Hoofddorp, the Netherlands, 2 August 2021. IGEA Pharma N.V.

The expected revenue stream from the joint venture of CHF63 million along with the additional EUR 4.5 million revenues from other segments will allow IGEA Pharma to be cash positive already by the end of 2022.
After the all-equity offer to BSNR being declared unconditional as to acceptances, the Board has approved the new financial guidelines of the Company for the period 2021-2023 including the combined business of BSNR to be finalized by August 2021. The industrial CO2 supercritical extraction of CBD and other valuable components from their vegetable matrices for health prevention, pharma, food&beverage and other selected industries is expected to start by May 2022 and to reach full capacity by end of the year.

We have worked intensely in the last months on the joint venture strategy to develop a sustainable three years business plan and we trust that our team capabilities combined with our operational technology will allow our Company to reach the expected results”
