Page 10 Recent licensing transactions between Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies Neurocrine/Pfizer( Indipion, an insomnia agent): Pfizer gains exclusive worldwide development and marketing rights in exchange for upfront, milestone and royalty payments Millennium/Ortho Biotech (Velcade, a first-in-class chemotherapeutic agent): Millennium retains all US commercialization rights whereas Ortho will keep rights out side the US. Millennium will receive royalties from Ortho on sales outside the US and received an upfront payment of USD 15 million. Milestone payments for clinical development, regulatory development out side the US and sales milestones are included Avanir Pharmaceuticals/Peregrine Pharmaceuticals (An anticancer antibody): In exchange of license fee, milestone and royalty payements for Avanir’s antibody Contd.
Page 11 Indian Response Increased focus on R&D Increased focus on CRAM services (including biologics) Marketing alliances Brand acquisition Adoption of product patent regime Life Science focused VC funds Development of Life Science Clusters with shared wet lab infrastructure
Page 13 Statistics Domestic market – $1.46 billion in 2005-2006 – Estimated at $5 billion by 2010 India expected to contribute 8% of the world's biotechnology market by 2010. Over 200 biotech companies Total bioscience investment of nearly $150 million USD Significant promise of Growth
Page 20 Research & Development India is positioned to grow into a major R&D center for biotechnology companies on the basis of Low Cost Skilled Workforce
Page 21 Advantage India Growing demand for biotechnology products Rich biodiversity Strong R&D base Wealth of well educated human capital.
Page 22 Base Powerful and inexpensive information base India advantage from a clinical trials standpoint Access to large number of patients Sophisticated network Short patient recruitment times
Page 23 Patent Protection being strengthened Regulations established to approve Genetically modified crops Recombinant therapeutics Guidelines for Stem Research Effective 1 st Jan, 2005 TRIPS agreement expected to increase foreign investment and improve the environment for R&D and forging new global alliances Achievements

Page 26 Characteristics of Life Sciences Cluster A Cluster can be defined as a geographically proximate group of companies and associated institutions in a particular field linked by commonalities and complementarities – Where, value of the system as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts – Are usually seeded and evolve organically – It is observed worldwide that innovation driven companies thrive better in clusters
Page 27 Elements of Life Science Cluster R&D Institutions with strong industry linkages Availability of finance Support Services Companies – vendors, suppliers, law firms, VCs Life Science Parks/ Incubators to nurture SMEs Innovative SMEs, Startups Anchor companies Life Science Cluster Good common infrastructure
Page 28 Leading Life Science Clusters According to Minnesota Biomedical and Bioscience Network report on leading life science clusters as of 2004-05 there are – 12 Life Science Clusters in EU (Germany, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, Finland) – 11 in USA – 14 in Asia-Pacific (including Hyderabad,Bangalore and Uttranchal from India) – 4 in UK and Ireland – 3 in Australia – 3 in Canada – 2 in South America – 1 in Africa – 1 in Middle East
Page 29 Genome Valley Cluster, Hyderabad 600 sq. km in three blocks around Hyderabad designated as Genome Valley for life sciences growth Life Sciences R&D institutions CCMB, IICT, CDFD, NIN, ICRISAT, Univ of Hyderabad etc. Biopharma Companies Shantha Biotechnics, Indian Immunologicals, Bharat Biotech, Biological Evans, Krebs Biochedmicals, Ocimum Biosolutions, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories etc. Contract Research Organisations Vimta labs, Suven Life Sciences, GVK Biosciences, Magene Life Sciences etc. Hospitals, clinicians involved in R&D and clinical research Dedicated biotech fund - APIDC Venture Capital Life Science Parks/ Incubators ICICI Knowledge Park, SP Biotech Park, ICRISAT Agri-park and Incubator, Incubator at Univ. of Hyd.
Page 30 Offerings of Life Science Clusters Generally infrastructure driven shared facility offering innovation driven SMEs and startups the right location and fulfilling some of the other listed needs – Shared infrastructure & admin support lowering overheads – Low capital investment – ready to use infrastructure – Network creation and international knowledge flow – Competitive environment – Facilitating Technology Transfer, fundraising, marketing – Mentoring for incubatees – Knowledge building - introducing/ strengthening codes and conventions through shared learning Can be government driven, private initiative, public-private partnership or university led – Government’s role in removing entry barriers crucial
Page 31 What VC’s Look For Technology backed by defendable IP Business model Valuation/Exits: 5-10x return Cost of development and time lines Competition
Page 32 VC Value Proposition Financing: long-term equity Business Partner: share risk and reward Networks: Access to expertise and alliances Mentoring Exit
Page 33 India biotech investment opportunities driven by its competitive advantages 1.Drug Discovery: Deep knowledge base of traditional medicine to aid in drug discovery. Large Bio diversity of plant / marine / animal to aid in drug discovery / production & nutraceuticals. 2.Clinical trials: Large drug naïve populations for rapid and low cost clinical trials. 3.Services focusing on the huge domestic market: –Huge domestic markets with specific needs that can provide scale advantages to companies addressing these needs: availability of drugs, diagnostic services, healthcare delivery, health insurance, etc. 4.Contract research/ manufacture: –chemistry skills, that can lead to strength in process design, contract manufacturing, laboratory drug discovery related services. 5.Orphan drug discovery & development: Low cost skilled labor with easy availability provides the ability to build contract manufacturing and services businesses; build drug discovery businesses focused on orphan drugs, etc. 6.Bioinfomatics services : strong IT skills to aid in developing IP in a number of the services areas that Indian companies are involved in. 7.Stem cell / GM crops: Enabling policies that help development in Stem cell/ banking research, GM crops, etc.
Page 35 Technology Transfer Licenses Potential Licensees/Licensors –Small company that lacks the facilities to do basic research of its own and wishes to buy the products of others’ research –Larger research based-based company which wishes to expand its product line or investigate new areas of research
