Grünenthal with revenue growth driven by innovative pain brands
Grünenthal Group achieved total revenues of €973 mn in 2012. Adjusted revenues (excluding revenues from divested businesses) rose by 13 percent.
The increase was driven by growth of the global pain brands Palexia®/Tapentadol (up €36 mn) and Versatis®/Lidocaine patch (up €28 mn) as well as increased revenues from licences due to a successful product launch with Grünenthal´s INTAC® tamper resistant formulation technology. Revenues from the tapentadol license in the North American market increased as well.
