“Our portfolio of specialty pharma and consumer health products continue to grow with particularly strong performance for the obesity medicine Mysimba, which grew by 77% in the third quarter. We expect the high demand for Mysimba to continue going forward, further fueled by the conditional reimbursement in Finland and roll-out of our successful patient support program, helping obesity patients across the Nordics to succeed in their treatment,” says Kathrine Gamborg Andreassen, Chief Executive Officer of Navamedic ASA, and continues.
“We are also pleased to see the strong performance of our portfolio of antibiotics products, displaying solid traction on tenders compared to plan with new tenders won in several countries.”
Revenues in the third quarter of 2021 were NOK 63.6 million (NOK 56.8 million in the third quarter of 2020). The gross margin was 38.9% (31%), while the EBITDA was NOK 3.7 million (3.8).

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-term ambition of building a NOK 500 million company through organic growth with strong gross margins and underlying profitability.
