Publikation: Auslandsstrategie auf dem Prüfstand - KPMG - Jun 19, 2009

- Die globale Rezession trifft auch die Wachstumsmärkte immer stärker. Im Auslandsgeschäft sinken die Margen und Absätze – bei gleichzeitig steigenden Kreditkosten und Risiken. -

"Die Hoffnung auf eine Abkopplung der High Growth Markets vom Abschwung in den Industrienationen hat sich schnell zerschlagen. Die Wachstumsmärkte sind ebenso wie die USA, Japan und Europa von der weltweiten Krise betroffen – mit tief greifenden Folgen für ihre Realwirtschaften. „International agierende Unternehmen sollten angesichts dieser Entwicklung ihre Auslandsstrategie überdenken“, rät Thorsten Amann, Leiter International Markets bei KPMG. „Sie müssen umgehend mit effektiven Maßnahmen auf die neuen Marktbedingungen reagieren.“

In einer Sonderpublikation greift KPMG kritische Fragen auf, die sich jetzt für das Auslandsgeschäft stellen: Welche steuerliche Strategie eignet sich für die Krisenlage? Was ist bei Desinvestitionen zu beachten? Wie lässt sich die schwierige Wettbewerbssituation nutzen? In der Veröffentlichung analysieren KPMG-Spezialisten die aktuellen Herausforderungen und zeigen Lösungsansätze auf."

Global Pharma Outlook Negative as Patents Expire - Research Recap - Jun 19, 2009…

"The outlook for the global pharmaceutical industry remains negative, mainly due to looming patent expirations of top-selling drugs and weakening product pipelines, says Moody’s in a new Global Pharmaceutical Industry Outlook. Key points:

+ Consolidation in the form of M&A or diversification into other health-related businesses such as consumer health will persist as companies seek ways to offset the industry’s main challenges: weaker pipelines and patent expirations of top-selling drugs.

+ Although the industry is not as exposed to a recession as others, a prolonged economic downturn could result in more pricing pressure and slowdowns in revenue growth as governments seek to ease the healthcare burden, especially in the US.

+ Healthcare reform in the US will likely increase pricing pressure on prescription drug companies, but may benefit generic manufacturers. Challenging regulatory hurdles, including the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) more cautious stance toward new-drug approvals also adds a layer of uncertainty.

+ Financial performance should remain relatively solid over the near term. Companies continue to report good profits, have strong balance sheets and post good cash-flow generation. Some companies have undertaken restructuring efforts to reduce costs in an effort to help mitigate the impact of current industry challenges.

In an effort to boost their pipelines and offset some of the revenue that will likely be lost as patent exclusivity expires, some companies have picked up the pace of acquisitions, especially mega-deals. “Consolidation in the form of M&A or diversification into other health-related businesses, such as consumer health, is likely to persist as companies seek ways to offset the industry’s main challenges. However, these activities usually result in increased leverage and could, in some cases, create downward rating pressure.”

European pharmaceutical companies appear to be bucking the negative trend, according to a new Industry Report Card from Standard & Poor’s. Rated pharmaceutical firms recorded like-for-like organic sales up 5.3% on average in the first quarter of 2009 on the same period of last year.

“The sector appears to be barely scathed by the economic recession,
primarily because medicines in developed markets are mostly financed by health insurance schemes and their market prospects are swelled by growing populations with increasingly unhealthy lifestyles.”

"What’s more, the large (European) pharmaceutical companies will in our view continue to be buoyed over the next few years by their strength in emerging markets, compensating for more sluggish growth in the large U.S. market."

Manufacturers such as Bayer AG (A-/Negative/A-2), sanofi-aventis S.A. (AA-/Stable/A-1+), or AstraZeneca PLC (AA-/Stable/A-1+) have strong positions in emerging markets, explained partly by their early entry to those markets and partly by their geographic proximity. European manufacturers also benefit from promising late-stage pipelines for patented drugs.

Standard & Poor’s therefore expects their credit quality to remain stable through 2009, reflecting these strong operating trends, the report says. “Nevertheless, we see a heightened risk that companies could adopt more aggressive financial policies, which could potentially result in negative rating actions.”
