growth and expansion of Elanix as we enter the next phase in
commercialization of our topical bioactive creams outside of
Switzerland, particularly through our dedicated e-commerce platform.

brings much more than the logistics element to this agreement. We look
forward to exploring additional ways in which we can collaborate,”
stated Tomas Svoboda, CEO of Elanix Biotechnologies.
