Crescita owns a portfolio of non-prescription skincare products and has one FDA-approved prescription product, Pliaglis, that is licensed globally to Galderma SA and Taro Pharmaceuticals for the US market.

The revenue increase was driven by Crescita’s licencee, Taro Pharmaceuticals Inc, reaching a contractual sales milestone as Pliaglis sales increased in the US, which netted the company $1.3 million (US$1 million).

"I am pleased with the positive momentum our team has generated in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, as demonstrated by our revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth, as well as our strong cash position," said Serge Verreault, president and CEO of Crescita. "We will remain focused on the fundamentals of our business to drive sustainable profitable growth in 2019."

Crescita is gearing up to commercialize Pliaglis throughout Italy, Portugal, France and Spain through a new agreement with Cantabria Labs, a leading prescription dermatology company in Europe.
