Olainfarm’s Sales Last Year Reach 93.7 Million, Profit Target Not Attained

on February 27, 2015

Consolidated profit and loss account of JSC Olainfarm for 2014 shows that the Group has set the new sales record as it sold its products worth 93.7 million euros.  This represents an increase by 20% compared to 2013, when sales of JSC Olainfarm were 78 million euros.

Net profit of the Group in 2014 was 12.66 million euros, which is an increase by 0.5% compared to 2013, when profit of JSC Olainfarm was 12.6 million euros.

“Although we have managed to set yet another sales record in history of Olainfarm, significant changes in almost all of our key markets, including difficulty to deliver our products to several regions of Ukraine, currency devaluations in Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, prevented us from attaining the profit guidance.  Instability in these important markets makes us put even more effort to star selling our final dosage and chemical products in other regions and pay a lot more attention at identification of potential acquisition targets, which have less dependency on CIS markets,” says Valerijs Maligins, Chairman of the Board of JSC Olainfarm.

During 2014 sales to all company’s main markets continued increasing except for Kazakhstan, UK and Uzbekistan, where sales shrunk by 32%, 32% and 11% respectively. The most rapid sales increase during 2014 was achieved in Poland, where sales grew by 434%, and in The Netherlands, where products of WHO’s anti-tuberculosis program are being shipped. Sales to The Netherlands grew by 192%.  Significant sales growth has also been achieved in Lithuania (by 60%) and Belarus (by 40%).  Major sales markets of  JSC Olainfarm during 2014 were Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus and The Netherlands.

During 2014 38 registration cases have been approved in several countries, including such untraditional countries for JSC Olainfarm as Peru, Mongolia, Bhutan, Romania and Kosovo.   Several products are still in the process of obtaining MAs, among other countries, in Turkey, registration processes have been launched in Bosnia and Herzegovina and other new markets.  Preclinical trials of R-fenotropil are being conducted and totally new forms and line extensions of existing products are being developed.  Among other things the company works at development of a new nootropic medication, new product of nitrofurantoin group and a new food supplement.

Annual meeting of shareholders of JSC Olainfarm held on April 29, 2014 approved operating plan of the Group.  According to it, sales of the Group in 2014 are planned to be 93 million euros, but the net profit will reach 15 million euros.  According to this unaudited report for 2014, during this period 100.7% of annual sales target and 84% of annual profit target is met.
