Topics of discussion include:
  • What effect are the increasing powers of pharmacy benefit managers, health insurers and retail chains having on the pharma industry?
  • How much has the ‘price gouging’ uproar among politicians and the public hurt pharma companies, and how can they rebound?
  • In such a tumultuous time, how can the industry keep ahead when it comes to R&D? Should they keep spending or focus on acquisitions of smaller drug developers?
  • Are inversions dead? What other options are there for pharma companies looking to do transformative, cost-saving acquisitions?
  • Is the financing market still receptive for pharma takeovers, even in high-yield?
