McKinsey Case Interview

OldPharma wants to jumpstart its biologicals program by acquiring BioFuture
OldPharma is interested in entering a new, rapidly growing segment of drugs called
biologicals.
OldPharma has a long, successful tradition in researching, developing, and selling small
molecule drugs.
QUESTION 1: What factors should the
team consider when evaluating
whether OldPharma should acquire
BioFuture?
Case Warm-Up UCC Case Program Recruiting Application
Answer to Opening Question
A good answer would include the following:
Value of BioFutures drug pipeline. Number of drugs currently in development. Quality of drugs
(likelihood of success). Potential revenues and profits.
Biofutures R&D capabilities (future drug pipeline). Scientific talent. Intellectual property (e.g.,
patents, proprietary processes or know-how for biologicals research). Buildings, equipment and
other items that allow Biofutures R&D to operate.
BioFutures marketing or sales capabilities. Especially how promotional messages will be delivered,
e.g., relationships with key opinion leaders that can promote biologicals; Key opinion leaders can
come from the academic arena, like prominent medical school professors, or from the public arena,
like heads of regulatory bodies or prominent telejournalists.
Acquisition price.
A very good answer might also include multiple additional key factors OldPharma should consider. For
example:
BioFutures existing partnerships or other relationships with pharmacos.
OldPharmas capability gaps in biologicals, R&D, sales and marketing, etc.
OldPharmas alternatives to this acquisition. Alternative companies OldPharma could acquire. Other
strategies for entering biological segment, e.g., enter partnerships rather than acquisition. Pursuing
other strategies than entering the biological segment.


There are many possible answers
How will you stand out?

Case Interview
OldPharma believes that the likelihood of success of BioFutures primary
drug candidate can be improved by investing an additional USD 150 million
in a larger Phase II trial. The hope is that this investment would raise the
success rate in Phase II, meaning that more candidate drugs successfully
make it to Phase III and beyond. By how much would the Phase II success
rate need to increase in order for this investment to break even?
The interviewer would tell you to assume that if the drug is successfully
marketed and sold, it would be worth USD 1.2 billion
