As a key market player, OrbusNeich has been maintaining revenue and profit growth during the Track Record Period. In particular, its adjusted net profit surged over 200% year-on year to approximately USD21.4 million in 2021 and a further 11.8% year-on-year to USD12.3 million in 1H2022 as compared to 1H2021.

The Group possesses strong in-house R&D capabilities with over twenty years of accumulated product development experience and continued investment in R&D activities. OrbusNeich owns more than 180 granted patents globally across key jurisdictions, including 31 and 56 granted patents in the U.S. and in the PRC respectively, as of 5 December 2022. Leveraging the Group’s world leading technologies and proprietary know-how, it had a robust pipeline consisting of around 40 products under development, as of 30 June 2022.
Based on its technology reserve and knowledge in the conventional endovascular intervention area, the Group strategically opts to further penetrate and expand its product portfolio into complex cardiovascular intervention, structural heart disease intervention and neuro-intervention fields with high unmet medical needs, apart from developing coronary and peripheral products.

For the six months ended 30 June 2022, the production facilities had an aggregate annualized production capacity of approximately 1,352,000 units of balloon products and approximately 56,400 units of stent products, thereby enabling it to supply large-scale and stable high-quality products to customers around the world.

In particular, its production facilities in the PRC have passed onsite inspections by the FDA with Zero Observations in 2020.

Further enhance the market penetration with the well-established brand recognition

In addition, according to the CIC Report, the CAGR for the global endovascular interventional instrument market is expected to be 12.9% from 2021 to 2030.
