The Eli Lilly Intelligence Dossier
From the ashes of recent economic fires, a new leader is rising.

Following one of the worst years ever for the pharmaceutical industry, in which economic downturn was compounded by regulatory crises, the onward march of generics and lagging profits in all but emerging markets, some companies are proving their mettle. Eli Lilly is one of them.

Having sustained a significant, $3.6 billion fourth quarter loss in 2008 resulting from the purchase of ImClone Systems, the pharmaceutical giant needed to claw back ground and re-establish its financial stature. And it’s done just that, posting a fourth quarter 2009 profit of $915 million and an overall revenue increase of 14% for the quarter to $5.90 billion, a result that has exceeded industry expectations.

And 2010 promises to be the start of an even more compelling R&D story. Faced with sceptical analysts who’ve suggested that the company will be unable to recover from generic competition as four of its major brands go off patent between 2011 and 2014, the drug maker took a stand, boldly announcing plans at its annual investor meeting to have 10 compounds in late stage development by 2011, with two new drugs being launched a year starting in 2013. Yet those promises aside, analysts are still left wondering if Eli Lilly can deliver.
