About Malta Enterprise and the COVID-19 EU Grant Scheme Malta Enterprise is the country’s economic development agency, tasked with attracting new foreign direct investment as well as facilitating the growth of existing operations. In June 2020, Malta Enterprise announced they would provide financial support for undertakings to carry out investment projects to increase or initiate production of COVID-19 relevant products or to diversify existing production to be able to produce COVID-19 relevant products. About CimetrA™ CimetrA™ is a nanoparticle micellar formul ation based on the pharmaceutical synergetic composition consisting of Curcumin and Boswellia. CimetrA™ has anti- inflammatory and immunomodulating effects and can be designed for multiple therapeutic applications utilising Graft Polymer IP Ltd's proprietary GraftBio™ Self-nano-emulsifying Drug Delivery System. Preclinical and Clinical results to date have demonstrated CimetrA™ 's mechanism of action as an anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agent which is effective in the prevention of severe inflammation by its control of increased Cytokine production which results from an infection of the different variants of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19); and which is the 2 - 2 forerunner of a Cytokine Storm, believed to be the main reason for mortality in severe COVID-19 patients. Roby Zomer, Co-founder and Managing Director of MGC Pharma, commented : “The completion of the construction of the CimetrA™ facility in Malta, the Company’s second EU based production facility, continues to strengthen our strategic position in pharmaceuticals development and manufacturing, and provides the Company with flexible production capacity, which includes production of our proprietary treatment for the symptoms of COVID-19.” Kurt Farrugia, CEO of Malta Enterprise, commented: “Malta Enterprise is proud to support MGC Pharmaceuticals Ltd to develop and produce CimetrA™ through the COVID-19 Investment Aid fund, which was set-up to assist companies develop products in the fight against the pandemic. This project is a great example of how both MGC and ME seized an opportunity during critical circumstances, and we are thrilled that CimetrA™, a potential solution to mitigate the effects of the Coronavirus, will carry the ‘made in Malta’ brand. It also shows an evolution of our Life Sciences and Pharma industry with the production of phytomedicines in Malta, creating another niche within the sector.” --Ends-- Authorised for release by the Board, for further information please contact: MGC Pharmaceuticals Ltd Roby Zomer CEO & Managing Director +61 8 6382 3390 info@mgcpharma.com.au MGC Pharmaceuticals Ltd David Lim Company Secretary +61 8 6382 3390 info@mgcpharma.com.au UK Broker – Turner Pope Andy Thacker +44 203 657 0050 info@turnerpope.com UK PR Advisors – Tavistock Charles Vivian /Tim Pearson +44 207 920 3150 mgcpharma@tavistock.co.uk About MGC Pharma MGC Pharmaceuticals Ltd (LSE: MXC, ASX: MXC) is a European based bio-pharma company developing and supplying affordable standardised phytomedicines to patients globally.
