Biotech Breakthrough: Turning Loss of Market Share into 250% Revenue Growth and Global Expansion in 60 Days

Here's What We Do Better

Our client is a leading biotechnology company based in Denmark specializing in the development and manufacturing of innovative therapeutic treatments. With a strong focus on research and development, the company has a diverse product portfolio targeting various diseases and conditions. However, the company was struggling with a loss of market share due to increased competition and new market entrants.
The client faced several challenges, including:
  1. Loss of market share to competitors
  2. Difficulty expanding into new international markets
  3. High production and operational costs
To help our client overcome these challenges and achieve their business goals, we implemented multiple countertrade mechanisms:
Solution #1

Counter-Purchase: We facilitated agreements with healthcare institutions and pharmaceutical companies in new markets, ensuring that they would purchase our client’s products in exchange for their own products and services.

Solution #2

Direct and Indirect Offsets: We helped our client establish offset agreements with suppliers and partners in various countries, leading to investments in local research and development initiatives and reduced production costs.

Solution #3

Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): Our client entered into BOT agreements to build research and manufacturing facilities in strategic locations. This enabled them to transfer operations to local partners after a specified period, reducing costs and increasing market access.

Solution #4

Joint Ventures (JVs): We helped our client form JVs with local biotechnology companies in target markets, sharing resources and expertise to develop new products and expand market presence.

Solution #5

Industrial Compensation (Buyback and Off-take): Our client agreed to purchase a percentage of their partners’ output in exchange for the partners’ commitment to buy our client’s products.

The implementation of these countertrade mechanisms involved the following steps:
  1. Identifying target markets and potential partners
  2. Negotiating and finalizing agreements with partners and suppliers
  3. Coordinating the construction and operations of facilities in new markets
  4. Establishing joint research and development initiatives with local companies
  5. Monitoring and adjusting agreements as needed to optimize results
Our client experienced significant improvements in their business performance:
  1. Increased revenue by 250% within 60 days
  2. Expanded market presence to over 100 countries
  3. Reduced production and operational costs by 50%
  4. Attracted top talent from around the world
  5. Improved investor confidence and attracted new investment opportunities
  6. Established a stronger competitive advantage in the global biotechnology industry
Through the strategic use of multiple countertrade mechanisms, we successfully helped our client transform their business by increasing market share, expanding into new markets, and improving overall profitability. Our tailored approach to implementing these mechanisms allowed our client to achieve rapid growth, enhance their brand reputation, and secure long-term sustainability in the highly competitive biotechnology industry.
