Weimar, 30 June 2020 - IBU-tec advanced materials AG ("IBU-tec", ISIN: DE000A0XYHT5) reports another successful sales performance in the pharmaceutical sector. For the first time, IBU-tec is supplying an internationally active pharmaceutical group from Asia with a chemical catalyst, to produce a generic drug to lower blood pressure. The first delivery in the double-digit ton range has already been completed and invoiced. Just recently, a further global pharmaceutical group extended an agreement for the purchase of this catalyst from IBU-tec unexpectedly. The organotin compound is a product of the IBU-tec subsidiary BNT Chemicals.

IBU-tec sees further sales and turnover potential for the distribution of the organotin catalyst in the coming years. In recent decades, the number of people suffering from high blood pressure has risen continuously. There are now more than 1.1 billion people suffering from hypertension worldwide, an increasing proportion of whom live in developing and emerging countries.

Ulrich Weitz, CEO of IBU-tec: "Our recent achievements in the pharmaceutical industry fill us with optimism. They also underpin the broad diversification of IBU-tec. After all, battery materials and air purification solutions, for example, are also areas in which we are strong. With our own products for the pharmaceutical industry, we are now tapping into further potential".
