Cellmid chief executive officer Maria Halasz said: “Our recent investment in expanding our senior leadership team and building our marketing capabilities is now translating through to increased sales and new distribution partnerships.
“We enter the 2020 financial year with positive operational momentum in sales growth and e-commerce expansion across Australia, the US and Japan.”
Cellmid is now preparing to launch its new e-commerce platform for its premium product range, évolis Professional, in Japan later this month.
The company has seen a ramp-up in its online performance since the launch of the new évolis website in Australia and the US in March 2019 and is confident that this success can be replicated in Japan in 2020.
Cellmid recently appointed Bart Wuurman as chief executive officer of its wholly-owned subsidiary Lyramid with the aim of unlocking shareholder value by separating the consumer health and biotech business.
His mandate is to accelerate partnering discussions and explore opportunities to fully exploit the midkine assets.
Wuurman has successfully executed biotech deals including Antisoma in the UK via a successful IPO and Lanthio Pharma in the Netherland via a trade sale.
