Both the Canadian and International pharmaceutical businesses showed good growth in 2016 with Canadian pharmaceutical sales of $15,113,621 growing by 14% and International pharmaceutical sales of $1,549,538 growing by 36% over 2015."

Mr. Goehrum continued, "while our existing products showed continued organic growth in 2016, we were also able to launch new products to the Canadian market during the year such as CYSVIEW® with blue light cystoscopy and phenylephrine hydrochloride injection in the Aguettant System® pre-filled syringe. Despite the investment in these launch products, profitability in 2016 was consistent with the previous year with a net profit margin of 24%. We also expanded the breadth and depth of our product portfolio with new license agreements signed in 2016 for exclusive Canadian rights to a women's health product and two cardiovascular products. We look forward to reporting on BioSyent's progress as we continue to cultivate our existing products, expand our product portfolio and launch new and innovative pharmaceutical and healthcare products to the Canadian market."
