PharmaSGP: Another revenue record – Q1 2022 revenues up 67% year-on-year


Gräfelfing, 17 May 2022 – In the first quarter of 2022, German OTC pharmaceutical company PharmaSGP Holding SE continued its dynamic growth path of the previous quarters and achieved another revenue record of € 20.6 million on the basis of preliminary, unaudited results. This corresponds to growth of 67% (previous year: € 12.4 million). According to plan, PharmaSGP intensified its marketing activities in the first quarter, especially in order to leverage the full potential of the portfolio acquired from the GlaxoSmithKline Group. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) amounted to € 5.0 million for the first three months of 2022, representing a year-on-year growth of 135%. The adjusted EBITDA margin also rose year-on-year to 24.3%, as expected (previous year: 17.2%).

CEO Natalie Weigand comments: “Our first-quarter revenue growth impressively demonstrates the potential we can leverage via our platform, both with existing brands and with newly acquired brands. As soon as we had acquired GSK's portfolio in the fall of 2021, we implemented our D2C marketing strategy in order to tap unexploited sales opportunities. In the meantime, the integration of the portfolio has been successfully completed and we have launched new products under the Baldriparan® and Kamol® brand families in our core markets. We regard this development as full confirmation of our focus on selective M&A activities and we will continue to pursue this path with rigor in 2022.”

“After a very strong performance during 2021, we see PharmaSGP fully on track after the first quarter for a further record year in 2022 and the achievement of our guidance,” added CFO Michael Rudolf. “So we anticipate nothing less than a renewed acceleration along our profitable growth track in 2022 – a view also shared by analysts covering our company.”

For the 2022 financial year, revenues are expected to grow by at least 19.5% to between € 78 million and € 82 million. The adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to increase year-on-year to reach a level between 30% and 33%. This corresponds to adjusted EBITDA in a range between € 23.4 and 27.1 million.

PharmaSGP will publish its full report for the first quarter of 2022 on 31 May 2022.
