Hemcheck Sweden AB has extended the evaluation agreement with Hemakim Tibbi Ürünler San.Ve Tic. A.S (”Hemakim”) to the end of May 2021. The evaluation agreement, that is now extended a second time, was formed to evaluate the collaboration and market opportunity, however the current pandemic has created challenges to get access to local hospitals delaying the evaluation. The new extension is expected to give enough time to complete the evaluation. After the extended evaluation period, the agreement can be extended into a distribution agreement with the same terms as earlier communicated.
-Both parties are in full agreement to continue and complete the evaluation that has been started but is delayed by the current pandemic. We continue to remain very positive and see potential for a long-term collaboration with Hemakim, says Joen Averstad, CEO of Hemcheck.
-We remain very positive about the potential success of the products in the Turkish market and hope to finalize the evaluation in this new extension of the evaluation agreement, says Aziz Eroglu, CEO of Hemakim.
