AstraZeneca does not look well equipped to deal with the evolving respiratory

Target Estimate Change September 12, 2013 Deep Dive on Respiratory Drives Major Updates To Estimates We have published the results of a 52 US based Pulmonologists survey and detailed inhaled maintenance Respiratory market model today in a separate note entitled: ‚Respiratory Market 2025: Taking A Deep Breath And A Deep Dive‛. As one of the world's leading Respiratory market players (14% of the Global market value in 2012A), much of the dynamics within this market will have material consequences for AstraZeneca. Key conclusions
AstraZeneca should see slowing growth for its respiratory franchise from 2014E as
Symbicort volume is pressured by in-class competitors (Breo for COPD in the US, value
brands and potentially generics ex-US), and new class launches (LABA/ LAMA class). We
expect AstraZeneca to increase the price of Symbicort in the US, following expected
Advair price increases by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK LN, 1,629p, Hold), which should ensure
franchise value growth through to 2016E. Volume pressure in the US and ex-US, and price
pressure ex-US will likely push the franchise into decline from 2016E, with the launch of
Novartis' LABA/ ICS QMF149 further adding to the pressure on the franchise.
We see significant pressure on Symbicort revenues should a substitutable generic of Advair launch in the US by 2017E, compounded by reference pricing pressure from non-substitutable LABA/ ICS generics in Europe from 2014E. Whilst the launch of AstraZeneca's LABA/ LAMA PT003 will provide a new leg to the franchise, this will be a comparatively late entrant to the class in 2016E. Revising our company model to reflect this and other fine tuning, including updated FX, lowers our Group revenue expectations by 0% to 7% and our CORE EPS numbers by 0% to 12% over the forecast period. We have cut our PT for AstraZeneca to 2,850p from 3,200p and reiterate our Hold rating. AstraZeneca expected to be buffeted by external forces and late entry with its
own new products
AstraZeneca has done well to gain significant market share with Symbicort despite its late
market entrance and inferior MDI device in the US (according to surveyed
pulmonologists). Over the mid-term we expect some of the market share for the LABA/
LAMA drug class to come from the LABA/ ICS class in COPD, as suggested by our survey.
We expect AstraZeneca to enter the market with a LABA/ LAMA (PT003) in 2016E,
therefore over the near-term some market share will be lost to GlaxoSmithKline in the US
and ex-US and Novartis (NOVN VX, CHF71.35, Buy) ex-US.

Target Estimate Change September 12, 2013 AstraZeneca has a MABA in Phase II development, for which we expect the ultimate utility to be within a MABA/ ICS fixed dose combination to produce LABA/ LAMA/ ICS triple therapy. In addition, AstraZeneca's Pearl unit has a triple combination product, termed PT010 in development (glycopyrrolate, formoterol fumarate and an ICS, in a MDI device). We expect AstraZeneca to be well positioned to launch a triple-therapy around the same time as GlaxoSmithKline, although we expect GlaxoSmithKline to employ a dry-powder inhaler with once-daily dosing which would be superior to Peal's MDI according to surveyed pulmonologists.

Target Estimate Change September 12, 2013 Late development of new products likely to see Symbicort highly exposed to
competitors in the US
We expect Symbicort volume to be pressured by the introduction of the LABA/ LAMA
class, and the introduction of GlaxoSmithKline's Breo Ellipta (LABA/ ICS) in the US for
COPD. Symbicort is expected to lose 11% of its US COPD LABA/ ICS market share in five
years due to the presence of Breo Ellipta according to surveyed pulmonologists. We
expect GlaxoSmithKline to increase the price of Advair over the next few years to stimulate
switching to Breo Ellipta in the US. We expect AstraZeneca to follow this pricing trend in
the US, helping to offset volume losses. We would expect significant volume pressure for
Symbicort in the US (especially on new patients) once an Advair generic becomes
available in 2017E, in our opinion.

Ex-US franchise similarly exposed, but with softer generic pressures
Underlying demand for AstraZeneca's products outside of the US is expected by us to be
driven by increasing adoption of combination products and COPD/ asthma awareness in
the Emerging Markets. This will likely be offset by increased novel branded products (e.g.
QMF149), value brands (e.g. Flutiform) and generic competition (e.g. Sandoz) ex-US.
AstraZeneca's Symbicort may also come under pressure from some switching from LABA/
ICSs' to Novartis' and GlaxoSmithKline's LABA/ LAMAs' ex-US over the near term.
As with GlaxoSmithKline, we expect significant ex-US value loss for the AstraZeneca inhaled respiratory franchise (key products) due to reference pricing and other price pressure generated by the introduction of value brands and generics.
