About the list
The Alantra Pharma Fast 50 ranks the UK’s fastest-growing, privately-owned pharmaceutical businesses according to their revenue growth over the past two years (the businesses must have reported revenues of more than £1 million in the first year of assessment to be included). It includes analysis of businesses grouped into four distinct sub-sectors – technology; analytics, insights and communication; Pharma outsourcing; and develop, wholesale and supply.
The list includes private companies backed by private equity funders. Entities that are part of wider corporate groups qualify for inclusion provided their parent company’s activities are not pharma-related.
