“End market demand growth was strong for our Canadian pharmaceutical products in the first quarter of 2023 based on sales of our products by wholesalers to retailers during the priod, as reported by IQVIA,” commented Mr. René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent. “This end market demand growth was not reflected in the 1% growth rate in our net revenues from sales to wholesalers during the first quarter, following strong growth in such sales to wholesalers in the fourth quarter of 2022. We are accustomed to such trade fluctuations in our Canadian pharmaceutical business from quarter to quarter as inventory moves through the supply chain. Our international pharmaceutical revenues continued to be lumpy with no exports during the first quarter of 2023 versus a comparatively strong Q1 2022, resulting in an 8% decline in total Company revenues overall. However, with continued demand growth in our Canadian pharmaceutical business, we are currently on track to deliver revenue growth in 2023. We also made significant investments during the quarter in current and coming new product launches. We are pleased to have launched FeraMAX® Pd Maintenance 45 in March 2023 with incremental revenue during the first quarter. We look forward to additional revenue generation from this and other new product launches in the near term, including a new women’s health product, as we execute on one of our key strategic objectives of portfolio diversification.”
