Abacus Medicine Group upgrades full-year outlook for 2023.

Based on strong performance in the first part of the year and growing demand in core markets the Abacus Medicine Group is upgrading the full-year outlook for 2023.

We now expect full-year revenue to come in above the initial guidance and we raise the guidance range with approximately 5% to EUR 1,140-1,190 million versus the initial guidance of EUR 1,090-1,140 million. This corresponds to 11-16% organic revenue growth in 2023.

The EBITDA margin for the Abacus Medicine Group is now expected to come in at 3.2-3.6% for the full year versus the initial expectation of 2.2-2.6%.

CEO Flemming Wagner says: “We are raising our financial target on the back of strong commercial execution in all parts of the businesses and faster than expected internal efficiency improvements. We also see growing demand in a number of our core markets as healthcare payers seek savings from imported medicine.”
