“Our Canadian pharmaceutical business continued to grow in the fourth quarter, with double-digit sales growth overall in the full year 2020 amidst a global pandemic and a challenging business environment,” commented Mr. René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent. “During 2020, we successfully launched FeraMAX® Pd, a new product platform using a patented iron delivery system, as well as three new products in our Canadian pharmaceutical business, namely, Tibella®, FeraMAX® Pd Therapeutic 150, and Combogesic®. We made significant marketing investments of approximately $1.7 million in these new products in 2020. Approximately $0.7 million of these investments were made in the fourth quarter during which two new products were launched. The sales growth in our Canadian pharmaceutical business was offset by investment in new products, as well as challenges in our international pharmaceutical business, resulting in an overall decline in our 2020 net profit margin to 17%. While our international pharmaceutical business was negatively impacted by COVID-19 during 2020, we were encouraged to have shipped a large international FeraMAX® order early in 2021. I look forward to reporting on our progress in 2021, as we continue to invest in new products and long-term growth initiatives, including Tibella®, FeraMAX® Pd, Combogesic®, and a new women’s health product which we in-licensed in Q4 2020.”
