About Glenmark Life Sciences Limited
Glenmark Life Sciences Limited (“GLS”) is a Rs. 2,000 Cr developer and manufacturer of select active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) in chronic therapeutic areas. It is a subsidiary of Glenmark Pharmaceuticals.
Predominantly it manufactures cardiovascular disease (“CVS”), central nervous system disease (“CNS”), pain management, and diabetes. Almost 45% comes from the CVS segment.
The API portfolio comprises specialized and profitable products, including niche and technically complex molecules, which reflects their capability to branch into other high-value products. Glenmark Life Sciences has a strong market share in select specialized APIs such as Telmisartan (anti-hypertensive), Atovaquone (anti-parasitic), Perindopril (anti-hypertensive), Teneligliptin (diabetes), Zonisamide (CNS), and Adapalene (dermatology). Almost 45% of total sales come from products with more than 20% market share. This ensures a higher margin from economies of scale and a relatively high barrier to entry from the competition.
They are also increasingly providing contract development and manufacturing operations (“CDMO”) services to a range of multinational and specialty pharmaceutical companies. Currently contributes 8% of total sales.
Financials of Glenmark Life Sciences Ltd:
Glenmark Life Sciences has sales of Rs. 1,885 Cr and net profit of Rs. 354 Cr. Since it was recently demerged from the parent company into a wholly-owned subsidiary, the company did not report a long-term track record of only the API segment.
If we compare with all predominantly API companies, Glenmark Life Sciences size is in the middle range with API business earning above-average operating margin. We believe the tall ask for Price/Sales is in line with better profitability. We believe that part of the profitability is sustainable as 45% of the sales come from API with a high market share, giving it economies of scale to sustain and fight competition.

- Profitable track record from large scale and first movers in select drugs
- A high market share in few drugs can maintain profitability.
- If USFDA finds out any violations in the manufacturing process, it can have an impact on sales till it resolves all the concerns
- While a high market share in few drugs is sticky, the rest of the drugs can face huge competition as API are inherently commoditized with no barrier to entry.
How is the business model? Great, Good, or Gruesome?
Good. Manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in India, either ingredients or formulations is a very profitable business model. A few of the reasons for bright future prospects are low cost of operations, limited regulations with respect to environmental and large addressable market like US and other developed markets where drugs go off-patent inviting competition from generics drugs.
Glenmark Life Sciences has a large share of revenue coming in from few key therapies like CVS and CNS. It has managed to maintain a high market share in the same. Since one or two large manufacturers exist in a particular API, a new competition will be reluctant to enter as they won’t be able to compete with incumbents’ scale of operations and lower cost.
