PharmaSGP successfully secures financing of up to € 160 million
Gräfelfing, 21 July 2022 – Following strong organic growth and the successful acquisition and integration of the four OTC brands Baldriparan®, Formigran®, Spalt® and Kamol® formerly owned by the GlaxoSmithKline Group (GSK) in the second half of 2021, PharmaSGP Holding SE achieved record sales valued at € 65.3 million in the past financial year. Investors have shared in this success in the form of a dividend amounting to 50.5 % of Group earnings for the period. Once again in the first quarter of 2022, the company continued its dynamic corporate growth seen in previous periods, increasing its sales by 67% relative to the preceding year. With regard to the full year 2022, the German pharmaceutical company is targeting sales of between € 78 million and € 82 million with an adjusted EBITDA margin of 30 to 33%, measured against turnover.
Meanwhile the next milestone has been successfully accomplished on schedule in mid-2022 with the arrangement of a five-year syndicated financing package involving four partner banks. The new syndicated loan will on the one hand redeem the company’s existing debt in the amount of € 85 million that were used to finance the GSK acquisition and replace these with a long-term structure. While on the other hand, with immediate effect PharmaSGP now also has additional potential financing of up to € 75 million available to strengthen its unique European marketing platform with further acquisitions.
CFO Michael Rudolf commented: “The smooth integration of the GSK portfolio and the highly dynamic development in our business in the past quarters offer impressive proof that through targeted acquisitions, we are able to create significant value added for our investors. This is due to the fact that PharmaSGP possesses a scalable, pan-European platform with established processes and structures that enables us to integrate new brands with great success. Besides strong organic growth, we shall continue to favour the expansions of both sales and earnings through selective M&A activities. The new financing structure gives us long-term financial and planning security as well as the flexibility we need for our continued investments.”
