Company description

Ipsen is a global specialty-driven pharmaceutical company with total sales exceeding €1.1 billion in 2010. Ipsen’s ambition is to become a leader in specialty healthcare solutions for targeted debilitating diseases. Its development strategy is supported by four franchises: neurology / Dysport®, endocrinology / Somatuline®, uro-oncology / Decapeptyl® and hemophilia. Moreover, the Group has an active policy of partnerships. R&D is focused on innovative and differentiated technological patient-driven platforms, peptides and toxins. In 2010, R&D expenditure totaled more than €220 million, above 20% of Group sales. The Group has total worldwide staff of close to 4,500 employees.

Ipsen started its activities in Ukraine 20 years ago, with the promotion of a group of legacy products, the majority of which were dedicated to the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. A couple of years later, Ipsen introduced its innovative franchise, whose three main therapeutic areas are in oncology, endocrinology, and for the treatment of neuro-muscular disorders. For the moment, the company’s strategic focus is to expand its innovative franchise and to push these medicines forward into the market.

Over the past seven years, the range of strategic products in Ipsen’s Ukraine portfolio has more than doubled. At the beginning of 2004, about 30% of sales came from the innovative franchise, whereas by the end of this year, around 60% of sales is expected to be generated by innovative medicines.

Products and services

In both its targeted therapeutic areas and primary care, Ipsen has a diversified portfolio of leading drugs.

The Group’s product portfolio includes pharmaceutical products marketed around the world to specialists working in its targeted therapeutic areas (oncology, endocrinology, neurology, hematology), which are its primary areas of development. The Group also markets products in other therapeutic areas in which it boasts longstanding expertise (gastroenterology, cardiovascular and cognitive disorders). To a large extent, these are composed of primary care.
