Gland Pharma follows a unique B2B business model (96% of FY20 sales) across global markets, which comprises an IPled model(69% of B2B revenue) and the technology transfer model (27% of B2B revenue). The B2B model helps the company achieve economies of scale at the product level, leading to cost leadership and enables market share gains.
This coupled with a strong compliance track record,(reflected in zero observations from the USFDA for all plants) augurs well for Gland’s growth. Consistent shortage of Injectables in the US offers substantial growth opportunities. Further, entry in the Chinese generic injectable markets is expected to be a key growth driver, as Gland Pharma plans to file 60 products in China going ahead (already filed 6 dossiers).
Gland Pharma's strong capabilities (reflected in commercialization of various niche products) are well supported by a sturdy R&D muscle, which alludes to a robust product pipeline. Cumulatively, this points at the company’s ability to consistently commercialise its product pipeline and gain market share. Geographically, the US forms a strong base for the company’s growth while RoW markets are expected to grow at a sturdy pace. Further, Gland has a higher degree of vertical integration across its product categories, which would enhance operational efficiencies, leading to margin expansion. Gland Pharma expects sales and PAT to report a 23.7% and 25.7% CAGR over FY20 to FY23.
