Latest From Nichi-Iko Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
Nichi-Iko’s first-half financial results made for unhappy reading again as the company’s bottom line was battered by longstanding quality problems, leading the firm to announce huge projected losses for its current financial year ending in March 2022.
Japanese player Towa Pharmaceutical joined Sawai in capitalizing on Nichi-Iko’s misery by taking market share from its rival, as it ran factories at full capacity and plotted for further expansion.
Nichi-Iko has been forced to cut dramatically its core operating profit guidance for its 2022 financial year, as it continues to deal with the fallout of its previously deficient Namerikawa manufacturing facility in the Toyama prefecture.
The generics industry struggled with the prior-year comparison as it saw an expected decline in revenues in the first quarter of 2021, driven by the global impact of the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, the performance of most companies fell short of the numbers reported in Q1 2020. However, a few managed to contradict the trend by reporting growth, either based on the launch of COVID-related drugs or performance in specific geographies.
