Investment company FastForward has invested €3m (£2.5bn) in German medical cannabis company, Eurox Group.

The investment will provide FastForward with ‘direct exposure’ to a brand focused on Europe’s largest medical cannabis market, the company said.

Germany’s medical cannabis market is projected to be worth more than €840 million by 2024.

The investment is the result of many months of work and is aligned with FastForward’s investment strategy that includes both liquid and non-liquid assets.

Chief executive officer, Ed McDermott, said:

“This is a meaningful private equity deal and it represents an important addition to FastForward’s portfolio of investments in Europe’s growing cannabis-sector.”

Eurox has the capacity to provide a complete ‘made in Germany’ offering of medical cannabis extracts and isolates, Alfredo Pascual, VP of Investment Analysis of FastForward, said. 

“As a company built from the ground up in Europe and led by a European management team, we see immense potential in Eurox to become the next vertically integrated medical cannabis leader on the continent.

“We were attracted to Eurox’s investment opportunity by a number of factors including the company’s prudent cash burn rate to date and realistic plans”

Eurox has an exclusive partnership agreement with EU GMP-certified German pharmaceutical company, Dr. Reckeweg.

The medical cannabis company also holds a significant minority ownership of London-based Integro Medical Clinics.

Bernhard Babel, co-Managing Director of Eurox, commented: 

“Our goal has always been to achieve consistently high product quality, stable supply and operational excellence to serve our wide customer base.

“The Eurox team and I are very much looking forward to this new partnership with FFWD which is the final in a series of fundraises giving us a solid capital base upon which to build our business.”
