Investment summary

HCM has built a substantial pipeline of potential first-in-class or best-in-class tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) drugs, some of which are in development with strategic partners. HCM have submitted a new drug application (partnered with Eli Lilly) for fruquintinib in CRC to the China FDA (full Phase III CRC data [China] was presented at ASCO 2017), marking a major milestone in the company's life. Separately in collaboration with AstraZeneca, HCM have initated SAVOIR, a global Phase III trial of savolitinib in PRCC. PBT excludes the earnings contributions from JVs, which in 2016 reported at $66.2m (as equity in investees, net of tax).

Industry outlook

HCM’s profitable Chinese healthcare business continues to benefit from the fast-growing domestic market, while the clinical, regulatory and technological environments are highly conducive to novel drug development. In the longer term, if the oncology and immunology pipeline comes to fruition, HCM has the potential to become a global oncology and immunology player.
