Ascendis Health

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a sustainable and innovative business with a portfolio of synergistic health and care brands from across the value chain.

The Ascendis Health growth strategy is acquisitive, synergistic, international and organic. We focus on revenue growth, new product development and launches, major acquisitions of complementary businesses in South Africa and abroad, and on developing and managing our owned brands. Through innovation and diversity our vision is to remain the market leader in health and care brands for people, plants and animals.

This vision is achieved through our commitment to the following three values:

  1. Strong organic growth – Ascendis Health partners with the right people, has great management teams and believes in strategic, operational and leadership excellence.
  2. Creating relevant platforms – Ascendis Health has developed platforms in the plant, animal and human health sectors, and acquired complementary businesses for synergistic growth.
  3. Improving the value chain – Ascendis Health focuses on vertical integration across these platforms and industry sectors.

We uphold our vision and integrity across our diverse portfolio and this commitment has seen impressive results. The Integrated Reports offer a detailed view into how we have exceeded board expectations in delivering against our objectives, year-on-year, and how a singular focus is paying off in the complex health and care market.

“New product development and innovation remain key to the Ascendis Health competitive advantage in the health and care markets, both locally and internationally. We are totally committed to continuing to develop Ascendis Health into a truly integrated global health and care company.” – CEO, Dr Karsten Wellner.
