Commissioned Research: Investing for the future
The ongoing pandemic has caused an increase in depression and alcohol and substance abuse. At the same time, social distancing has triggered a need for digital provision of healthcare solutions. This bodes well for Orexo's newly launched digital therapies for depressions and alcohol abuse . While the future sales of the digital offering could be several times Orexo's current revenues, the launch process implies significant short-term investment. We take a more conservative approach to the sales potential of Orexo's digital offering than the company, but nevertheless increase our DCF-based fair value to SEK 100-126 (72-82) per share.

Commissioned Research: Favourable market for a digital launch
Orexo yet again proved that Zubsolv is resilient against the recent entry of generic competition. We argue, however, that investors should look at the potential from the upcoming launch of the digital therapeutic offering, planned for Q3 2020 at the latest – particularly since the COVID-19 outbreak has increased demand for digital healthcare solutions.

Commissioned Research: Significant earnings potential in digital therapies
Orexo has recently expanded its research and development efforts in digital therapeutics. In addition to five pharma projects, the company's pipeline portfolio now also includes two digital therapy candidates. In this report, we elaborate on the earnings potential for vorvida and OXD01, Orexo's digital treatments for alcohol misuse disorder and opioid addiction. Both could add significantly to future earnings and the former is planned for launch as early as Q3 2020. Marketing material commissioned by Orexo.

Commissioned Research: Impressions from CMD
At its capital markets day yesterday, Orexo elaborated on the company's pipeline (first product launch as early as Q3 2020). Its ambition is to build on the company's well-established US operation in addiction therapy. The company estimates its pipeline revenue potential is in the range of SEK 4.7-6.7bn (USD 480-695m). If this materialised, it would significantly add to future earnings (revenues in 2019 totalled SEK 845m).

Commissioned Research: Modest outlook for 2020
While Q4 2019 marked another quarter of solid growth (Zubsolv US revenues up 7.5% y/y organically), the company foresees flat y/y sales for Zubsolv in the US during 2020. To secure long-term growth, Orexo will continue investing in its pipeline, as confirmed by its outlook for an 8-18% y/y increase in opex – mostly driven by higher R&D spending. Based on this softer-than-anticipated outlook, we lower our sales forecast by 4-9% and adjust our DCF-based valuation range to SEK 70-80 (78-93) per share.

Commissioned Research: Q3 ticked many boxes
Once again Orexo proved its ability to leverage its operations by posting a Q3 report that ticked many boxes. Sales increased by 6.7% y/y, despite a challenging market. At the same time, both gross margins and underlying operating expenditure improved significantly. The strong performance resulted in an adjusted EBITDA margin uplift of 15.3 pp y/y. During the period, Orexo also announced a partnership agreement with the goal of broadening its portfolio with a new digital therapy for Opioid Use Disorder. We update our DCF-based fair value range to SEK 78-93 per share. - Marketing material commissioned by Orexo

Commissioned Research: Proving its resilience
There has been turbulence in the market where Orexo's flagship product, Zubsolv, is sold, but this had only a limited impact on Orexo's performance, however, increasing revenues by 6.7% y/y at CER. While Orexo continues to show solid revenue and earnings growth for its existing products (EBITDA up 19.4% y/y), it is also continuously evaluating and taking opportunities to broaden its product portfolio and geographical footprint. We reiterate our DCF-based valuation range of SEK 72-93 per share. Marketing material commissioned by Orexo.

Commissioned Research: H2 COGS reduction target already reached in Q1
Orexo posted a Q1 report with total revenue of SEK 174.3m versus SEK 139.7m in the same period last year, bang in line with our estimates. Zubsolv's US sales increased 9.3% y/y in local currency, to SEK 161.7m, spurred by improved market access. Ahead of schedule, Orexo reached its H2 2019 COGS-reduction target of 35% versus 2017 as early as Q1, which in turn bolstered margins in the quarter and contributes to our full-year positive estimate revisions (2019 EBIT estimates up by 19%). We increase our DCF-based valuation range to SEK 72-93 (64-84).

Commissioned Research: Court ruling does not impact earnings potential
On 29 March, Orexo announced that the United States District Court for the District of Delaware has ruled that Actavis' generic versions of Suboxone and Subutex tablets do not infringe Orexo's US Patent 8,454,996. Provided that the ruling stands, this means that Orexo will not receive any compensation from Actavis. We did not include a successful outcome in the litigation trial in our estimates and therefore reiterate our DCF-based fair value range of SEK 64-84 per share.

Commissioned Research: Improved operational leverage in 2019
Orexo posted a Q4 report with total revenue of SEK 227.1m, versus SEK 191m in the same period last year. This sales growth was driven solely by Zubsolv in the US, which reached revenue of SEK 166.7m, up by 21.3% y/y in local currency. We view the continued solid uptake for Zubsolv in the US as positive, but its total revenues missed our expectations by around 5%. We attribute the miss to higher-than-expected rebates and lower demand for Abstral. In the report, last year's opex outlook at around SEK 500m was reiterated for 2019, implying solid operating leverage. Marketing material commissioned by Orexo
