Variations in foreign exchange rates had a positive impact of 10% on H1 2015 sales.
The Group recorded total sales of 13.8 million euros in the 1st half of 2015, up 16% on the previous year and a new record high. The increase was driven in part by a particularly dynamic 2nd quarter (+23%) reflecting the first positive effects of the aggressive international strategy instigated in 2014 with the deployment of a new export sales team.
“MEDICREA is continuing to expand its distribution network in certain geographical regions, notably in Eastern Europe, Gulf states and Southeast Asia. We have also recently established a presence in Germany, Europe’s largest spine surgery market, thanks to the opening of MEDICREA GmbH, our new distribution subsidiary, on July 1st,” commented Denys SOURNAC, Chairman and CEO of MEDICREA.
In the United States, sales recorded during the 2nd quarter of 2015 by the MEDICREA USA Corp. integrated subsidiary reached a new high, with sales of 2.5 million dollars generated in June 2015 alone.
Next announcement: results for the 1st half of 2015 are expected to be released on September 9th 2015, after market
