    HDFC Securties on Cipla

    Cipla received approval for gProventil HFA (Albuterol Sulfate), its first MDI (metered dose inhaler) approval in the US. This is the first generic approved by the US FDA for Proventil HFA. The approval comes ahead of time (was expected in 2HFY21) as FDA recognizes the rising demand for albuterol products during coronavirus pandemic. We expect gradual ramp up as shipments are expected to be staggered. We factor sales contribution of USD60mn/70mn sales in FY21/22 respectively. Incrementally, this adds ~5-6% to our EPS estimates. Strong respiratory franchise (gAdvair filing in Q1FY21, Proventil approval), specialty portfolio targeting Institutional space (IV Tramadol, Zemdri) and complex products (40% of projects under development) will drive US growth in the medium term. We revise our target price to Rs 600 (20x FY22 EPS + Rs 30/share for gAdvair). Reiterate Buy.
