Veropharm 2008 net profit rises 33 pct
Russian drug maker Veropharm reported on Wednesday a 33 percent growth in 2008 net profit to $36.9 million helped by robust sales.
Sales at Veropharm rose 24 percent to $172.9 million, the same pace as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), which totalled $52.5 million.
As of the end of 2008, its debt stood at $24.5 million.
Veropharm, which is majority-owned by Pharmacy Chain 36.6 , has reportedly been put up for sale as the indebted drug retailer needs cash to pay debts.
