“In Israel, we have become among the largest distributors of medical cannabis and are well positioned to capture market growth today and in the future with the potential for recreational legalization,” he says. “We continue to capture meaningful market share in the premium segment in Canada driven by our staunch focus on cultivation excellence and increasing brand recognition of Wagners and Highland Grow.”
“Importantly, our execution with our recreational and medical operations in Canada and Israel and our global distribution expertise provides us with the blueprint to effectively capitalize on the substantial German market opportunity as it liberalizes its cannabis laws.”
In the fourth quarter, IM exported nearly 400 kilograms of indoor-grown dried cannabis from Canada to Israel, where it has an exclusive commercial agreement with Focus Medical Herbs Ltd.
The company’s Wagners brand started selling in Israel during the period, as well as in Germany.
The firm also signed a deal to acquire Oranim, a leading medical cannabis pharmacy in Jerusalem. IM says the acquisition positions it to be one of the largest sellers of medical pot in the country. The deal is expected to close by the halfway point of this year.
