Likely Democrat Senate Control Ups Potential for New Drug Policies, but Major Changes Look Unlikely

Damien Conover, CFA Sector Director

Analyst Note

| Damien Conover, CFA |

With the Democrats being very close to winning the remaining two Senate seats in the Georgia runoffs, we expect the Biden administration will seek to implement further healthcare reforms. However, with such a slim possible majority in the Senate, we expect significant compromises that will likely lead to watered-down drug policy changes. We continue to view the biopharma group as undervalued with strong underlying fundamentals, but we expect lingering concern about drug policy changes to weigh on the industry's valuations.

Company Profile

Business Description

Sanofi develops and markets drugs with a concentration in oncology, immunology, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and vaccines. However, the company's decision in late 2019 to pull back from the cardio-metabolic area will likely reduce the firm's footprint in this large therapeutic area. The company offers a diverse array of drugs with its highest revenue generator, Lantus, representing just under 10% of total sales. About 30% of total revenue comes from the United States and 25% from Europe. Emerging markets represent the majority of the remainder of revenue.
