Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd

...9-707-441 REV: MARCH 30, 2010 TARUN KHANNA KRISHNA PALEPU CLAUDINE MADRAS Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd In Israel we have a 1970s song based on a poem from 1953 by Amir Gilboa about Theodor Herzl.1 It has a line in it about Herzl: “Suddenly a man rises in the morning, feels he is a people, and starts walking.” That is exactly what Hurvitz did. Suddenly he woke up in the morning, feels he is a giant world class company, and starts walking. No one, aside from Herzl, has accomplished anything as remotely as impressive in this country as Hurvitz. It was impossible, a million to one odds at best, and he still did it. He woke up one morning and started walking. — Ori Hershkovitz, equity analyst at Tel Aviv-based Leader & Company The markets had not been kind to Teva Pharmaceutical during the first half of 2006. The stock had plunged nearly 30% from January 1 to June 30, erasing billions of dollars from the company’s market capitalization. Even good news, such as reports in July of Teva’s wildly successful introduction of generic Zocor—the largest blockbuster drug ever to go off-patent—had failed to boost the stock significantly. Since nearly every retirement fund and mutual fund in Israel invested in Teva, this drop had been felt throughout the population, in effect amounting to every Israeli family losing NIS 3000, or $675.1 Teva was more than the world’s leading producer of generic pharmaceuticals (see Exhibit 1 for financials). It represented the gold standard of......

It is also a heavily regulated industry. Drugs are evaluated for safety, efficiency, and manufacturing quality as a condition of market access, and promotional messages must adhere to approved product characteristics. Drug prices also are regulated in most countries with national health insurance systems. The main factor that affects the industry is employment because a majority of Sudanese receive health insurance through their employers. Other economic factors such as the number of people who are uninsured or underinsured, performance and industry structure, the effects of regulation on prices, availability and utilization of drugs and productivity as well as the government stimulus plans also affects the industry. Unemployment Paramount to any industry is the number of people who are unemployed. In the first decade of the 20th century, this became a major political issue in the United States. Unemployment affects the pharmaceutical industry in two major ways. First, people who do not have jobs usually do not have the funds to buy the......

Ceo Compensation in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pfizer Merck & Co Bristol-Myers Squibb Vertex 2012 Revenue $59B $47B $21B $1.5B 2011 Revenue $65B $48B $19B $1.0B CEO Read Frazier Andreotti Leiden Base $1.75M $1.5M $1.6M $1.0M Annual Incentive $3.4M $2.5M $3.8M $2.1M Annual LT Incentive (Stock and Stock Options) $12.9M $7.1M $10.9M $2.5M Perks/Other $175k $0.06M $808k $0.01M Vested/Exercised Shares $5.6M Approx. Total $25M $11.1M $17.2M $5.7M According to the Proxy statements, both Pfizer and Mereck have approximately 90% of their compensation as variable, based on company performance. The large discontinuity between the two companies is mostly due to the vested or exercised shares of Pfizer’s Ian Read. Excluding this amount, the companies’ compensation plans are generally aligned with their comparable sizes and company performance. Pfizer offered the largest incentive-based payout to it’s CEO in 2012, justified by the company exceeding two of three performance metrics despite key patent losses and the leadership Read showed throughout the year. Merck ranked their CEO performance as high in a tough environment, but due to a low internal scorecard results and shareholder return rankings Frazier was awarded a lower amount of variable compensation than in 2011.

Industry Trends for the Pharmaceutical Industry

...Industry Trends According to Standard and Poor’s industry service, in the past few years, the pharmaceutical industry has been subjected to heightened competition from generic drugmakers, unprecedented pricing pressure from payers, and hard-to-control inflation in research and development budgets. Furthermore, the  industry has been experiencing a decline in R&D productivity, with a lack of innovative new products being launched in recent years. The industry has suffered due to these problems in 2010, however, improvements in early-stage product pipelines in certain fields, such as cancer and diabetes, show positive long-term potential. Major cost-cutting initiatives, including sales and marketing overhauls and the reorganization of R&D operations, have been introduced as a response to the industry's concerns. New products, as well as an aging population, also provide another indication that the industry has a promising future. 1. Emerging Markets Drive Growth With markets in major developed nations being stagnant or only showing modest growth, pharmaceutical manufacturers are focusing on global emerging markets to provide momentum for industry growth over the coming years. Projections show that these markets will account for over two-fifths of global GDP, and 80% of the world's population by 2015. With respect to the pharmaceutical industry, observers have forecast that emerging markets will drive up to 90% of the sector's growth through 2020. Based on IMS...

Global Pharmaceutical Industry

...The primary focus of this essay is the analysis of the global pharmaceutical industry and the substantially significant factors that shape this industry; the industry is primarily defined by very few yet critically influential factors; these consist of: governing bodies, the role of corporate social responsibility, and the emphasis put on the industry and firms by the Research and Development process. The most consequential factor placing emphasis on the industry is the governing body, with it being the legislative body and largest purchaser of the industry exclusive of the USA creates a strategic dilemma for the corporations in terms of profit maximization. Patent limitation, regulatory controls, price or reimbursement controls and extensive safety legislations are methods adopted by the government to legislate control and limitations over the industry. These legislations construct a paradigm that the main objective behind the intervention is to keep medicinal costs low as the majority of the population i.e. under 18’s, over 65’s and people primarily on benefits, medical costs are paid for by the government and with the ageing population the expenditure is ever increasing hence the various limitations. Being the legislative body and the largest purchaser gives the government various types of buyer control; the case study implies that the industry is a “monopsony”, giving the corporations very little bargaining power in terms of profit maximization and can often alter the......
