PARMA, Italy, April 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Chiesi, the research-oriented international biopharmaceutical group headquartered in Parma (Italy), recorded a turnover of €2,749 billion in 2022, an increase of 13.6% from 2021. Gross Operating Profit (EBITDA) grew by 7%. It has a solid positive net financial position of €1,390 million, €342 million more than previous year.
Chiesi's largest market is Europe, but it is also growing in the US, China, and Brazil. The biggest share of turnover (70%) comes from treatments for respiratory disease, followed by products for rare and ultra-rare diseases, which registered record revenues of €332 million in 2022, growing by over 18% from 2021.
Giuseppe Accogli, the Chiesi Group's new CEO, commented: "This excellent performance is concrete evidence of the Group's work in creating shared value for people, the community, and the environment. It has been possible thanks to the commitment of all our people globally. A commitment that I share, together with the Chiesi family, and that will drive us into the next stages of international growth."
Increased partnerships in Research and Innovation
Research growth is mainly driven by partnerships and collaborations (Allinaire Therapeutics, Aptar Digital health, Kaia Health) and acquisitions (Amryt). In 2022, Chiesi also started building its Parma Biotech Center of Excellence, the new hub for the development of biological products, made possible by a €85 million investment.

This milestone represents the starting point of a new, three-year improvement plan, aiming for a recertification in 2025.
In 2023, Chiesi Group aims to grow further, and expects to reach and exceed its budget targets.
