Concall highlights
Oncology oral solids and injectable facilities to be operational by FY2017
end.
12-16 US ANDA approvals expected till FY2018 end.
R&D expenses to be `400-450cr in FY2017.
33 pending ANDAs, of which ~40% are Para IV/ FTFs.
Capex for FY2017 to be `600cr.
Investment arguments
Focus on chronic segment to drive domestic formulation growth: Alembic
Pharmaceuticals has been restructuring its business portfolio, which would aid in
improving its growth and operating performance. The company’s domestic
formulation business contributed 44% to its total sales in FY2016. The company
has a strong field force of ~3,600 medical representatives. Going forward, the
company expects its domestic formulation business to at least grow in line with the
industry growth rate, before it sees an improvement in the share of the high growth
chronic segment. For FY2016-18E, we expect the domestic formulation business to
grow at a CAGR of 15.0%.
Exports- US the key growth driver: On the exports front, the formulation business
contributed by 30% to the total turnover, with majority of the contribution coming
from Europe and the US. In the US, the company has filed for ~82 ANDAs till date
and received 49 approvals. The company, going forward, expects to keep its
momentum high in terms of number of filings, by filing around 10-12 ANDAs per
annum. For FY2016-18E, we expect exports to register a CAGR of 13.6%, mainly on
back of base effect impact of FY2016 (sales grew by 46%, due to launch of Abilify).
Outlook and valuation: Over FY2016-18E, we expect the company to post a
CAGR of 13.9% in sales, while profitability will be under pressure on back of
higher R&D spend, which is likely to reach 13-14% of sales in FY2017-FY2018E.
We recommend our Neutral rating on the stock.
