You may recall the announcement of the intended splitting of the South African Commercial Pharma business as part of their FY 2020 interim results, released on 8 March 2019. The strategic decision to split the business is aimed at achieving heightened product and customer focus across a broad range of their pharmaceutical brands.

As a consequence of this decision, Ethicare began trading on 1 July 2019 as a division of Pharmacare Limited. Ethicare‚Äôs portfolio comprises more than 240 brands valued at approximately R2.4 billion across both the private and public sectors. This portfolio covers various therapeutic categories including, but not limited to anticoagulants, anti-infectives, anti-inflammatories, antiretrovirals, cardiovascular, central nervous system, respiratory, and thrombotics. Ethicare will fall under the Pharmacare Limited pharmaceutical license. Aspen-Bromocriptine is one of the brands that was transferred to Ethicare.
