Biocon Biologics entered into a strategic alliance with SILS for access to 100 million vaccine doses per annum for 15 years. Biosimilar US pipeline: (approvals - Pegfilgrastim, Trastuzumab, Glargine, Adalimumab); filed - Aspart and Bevacizumab • In generics, it is among the world’s largest manufacturers of immunosuppressant and statin APIs.
We maintain HOLD rating due to 1) growing margins sensitivity, 2) Viatris deal and subsequent execution risks and 3) impending price erosion risks, regulatory issues and increasing competitive landscape. We value Biocon at Rs 290 on an SOTP basis.
