DanCann Pharma A/S: DanCann Pharma A/S enter exclusive agreement with Cannassure Therapeutics to be multinational distributor for Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland)

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, 15 December 2020 - DanCann Pharma A/S (SS: DANCAN) ("DanCann Pharma" or the "Company") hereby today announce that the Company has entered into an agreement (the "Distribution Agreement") with Cannassure Therapeutics Ltd. (TASE: CSURE) ("Cannassure") to be the exclusive multinational distributor of the Israelian-based company’s product portfolio for whole Scandinavia ("the Territory").

The Distribution Agreement

Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, DanCann Pharma will be the exclusive Scandinavian distributor for the product portfolio from Cannassure, including all Cannassure’s products in various formulations and further additional products that Cannassure have in their future pipeline.

The Distribution Agreement does not counteract DanCann Pharma's current agreements but creates an even broader product portfolio in terms of dosage, formulation, and delivery (delivery systems) of cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals for DanCann Pharma with the goal of becoming the leading supplier of medical cannabis in Scandinavia.

Under the terms of the Distribution Agreement, DanCann Pharma will employ its sales, regulatory, and distribution department, to distribute Cannassure’s product portfolio in the Territory. The specific products, as well as the branding will be determined mutually by both parties. The Distribution Agreement covers both pharmaceuticals for the Rx- and OTC-market.

DanCann Pharma will submit its first product approval application to the Danish Medicines Agency ("DMA") for the Distribution Agreement in the beginning of 2021 to have the products approved for the Danish Medical Cannabis Pilot Programme. The products are expected to produce significant and strong revenues for DanCann Pharma when successfully commercialized.

Comments by the CEO’s

The CEO of DanCann Pharma, Jeppe Krog Rasmussen, said, "We are very pleased to establish this long-term commercial partnership with Cannassure.
