Key Management Recent Developments:

  1. Steady growth to continue in base business. Natco Pharma’s management is confident of achieving 15-20% revenue growth in its base business. The growth would be largely driven by strong traction in its API business, the growing base of export formulations and its stable domestic oncology portfolio.
  2. Exiting the domestic branded generic (non-oncology) business. Keen competition is leading the company to move out of the domestic non oncology branded generics business.
  3. US launches are key triggers. Natco’s healthy pipeline of niche products in the US market would attract huge cash flows. It has made 31 ANDA filings, of which eight have been approved. Of the pending ANDAs, it has four FTF (first-to-file) opportunities. Copaxone is not an FTF but is the largest opportunity that would come up in FY15-16 depending upon the outcome of the hearing in Sep’13.

INDUSTRY OUTLOOK:
The Indian pharmaceutical industry is expected to grow by 10-12 per cent during 2013-14, says a recent study by ICRA. The main driver for growth will come from generic opportunities in the US. Generic opportunities in US will continue to drive revenue growth for Indian pharma companies. Drugs worth $80 billion are expected to go off patent over the next four to five years. Indian companies have lined up strong product pipelines of pending abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs). Acquisitions by Indian companies to add technical capabilities and focus on strengthening branded business (albeit on a small scale) are also likely to drive growth going forward as companies feel the need to diversify.
The impact of new drug price control order (DPCO) though expected to be limited, could also get offset by volume expansion and efforts of industry participants to take price hike in rest of the portfolio.

  1. Lanthanum Carbonate

The patent for this belongs to Shire, which markets it under the brand name, Fosrenol. The brand commands ~US$110m in annual revenue in the US, and ~US$180m globally. Natco has partnered with Lupin for this product.
