Pharmstandard’s selling and distribution costs were RUR1,626 million (US$64 million) in 2007, an increase of 28% (19% on pro forma).

Overview of Pharmstandard

 

Pharmstandard is the leading domestic pharmaceutical company in Russia and the third largest pharmaceutical company operating in Russia overall, by sales value. Pharmstandard is a leader of the biggest commercial segment of the Russian pharmaceutical segment. The Company develops, manufactures, markets and sells generic and, to a lesser extent, original pharmaceutical products in various formulations, primarily in Russia.  Pharmstandard’s product portfolio includes market-leading brands (6 brands among top-20 best selling domestic brands in Russia), such as Arbidol® (antiviral for systemic use), Pentalgin® (analgesics), Terpincod® (cough and cold), Complivit® (vitamins), Codelac® (cough and cold) and Flucostat® (antifungal). In 2007, Arbidol® was the largest selling pharmaceutical product, by sales, at the Russian pharmaceutical market, according to data by Pharmexpert. Pharmstandard has limited exposure to the Russian Government’s Federal Reimbursement Programme, through which 4% of its pharmaceutical product sales were made in 2007.

 

In August 2006, the Company acquired Masterlek, a Russian pharmaceutical company focused on the antiviral for systemic use and antifungal therapeutic segments. This acquisition was in line with Pharmstandard’s corporate strategy to expand its market position in Russia through acquisitions that complement the Company’s product portfolio. Masterlek contributed approx imately 30 products to the Company’s product portfolio, including the market-leading brands Arbidol® and Flucostat®.

Pharmstandard operates five manufacturing facilities in Russia and, with a production capacity of 1,104 million packs as of December 31, 2007, has one of the largest production capacities among domestic pharmaceutical companies in Russia. The Company has invested approximately RUR2.7 billion in capital investments in its manufacturing facilities since the start of 2004. Pharmstandard’s flexible production capacity distinguishes it from its competitors by allowing it to quickly and efficiently adjust production based on input from its distributors and sales force.

In addition to its pharmaceutical business, the Company also develops, manufactures, markets and sells medical equipment, such as sterilizing and distilling machines, and disposable medical products, such as syringes.
