Cannevert has effectively been acting as the research arm of Veritas, as it currently has an exclusive license agreement to market all proprietary products developed by them. Additionally, all monetary advances made thus far have been used to expand CTL’s R&D efforts. With the latest payment, CTL will provide Veritas with a report on its current research program. We anticipate to have it within the next 10 days, at which point the principal results will be announced.

Dr. Lui Franciosi, Veritas’ CEO, stated “Cannevert team is composed of a veteran scientific team whom have previously developed successful pharmaceutical drugs and have created over a billion dollars in shareholder value along the way. I believe that our latest payment to Cannevert has solidified our commitment to each other and secures our continued collaboration. I would also like to extend my thanks to those who participated in the last financing, in particular Marapharm Ventures Inc., as it has enabled Veritas to bring this this transaction to the cusp of completion.”
