Procaps Chief Executive Officer, Ruben Minski, commented:
“The third quarter was highlighted by our ongoing pace of innovative new products launches and product rollouts to new regions, as well as increased demand and market share for existing products. Despite macroeconomic headwinds and the depreciation of some local currencies, we continued to make significant progress on our strategy of building an integrated healthcare organization that will capture the benefits of our organic and inorganic growth.
“The cadence of new product launches and product rollouts to new regions combined to deliver 11% revenue growth on a constant currency basis during the quarter compared to 3Q21, supported by product development and new launches. With our strong focus on continuous innovation and internationalization, we continue to expand our portfolio within selected therapy areas and geographies. We have launched over 40 products in Colombia during the first nine months of 2022 and continuing with our geo expansion, we have launched approximately 100 products in the rest of the region, in the same period.
“We are delivering double-digit growth on a constant currency basis, and those results support our belief that we are making the necessary investment in our business and that the key drivers and competitive advantages are in place to execute our long-term strategy, despite currency headwinds.
“Looking ahead, we continue to expect to close on our Grupo Somar acquisition by the end of the year which will represent a significant step forward for our regional consolidation strategy, expanding our reach in Mexico. Our West Palm Beach facility pipeline of RX product development has been growing as expected, and we have a positive perspective for the next twelve months.
“In summary, while we are experiencing headwinds in the second half of this year, we believe we are well positioned to build significant momentum in 2023 as we drive growth, expand our portfolio and continue to focus on our roll-up strategy – all with the goal of building sustainable value for our shareholders over the long-term. I look forward to driving new momentum towards the realization of Procaps’s significant potential,” said Minski.
Procaps Chief Financial Officer, Patricio Vargas, commented:
“We ended the third quarter of 2022 with revenue increase of 11% over the same period of the previous year on a constant currency basis, and 15% in the first nine months, driven by multiple therapeutic areas across the company. We believe our ongoing discipline in the execution of our growth strategy, combined with the soundness of our core business operations, will position us for continued growth as the macroeconomic environment normalizes.
Currency devaluation during the last few months in some of our markets negatively impacted our 3Q22 revenues by $8 million compared to the third quarter of 2021 and by $16 million in the first nine months of the year compared to the same period in the prior year.
“Our gross margin remains robust at 61% both for the 3Q22 as well as for the 9M22, positively impacted by the portfolio mix during the third quarter.
To address the specific headwinds, we have been facing in these past months, we have been proactive in seeking out new ways to strengthen our multi-prong growth strategy that we expect will continue to deliver growth in our core markets with strong cash generation to the bottom line.
“Our strategy going forward will continue to prioritize high value uses for our capital, with an emphasis on reinvesting in our business by funding our internal R&D and innovation initiatives. With our substantial efforts to establish the necessary building blocks for growth, including our recent acquisition announcement, I’m confident that we are well positioned to achieve our near and long-term goals.
“Looking to 4Q22 and 2023, we expect to see continuing challenges and uncertainties, such as a possible recession in the United States and Europe, supply chain disruptions, and the continued depreciation of the currencies in the markets where we operate.
Despite these possibilities, we believe the diversified nature of our businesses, our efforts to meet these challenges, and ongoing expansion at every level of the Company, position us to combat potential challenges ahead and to continue our growth. The mid-term outlook for growth is positively driven by our product pipeline which is paramount to sustain our growth,” concluded Vargas.
