Genomma Lab Internacional Reports Fourth Quarter & Full Year 2023 Results

"Due to the abrupt devaluation of the Argentine peso in late December, accounting rules required Genomma Lab to record a non-cash negative impact on 4Q23 and full year 2023 earnings. However, excluding this extraordinary accounting effect, the Company's core business is solid with good prospects. This information has been proactively and transparently presented, enabling investors to understand that this is an isolated event, not indicative of operating issues. Genomma remains committed to delivering value for its shareholders through a strong and growing business."
