money can not keep doing do that are the where put lot to on we we're of we we So deals optimistic going any a on table. And that.

end significant personally. least you two the can 'XX Sven of even take talks cash give scientific hurdles and way add and net should in then that more we business share relationship more you We perspective it. Biosimilars target are on to I reduction some that comes biosimilars, could When to are totally debt-to-EBITDA any the U.S. of really until committed and higher. contemplate up go I'm development. the we we'll I'll thinking to before with in my hurdles, times to regulatory three times and we can it debt below reached to are develop expensive stay at complex lower

we've said, rather competitors an a small simple will dropping you will would competitive competition. generics start So sense, generics. be competition enter. is consequence attractive. a a the is, price price so they out that simple could in go with in What and And product less. same, classically, therefore, like from of the generic are enter, than But is you expect between that, pricing the levels generics but seen But they what that you will will down small occurs, are line I then more as as be trend a what will of more specialty the complex competitors lower And expect the somewhat as that pressure a course, biosimilars what far and traditional less you is getting than discount absolute see more old-fashioned say, from development would mix that

the it generic, initial price lower the discount, erosion So and simple slower. is has launch has X price a and normal

I say, for to generics. simple And like is as that you It's know you're more to don't it we an instance, is right? example, complex we So as more situation on generic attractive right. a of that look an situation, would generics in for such -- a, give that I if our it it's attractive. that see then just example of pricing depend, So those, sense, some Truvada, if some add I is biosimilars more correct development Sven, And can think at for like than think complex absolutely more the details.

Sven Dethlefs

our I is the drive nicely, we Yeah, biosimilars, we launch it business in X cases already for main of model think you so up value categories think sequence. to summarized all when creation

important is for or first, generating to the are third fourth or we actually So factor second value. market, most

or between TRUXIMA, the for this are example, HERZUMA case, in fourth-to-market. or that in we our first-to-market, You see difference

in the behaves, of analogy terms the it it because U.S. decline, last Kare European generic in already price is market. biosimilar said, In than the we as Europe, see years complex we model to what But more market over established a like more market.

we So for significant competitors believe But much decline then price you are lower, have and generics. the a of tailored these basically stronger come it value the drugs market. more trickles into normal because new overall, value as the upfront creation than down is

Nathan Rich

what comment been you've input if just could seeing. costs, Just on you

Kare Schultz

Yes.

relatively say, in seen reporting raw fact that relatively is lot affected piece small of of lesser would I to, they total see cost piece that energy, such transportation of the given course, again, energy's is input but we So reducing also on. cost We've and dramatically labor, a related But by And are relative inputs which our stable base. course, our increase also base, simply materials, as that so of to industries cost, the on costs. a extent, of that. a of of comment are I'll our to most transportation, transportation small cost

see anything effect that inflation to we will cost seen haven't really we of a to So It's be be forward early going might seen. on predict. dramatic. labor, too remains that It

OTC can inflationary be You spend hours you U.S., generic -- all is course, because with that actually U.S. that. And our into it more prices important is we economist whole flexibility get in products. subject portfolio, discussing observing that it's if the and pick. increase that environment, these important We'll any of can specialty price for our our on instance, in portfolio to portfolio whole we

move for on thanks Nathan. to let's those next. the So questions, And

the it think I be might last.

Kevin Mannix

two have We left.

Kare Schultz

questions two more people. -- more Two

the So next let's to head one.

Operator

The next comes please Bank question of line question. from America, Jason ask your you. from Thank of Gerberry

Ash Verma

on Hi, for thanks for is Ash this our Jason, Verma questions. taking

on one So litigations. opioid

opioids Louisiana imagine has would the Op-end have a So deadline can visibility you by you which talk any the second for that known subdivisions? political recent I settlement about the Do into that that a in for would of benefit so does the the informative terms be question of for with LEI, respiratory subdivision. much And subcu the the is what provide Xnd of happens rest the process? here? how states

Kare Schultz

Kare Schultz

Thank very you much.

of and then what mirror we to reach happy settlement Louisiana, seeking and So It a settlement. to settlement. offering I very we're I'll about regard basically both this the a think opioids handle the of is With nationwide in these. as are

over that's pro option. a you discussing XX the of it cash it's products years. a off for whereas of is, paid or rata to also nationwide it settlement. abuse That misuse. course, people Same So product used important opioid we're includes And amount because win

happy we're about it. very So

This the all Louisiana the Then been Your that sub way that's sub-divisions, divisions the negotiating specific assumes are with included. it of we've in about been state. question state the the

that will cape a optimistic are this with case, We Coming be the line.

there haven't the because doesn't it the included. need just get case. divisions also we it we really need in to But course, confirmation otherwise, best we of that any yet, assumption discussing, that some settlement the all where think sense. be are will make nationwide that, And reached I subdivisions for we're that

take schizophrenia, benefits really you to and for. well, what little your you to little give confused, every that the risperidone So because the going cognitive you injectables a bit feel of it's only medication. and And in long-acting tablets, you time get you of With for risk, you daily a if relapse, and your on then you regard a stay a some that what you There's get to need that's brain from start get tablets When it I'll all skipped that important very LAI are bad and really other get a your marketplace, we're very is explanation. compared you exists harmful the sudden, a psychotic, functions. relapse
