"Since I assumed the CEO role in the third quarter of 2021, we have made significant progress streamlining the company's operating structure, investing in our sales organization and refocusing the team on THC-dominant opportunities. These efforts are paying off, with a deeper, higher quality sales pipeline, and a recent agreement in Germany to access a distribution network that reaches every pharmacy in Germany, a market expected to be worth €7.7 billion by 2028," Bill Petron, CEO of PharmaCielo stated.

"I expect 2022 to be a pivotal year for the company as we build what I fully expect will become one of the most important B2B companies in the global cannabis supply chain, backed by a strengthened balance sheet and clear path to revenue growth."

The company had cash equivalents of CA$5.3 million as at December 31, 2021 compared to $8.9 million as of December 31, 2020.

Non-Brokered Private Placement of Debenture Units

The units were issued at a price of $1,000 per unit for aggregate proceeds of CA$1.5 million. This follows the company's announcement on January 3, 2022 that it had completed an initial tranche of units, also for aggregate proceeds of CA$5 million. The company intends to use the proceeds from the offering for operations, working capital and the build-out of its international psychoactive dry flower sales program.
