Good approvals- Monodox and Cipro OS

Lupin gains FDA approval for generic Monodox and Cipro OS
Limited competition and supply constraints make Monodox an
interesting opportunity for Lupin
Monodox approval is a surprise and is not explicitly modelled in our
estimates. Monodox caps (generic: Doxycycline Monohydrate) has annual
Saion Mukherjee - NFASL
sales of USD 180m in the US with limited competition. Monodox is available
in three strengths: 50mg, 75mg and 100mg. The brand Monodox has more
than 70% market share, given generic supply constraints.
Lalit Kumar - NFASL
The 75mg strength is the most interesting opportunity, in our view. The
strength accounts for USD 90m in sales with only Ranbaxy and the innovator
Aqua Pharm. In terms of sales Acqua Pharm has 73% market share.
In 50mg and 100mg, the competition is relatively high with generics
approvals for Ranbaxy, Par and Actavis. Both strengths combined represent USD 90m in sales. However, there are supply constraints with the generics and most of the market share is currently with the innovator. Acqua Pharm has ~78% market share in sales term as per IMS.
Given the limited competition, LPC could record ~USD 20m in revenues from the product in FY15, in our view.
Exclusivity in Cipro OS
Cipro OS (Generic: Ciprofloxacin Oral suspension) has annual sales of USD 8.6m. The opportunity size is much smaller. Lupin is the first filer and is likely to remain the only player for a considerable period. We think the product is likely to have sales of less than USD 5m, but at a higher margin.
We believe Lupin’s US pipeline has the potential to surprise on the upside. On our EPS estimates, the stock currently trades at 20.5x FY15E and 18.1xFY16. Retain Buy.

appropriate valuation methodology determined by the analyst. Valuation methodologies include, but are not limited to, discounted cash flow
analysis, expected return on equity and multiple analysis. Analysts may also indicate expected absolute upside/downside relative to the stated
target price, defined as (target price - current price)/current price. STOCKS
