Thomas Eldered, CEO:  
“The fourth quarter marks the end of a transaction intensive year for Recipharm. With an increase in net sales of 54 percent we recorded all time high sales for a quarter.  Excluding acquisitions sales was still the highest ever for a fourth quarter with an increase of 16 percent, driven by the Sterile Liquids segment.

EBITDA was SEK 229 million, an increase of 108 percent. Excluding acquisitions the increase was 42 percent.  Our EBITDA-margin was 17.2 percent, highest fourth quarter ever, which contributed to the full year EBITDA-margin of 16 percent, in line with our overall objectives.

Our Sterile Liquids segment delivered a stable EBITDA-margin of 22.7 percent. We continued to see high capacity utilization with customer demand supporting on-going capacity expansion projects in lyophilisation and blow-fill-seal technologies. In addition to the 87 percent growth from 2016 acquisitions we recorded sales growth of 59 percent from increased demand and new products, partly from sales under the new contract in Kaysersberg.

Our Solids and Others segment delivered a significantly improved EBITDA-margin of 15.2 percent driven by acquisitions, effects from the cost and improvement programme in Swedish operations and lower non-recurring costs. Market conditions continue to be competitive and sales excluding acquisitions decreased by 3 percent, partly driven by discontinuation of less profitable projects.

Our Development & Technology segment delivered a lower EBITDA-margin of 17.6 percent, negatively affected by acquisitions. Sales, excluding acquisitions and currency translation effects decreased by 6 percent. Conditions in the Portuguese and UK market for our own product rights continue to be challenging, but the development in the market is stabilizing.

Our cash flow from operating activities continued to be strong at SEK 83 million in the fourth quarter. Net debt was stable and amounted to SEK 1 894 million in the fourth quarter and the net debt/equity ratio remained at 0.4, well in line with our target of less than 0.8.

During the quarter, we have worked with integration into the Recipharm group of recent acquisitions in Sweden, Italy, the US and India and I am pleased to say that this is progressing well and according to plan. We recently completed our second Indian acquisition and I am excited about the further strategic opportunities this brings. We have announced further strategic investments in development capabilities in Sweden and Italy, strengthened our commercial organisation with new appointments in Europe and the US and continued to build on our position as a front-runner in serialization capability.

During 2017 we will explore the many opportunities we see from our global organisation, start supply from the first of our major capacity expansion investments and begin to supply serialized products to the US market. We will continue to build powerful, long lasting partnerships with strategically important customers, in addition to executing on accretive acquisition opportunities. We are well on track to reach our long-term financial targets and overall objectives.”
