  • As of September 30, 2022, the company had approximately $5.9 million in cash compared to $37.6 million as of December 31, 2021.

“The third quarter of 2022 was another exciting quarter for Flora as we continued to lay the foundation of our business for the long-term,” stated Luis Merchan, chairman a CEO of Flora Growth. “During the quarter, we exported products to several new markets, including distribution of our Colombian grown high-CBD dried cannabis flower to Switzerland and the Czech Republic, as well as CBD isolate to the United States. Our global distribution network, coupled with our high-quality Colombian flower and derivatives, leave Flora well positioned to capitalize on the evolving global cannabis landscape.”

“Subsequent to the quarter, we signed a definitive agreement to acquire Franchise Global Health, a pharmaceutical and medical cannabis distributor with principal operations in Germany. This transformative deal would connect our Colombian commercial infrastructure and product portfolio to the German and EU cannabis markets, allowing Flora to significantly increase its international footprint.
