Gubra raises financial outlook for 2024

Today, Gubra announces an upgrade to its full-year 2024 financial outlook. Organic revenue growth for the CRO business is now expected to be 15-20% (previously 10-15%) and adjusted EBIT-margin is expected to be 28-31% (previously 25-28%). For the Discovery & Partnership business, the 2024 outlook for total adjusted costs is increased by DKK 15 million to 160-175 million.

The upgrade to the CRO business follows high activity in the first quarter of 2024 and solid current trading and orderbook. The main growth driver is the Obesity area where Gubra is a leading provider of high-end preclinical Obesity services.

For the D&P business, the expectation to total adjusted costs in 2024 is increased by DKK 15 million to 160-175 million. The increase is explained by i) costs for the UCN2 asset within healthy weight loss as we have decided to progress this asset into preclinical tox, and ii) decision to frontload investment in the API for the Amylin asset (GUBamy) to shorten the program’s future development timeline.
