10 DEC 2018
Commissioned Research: CMD points to bright long-term prospects
Orexo announced new strategic objectives at its well-attended capital markets day. A comprehensive agenda and a mix of internal and external speakers bolster our confidence in our positive outlook for the company for 2019 and beyond. Our DCF-based fair value range is SEK 64-84 per share. – Marketing material commissioned by Orexo

30 OCT 2018
Commissioned Research: Strong outlook clouded by legal expenses
Orexo's Q3 report showed continued strong performance for the Zubsolv US business, but slow initial uptake of Zubsolv in Europe and higher legal expenses than we had expected. Therefore, we make slight negative revisions to our near-term Zubsolv sales forecast for the EU and assume somewhat higher costs. However, a solid performance and outlook for Zubsolv in the US, coupled with improved guidance for the manufacturing efficiency programme, reaffirms the long-term prospects.

Commissioned Research: Waiting for a major product deal
Recent Zubsolv prescription data shows a development broadly in line with our expectations and, ahead of the Q3 report, we only make a slight downward correction to our H2 estimates. In the coming months, we will closely monitor early European Zubsolv sales, the US market access situation and potential product acquisitions, as the US commercial platform was further developed by internalising the entire sales force in October. – Marketing material commissioned by Orexo

Commissioned Research: US appeal case won – shares up 75% in 24 hours
Orexo won its appeal case confirming Zubsolv's US intellectual property protection until 2032, preventing early competition from Actavis's generics in 2019. This decision frees up considerable resources to focus on business development instead. The rapid ~75% share price appreciation also supports Orexo's M&A firepower beyond its cash position of SEK 0.5bn. - Marketing material commissioned by Orexo

11 SEP 2018
Commissioned Research: US appeals court rules in Orexo's favour
On 10 September, Orexo finally received notification from the US Federal Court of Appeals in its litigation process against Actavis, a subsidiary of Teva. The court ruled in Orexo's favour, reversing the previous invalidity decision on the '330 patent, which protects Orexo's key product, Zubsolv. This new move reinforces Zubsolv patent protection (expiring in 2032). Orexo will now request that the District Court of Delaware issues a judgment that Actavis’ generic Zubsolv products infringe the ‘330 patent. The decision process has demanded considerable time and resources, so we find it positive that management now can put its full focus on growing the Zubsolv business and continuing the good operational momentum it is currently experiencing.

16 JUL 2018
Commissioned Research: Orexo’s best Q2 yet
Net sales grew by 25.5% y/y to SEK 200m in Q2. The main growth drivers were Zubsolv US sales, which grew 28% in SEK, ie 30% y/y in local currency, and a milestone payment of SEK 31m by Mundipharma due to the European launch of Zubsolv in June 2018. The US market for buprenorphine-naloxone (BNX) maintained momentum and Orexo’s Zubsolv was the only branded competitor to gain market share compared to Q1. Marketing material commissioned by Orexo

27 JUN 2018
Commissioned Research: Commissioned research: Combatting the US opioid epidemic
Orexo is a fully integrated, speciality pharmaceuticals company based in Uppsala, Sweden, and with commercial operations in the US. Its 2017 revenue stemmed mostly from opioid addiction (76%) and breakthrough cancer pain (18%) drugs, based on its proprietary formulation technology platform. Orexo had an EBITDA margin of 12% in 2017, which we estimate will increase to 17% by 2019. Marketing material commissioned by Orexo.
