NORTH READING, MA–(Marketwired – Oct 28, 2015) – TraceLink Inc., the world’s largest track and trace network for connecting the life sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, today announced financial results for the third quarter 2015. Growth highlights for the quarter include:

  • A year-to-date revenue increase of 92 percent over the same period in 2014;
  • An 81 percent revenue increase year-over-year;
  • A two-year revenue CAGR of 113 percent, up from 70 percent in Q3 2014;

  • A 133 percent increase in employee growth year-over-year, with 19 percent of 2015 new hires in local international markets.

“We continue to experience widespread adoption of our solutions. As pharmaceutical companies, CMOs, wholesale distributors, and dispensers evaluate their options for compliance, most recognize that the Life Sciences Cloud offers the widest range of integrated, out-of-the-box drug traceability solutions that require the least amount of cost, implementation time, and risk,” said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. “While other companies provide point solutions for compliance, TraceLink is the only company transforming the global pharmaceutical supply chain into an end-to-end digital network. With nearly 200,000 pharmaceutical suppliers exchanging compliance data on the Life Sciences Cloud, we’re seeing a dramatic increase in the number of companies seeking our solutions once they learn that 90 percent of their suppliers, or greater, are already on the TraceLink network.”

Additional growth highlights for the third quarter include:

  • Protecting more than 1 billion drug products moving through the global supply chain — a 48 percent increase over Q2 2015;
  • Processing 23.3 million Transaction Histories for US DSCSA lot-level compliance in Q3 — a 135 percent increase over the 9.9 million Transaction Histories processed in Q2 2015;
  • Processing more than 156 million serialization events in Q3 for pharmaceutical products in China, South Korea, Turkey, India, and the US — bringing the cumulative total of serialized events processed by TraceLink at the close of Q3 to 2.3 billion; and,
