CS MEDICA presents CEO Letter of June 2022
CS MEDICA A/S (”CS MEDICA” or the ”Company”) hereby provides the monthly CEO letter for June to keep their shareholders and other interested parties updated about expected objectives and activities for the forthcoming month. The June CEO letter covers important events of June, including status in development, and touches upon current events within the company’s industry and field of business.
During the past month we successfully participated in the Vitafoods events where the company’s fully owned subsidiary, CanNordic was nominated as one of the most innovative companies with unique, ground-breaking ingredients, formulations and products. CanNordic took part in the Innovation Tour 2022 and the live stage Vitafoods Europe 2022 new product presentations. The trade fair exceeded all expectations and the trade fair stand got unsurpassed attention accomplished by an overwhelming amount of leads. During the 2,5 days at the fair trade, we collected more than 200 leads, which are now in process. Within our business this is quite noticeable, where normally 64 leads would have been considered as a successful number of leads following this kind of fair trade.
During the coming months, our clinical trials within Arthritis are to be finalized in phase III, which hopefully will help up close several of our ongoing negotiations with key distributors. Subsequently, we expect to complete clinical trials in the field of Psoriasis. The result from the clinical trials will be published on minimum two Science platforms with the help of The University of Naples Federico II[i], expectedly within this year.
The Cannabis industry is at a torrid pace with mergers and acquisitions continuing to break ground in 2022. In the last months, another two acquisitions can be added to the list. Cresco Labs became the market leader in cannabis with their $2 billion acquisition of Columbia Care, with a footprint of over 130 stores in eighteen markets. Australia’s Incannex Healthcare paid $93.3M to acquire Dutch cannabis company APIRx Pharmaceutical BV, one of the first ASX-listed companies to make forays into cannabinoid and psychedelic therapeutic drugs. This deal positions Incannex to target the $120 billion global addressable market of cannabinoid and psychedelic therapeutics. Inherently, these two transactions reflect hugely distinct business models, which will likely dictate the evolving investor approach in the years to come within both horizontal and vertical consolidation and investments.
These developments and progressions together with our intensive focus on sales give me great confidence in CS MEDICA’s ability to execute according to our strategy and meet our revenue goals.

We expect to be able to start up this test within the next coming months, to secure our launch of post-market-clinical trials together with local disease organizations, such as Psoriasis and Arthritis organization in Denmark. Studies like this are incredibly important, not only for the data they bring but also in terms of relationship building with disease organizations, medical practitioners, business administrators and future leaders. They are a key part of our commercialization efforts.
Hope you enjoyed our CEO letter. We are looking forward to keeping you updated with our company’s industry and field of business in future CEO letters.
