Zuellig Pharma is responsible for market launch and distribution of Granulox in the territories of Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. In addition to the complete processing and financing of admission in the individual territories, Zuellig Pharma has committed itself to the purchase of significant quantities of Granulox within the next five years.

In both cases, minimum purchase commitments were also been agreed upon.
"With these agreements, we have succeeded in pushing forward into new dimensions. Inside the newly acquired sales areas, more than half a billion people live. We have now reached an important milestone on our path to global expansion. In addition to the quantitative dimension, the qualitative contract value of the agreements was also increased. In the past five years, Granulox has proven in field that it keeps what it promises on paper. When granting new territories, we now benefit from the appreciation Granulox has now gained. For instance, Zuellig Pharma for Southeast Asia and the MDP Group for Russia, two veritable global players with a corresponding sales force and financial strength, could be obtained for Granulox. Both partners have committed themselves to realize the necessary regulatory approvals and subsequent market launch of Granulox in the respective territories. Guaranteed purchase commitments were agreed with both partners. The annual minimum purchase quantities fixed within the next five-year period up to 2021 are based on the time-staggered progress of the product launches expected by Zuellig Pharma and MDP Group. Starting with the approval of Granulox, followed by the starts of the marketing campaigns and Granulox's positive sales development, specific verifiable milestones were established together with our partners for the individual territories. The cumulative purchase commitments for quantities over the next five years are well in the middle six-digit range. On the one hand, this minimum order gives us further planning certainty and ensures that we achieve our ambitious goals. On the other hand, this fact underscores the strong confidence our partners have in the future success of the cooperation with SastoMed ", explains Michael Sander, CEO of Sastomed GmbH.
