Aligning Financial Management Systems to the Biotech Lifecycle: From Pre-Commercial to High Growth

Life Science companies have increasingly complex businesses, and with this comes increasingly complex finances. Dynamic business drivers such as partnerships and alliances, joint ventures, and innovative R&D funding frameworks all combine to bring a new level of complexity to operations that directly impacts financial planning, reporting and compliance. Companies at all stages of the growth lifecycle in life sciences – from pre-commercial to established market contenders – are all seeking ways to mature their financial management processes. In this session featuring KPMG finance professionals, hear from experts on a range of topics:

  • A framework designed for pre-commercial companies to enhance financial planning and budgeting, drawing in aspects of biopharma businesses such as grants, R&D expenses, employee costs, and G&A to produce an Excel-based workbook that supports enhanced reporting, analysis, and strategic planning.
  • Discussion of how more mature life sciences companies are using digital technologies – including SAP S/4HANA – to transform the way they integrate operations and financial management to achieve new levels of business efficiency. The discussion will highlight case studies employing a leading practice target operating model designed specifically for high growth life sciences companies.
