% while maintaining medical cannabis margins of over 89%. ” comments Alvaro Torres, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company.

Mr. Torres continues, “As expected, Europe is becoming a more significant region for Khiron, representing 31% of our medical cannabis revenue. With the opening of ZereniaTM Clinics in the UK, we have now established an international clinic footprint that will continue to drive sustainable growth in the future. A year ago, our Company was just starting medical cannabis sales in Colombia, and now we have 15 clinics, in 5 countries, and soon in Mexico. We are very excited about our quarterly growth rate, and the growing evidence that Khiron is fulfilling its mission to improve the quality of life of our patients.”
