RYAH Medtech, Inc. (“RYAH” or the “Company”), announced today that it has entered into a multi-country strategic distribution arrangement with Northern Green Canada Inc. (“NGC”), the first private Canadian licensed producer of cannabis to achieve EU GMP certification. The agreement’s aim is to facilitate the commercial distribution, through NGC, of the RYAH Dry-Herb Inhaler and data analytics platform together with NGC’s plant-based medicine and GMP certifications throughout German speaking countries in Europe.

The agreement entails two phases of collaboration:


Regulatory Phase: Under NGC’s EU GMP directive from its office in Munich, Germany, both RYAH and NGC will co-ordinate efforts to secure EU Medical Device Registration (MDR) approval for the RYAH dose measuring inhaler. During this phase, both companies will lay the groundwork for implementation of the combined device, patient analytics and plant based – medicine solution into the pharmacy network, with initial focus in Germany.

Commercial Phase: Subsequent to MDR approval, both parties intend to formalize a long-term commercial distribution strategy covering Germany and additional German-speaking countries in Europe. NGC will be commissioned as exclusive distributor of RYAH dose-controlled inhalers, and cartridges to be independently filled by NGC or licensed partners with NGC’s grown or sourced plant-based medicine. RYAH has already developed a German language mobile application for its connected devices, which will be combined with RYAH’s secure patient dosing data analytics software and APIs for the targeted countries under this agreement.

“This agreement with RYAH brings to our pipeline a high-value partnership with a medicinal focus and the potential to help a great number of patients in Germany and beyond,” said Lisa McCormack, CEO of NGC. “We are delighted to partner with RYAH, a pioneering specialty delivery device company with a strong team and we believe this alliance underscores our strong focus on and commitment to healthcare innovation.”

Following the strategic arrangement, and during the “Regulatory Phase”, RYAH and NGC will finalize both a Quality Agreement and a Commercial Distribution Agreement (the “Definitive Agreements”) which is estimated to begin in May, 2020. The Definitive Agreements will include the terms and conditions, of Quality Control operating procedures, economics and performance benchmarks for the execution of the “Commercial Phase”.

“This is an important agreement for RYAH as it advances our ambitions to deliver precise, connected dose control devices and data analytics, to a wide range of clinics, pharmacies, doctors and patients across one of the fasted growing regions for medical use of plant-based medicine. We continue to be impressed with NGC’s ability to bring a high-quality production and distribution standards for plant-based medicine and we are looking forward to our coordinated approach to servicing the medical community in the targeted European countries,” said Gregory Wagner, CEO of RYAH Medtech, Inc.
