Laboratorios Farmacéuticos ROVI is a fully integrated Spanish speciality pharmaceutical company involved in the development, in-licensing, manufacture and marketing of small molecule and speciality biologic drugs with a particular expertise in low molecular weight heparin (LMWH).

Investment summary

ROVI, a profitable, speciality healthcare company, markets ~40 proprietary and in-licensed products across nine core franchises, mainly in its domestic Spanish market. ROVI is at a major inflection point since obtaining market authorisation for its internally developed enoxaparin biosimilar in 21 European countries (ahead of any competition). During 2018, ROVI commenced marketing in several European countries and has signed out-licensing agreements that cover 63 countries globally – key drivers for sales and operating growth in the medium term. R&D progress continues with its proprietary ISM technology, notably with Risperidone ISM or DORIA, a long-acting injectable for schizophrenia which has recently reported positive Top-line Phase III data.
