Tetra Bio-Pharma (TSXV:TBP) announced a non-binding proposal for the acquisition of all issued and outstanding shares in the capital of Panag Pharma.
As quoted in the press release:
Panag is a Canadian-based life sciences company focused on the development of novel cannabinoid-based formulations for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Panag has developed innovative and patented formulations for the treatment of ocular diseases and other pain conditions such as general neuropathic pain. Their significant formulation expertise in the wellness market will allow Tetra to expand its commercial operations.
Dr. Guy Chamberland, CEO and CSO of Tetra stated, “We are very pleased to announce this news to our shareholders. We have been working with Panag for over a year and as a combined entity we will have a robust product pipeline of cannabinoid derived drugs for development as prescription or OTC drugs. Tetra is not just acquiring assets and intellectual property, we are joining a group of world-renowned cannabinoid experts that will help take Tetra to the next level as a pharmaceutical company.”
Panag will remain a separate subsidiary owned 100 [percent] by Tetra and will provide Tetra with additional discovery and early phase drug development capacity. With this robust product pipeline, Tetra intends to continue to implement its out-licensing program to generate additional revenues via upfront payments, milestone payments, and royalties and actively pursue the clinical development of lead products.
