Sandoz too would suffer significantly if one were imposed, noting that the generic manufacturer expected $40 million in sales over six weeks alone.
52 weeks in a year.
6 weeks = $40m
1 week = 40/6 = $6.66M
52 * 6.66 = $346M to start per year
That is an interesting calculation.
It leaves out three data points that help complete the sales picture.
1) Sandoz shipped 5,000,000 units BEFORE the six week period. Those units should be about $250M in sales.
2) Sandoz has guided that it was able at launch to supply 35-40% of the unit market.
3) MNTA presenting at the BAC conference indicated that they had already "penetrated" the market to the limit of their capacity.
