Pharmaceutical Firm Ranks Eighth Among The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 100

Boston and London, July 21, 2010 – Pharmarama International, a leader in strategically sourcing comparator medicines for clinical trials worldwide, today announced that it has been ranked as Britain’s eighth fastest-growing private company for overseas sales in a 2010 survey published by the country’s leading business newspaper, The Sunday Times.

Companies were ranked on their compound annual growth rate (CAGR) based in international sales on the most recent two years of available data from 2006-2010.  Pharmarama’s international sales grew at a CAGR of 131 percent between 2007 and 2009, increasing to £10.4 million for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2009. International sales for the base period were almost £2.0 million.

“Our prestigious recognition in the inaugural International Track 100 reflects the success Pharmarama has achieved in building and growing its U.S. business,” said company Managing Director Rosemary Bensley. “Since launching Pharmarama in the US in 2007, we have established our U.S. office and warehouse in Boston, Massachusetts to serve the clinical supply needs of pharmaceutical companies across North America.  Our ranking among Britain’s top private companies in international sales is a significant accomplishment. It underscores the outstanding work of our employees on both sides of the Atlantic and reinforces the strong relationships we have with our customers.”
