Dermapharm Holding SE successfully maintains growth trend as planned
Grünwald, 16 November 2022 – Dermapharm Holding SE ("Dermapharm"), a rapidly growing manufacturer of branded pharmaceuticals, today publishes its results for the first nine months of 2022. The Group increased revenue by 9.6% to EUR 734.3 million in the reporting period (prior-year period: EUR 670.2 million). Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose by 5.1% to EUR 239.4 million (prior-year period: EUR 227.8 million). The adjusted consolidated EBITDA margin amounted to 32.6% (prior-year period: 34.0%). Unadjusted consolidated EBITDA amounted to EUR 231.9 million (prior-year period: EUR 232.0 million) and the unadjusted consolidated EBITDA margin amounted to 31.6% (prior-year period: 34.6%).
"Although the market remains challenging, we successfully generated revenue and earnings growth in all three segments. Despite the current changes in the general conditions, we are therefore on track to achieve our targets for the year. Once again, our highly diverse product portfolio and production facilities in Germany are the foundation of our success. We're systematically implementing our growth strategy by already preparing to integrate Arkopharma, the market leader for natural food supplements in the French pharmacy market, which will complement the product portfolio from the beginning of January 2023 and accelerate our internationalisation efforts, particularly in western and southern Europe," said Dr Hans-Georg Feldmeier, Chairman of the Board of Management of Dermapharm Holding SE.
All three segments record revenue and earnings growth
The "Branded pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products" segment increased revenue by 7.8% to EUR 475.5 million in the first nine months of 2022 (prior-year period: EUR 440.1 million). Adjusted EBITDA also increased during the same period, rising by 4.2% to EUR 223.9 million (prior-year period: EUR 214.9 million). Our adjusted EBITDA margin declined slightly by 1.6 percentage points to 47.2%. The growth in this segment was primarily driven by products such as Keltican®, Tromcardin®, Myditin®, Calcipotriderm®, Hübner Naturarzneimittel's line of silicea products and China-Oel®, and the vaccine production in cooperation with BioNTech SE.
The "Herbal extracts" segment generated revenue of EUR 74.2 million in the first nine months of 2022 (prior-year period: EUR 54.6 million). The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the revenue contributed by the acquired companies Cernelle and the C³ Group. The segment's adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 17.0 million in the reporting period (prior-year period: EUR 15.8 million). The adjusted EBITDA margin amounted to 22.9% (prior-year period: 28.9%). The adjusted EBITDA margins of the most recently acquired companies, which were still below the segment average, led to a temporary reduction in the segment's margin.
The "Parallel import business" segment increased revenue by 5.8% to EUR 185.5 million in the first nine months of financial year 2022 (prior-year period: EUR 175.4 million). The increase in revenue is due mainly to the rebound in the overall parallel import market. The Company's portfolio of OTC products also performed well. EBITDA increased by 81.8% to EUR 4.0 million (prior-year period: EUR 2.2 million). The EBITDA margin also rose from 1.3% in the prior-year period to 2.2%.
Outlook for the financial year confirmed
In light of the fact that the Company's performance in the first nine months of financial 2022 was in line with expectations, and given the positive outlook for the final quarter, the Board of Management is pleased to confirm the guidance for 2022 overall. The Board of Management continues to expect growth in consolidated revenue by 10% to 13% and in adjusted consolidated EBITDA by 3% to 7%.
