NUVIGIL is a single-isomer formulation of modafinil. In 2007, the company received final FDA approval to market NUVIGIL for the treatment of excessive sleepiness associated with narcolepsy, OSA/HS, and SWSD. The product covers a polymorphic form of armodafinil, the active pharmaceutical ingredient in NUVIGIL. The company launched NUVIGIL in 2009. In 2009, the company announced positive results from a Phase IV study of NUVIGIL in obstructive sleep apnea and comorbid major depressive disorder requiring ongoing antidepressant therapy.
The company also has ongoing clinical studies for NUVIGIL focused on adjunctive treatment to atypical anti-psychotics in schizophrenia patients, adjunctive treatment for bi-polar depression and excessive sleepiness associated with traumatic brain injury.
Modafinil, the active ingredient in PROVIGIL, is s wake-promoting agent. Outside of the U.S., modafinil is approved in approximately 30 countries, including France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, and Germany, for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy. In certain of these countries, the company also has approval to market modafinil to treat excessive daytime sleepiness in patients with OSA/HS and/or SWSD.
Narcolepsy: Narcolepsy is a debilitating, lifelong sleep disorder whose symptoms often first arise in late childhood. PROVIGIL is a therapy for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome (OSA/HS): Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), a medical device that blows air through the nasal passage, is the primary treatment for OSA/HS.
Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD): SWSD is defined as a persistent or recurrent pattern of sleep disruption that leads to excessive sleepiness or insomnia due to a mismatch between the natural circadian sleep-wake pattern and the sleep-wake schedule required by a person's environment. SWSD particularly affects those who rotate shifts or work at night, which is contrary to the body's natural circadian rhythms.

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder characterized by seizures that cause sudden, involuntary, time-limited alteration in behavior, including changes in motor activities, autonomic functions, consciousness or sensations, and accompanied by an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. The company has worldwide product rights to GABITRIL, excluding Canada and Latin America, and it markets GABITRIL in the United States, France, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
