“In the first six months of 2018, STADA developed in line with our expectations. In addition to double-digit increase in our key earnings figures – including significant net income growth – we were able to considerably improve the margin of our Generics segment. We also pushed ahead with our strategic realignment, implementing steps such as acquiring the EMEA rights for Nizoral dandruff treatment shampoo and taking over distribution responsibility for our strongest-selling product APO-Go in Germany, with Scandinavia to follow shortly. As such, we remain on track to reach our targets for 2018,” STADA CEO Dr. Claudio Albrecht strikes a positive balance.
