- Registered 23 products in seven overseas markets

- Entered the European market with two ophthalmic products namely Latanoprost and a combination of Latanoprost and Timolol. These two glaucoma drugs are being exported to Germany and Austria. This is for the first time ophthalmic products have been exported to Europe from Bangladesh

- Obtained marketing authorization for a product in Australia

Nazmul Hassan MP, Managing Director of Beximco Pharmaceuticals, commented:

"We are satisfied with our performance in the first half of 2013, considering the unstable political situation prevailing in the country which has affected business and economic activities across all industries. Both our revenue and profit grew over the comparative prior year period. As a result of our continued efforts, we successfully entered the German and Austrian markets in February 2013 - which is a major milestone for the entire industry. This is the first time a Bangladeshi company has succeeded in exporting its own pharmaceutical formulations into Europe. At this halfway point in the year, we are pleased with our progress achieved to date and notwithstanding a further worsening of the overall political environment, we remain hopeful of achieving our year-end targets.”
