Alliance Pharma plc (AIM: APH), the international healthcare group, will hold its Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) at 10:00am this morning. At the meeting, the Group’s Chair, David Cook, will make the following statement:
“Firstly, on behalf of the Alliance Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alliance’s employees around the world for their continued commitment and support.
“The overall business is in good health and consumer demand for our brands remains strong. The integration of ScarAway and the rights to Kelo-cote in the US (acquired in March 2022) is progressing well.
“In line with the comments made at the FY 2021 results in March 2022, we continue to expect FY 2022 performance to be weighted to H2 due to our anticipated sales trajectory for Amberen and Nizoral, together with temporary disruption to our supply chain through COVID-related lockdowns in China, which is now beginning to ease.”David Cook, Groups Chairman of Alliance will comment:
“We remain confident in our ability to deliver full year financial performance in line with market expectations. Further commentary on our first half trading performance will be provided in our trading update in July 2022.”
