Einar Geir Hreinsson, Vice-President Strategic Projects at Actavis, says:
"We used this channel to reach potential customers and it turned out to be considerably more effective than we had expected. It is invaluable to be able to introduce a new project like Opening Pharma in this way, through a single portal with connections in all directions. This will be our first choice the next time we want to give a new project a good promotion."

Rich DiCicco, Chief Executive Officer of Harvest Moon Pharma, comments:
"Harvest Moon Pharma has listed its complex generics and biosimilars on SourceGenerics for three years. We have received enquiries from 206 companies - including Pfizer, Sanofi, Teva, Stada, Ranbaxy and Sandoz - from 58 countries, and we are very pleased with the results. We intend to keep listing on SourceGenerics indefinitely."

"Within a week of posting our business opportunities on SourceGenerics we had received over 10 quality enquiries from leading generics companies throughout the world."
