  1. 1. An Analyst’s View: The Drug Delivery Opportunity Ian Sanderson Managing Director Senior Research Analyst Specialty Pharmaceuticals 1
  2. 2. An Analyst’s View: The Drug Delivery Opportunity1. What defines drug delivery in the eyes of Wall Street?2. Where do the opportunities lie in drug delivery? – the Wall Street perspective3. Valuing drug delivery development programs4. Financing drug delivery development2
  3. 3. Market perspectives – How we define drug deliveryOld: New: Reformulation of an existing  New molecular entities, with compound – usually off- new PD profile patent  Differentiating profiles for Mostly oral controlled-release complex molecules Out-licensed post POC - or  Site-specific, targeted delivery earlier - in return for royalty technologies stream  Internally developed or Once a life-cycle management partnered strategy, now a generic development requirement  NME risk and economics3
  4. 4. Market perspectives – Where do the opportunities lie? Investors focused here MARKET OPPORTUNITY NARROW BROAD NME Targeted Therapies Ocular Delivery Oral Pegylation Carrier-Based Depot Injections Pulmonary Delivery Sustained Release Implants Injectable Pegylation REGULATORY COMPLEXITY Transdermal Solubility Enhancement Transmucosal Oral Tamper/Abuse Resistance Oral Controlled Release505(b)2 NDA/ANDA 4
  5. 5. Market perspectives – Where do the opportunities lie? Evolving regulatory and reimbursement landscape 1. Gradual shift toward comparative effectiveness evaluation – moves U.S. standards closer to E.U. standards raises regulatory and reimbursement hurdles raises differentiation standard for development partners 1. Biosimilar regulatory pathway creates opportunities 2. Development/commercial partners: new goals for drug delivery  fewer lifecycle extension programs  greater focus on changing/improving therapeutic profile …driving shift toward NME/NCE development for drug delivery5
  6. 6. Market perspectives – Where do the opportunities lie? Business Models shifting back toward partnership model EVOLUTION OF THE DRUG DELIVERY BUSINESS MODEL 1980s to early 1990s Mid-1990s to Mid-2000s 2008 to currentBroad technology platforms Companies built around products Technology platforms targeting rather than technologies complex drug delivery issuesDevelopment partnership, Internal product development Development partnership, royalty-based model full integration ("FIPCO") royalty-based model niche commercial capabilitiesStandard equity financing Creative, off-balance sheet financing Creative, royalty-based financing M&A Partner financing M&AALZA, Elan, SkyePharma, etc. ALZA, Elan, Alkermes, Inhale, etc Nektar, ImmunoGen, Seattle Genetics, etc. 6
  7. 7. Valuing drug delivery development programs 4 key valuation factors: 1. Targeted patient population and likely penetration 2. Estimated pricing  Incorporates therapeutic profile/differentiation 3. Discount rate  Incorporates cost of capital plus hurdle return rate  We assume positive NPV in our analyses 4. Probability of clinical/regulatory/market success  Usually a rough estimate based on what we know of clinical trial design, FDA guidance, and medical need7

  9. 9. Valuing drug delivery development programsChanging Assumptions:Revenues – Longer development timelines (larger, longer pivotal trials) Slower revenue ramps, due to managed care restrictions in U.S. Higher year 4-8 sales estimates, due to global sales infrastructuresCosts – Higher development costs (+20-40%, depending on the category) Lower GPM in competitive U.S. markets and ROW markets Lower relative promotional/marketing spending (as % of sales)Terminal multiple:Discount rate (cost of capital plus risk premium):Probability of success:9
  10. 10. Financing drug delivery developmentOptions more limited in volatile current market environment Public market equity financing currently expensive – if available at all Debt/Convertible financing more available – inflexible in a downside scenario Pharma/Biotech partner financing – important external validation to investors – development goals aligned – usually non-dilutive to equity investors Royalty-based financing – available for later-stage programs only – lower capital costs than equity, less restrictive than debt10

  12. 12. An Analyst’s View: The Drug Delivery OpportunityConclusions:1. Drug Delivery returning to its routes of solving Tx problems  Platform technologies targeting more complex delivery problems  Development costs increasing – increased reliance on partnerships  NPV’s remain positive – aided by good royalty terms2. Investors again looking for transformative delivery technologies  High unmet medical needs, strong pricing trends, little managed care  But…less willing to fund development risks and commercialization3. …But Pharma companies willing to pay up for novel technologies in earlier development stages 12
