(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Cho Hyun-young = Huons[243070]announced on the 14th that its consolidated operating profit last year was 55 billion won, a 35% increase compared to the year before.

Sales increased 12% over the same period to 552 billion won. Both sales and operating profit are the highest ever.

In the fourth quarter of last year, sales increased 12% to 145.2 billion won compared to the previous year, but operating profit decreased 32% to 11 billion won.

Huons explained that the prescription drug division drove its highest ever performance.

Sales of prescription drugs for various disease groups, including anesthetics, circulatory system, and digestive system, increased evenly, and sales of the overall prescription drug business last year recorded 261.2 billion won, a 22% increase from the year before.

In particular, five injectable products, including lidocaine local anesthetic approved in the U.S., contributed to performance by raising exports of 26.2 billion won in the North American market.

The beauty and wellness business achieved sales of KRW 188.8 billion, up 8% from the previous year, based on the stable growth of non-reimbursement medicines such as vitamin injections and health functional food businesses.

The consignment manufacturing (CMO) business also continued its growth, recording sales of 65 billion won.

However, it was explained that operating profit in the fourth quarter decreased due to an increase in one-time sales and administrative expenses such as bonuses and initial operation costs of the second Jecheon plant.

Huons CEO Song Soo-young said, “This year, we will achieve stable growth and operating profit based on external growth by securing production lines, diversification of export products to the global market, and sound management.”

On this day, Huons announced its sales forecast for this year at KRW 635.3 billion on the Korea Exchange.
