2017 half-year results: 8% increase in reported operating profit 

Sales increased by 4% in Danish kroner.

9 August -  Sales within diabetes and obesity care increased by 11% to DKK 47.5 billion (10% in local currencies). Sales within biopharmaceuticals declined by 19% to DKK 9.6 billion (20% in local currencies), primarily reflecting an impact from the introduction of a generic version of the hormone replacement therapy Vagifem® product and from rebate adjustments for human growth hormone in Q1 2016, both in the USA, whereas sales within haemophilia was unchanged.

Lars Fruergaard Jørgensen, president and CEO: “We're well on track to deliver on our targets for 2017 based on sales growth driven by our new, innovative products within diabetes and obesity care and a continued focus on cost control. Although the formulary negotiations in the USA reflect the tough competitive environment, we remain confident that our long-term financial growth targets are achievable.”

Victoza® is the only GLP-1 that is proven to prevent CV events in people with type 2 diabetes and high CV risk

"Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death for people with type 2 diabetes and requires treatment strategies that can tackle both blood glucose and cardiovascular risk to help improve outcomes,” said Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president and chief science officer of Novo Nordisk.

New beginnings

With millions displaced by war, business has a key role in helping refugees integrate, contribute and flourish in society. Each individual you meet has their own personal backstory of despair and upheaval. Days on end spent on an over-crowded boat, bobbing on the Mediterranean. Families fragmented and dispersed. Careers and livelihoods abruptly curtailed.
