Astellas wished to understand the funding flow and market access potential for their novel treatment Astellas has an asset with a novel mechanism of action compared to currently marketed products including oral route of administration Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 Previous payer research concluded that : • This is a commoditised hospital market • Choice of treatments is currently determined by tenders/contracts • Payers would accept a nominal price premium if clinical evidence is robust 6 Astellas wished to conduct further research to understand the competitive landscape and funding flow in detail The results of this research will optimise Astellas’ market access strategy Confidential

We proposed a hybrid research programme with payers and purchasers as well as CI on competitor companies Discussions with stakeholders at Astellas • Guidelines Competitive intelligence Successful market access • Purchasing decisions • Evaluation process • Commissioning trail • Formulary listing • Funding pathway • Negotiations • Budgets Understand purchasers and formulary committees Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 Understand funding and tender process 10 Confidential
CI was gathered on a range of issues to evaluate the competitive landscape Competitive market Lifecycle management Targeting, messaging Competitor companies Buying process Sales force structure Competitive intelligence Marketing strategy Competitor products Commercial deals Value-added services Discounting Staying one step ahead of your competitors Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 11 Confidential
CI from competitor companies enabled coverage of the competitive market access landscape in EU5 Operational structure • What are the core skills, if any (specific to this market), of the in-field team that we need to be aware of? • N.B the marketing organisations may differ by country Sales strategy • Who are they targeting and why? • How important is the product to them? • How does the product fit into their franchise strategy, or complimentary to another brand in the portfolio Messaging • Clinical advocacy and patient positioning • Is there any evidence of repositioning by competitors on the back of prescribing trends? Buying process • What is the buying process in each country / region within a country? • Are there any opportunities/threats for Astellas in each country? Range of services offered by each competitor (including homecare where relevant) • Understand competitor COGs and level of resources invested by the target company • Identify features of winning tenders by country • Where Astellas and its affiliates need to focus resources to compete in the target market Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 12 Confidential
A hybrid approach using CI and market access research helped to identify issues around funding/tenders Competitive intelligence: Potential barriers, and means of addressing them; recommendations to optimise advanced launch preparation Allow us to understand the other side of the story; how leading companies are promoting their products Approach competitor sources to gain insight into key success factors for market access 1 2 3 4 Strategies and tactics for winning tenders 5 All intelligence will be triangulated to enhance reliability Payer and purchaser research will provide insights into: Explore key features of deal structures that win tenders Buying (tenders and contracts) process for each country 1 2 3 Potential access barriers, and means of addressing them; recommendations to optimise selling process Map out key dates and requirements for tenders/contracts Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 4 13 Confidential

Competitor companies have adapted differently to local pressures in EU5 Significant intelligence was obtained within the organisation by interviewing ex-employees; more than we had initially expected • CI already exists in a company Payers provided an idea of what price the product can expect in the market and level of premium. CI provided detailed information on competitor strategies, discounts, sales force structure etc. Payers provided information about funding pathways and tender systems, whereas CI gave insight as to how competitors had organised themselves to access different pathways Strategy depends on the buying process in each country. For example: • UK: 1 person manages tender process nationally • France, Italy, Spain, Germany: Account teams target hospital decision makers and/or regional and national health authorities • Italy: District Managers target physicians and influence regional centres to help secure tenders Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 16 Confidential
The two streams of research provided complimentary insights Target group Objective • Market access Competitive intelligence Payers and purchasers Stakeholders and influencers Copyright Lifescience Dynamics Ltd 2014 • • • Insights Evaluate product characteristics Focus on what payers think about the product and how it can gain access Determine opinions and market access trends Understand the competitive market Focus on competitors and their positioning Gain predictive view of the market 17 Confidential
