Quercegen Agronegocios, an affiliate of Quercegen Pharmaceuticals, purchased the Natural Product Division of Merck SA, Brazil in 2009. This acquisition resulted in Quercegen Pharmaceuticals becoming a fully integrated company with Quercegen Agronegocios controlling the agriculture, harvesting, purification, packaging and supply of Quercetin and certain other plant-based ingredients worldwide. For several decades the Company's predecessors Merck Brazil and Merck KgAa engaged in pre-clinical and clinical development of flavonoids. Quercegen Pharmaceuticals and Merck Brazil joined forces in 2003 and together developed a unique new extraction and processing method, which ultimately resulted in the Company's QU995™ food grade Quercetin. Today Quercegen Pharmaceuticals together with its affiliates, partners and collaborators, researches, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary formulations using plant-based functional ingredients. Quercegen Pharmaceuticals is a vertically integrated, "farm to table" operation.
