The Company’s revenue for the full year 2009 increased by 68.1% and achieved to RUR 24,095 million compared to RUR 14,335 million reported in the same period of 2008. Pharmaceutical products and medical equipment sales contributed  97.1% and 2.9% of the total sales respectively.

Pharmaceutical products

Sales of pharmaceutical products increased by RUR 10,147 million or by 77% from RUR 13,260 million reported in full year 2008 to RUR 23,407 million in the same period of 2009.

Company decided to segregate 3rd parties products separately in the reporting due to significant increase of its portion the total pharmaceutical sales of the Company. The contribution from the 3rd parties sales in 2009 achieved to 26.6% from the total pharmaceutical sales.

The Company organic sales of the pharmaceutical products in 2009 grew by RUR 5,437 million or by 46% and amounted to RUR 17,250 million.

The organic sales of OTC products and prescription (Rx) products contributed 86.4% and 13.6% of the total own pharmaceutical products sales respectively.

The Company’s revenue from prescription (Rx) products increased by RUR 976 million or by 71.7% and amounted to RUR 2,338 million primarily contributed by the market-leading brands such as Phosphogliv®, Combilipen®, Rastan®, Picamilon®, Biosulin®.

Medical equipment and disposables

Sales of medical equipment and disposables declined in 2009 by RUR 386.9 million or by 36% to RUR 688.7 million from RUR 1.075.7 million in 2008.  Such decline was caused by cuts in budget financing of state medical institutions for procurement of sterilizing machines due to recession.

The Company does not view the declined sales as critical because in the beginning of 2009 the management approved an efficiency program at this business segment, including cost optimization in order to maintain the financial result at break-even level.

Gross profit

In 2009, the Company’s gross profit increased by RUR 2,969.1 million or by 33.9% and amounted to RUR 11,727.5 million. In relation to sales total gross profit margin decreased from 61.1% in 2008 to 48.7% in 2009. The decrease is primarily caused by two factors: (i) the higher share of third parties products in the sales structure (from 10.1% in 2008 to 25.6% in 2009) and their lower margin as co mpared to the Company’s own products; (ii) the price increase for the materials and components. 

Operating expenses

In relation to sales the operating expenses decreased from 21.8% in 2008 to 13.2% in 2009. In 2009, the Company’s operating expenses slightly increased by RUR 51.3 million or by 1.6% and amounted to RUR 3,174.4 million. This indicator suggests high efficiency of operating expense management in the context of recession.

Selling and distribution costs (S&D)

In relation to sales selling and distribution costs decreased from 17.2% in 2008 to 10.2% in 2009. Organic S&D (excluding third parties products costs) in relation to sales decreased from 18.3% in 2008 to 13.0% in 2009. Total S&D decreased by RUR 3.7 million or by 0.15% from RUR 2,466.8 million in 2008 to RUR 2,463.1 million in 2009. There were no significant fluctuations in the structure of S&D during 2009 in comparison with the same period of 2008

General and administrative expenses (G&A)

In relation to sales general and administrative expenses decreased from 4.6% in 2008 to 3.0% in 2009. Organic G&A (excluding third parties products expenses) in relation to sales decreased from 4.8% in 2008 to 3.5% in 2009. Total G&A increased by RUR 55.0 million or by 8.4% from RUR 656.2 million in 2008 to RUR 711.2 million in 2009.

Other income (expenses)

In 2009, other income amounted RUR 105.3 million compared to other expenses amounted to RUR 715.2 million in 2008. This change is primarily contributed by (i) the RUR 448 million reversal of the provision recorded in 2008 against Genesis, distributor (in 2008, RUR 476 million provision was recorded against trade receivables from Genesis and were recognized in S&D) and (ii) the reduction in exchange loss by RUR 299 million due to stabilization of the Ruble to US$ exchange rate.  

EBITDA

In 2009, EBITDA amounted to RUR 9,636 million or 40% of total sales. EBITDA grew by 59% in 2009 in comparison to 2008. This fact indicates the effective level of company management.

Financial expenses and financial income

Financial expense decreased by RUR 109.2 million or by 42.8% from RUR 255.2 million in 2008 to RUR 146.0 million in 2009. This decrease results primarily from decrease in the balance of the Citibank loan in accordance with its repayment schedule.

Financial income growth in 2009 by RUR 110.3 million and amounted to RUR 132.9 million. This increase was due to the increase in interest income from cash deposits placed in banks and also due to 2009 gain from change in fair value of interest rate swap.

Profit for the year and non-controlling interest

The Company’s net profit for the year grew by RUR 3,349.3 million or by 95.6% from RUR 3,503.1 million in 2008 to RUR 6,852.4 million in 2009. In relation to total sales these figures were 24.4% and 28.4% for the respective years. In 2009, profit for the year attributable to the equity holders of the Parent of the Company was RUR 6,836.4 million. It should be noted, in relation to the Company’s sales of own produced products the net profit excluding the share of third parties products sales and their lower margin as compared to the Company’s own produced products accounted for 33.9% in 2009 in comparison to 27% in 2008. Profit for the year in the amount of RUR 16.0 million attributable to non-controlling interests primarily represented the amount attributable to the minority shareholders of Pharmstandard-Tomskhimfarm OJSC (holders who own 9% voting shares).

Earnings per share attributable to equity holders of the parent increased from 92.72 Rubles in 2008 to 180.89 Rubles in 2009.
