Robust numbers outweigh Lansoprazole delay


Natco reported an exemplary set of numbers. Revenues grew 42% YoY to | 180 crore (I-direct estimate: | 148 crore) driven by a sharp rise in export APIs, which shot up ~97%. Over and above the improvement in consignments, some of the API exports from the previous quarter may have been recognised during the quarter. EBITDA margins remained flat YoY. EBITDA, in value terms, grew 43% to | 44 crore, far higher than Idirect estimate of | 30 crore on the back of an improved operating performance. The PAT grew 32% to | 21 crore (I-direct estimate: | 16 crore). Note that the robust operating performance was despite 1) subdued performance of domestic oncology formulations and 2) nonrecurring expenses of ~| 11-12 crore. We are upgrading the stock to BUY as we see improved visibility. Lansoprazole approval delayed further The much awaited USFDA approval for anti-ulcerant Lansoprazole seems to have got delayed further. The management has indicated satisfactory corroboration to the issues by the agency and expects the approval shortly. Post approval, Lansoprazole will be marketed by Actavis and Breckenridge in the US. It is currently a five player market. IPAB rejects Bayer plea on Nexavar, Natco can continue the marketing During the quarter, the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) rejected a petition by Bayer seeking a stay on an order of the Controller of Patents, granting compulsory licence to Natco for cancer drug Nexavar. Note that in March the Controller of Patents granted the first ever compulsory licence to Natco to make sorofenib tosylate, a generic version of Bayers high-priced anti-cancer drug Nexavar. Blow-out quarter, re-rating on cards We expect revenues, EBITDA and net profit to grow at a CAGR of 23%, 30% and 38%, respectively, in FY12-14E. We now value the base business at | 399 i.e. 11x (10x earlier) FY14E EPS of | 36.2. Even though a marginal player, Natco remains a focused niche player in the oncology segment and the Nexavar victory will only strengthen its forte. Note that Nexavar still remains just a small part of the portfolio. Our SoTP based target price now stands at | 452 (| 399 for base business + | 53.3 for Para IV/FTF). We upgrade to BUY despite delay in Lansoprazole launch.

IPAB rejects Bayer plea on Nexavar, Natco can continue the marketing During the quarter, the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) rejected a petition by Bayer seeking a stay on an order of the Controller of Patents, granting compulsory licence to Natco for cancer drug Nexavar. Note that in March the Controller of Patents granted the first ever compulsory licence to Natco to make sorofenib tosylate, a generic version of Bayers high-priced anti-cancer drug Nexavar. Bayer obtained a patent in India in 2008 for Nexavar, which cost | 2.8 lakh for a pack of 120 tablets, equivalent to a months dosage. Natco was told to sell the pack at | 8,800. As per the licence conditions, Natco is supposed to pay a 6% royalty to Bayer from the sales of sorofenib tosylate.
