“In the first quarter of 2021, we continued to deliver growth in our underlying portfolio. The rapid growth of specialty pharma product Mysimba and the consumer health products Alflorex and ThermaCare stand out as valued proofpoints of Navamedic’s position in prioritized areas such as gastro, obesity and other lifestyle related issues, says Kathrine Gamborg Andreassen, Chief Executive Officer of Navamedic ASA, and continues.
“The accelerated growth in these areas comes as a result of targeted investments in our platform, patient support programs, local category expertise and customer and stakeholder infrastructure. These investments will be key in 2021 as we continue to accelerate growth through launch of new products and push for growth in our existing portfolio.”
Revenues in the first quarter of 2021 were NOK 58.6 million (55.6 million in the first quarter of 2020). The gross margin was 39.6% (28.3%), while the EBITDA was NOK 2.6 million (0.7). Navamedic will launch products in at least one country in each launch window going forward. The company targets 20% annual growth from 2021 and reiterates its mid- to long-term ambition of building a NOK 500 million company with strong gross margins and underlying profitability.
