NOVARTIS PHARMACEUTICALS CORPORATION

As the US pharmaceuticals unit of Swiss drug giant Novartis AG, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC) helps with the development, manufacturing, marketing, and sales of its parent company's products in the US. Its product lines address a range of ailments including cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, central nervous system disorders, cancers, bone and skin conditions, infectious diseases, and organ transplant complications. NPC's key products include tumor growth inhibitor Gleevec, high blood pressure drug Diovan, and attention deficit disorder therapies Focalin and Ritalin. NPC markets its products through an in-house sales team.

Geographic Reach

Most of NPC's preclinical research efforts are conducted through US-based affiliate Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR), while clinical-stage development programs are conducted at Novartis sites around the globe.

Operations

NPC represents the best of both worlds for parent Novartis AG: It is part of the global Novartis Pharmaceuticals division, which accounts for some 50% of annual revenues, and it is also a major player in the US market, which is Novartis' largest geographic segment accounting for about a third of sales.

Strategy

The company widens its offerings in the US market through a number of methods including internal research programs, licensing agreements, and acquisitions.
