Company Analysis: UCB

The publisher explores UCB’s prescription pharmaceutical performance and outlook over 2019-29.


  • Overview - UCB will experience impressive growth of its core portfolio of CNS and I&I products through 2021, but patent expiries will cause growth to slow over the long term.
  • Key themes - [1] UCB will see solid near-term revenue growth due to its strong immunology and neurology assets [2] UCB saw several positive readouts from the Phase III program for bimekizumab in late 2019 that bode well for future uptake of the product [3] Growth from pipeline products - bimekizumab, zilucoplan, and rozanolixizumab - and recently launched Nayzilam and Evenity will see UCB increase revenues over the forecast period [4] UCB has several sizable brands with upcoming loss of exclusivity: Vimpat in 2022, Cimzia in 2024, and Briviact in 2026.
