Shire faces RoI test under vision-loving new CEO

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Shire Pharmaceuticals is known for its acquisitive buy-late, maximize-market strategy. Flemming Ornskov, the company's new CEO, plans to continue that approach, firstly by applying it to acquisitions in ophthalmology, an area in which he has specialized. However, with many recent acquisitions yet to mature to revenue-generation, and with big indication areas for Shire like ADHD at risk from generic and branded competition, the pressure is on the new CEO – even before he officially starts work.
