Message of the CEO

ceo

Dear shareholders, dear friends, 

It's been a year of review - on our 85th anniversary, we looked back to enjoy our successes, to thank the people with whome we've achieved them and celebrate with everyone we want to share our future with. Thank you for sharing! 

We are proud to have been among the pioneers with two major initiatives - we have distributed shares to all our employees according to their length of service and contribution to the company's successes and distributed the first interim dividend. We have received support from our shareholders for both initiatives, which has always been an important indication for us confirming that we are doing the right thing. 

Sopharma Group has gone through a difficult path of integration of the newly acquired companies Lekovit in Serbia and the pharmacies chain PharmaStore in Bulgaria, as well as of the merged company Unipharm. 

After the exceptionally strong 2017, we kept the growth rates of consolidated sales revenue, but we slowed down on net profit. In achieving synergy with newly acquired and merged companies, we expect optimization of the operating and net results over the next two years and ratios closer to those of 2017.
We hope for your support and trust!

Ognian Donev, PhD
Chairman of the Board of Directors and Executive Director of Sopharma AD
