PharmaSGP posts record revenues (+39%) and record earnings (+54%) in 9M 2022 – raises full-year forecast

 

Gräfelfing, 16 November 2022 – German OTC pharmaceutical company PharmaSGP Holding SE has once again in the third quarter continued to experience the dynamic development seen in previous periods. Provisional unaudited figures show the company achieved revenues of € 63.9 million in the first nine months of 2022. This equates to growth of 39% (previous year: € 46.2 million). After previously reporting the highest quarterly revenues to date in its history in Q2 2022, the company has now once again raised the bar by a further half million euro with revenues of € 22.0 million in the third quarter. The adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) for the first nine months of 2022 amounts to € 20.4 million, representing a significant increase of 54% over the year before. The adjusted EBITDA margin accordingly rose to 31.9% relative to last year (previous year: 28.7%).

CEO Natalie Weigand commented: “Thanks to our platform strategy, even in a market environment that has proven highly challenging for many of our competitors, we have succeeded in recording highly profitable growth. This is impressively demonstrated by the continued improvement in the EBITDA margin which reached just under 38% in the third quarter. The results we have achieved in the first nine months prove that with this strategy, we can create substantial added value for our investors.”

CFO Michael Rudolf added: “We aim in future to maintain the highly positive development of the first nine months. We are also raising our full-year forecast accordingly, and we are well on the way to achieving new record revenues in 2022. At the same time, we have already put in place the necessary structural and financial conditions that will enable us to strengthen our unique European platform with further acquisitions and achieve further momentum for growth.”

In view of the very strong performance in the first nine months of 2022 and the sustained positive outlook for the fourth quarter, the management board raises the revenue forecast by 5% and now expects consolidated revenues for financial year 2022 to fall within a bandwidth between € 82 million and € 86 million with an adjusted EBITDA margin of 30 to 33 %. That equates to an adjusted EBITDA of between € 24.6 million and € 28.4 million. These expectations remain subject to the presumptions that the geopolitical situation in Eastern Europe in the course of 2022 will not lead to any material negative effects on the markets targeted by the PharmaSGP Group, and that the Covid-19 pandemic will not have any additional adverse impact on the economy as a whole or on the OTC market.

PharmaSGP will publish its full nine-months report on 30 November 2022.
