Investment summary

SymBio is a speciality pharma focused on Asia-Pacific markets, and has in-licensed two orphan blood cancer products. Treakisym i.v. was approved for r/r low grade NHL/MCL in 2010 and in 2016 received approvals in CLL and first-line low grade NHL/MCL; these new approvals saw in-market Treakisym sales increase by 32% in Q1 2018, following 61% growth in 2017 (NHI price basis). In August SymBio initiated a Phase III trial in Japan of Treakisym in r/r diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, while in September it in-licensed liquid formulations for injection that will provide Treakisym with patent protection that extends to 2031. A Phase I trial of oral Treakisym commenced in January. Rigosertib i.v. is in development for r/r higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (HR-MDS) and is in a pivotal Phase III global study which has expanded from 225 to 360 patients in early 2018; SymBio is enrolling patients in Japan and is aiming for potential filing in 2021. SymBio intends to participate in a planned global trial of high-dose oral rigosertib in untreated HR-MDS.

Industry outlook

SymBio is focused on in-licensing niche opportunities in hard-to-treat indications often overlooked by big pharma. An in-house screening process to select additional pipeline candidates for development and commercialisation will be key to driving operating leverage.
