Q3 Essentials Sales: €81m (+12.2% at constant exchange rates)

Matthieu Frechin, Chairman and CEO of Vetoquinol, commented: "Our sales in Q3 2023 were marked by a dynamic activity and stronger negative currency impacts than in the first half. In a global animal health market still driven by prices, we are pursuing the launches and ramp-up of our new Essentials, the drivers of our long-term strategy."

The Vetoquinol Group posted sales of €136 million in Q3 2023, up +1.3% on a reported basis and +5.1% at constant exchange rates. Over the same period, Vetoquinol recorded a negative currency impact of -€5 million, linked to the Americas and Asia Pacific/Rest of World territories.

Sales of Essential products totaled €81 million, up +9% on a reported basis and +12.2% at constant exchange rates. This dynamic performance was driven by the development of the existing portfolio and the ongoing launches of Felpreva®, an antiparasitic solution for cats in Europe, and Simplera®, a drug indicated for the treatment of otitis in dogs, in the United States. Sales of Essentials products accounted for 60% of Vetoquinol’s sales in Q3 2023, compared with 56% for the same period in 2022.

At constant exchange rates, the strategic territories of the Americas and Europe grew by +13.7% and +4.3% respectively; the Asia-Pacific/Rest of the World territory was down by -10.5%, mainly related to the distributor business.

Sales of companion animals products (€96 million) rose by +7.3% at constant exchange rates, representing 70.6% of the Group’s total sales. Sales of farm animals products came to €40 million, stable at constant exchange rates.

At the end of September 2023, Vetoquinol sales totaled €392 million, down -3.2% on a reported basis and -1.4% at constant exchange rates. Foreign exchange had a negative impact of -€7 million (-1.8%). Essential products accounted for 59% of Group sales, up +3.3% at constant exchange rates.
