However, profit before tax of the first 05 months in 2021 witnessed an impressive increase of 26.1% in comparison with the figure of the same period of the earlier year. Cost of goods sold for the period from 01 Jan to 31 May 2021 rose by 6.3% year over year while net revenue experienced a rise of 11.2%. Thus, gross margin has been improved compared to 2020. Other income in the first 05 months of 2021 also surged year over year.
Besides, administrative expenses slightly increased by 1.1% but selling expenses of the first 05 months grew by 18.6% due to the fact that sales support and marketing activities have been resumed after a prolonged period of following the pandemic prevention measures. However, it is predicted that in the coming months, selling expenses would slowly increase as the 4th wave of the pandemic is out breaking in Northern provinces and Ho Chi Minh city, which induces the disruption of sales and marketing activities because the Company must comply with the social distancing orders and avoid gathering in groups.

The pandemic is moving unpredictably since May 2021 in Northern provinces and Ho Chi Minh city; therefore, Imexpharm has reviewed sales support and marketing activities to ensure that the Company fully obeys the pandemic prevention measures issued by the Ministry of Health and provincial Governments.
Ensuring safety for all Imexpharm employees during the pandemic is the top priority. In addition, the Company has issued many guidelines to instruct on preventive actions and disseminate them to all employees. Imexpharm also evaluated the impact of the pandemic on human resources to propose possible scenarios in order to maintain business and production continuity.
Continuing to control expenditures, account receivables and inventories is also one of the most important objectives of Imexpharm in Jun 2021 as well as the next months.
