Management commentary, subsequent events and 2022 Highlights:

Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and Director, comments, “2021 was a transformational year for the Corporation, using a unique patient-oriented strategy has allowed us to continue demonstrating quarterly growth, with a strong commitment to improving the quality of patients’ lives. Khiron’s focus includes creating a meaningful brand that resonates with patients and doctors, selling highly profitable products, creating unique real-world data demonstrating the positive effects of cannabis for medical usage, and finally, diversifying our geographic revenue streams.”

Mr. Torres added, “The success we have experienced in Europe so far is due to Khiron’s ability to leverage our novel understanding of medical cannabis in Latin America, driven by our health services strategy and validated by the extraordinary evidence we build every day from the data generated in our clinics. Khiron is currently one of the top-selling brands of medical cannabis in the UK, and we have grown our market share rapidly in Germany. We recently opened our first hybrid Zerenia™ clinic in the UK, and we have received excellent adoption from both patients and doctors.”

Mr. Torres continues, “In Colombia, growth was partly due to our efforts to ensure insurance coverage for patients by the country’s principal insurance companies. To date, in Colombia, our Zerenia™ Clinics have served more than 20,000 individual patients with medical cannabis. In Peru, we obtained key final product registrations (“Alixen”), and we will continue to grow as we introduce new THC-based formulations to the Peruvian market. During the second half of the year, we sold our first Khiron-branded product in Brazil, a market of more than 230 million people. We are currently completing construction of our first clinic in Rio de Janeiro, and introducing THC-based medications, which will position us as one of the top companies in medical cannabis in this country. As we focus on our B2C medical cannabis strategy, Khiron has also decided to discontinue sales of our KuidaTM CBD-based cosmetics product line. Although we are very proud of the brand we created, it is clear that our biggest growth opportunities are within the medical cannabis sector, where revenue is increasing quickly. In addition, the Company no longer requires our cannabis cultivation license in Uruguay as we are currently exporting our products directly from Colombia. The Uruguay asset was purchased in 2019 for a total consideration of approximately 8.5 million shares.”

“These significant efforts from our team at Khiron provide confidence that 2022 will continue to be a very positive year for our entire corporation, as we support the well-being of our patients across the globe, and fuel Khiron’s continued international expansion.” comments Alvaro Torres, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Corporation.
