Indivior Expects Double-digit Percentage Net Revenue CAGR Over Medium-term

Indivior Plc. (INDV.L) expects to achieve double-digit percentage net revenue compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the medium-term. The company reiterated its 2022 guidance.

The company said it will hold a Capital Markets Day Wednesday in New York City. The event will be hosted by Mark Crossley, Chief Executive Officer, along with members of the Indivior executive leadership team and will detail the company’s strategic growth plans and roadmap for delivering long-term shareholder value.

Indivior expects SUBLOCADE (buprenorphine extended-release) injection to achieve a net revenue run rate of $1 billion by the end of 2025. It now expects to deliver SUBLOCADE peak potential net revenue of more than $1.5 billion.

Indivior expects to achieve a double-digit percentage net revenue CAGR over the medium-term, driven primarily by SUBLOCADE in the United States and growing net revenue contribution from PERSERIS (risperidone for extended-release injection).

Indivior expects to achieve significant operating margin expansion over the medium-term driven by an improving gross margin and focused management of operating expenses.

At its Extraordinary General Meeting in September of this year, Indivior received strong support from its shareholders for an additional share listing in the United States. It has chosen NASDAQ as its U.S. trading venue, the company said. The listing on NASDAQ is targeted for the Spring of 2023.

Oil Prices Extend Losses On Recession Worries

Oil prices fell further on Wednesday, after having tumbled to an 11-month low in the previous session on concerns about the outlook for energy demand.

Benchmark Brent crude futures fell nearly 2 percent to $77.82 a barrel, while WTI crude futures were down 1.8 percent at $72.90.

Recession worries gripped financial markets after top U.S. banks warned of a recession in 2023 and China reported weak trade balance figures for November.

Chinese shipments registered an annual decrease of 8.7 percent in November, data from the General Administration of Customs revealed.

Economists had expected a moderate 3.6 percent drop in exports after a 0.3 percent easing in October. This was the second consecutive fall and also the largest since early 2020.

Likewise, imports to China decreased the most since the middle of 2020 – stirring fresh worries about fuel demand in the world’s second-largest economy.

Imports fell 10.6 percent annually, bigger than the expected 5.0 percent fall and October’s 0.7 percent decrease.

Meanwhile, investors ignored industry data showing that crude oil inventories dropped for the fourth week in a row last week.

The American Petroleum Institute estimated a drawdown in U.S. crude stockpiles of around 6.4 million barrels, suggesting demand remained strong in the world’s largest consumer.

The official numbers from the Energy Information Administration are due later in the session.
