Mr. Withrow commented: “When I study our core competencies and vision, along with the people working with the Company, I see a huge opportunity in the multiple markets that we operate in. The global life science market size was valued USD 49.82 billion in 2019 and expected to surpass USD 95.68 billion by 2027 with a CAGR of 8.5% from 2020 to 2027, according to Precedence Research. We have engaged accomplished scientists and have excellent technologies to develop innovative solutions within this industry, leaving many years of forward growth still on the table.” He continued: “When I think of the therapeutic innovations in our pipeline, there are excellent prospects for rapid growth, and that is why I am investing so heavily in AREV.”
AREV continues to produce multiple extracts and advanced compounds from targeted natural sources to be characterized by collaborative partners and our network of experts on the AREV Scientific Advisory Board and those working for the Company at the junction of science and public health. These relationships enable the Company to design and develop innovative products in a shorter time frame than current industry standards.
The company has issued 100,000 stock options to Directors, Officers and Consultants of the Company at a price of $0.185 for a period of 5 years from the issued date. These options will vest immediately.
