...purchase of Eli Lilly common stock. We performed various analyses, which included strategy analysis, fundamental analysis, valuation, and risk assessment. Our absolute valuation calculation shows that Eli Lilly is slightly undervalued however; our relative valuation calculation shows that Eli Lilly is fairly valued. We decided to use the relative valuation recommendation because of the risk that is involved in the industry today. Current risk factors that are threatening Eli Lilly are the FDA approval process, patent expirations, pipeline concerns, the purchase of Imclone and how it will be integrated into the company, and finally the ongoing recession. Eli Lilly currently has drugs pending FDA approval, notably Effient, a blood-thinner. Effient’s approval has been delayed twice, and is currently going to be reviewed by a special committee within the FDA in 2009. Analysts believe that Effient can become the dominant drug used around the world grossing billions in revenue; however, the FDA has not approved it yet. Eli Lilly also has patents running out on several of its highest grossing drugs including Zyprexa, Cymbalta, and Gemzar between 2011 and 2013. These are Eli Lilly’s top three grossing drugs and the patent expiration will raise questions about their future pipeline after 2013, especially if Effient does not get approved. Overall with all these questions and risk factors we decided to go with our relative valuation, which shows us Eli Lilly is......

Eli Lilly Ranbaxy Jv

...Assignment 2 —Eli Lilly in India: Rethinking the Joint Venture Strategy Executive summary Eli Lilly entered the Indian market in a joint venture with Ranbaxy, in order to capitalize on increasingly favourable market conditions, low costs and to gain a foothold for entering other Asian markets. This move succeeded because of a commitment to values for the two partners, cooperation and excellent management. Ranbaxy smoothed the way with existing distribution networks, government contacts and local market knowledge. Lilly provided foreign expertise, competent managers and capital. The venture earned both firms significant advances in market share and earnings, and the relationship remained positive throughout. As the Indian economy has become increasingly liberalized and open to foreign investment, there is great potential in the market. Other foreign firms are entering the market, and as a well-established powerful player in the market Lilly no longer needs to use Ranbaxy as an intermediate. Lilly seeks continued, stable growth in the region and needs to consolidate and refocus its business in niche drugs to remain competitive in a changing global business environment. Ranbaxy wants to move away from generics to become a more internationalized and R&D based company like Lilly, but needs significant cash flow in order to grow abroad. Both firms are considering options for the future. Problem statement Eli Lilly-Ranbaxy, a joint venture in India...

...4: ELI LILLY 1. Por lo que podemos observar viendo los resultados obtenidos por la joint-venture, podemos afirmar que sí que se llevó a cabo una buena estrategia al realizar la joint-venture entre Lilly y Ranbaxy, ya que la cuenta de resultados tanto de la empresa conjunta como las de ambas empresas por separado obtuvieron un incremento en sus beneficios, no solo obteniendo reducciones en los costes sino también aprovechándose de las buenas referencias que podían obtener de ambas empresas para combinarlas en la joint-venture, el buen conocimiento del mercado y la reputación en la india de Ranbaxy y la asociación “inconsciente” de calidad que generaban los productos extranjeros importados. Además la buena afinidad entre ambas empresas y el que supieran mantener en mente el objetivo común de ambas que era el buen funcionamiento de la joint-venture, fue un aliciente más en esta asociación. Debemos destacar también el que Eli Lilly omitiese la entrada en el mercado indio de aquellos productos a los que les convenía más la existencia de patentes de producto en lugar de las patentes de proceso (como por el ejemplo el Prozac) y de este modo evitar que otras productoras indias aprovechasen el lanzamiento de dicho producto para variar el proceso obteniendo el mismo producto, podríamos decir que hizo una buena gestión evitando lanzarse piedras a su propio tejado. 2.

...Eli Lilly Eli Lilly was founded in 1876 and started off as a small pharmaceutical manufacturer. The company has grown to be one of the biggest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world. In the 1980’s their number one product was Prozac, and right behind that was insulin. Eli Lilly invested over $700 million dollars of research and development money into improving the lives and health of diabetic patients. There are two types of diabetes, Type I, and Type II. Type I or juvenile, is typically diagnosed in children or young adults. Diabetic children are not able to produce insulin on their own, therefore, they must have insulin injections daily. In 1921 there was no effective treatment for Type I diabetes and patients were only expected to live one year after diagnosis. Type II diabetes is the most common form of this disease and is general caused by obesity and can happen at any age. With Type II, the body does not use insulin properly, so it tries to compensate, but blood glucose levels become irregular. When first diagnosed with Type II, most patients take an oral dose of medication to help regulate insulin levels, as the disease progresses it usually necessitates insulin injections. In 1995 Europe and North America accounted for 80% of the world’s insulin market. The high rate of diagnosis in the United States and Europe was due to the higher than average incidence of obesity. Approximately 2% of the world’s......

Eli Lilly

...Question1: Did Eli Lilly pursue the right strategy to enter the Indian market? In 1993 Eli Lilly, one of the leading pharmaceutical firms in the USA, started a joint venture in India with the leading Indian company Ranbaxy. The decision was dictated by the conditions of the US market and opportunities of the Indian market. Costlier manufacturing practices due to strict governmental control, soaring prices in 1990s, invasion of cheap generics to the USA market as opposed to low costs in India and new regulations that opened Indian market to foreign investments (up to 51%) created tempting conditions to enter one of the emerging huge markets of the world. Alliance with Ranbaxy was a smart strategy for Eli Lilly to establish its presence in India. Ranbaxy was the second largest manufacturing company of bulk drugs and generics with domestic market share of 15% in India with established distribution network and the second largest exporter to different countries, including Russia (which Eli Lilly was attempting to reach), with capital cost 50-75% lower than those of comparable US plant and R&D expenses of 2-5% of sales. Besides, Ranbaxy developed its own process for Eli Lilly's patented drug Cefaclor. Since Eli Lilly's product patent for Cefaclor expired in 1992 and the firm was expecting to protect its monopoly with process patents which were due to expire only in 1994, this gave great scope for a mutually advantageous agreement between the two companies. There was also......

Eli Lilly Case

...Eli Lilly is a leading pharmaceutical company located in Indianapolis, Indiana, which specializes in treatment of several high profile diseases. Evista, a newly developed drug by Eli Lilly, is an estrogen replacement therapy medicine for prevention of osteoporosis which through testing has seemed to lower the incidence of breast cancer in women. This FDA approved drug is expected to be a potential blockbuster and generate revenue of 1 billion US dollars per year for the company. Pharmaceuticals is a highly competitive market and it is imperative for the leading companies to recuperate their development costs and generate returns for stockholders as well as fund research and development for potential new drugs at almost a constant rate. With the profitable lifetime for drugs, in United States, being significantly shortened since the 1980’s, Lilly Research Laboratories was able to develop Evista in a much shorter time period by adopting a Matrix-Based development approach and utilizing heavyweight teams. This strayed from their usual path of function-based product development strategy. With the possibility of profound profits from the commercialization of Evista, Dr. Gus Watanabe has to weigh whether the increasing internal resistance to heavyweight teams and shortage of resources is worth it. Watanabe needs to make a decision about adopting this new successful heavyweight team approach for commercialization of Evista as well as product development. Changes in the past few......

Eli Lilly & Company

...Eli Lilly & Company Flexible Facility Decision (1993) Case Context Set in 1993, the case focuses on a difficult decision faced by Steve Mueller, manager of strategic facilities and planning at Eli Lilly, about the type of manufacturing facility to construct for the three new pharmaceutical products that the company plans to launch in 1996. A number of growing industry and company specific conditions have made this decision particularly relevant and have sparked debate with management and throughout the company. In response to these conditions, Lilly management decided to establish a set of company-wide goals that focused on improving time to market for its products in development and a reduction of manufacturing costs. Specifically, these goals were: 1. Reduced new product time to market by 50% from the current 8 -12 year process 2. Reduce the cost of manufacturing by (25%) The key to achieving these goals was Mueller’s decision of what kind of manufacturing facilities should be used to produce the new products. This equated to a debate between a strategy of “specialized” manufacturing plant which had worked well for Lilly in the past, and a proposed strategy of building “flexible” manufacturing facilities that could accommodate almost any of the company’s new products. It was required that whichever facilities strategy chosen must align with the two company goals listed above. Our Recommendation Based on our......

Eli Lilly Case Study

...University of Maryland Case Study Analysis Eli Lilly: Developing Cymbalta Case Study AMBA 650 Section 1131 Kelvin Harris January 24, 2012 Executive Summary Eli Lilly and Company resounding success was the arrival of Prozac in 1988. By mid-1988, a new anti-depressant team was formed to find and develop a drug that would be the successor to Prozac. The strategic issues and problems they faced were developing a new drug to replace Prozac, meeting the company budget constraints to perform clinical trials, and finally launch the new drug by mid-2001. The analysis and evaluation revealed that the pharmaceutical industry is changing fast and it usually takes a long time and millions of dollars to develop a new drug. The recommendation for Eli Lilly is to take the lead in developing the new drug Cymbalta, invest a stable share of the company revenue, seek the FDA approval for the development of Cymbalta before going to market, and not change their market plan from the FDA approved Cymbalta dosage of 20 mg twice daily. Introduction Eli Lilly and Company was founded by Colonel Eli Lilly, Lilly’s namesake, in 1876 when he purchased a laboratory on Pearl Street in Indianapolis, Indiana. Eli Lilly was a pharmacist who had served in the Union Army during the Civil War. The company success included creating the process for applying gelatin-coating to pills for easier swallowing and the introduction of Iletin which was the first mass-produced insulin. ......

Taking advantage of its positive brand image can present advantages in obtaining opportunities that exist in their market. This will help Lilly broadening its portfolio. 2. Their long presence in the market and being one of the oldest companies in the pharmaceutical industry will be very positive for the company to obtain alliances for faster growth, better brand recognition, and to meet market’s competitive forces. 6.0 Alternative Actions: For the resolution of the lowered sales volume and the firm's shared market, there are three suggested alternative course of actions. Lilly’s first alternative includes the launching of new products with required features, such as pain relief, and one time dosage, however, capital consumption would be required for the production process, time and labor for marketing of new products would need longer lead times, and clinical trials would be required which create additional expenses for the Lilly. The next alternative for the company is to conduct preliminary market research. The customers' response for the existing drugs as well......

Oyewole. Introduction Eli Lilly and Company was established on May 10, 1876 in Indianapolis, IN and has been in business more than 132 years. The founder of this pharmaceutical company was Colonel Eli Lilly who was a union army member during the Civil War. This company deals with the development, discovery, sell, and manufacturer of drugs, such as Prozac and integrates supply-chain management within its departments.

This project was the first largest insulin production that the company together with the University of Toronto invented. All through the 1950’s, various advancements were introduced such as the invention of the oral penicillin and the antibiotic known as Erythromycin. Prozac was produced in 1988 and latter succeeded in 1990. In 2000, the drug Zyprexa was utilized in the treatment of schizophrenia and later, the drug Gemzer was introduced for chemotherapy.
