Tilray Inc., (NASDAQ:TLRY) In A Deal To Satisfy Medical Cannabis Demand In The UK

Published

on

Authorized patients in the UK are set to access medical cannabis after Tilray Inc., (NASDAQ:TLRY) imported the product in bulk. The medical cannabis oral solutions originate from Canada and it will enable Tilray to maintain a local supply of the products in the UK for quite some time. This importation marks another milestone after the company first imported medical cannabis oil late last year.

Tilray well-positioned to feed UK demand

The cannabis sector in the UK is still fledgling and there are few local companies with interests in the industry. Tilray is set to take the opportunity to place itself in the best position to exploit this gap as the market grows.

In particular, accessibility to medical cannabis in the UK is difficult and leaders are calling for a change. To be sure, the Health and Social Care Committee of the UK Parliament lamented what it termed as the government failing future patients for not dealing with the shortage of medical cannabis.

The UK government has been slow in licensing cannabis-related products and that has led to a massive shortage. While specialist doctors can prescribe medical cannabis, patients find it hard to access the products.

That is why Tilray is building up its capacity to avail as much cannabis-derived medicines as possible. After the importation of the latest consignment was confirmed, Sascha Mielcarek, Tilray Europe’s MD said, “We’re pleased to reaffirm our commitment to delivering medical cannabis to patients in the U.K.”

As at present, Tilray supplies six different medical cannabis products which are approved by the National Health Service.

An agreement with Zenabis Global

Tilray is also beefing its inventor of dried cannabis after inking a deal with Zenabis Global. In the agreement, Zenabis will supply $22.9 million worth of dried cannabis. The first shipment should be fulfilled by October.

While the agreement enables Tilray to consolidate its position in the market, Zenabis gets to earn a reprieve from dependence on outstanding debt. To be sure, Zenabis had an unsecured convertible debenture facility worth $60 million on which it relied for financing. As such, this an opportunity to reduce the debt burden and to restructure some debt obligations.
