Management Commentary

Procaps Chief Executive Officer, Ruben Minski, commented:

“In the midst of a challenging 2Q23, we remained steadfast in executing our strategic plan. We are accelerating our efforts to streamline operations, enhance cash generation, and position for sustainable growth.

“There was a combination of factors related to the macroeconomic environment that challenged the entire industry in our region. Rising costs from inflation and high interest rates, along with working capital requirements, and several pharma companies delaying orders of our products to reduce their inventory and their working capital needs.

“It is important to acknowledge that we believe the impacts we have faced, while significant, are temporary. The challenges in the quarter were anticipated, and we are taking proactive steps to address them.

“While we couldn´t fully pass on increased costs to our customers, we are adapting our strategies to navigate this dynamic landscape and protect our profitability.

“Customer behavior resulted in inventory fluctuations and exchange rate shifts affected our performance. However, we are seeing some favorable exchange rate shifts benefitting our customers and bolstering our recovery.

“Our partners have navigated similar challenges, resulting in lower inventory levels. We anticipate a few more months of pressure before experiencing relief towards the end of the year.

“We have several product launches expected for the second half of this year and we also have orders from our CDMO partners scheduled that were postponed.

“We're encouraged by the ramp up of new products launched in the last 36 months and growth in demand for our Rx products (15% growth in 1H23), Clinical Specialties (6% growth in 1H23), and our B2B business which is receiving new orders indicating a potentially stronger 4Q23 after a potentially flat 3Q23.

“While the road ahead may seem challenging, our approach is rooted in a long-term perspective. We acknowledge the need for a more strategic direction and are committed to refining our plans to ensure a stronger, more resilient organization that thrives beyond short-term hurdles,” concluded Minski.
