Dermapharm Holding SE: excellent start into financial year 2022
- Consolidated revenue up 9.1% to EUR 231.6 million
- Adjusted consolidated EBITDA rises 17.9% to EUR 75.1 million
- Newly-acquired C³ Group contributes to revenue and earnings for the first time
- Sustained high demand for products to strengthen the immune system
- Board of Management confirms outlook for 2022 overall: consolidated revenue expected to increase by 10–13%, EBITDA by 3–7%
"Our performance in the first quarter of 2022 was in line with our planning even though the overall conditions have deteriorated considerably since the beginning of financial year 2022. The war in Ukraine and the lockdowns in China have led to disrupted supply chains and price hikes. Nevertheless, thanks to our comprehensive value chain, broadly diversified product portfolio and high efficiency in purchasing, production and distribution, we succeeded in generating further growth and continually maintaining our ability to deliver. The key drivers of growth in the first quarter were our existing product portfolio and our cooperation with BioNTech SE", said Dr Hans-Georg Feldmeier, Chairman of the Board of Management of Dermapharm Holding SE.
Performance of segments on target
Revenue in the "Branded pharmaceuticals and other healthcare products" segment amounted to EUR 145.7 million in the first three months of 2022, representing a 11.8% increase (prior-year period: EUR 130.3 million). Adjusted EBITDA also improved during the same period, climbing by 18.0% to EUR 69.4 million (prior-year period: EUR 58.8 million), and the adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 47.6% (prior-year period: 45.1%). This positive trend was due in particular to the rise in demand for products in the pain and inflammation treatment therapeutic area, greater demand for allergy drugs and vaccine production in cooperation with BioNTech SE.
In the "Herbal extracts" segment, revenue rose by 28.0% to EUR 25.6 million in the first quarter of 2022 (prior-year period: EUR 20.0 million). Adjusted EBITDA rose by 10.9% to EUR 6.1 million (prior-year period: EUR 5.5 million), and the adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 23.8% (prior-year period: 27.5%). The segment's figures included the C³ Group's revenue and earnings contributions for the first time in the reporting period.
Revenue in the "Parallel import business" segment declined slightly as expected by 2.4% to EUR 60.4 million in the reporting period (prior-year period: EUR 61.9 million). By contrast, EBITDA increased from EUR 1.0 million in the first quarter of 2021 to EUR 1.2 million. The EBITDA margin rose from 1.6% in the prior-year period to 2.0%. The decline in revenue was due to a generally declining overall market and lower selling prices. In particular, the increased participation in health insurance discount agreements following the entry into force of the German Act for More Safety in the Supply of Pharmaceuticals (Gesetz für mehr Sicherheit in der Arzneimittelversorgung, "GSAV") had an adverse impact on revenue.
Outlook for 2022 overall confirmed in full
In light of the stable business development in the first quarter of 2022, Dermapharm is pleased to confirm its outlook for 2022. The Board of Management continues to expect growth in consolidated revenue by 10% to 13% (2021: EUR 942.9 million) and in consolidated EBITDA by 3% to 7% (EUR 351.1 million).

(excluding segment reconciliation/Group holding company)
* Q1 2022 EBITDA was adjusted for non-recurring expenses amounting to EUR 3.7 million.
