Governments throughout the world heavily regulate the marketing of our products. Most countries also place restrictions on the manner and scope of permissible marketing to physicians and to other health care professionals.
In addition, if we fail to comply fully with such regulations, then civil or criminal actions could be brought against us. In addition to normal price competition in the marketplace, the prices of our pharmaceutical products are restricted by price controls imposed by governments and health care providers in several countries.
Price controls operate differently in different countries and can cause wide variations in prices between markets.
Currency fluctuations can aggravate these differences. The existence of price controls can limit the revenues we earn from our products. Such reassessments could result in the amendment or withdrawal of existing approvals to market our products, which in turn could result in a loss of revenue, and could serve as an inducement to bring lawsuits against us.
If we are sued by consumers for defects in our products, it could harm our reputation and thus our profits. From time to time, the pharmaceutical industry has experienced difficulty in obtaining desired amounts of product liability insurance coverage.
We export products to the United States, a market noted for its litigious nature and high awards of damages. Although we have obtained product liability coverage with respect to products that we manufacture, if any product liability claim not covered by insurance or exceeding the policy limits were sustained against us, it could harm our business and financial condition.
This risk is likely to increase as we develop our own new-patented products in addition to making generic versions of drugs that have been in the market for some time.
