("the Company" or the "Group")



ECO Animal Health Group plc is pleased to announce that its subsidiary ECO Animal Health Limited ("ECO") has received two marketing authorisations from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs ("MOA") of the People's Republic of China for the use of Aivlosin(R) Water Soluble Granules ("WSG"). Aivlosin(R) is used for the treatment of a variety of economically important respiratory and enteric (gut) diseases in pigs and poultry.

The first approval allows ECO to market Aivlosin(R) WSG in China for the treatment of respiratory disease caused by Mycoplasma and other sensitive bacteria in chickens laying eggs for human consumption and breeding chickens. Aivlosin(R) is the first antimicrobial to be licensed by the Chinese MOA for laying birds with a zero day drug withdrawal period for eggs.

The second Aivlosin(R) WSG approval is for swine respiratory disease ("SRD") adding three important bacterial respiratory pathogens of swine, Haemophilus parasuis, Pasteurella multocida, and Streptococcus suis to the existing Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae registration. SRD occurs worldwide and causes major economic losses to the pig industry due to mortality, reduction in growth rates and decreased feed efficiency.

Marc Loomes, CEO, commented: "We are delighted to receive these important marketing authorisations for Aivlosin(R) WSG. China is the world's largest producer of table eggs and accounts for more than a third of the world's laying birds. Aivlosin(R) is the first antimicrobial registered for use in laying hens producing eggs for human consumption, with a zero day egg withdrawal period. This will enable ECO to target a new sector, the commercial egg producer, where Mycoplasmosis can cause significant economic losses. China is also the largest pork producing country in the world and broader product label claims in the key SRD segment will serve our business well as the market recovers in the future."
