Shire and Baxalta combine to create a global leader in rare diseases
3 June 2016 • Author: Victoria White, Digital Content Producer
Through the combination, Shire expects to deliver double-digit compound annual top-line growth, with over $20 billion in annual projected revenue by 2020 and approximately 65% of total annual revenues being immediately generated by its rare disease products. Shire now has more than 50 programs in clinical development, with a balanced mix of early, mid and late-stage projects.
With over 22,000 employees across more than 100 countries, Shire’s expanded global reach and best-in-class products offer the potential to help even more patients around the world with significant unmet needs.
The number one rare diseases platform
Commenting on the merger, Shire Chief Executive Officer Flemming Ornskov, M.D., M.P.H., said: “Upon the completion of our combination with Baxalta, Shire is now the global leader in rare diseases, with the number one rare diseases platform based on both revenue and pipeline programs. With our multiple high-value franchises, each with best-in-class products and a robust innovative portfolio, we further extend our capabilities for innovation and sustainable growth with patients at the center of everything we do.”
Dr. Ornskov continued, “We have made impressive progress on integration planning since announcing the combination, moving much faster than other transactions of similar size based on benchmarks, to create certainty for our employees and to better serve our patients and customers going forward.”
The combined company is expected to yield annual operating cost synergies of at least $500 million within the first three years post-closing. Further, Shire expects to generate additional revenue synergies and a combined non-GAAP effective tax rate of 16-17% by 2017. The combination is expected to be accretive to non-GAAP diluted EPS in 2017, the first calendar year of ownership, and beyond, with an attractive ROIC that will exceed Shire’s cost of capital in 2020.
