Thomas Eldered, CEO:  
“With a sales increase of 42 percent we recorded all-time high sales for the quarter. For the first time we had sales in excess of SEK 1 billion, and this even without the SEK 231 million contribution from recent acquisitions. Sales growth during the quarter, excluding acquisitions was 16 percent in local currencies. Sales of the volatile tender product Thyrosafe and from the new contract in Kaysersberg, France as well as phasing of revenues from the first quarter contributed significantly to the sales increase.  A packaging-only contract, discontinued in Q3 2015, lower reference prices in Portugal and lower sales in the UK of certain high-margin own products had a negative impact.

EBITDA for the quarter increased 54 percent to SEK 240 million and EBITDA-margin increased sequentially to 19.4 percent, the highest quarterly margin ever for Recipharm. Excluding acquisitions, completed during the last twelve months, EBITDA still reached an all-time high for a quarter. In addition to the sales growth, a price adjustment related to the first quarter this year had a positive impact on EBITDA. Implementation of the cost and efficiency program in Swedish operations started to impact EBITDA positively somewhat ahead of plan.

We continued to take important steps to strengthen Recipharm and to support achievement of our long-term targets. Completed acquisitions during the quarter of Indian Nitin Lifesciences Ltd, Swedish Kemwell AB and US Cirrus Pharmaceuticals Inc together with Italian Mitim Srl, acquired in February, performed according to our expectations and integration activities progressed in-line with plan. Together with the acquisition of Kemwell’s pharmaceutical business in India, with expected authority approvals in Q4 this year, we have now strengthened our synergistic business model and will align development and manufacturing services globally. Our high-performing European operations, highly efficient Indian capabilities and US bridgehead, providing access to our network for small and midsize US customers, is creating a leading global setup providing valuable solutions to our customers. We continue to make expansion investments in the Sterile Liquids segment, in particular to meet the strong demand we see for our lyophilisation services and blow-fill-seal technology.

As expected we comply with our EBITDA-margin and Net debt to Equity targets. Going forward I expect our growth-driving strategies, including executing on further acquisition opportunities, to continue to deliver. The markets we operate in remain competitive but at the same time providing both growth and many opportunities. With our global reach and attractive value proposition to our customers I’m confident that we will reach our long term growth targets set to 2020. We were pleased with the support showed by our shareholders in the recently completed rights issue and we are very well placed to continue to explore the opportunities we see in the market.”
