Orchid - Investment Philosophy
  • Orchids investment philosophy has been for the
    long term
  • Invested in high-technology, high-quality assets
    from inception. Though investment intensive, this
    has positioned the Company ahead in its regulated
    market initiatives.
  • The Company undertook a strategic transformation
    into a composite pharmaceutical major, focused on
    US generics and drug discovery, entailing
    relatively long gestation periods.
  • The Company has also invested in research
    oriented Joint Ventures, which have a large
    upside potential
  • The above resulted in relatively high leverage,
    reduced net margins and lower sales to asset
    ratio. Yet, the company has high operating
    margins - Over 21.65 at the EBIDTA levels -
    Comparing favorably with the industry. Lower
    margins at net level have been more due to the
    impact of depreciation and interest. Cash
    profit-wise, Orchid is comparable with its peers
    in the industry.
  • The company has now world-class infrastructure in
    compliance with global regulatory requirements.
    The completed projects provide a launch pad for
  • The Company is confident that with its
    world-class infrastructure in place, it is poised
    for high growth and profitability, which will
    lead to the following
  • High margins
  • Low Leverage
  • Good sales to asset ratio

Generics offers a huge market potential
  • Generics - Equal in Quality, competitive in
    price - is a compelling statement for a cost
    conscious managed healthcare service provider
  • According to a US Congressional Budget Office
    study, generics save over USD 8-10 billion every
  • The global generics industry is currently USD 42
    billion in size and is growing at a rate of 10
    -12 pa as compared to the overall growth rate
    of 7-9 pa for the pharmaceutical industry. It
    is estimated to touch USD 60 billion by 2005
  • The US is the largest generics market. (USD 14
  • Typically, the generic version is priced at a
    60-70 discount to the original version. This is
    due to the premium pricing of the original
    molecule and low developmental costs associated
    with a generic version
  • In Japan, the discount rates amount to only 10
    due to price control implications. Even this
    situation, provides for healthy margins
  • Generics offer good profitability to the players
    with Indian manufacturers entering the fray,
    profit opportunities could be even more

  • contains the same active ingredient as that of
    the innovators product
  • is identical in strength, dosage form and route
    of administration
  • has the same indications, dosing and labeling
  • is therapeutically bio-equivalent to the
    innovator drug
  • meets the same batch-to-batch requirements for
    strength, purity and quality and,
  • is manufactured under the same strict good
    manufacturing practice regulations as the branded
  • Data from the Pharmaceutical Researchers and
    Manufacturers of America show that it takes an
    average of 15 years and costs around USD 800
    million for the average drug to reach the
  • Only about 200 in 10000 compounds that enter
    pre-clinical testing make it to human testing
    phase and of these, only one is approved
  • Therefore a new product is provided patent
    protection for a period of 20 years (effectively
    10 years excluding the development period)
  • During this period, the product develops brand
    recognition and goodwill in the marketplace
    (subject to its efficacy)
  • Competition intends to partake of this market
    acceptance of the product
  • Regulations provide for introduction of a generic
    version without the time-consuming and costly
    aspects of clinical trials (Besides, the costly
    discovery process is not required!)

The US Generics Opportunity (2/2)
  • To introduce a generic version of a product, an
    Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) has to be
    made with the US FDA
  • An ANDA must have a patent certification. This
    certification must make one of the following
    statements. This certification determines under
    which category (Para) the application is being
  • Para I No patent information on the drug that
    is the subject of the ANDA has been submitted to
    the FDA
  • Para II Such patent has expired
  • Para III The date on which such patent expires
  • Para IV That such patent is invalid or will not
    be infringed by the manufacture, use or sale of
