Thomas Eldered, CEO:
“Sales, even excluding acquisitions, was the highest ever for a third quarter. Total sales increased 45 per cent. Excluding acquisitions the growth was 5.9 per cent. An important contributor to growth was sales under the new contract in Kaysersberg with strong demand for blow-fill-seal technology. In general, demand continued to be strong in our Sterile Liquids segment and in the Indian market we saw significant underlying volume growth.
As expected for a third quarter, EBITDA-margin decreased sequentially but increased to 12.6 per cent compared to 11.0 per cent the same period last year. Still, EBITDA was negatively affected by several items, of which many were non-recurring. This was partially offset by a positive contribution from the cost and efficiency program in Swedish operations. In the further implementation of the program we are anticipating delays and we will review various options for continued improvement
Considering that operations during the third quarter are affected by holiday and maintenance shut-downs in most of our European network I’m pleased to report continued very strong operating cash flow at SEK 180 million (81).
We continue to make capacity expansion investments in the Sterile Liquids segment. During the quarter we initiated important expansion projects in blow-fill-seal capacity in France and lyophilisation capacity in Italy, in addition to the already on-going significant expansion in Germany. We expect these projects to generate material future growth. Our implementation of serialisation capability is progressing according to plan and we are well positioned to benefit from these new regulations.
Acquisitions completed earlier in the year performed well and in-line with our plans. I’m particularly pleased to note that there have been minimal supply disruptions to customers during these sometimes challenging transitions. Integration activities are ongoing in the new companies in India, Italy, Sweden and the USA. Many activities have been satisfactory completed and we expect all planned integration activities to be fully implemented during the first half of 2017. We expect approval during the fourth quarter from the Indian authorities of the previously announced acquisition of Kemwell’s Indian pharmaceutical business with closing beginning 2017.
We now have global reach and a highly attractive value proposition to our customers combined with a solid financial position. Going forward we will continue to implement our growth-driving strategies, including executing on further acquisition and business development opportunities. We are very well on track to reach our overall financial and growth targets”.
