China CROs Merge

Sundia MediTech and Shanghai United PharmaTech report that they will be merging. This is a first for China’s young CRO industry, acording to Sundia’s CEO, Wang Xiaochuan, Ph.D. Both Xiaochuan and United PharmaTech’s CEO, Shi Xiongwei, Ph.D., signed a letter of intent agreeing to combine their two companies. Under the terms of the merger, both United PharmaTech and Sundia MediTech will become subsidiaries of Sundia Investment Group, the British Virgin Islands-based holding company that currently owns Sundia MediTech. Dr. Wang will become the new company’s chairman and CEO, while Dr. Shi will hold the positions of director and executive vp. The former senior management teams of both companies will join together into a new, combined management team. Zhang Suyang, a partner of IDG VC, said that he believes China’s drug development CRO industry is beginning to emerge from its initial state into one in which companies will begin to consolidate. “The CRO companies, and the overall size of the CRO industry in China are still relatively small, and there is huge potential for growth, so we can expect that in the following few years there will be many mergers,” explained Zhang. “Companies in this industry will grow quickly and soon; we will see companies of reasonable size and with good governance emerge as corporations with serious long-term potential.” Part of the reason for the merger, noted Dr. Wang, is that it will combine United PharmaTech’s and Sundia’s technical expertise in different fields....   more»

Covance Advances on its Shanghai Lab

Interestingly, Covance said its increased presence in China was due to the higher level of pharmaceutical activity there. Usually, companies invest in China because of some combination of low costs or interest in the country’s growing market for drugs. Because China is expected to be the fifth largest market in the world by 2010 – just three years away – Covance felt the need to be a part of this vital area of pharmaceutical enterprise, to be close to the action. Covance is a $4.5 billion contract research organization with revenues of $1.5 billion annually. During the last week, we noted that big pharma was choosing to build new facilities in China rather than India (see story). Then Novartis (NVS), which just last year announced its intention to make major investments in both countries, reneged on its commitment to India (see story). The cause underlying both stories was poor patent protection in India. For Novartis, the decision was made after the company lost a patent infringement suit against a generic version of leukemia drug Gleevec. Also in the news last week, Beijing Med-Pharm (BJGP) raised $31 million that will allow the company to continue its acquisitive ways (see story), China Shenghuo (KUN) reported much improved Q2 results (see story), Optimer Pharma (OPTR) entered talks with C&O Pharma (of Taiwan, Hong Kong and China) to discuss future collaborations (see story), and China decided to allow its citizens the right to invest in Hong Kong-listed stocks (see story). The change may have the effect of making Hong Kong a more-preferred exchange for biomedical enterprises that are planning their IPOs....   more»
