Laboratorios Farmacéuticos ROVI is a fully integrated Spanish speciality pharmaceutical company involved in the development, in-licensing, manufacture and marketing of small molecule and speciality biologic drugs with a particular expertise in low molecular weight heparin (LMWH).

Investment summary

ROVI is a profitable speciality healthcare company that markets ~40 proprietary and in-licensed products across nine core franchises, mainly in its domestic Spanish market. ROVI is at a major inflection point since obtaining market authorisation for its internally developed enoxaparin biosimilar (Becat) in 24 EU countries (ahead of any competition). ROVI has commenced marketing in several European countries and has signed out-licensing agreements that cover 69 countries globally – key drivers for sales and operating growth in the medium term. R&D progress continues with its proprietary ISM technology. Notably, its Risperidone ISM (DORIA), a long-acting injectable for schizophrenia, has recently completed a Phase III study, meeting its pre-specified primary endpoint; NDA fillings can be expected by end-2019.
