The Group’s business is bolstered by the following:

  • A highly probable portfolio that comprises clinical and pre-clinical stage Radiopharm assets.
  • Broad and robust intellectual property portfolios in the major territories where Radiopharm hopes to conduct its business activities.
  • A world-class management team that has the C-suite executive team recruited from the most influential radiopharmaceutical companies and universities worldwide.
  • Commercially appealing licence arrangements.

The Company also secures R&D resources through its Sponsored Research agreements while the manufacturing process uses widely adopted radioisotopes in the existing supply chain.

Risks associated with business

There are certain risks as well in investing in this Company for Kiwis. Radiopharm relies on continuing operations of the Licence Agreements and failure to comply with the same can have an adverse impact on the business. The Company’s success will depend on the success of the clinical trials that are ongoing to get the regulatory approval for commercialisation.

The Company’s R&D, manufacturing, and the sale of products are subject to different regulations by authorities in the US, Australia, and other countries.

Radiopharm remains dependent on key personnel that are its key assets and can impact the firm if any of them leaves. It may also need to raise additional capital in the future and delay or scale down its operations as there is no assurance of the raise being successful.

Bottom Line

Radiopharm has a good scope ahead amid the growing demand of pharmaceuticals.

The global pharma market is projected to be at a valuation of US$6.7 billion in 2020 with a prediction to almost double to US$11.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 8%.
