CEO Message

My sincere greetings to all of our global visitors to Yungjin Pharm website.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you as you seek to find out more about our company,
our products, our people, and our culture. Yungjin Pharm has a unique place in the Korean
Pharma industry as one looks back through our long history.

Since its founding in 1952, we had been a leading Korean Pharma for more than three decades,
especially well known for its international business with Japan in both licensing in innovative
medicines and for being one of the pioneers to manufacture and export high quality antibiotics
(which still represents an important part of our business today).
In synergy, we had established a solid domestic business through our diversified ETC generics,
OTC portfolio, and some iconic consumer brands.

In our more recent history since 2004, we are very proud in having joined the KT&G group of
affiliated companies and starting our transformation to become a global pharmaceutical company.
As such, Yungjin Pharm has been designated as an "Innovative R&D Company" by the Korean
government for its continuing efforts to discover life-saving drugs in oncology, respiratory,
and rare diseases. Recently, we merged with the R&D-focused KT&G Life Sciences to establish
a first-in-class discovery expertise. As for our employees, we have also been recognized
as a "Best Family Friendly Company" working to achieve a great work-life balance and
cater to the needs of our Yungjin family.

Presently, our transformation to become a global pharma is gaining momentum as we spread
our wings beyond our core business in Korea and Japan into China/Southeast Asia through
our export business and to US/EU with our innovative R&D drug pipeline. We are driven
to search for creative, win-win global collaborations through open innovation/partnering models
and to elevate our manufacturing capability to support such growth opportunities.

In parallel, Yungjin Pharm is passionate about strengthening our domestic business into a solid
foundation from which all above-mentioned global transformation takes place, including adhering
to a high standard of commercial and corporate integrity/compliance. We will embody
our corporate motto - "The medicine for your life" - as we believe in discovering, developing,
producing, and providing access to the "right" medicine for our patients and customers in order to
enhance their lives.

In closing, I hope that your website visit will be the starting point to a long, trusting relationship
with Yungjin Pharm., whether you are a patient, physician, investor, (potential) employee or
business partner, or just browsing. It would be my honor and privilege if you would join me
in watching Yungjin Pharm transform and grow into a truly global pharma in the coming decade.

Thank you.

Chae J. Lee, CEO/President
