    Düsseldorf, 29 de julio de 2015: en el segundo trimestre de 2015, los ingresos de GEA superaron en un 3% el elevado nivel alcanzado el año anterior. El sector de servicios experimentó un crecimiento sostenido. La entrada de pedidos disminuyó ligeramente debido al escaso número de grandes pedidos. No obstante, la actividad básica percibió tasas de crecimiento estable en ambas áreas de negocio de GEA. El beneficio operativo de GEA volvió a mejorar. Esto revela que el aumento de la eficiencia derivado de la aplicación del programa “Fit for 2020” ha comenzado a causar impacto. Tanto el EBITDA operativo como el margen de EBITDA operativo alcanzaron sus máximos históricos en el segundo trimestre. En el informe trimestral se presentaron gastos no recurrentes de 134 millones de euros aproximadamente. Esta cifra incluye gastos de reestructuración de unos 115 millones de euros para el programa “Fit for 2020”.

    PharmaAsia Industry Outlook: Growth in Generics and New Molecular Entities (NMEs)

    There are a number of interesting market dynamics in play within the pharmaceutical industry; in the traditional markets, such as Europe, the US and Japan, we’ve recently witnessed the largest number of submitted patents for new molecular entities (NMEs) for more than 10 years. And, although some of those NCEs were targeted at low volume/high value solid dosage forms, the majority were new biological entities (NBEs) for liquid forms. Drug producers need a certain type of process solution to manufacture final dosage forms, so I see the traditional market focusing on high value, small volume products that require agile, efficient and flexible production processes. An additional area of growth is branded over-the-counter drugs (OTCs).
