This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Professor Dr Andreas Barner, the outgoing chief of Boehringer Ingelheim, was able to report a return to growth for the family-owned German company in 2015 at his final annual conference. The group was boosted by diabetes sales under its partnership with Eli Lilly & Co - as well as by the strength of the dollar. The company reports in euros but books nearly 40% of its sales in the US. With currency effects stripped out, the sales were up by a more modest 4.1% versus the 11.1% as reported.
