"Ergomed made exceptional progress in delivering its strategy in 2020, despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic," said executive chairman Dr Miroslav Reljanović.

"The resilience and robustness of our global services business was demonstrated by our continued strong organic growth whilst completing key strategic acquisitions in the US in both our pharmacovigilance and clinical research service businesses.

"We have started 2021 in a strong position, focused on our vision to achieve global leadership in specialised pharmaceutical services addressing unmet medical needs and patient safety."
