As one of the fastest growing markets in the world, we believe China’s pharmaceutical market will become the world's second-largest market in the next 5-10 years. Currently, the top 10 United States pharmaceutical companies occupied 77.8% market share in the United States market, while the China’s top 100 pharmaceutical companies only occupied 40% of the market share, and the top 10 companies accounted for less than 16% of the market share in China’s pharmaceutical market. We believe there’s enormous potential of room for growth in the market share of the leading pharmaceutical companies in China.

According to IMS Health Incorporated, Fosun Pharma was one of the top five domestic pharmaceutical companies in the PRC by revenue from the pharmaceutical manufacturing segment in 2011. Since listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange 14 years ago, the Group’s net profit has increased for 21 times, and its CAGR has also reached 26.72%.

Moreover, the Group is a pioneer in the premium, specialty and general healthcare services market among leading healthcare enterprises in China. Fosun Pharma holds a 32.1% equity interest in Sinopharm and is its second largest beneficial shareholder. Sinopharm has been the largest pharmaceutical distributor in China currently, and has a distribution network that covers more than half of the hospitals in China.
