"2020 was characterised by our employees' outstanding commitment to tackling the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conditions were difficult, yet we managed to achieve our objectives. The high level of expertise on the part of our teams in every segment and our in-house production activities played a vital role in continually maintaining our ability to deliver, as did the establishment of manufacturing facilities for BioNTech's Comirnaty(R) COVID-19 vaccine at two locations. The successful integration of Allergopharma, the introduction of new, internally developed products and successes in international business have shown that it is possible to implement our growth strategy even under difficult conditions", said Dr Hans-Georg Feldmeier, Chairman of the Board of Management of Dermapharm Holding SE.

Based on the good start to the 2021 financial year, the Board of Management has confirmed its outlook for the rest of the year. Thanks not only to the expansion of vaccine production but also to organic growth, Dermapharm believes that it is well equipped to achieve the ambitious targets set for the current financial year.
