Aspen Pharmacare in the parapharmacy sector

Aspen Pharmacare in Medical Devices

Aspen Pharmacare is a South African pharmaceutical company with more than 160 years of experience in the market. They are world leaders in branded medicines and offer an extensive range of products to treat a wide range of acute and chronic diseases, including anaesthesia, thrombosis and oncology. 

The company in the last half of 2020 increased revenues by 9% to $38.6 billion. Revenues have grown as Aspen has entered into an agreement to sell the assets related to Mylan. Aspen's business will thus be heavily tilted towards other territories, giving the business greater exposure to the private sector and be better positioned to benefit from the expanding middle classes in Emerging Markets.
