“Our established brands, led by FeraMAX®, showed strength and resilience through the challenges of COVID-19 resulting in 51% growth in Canadian pharmaceutical sales in Q2 2021 as compared to a 9% decline in the year ago period, which was impacted by short-term trade inventory rebalancing coming out of the first wave of COVID-19,” commented Mr. René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent. “Bolstered by growth in our legacy and international pharmaceutical businesses, total Company sales grew by 53% to $7.3 million in Q2 2021. While our launch brands, Tibella® and Combogesic®, contributed to growth during the quarter, COVID-19-related access restrictions to healthcare professionals and persistently low patient traffic through the offices of these healthcare professionals have delayed the expected rate of uptake of these two brands. Although we are encouraged by the lifting of some COVID-19-related restrictions across Canada, the future impact of COVID-19 on the launch trajectory of these two brands remains uncertain. While we continued with our planned launch investments in Tibella® and Combogesic® during the quarter, we delivered a 14% net profit margin and marked our 44th consecutive profitable quarter in Q2 2021. We are proud of this record of 11 consecutive years of profitable growth.”

BioSyent announces entering into two separate agreements to return the rights, and discontinue sale, of the Aguettant® System for Pre-filled Syringes and Cysview® (hexaminolevulinate hydrochloride) to their respective owners. Both agreements are effective December 31, 2021.

“The return of rights to the owners of these products will allow us to focus on assets that can contribute more significantly to our revenue and profit growth objectives and provide superior return on investment,” said René Goehrum.
