Progressing at cruising speed
02 Jun 16
Following a $100m private placement, Bavarian Nordic is ready to push its pipeline forward and create long-term value. Smallpox vaccine Imvamune is being stockpiled by the US and Canadian governments and Prostvac is advancing towards top-line Phase III data in 2017. The MVA-BN RSV vaccine is progressing towards mid-stage studies, while Phase II trials of CV-301 and Prostvac in combination with checkpoint inhibitors will start by mid-year. Our updated valuation of DKK13.4bn includes RSV and the latest bulk Imvamune order.
Private placement trumps IPO
26 Apr 16
The current weak US IPO conditions have resulted in a slight change of plan for Bavarian Nordic. It recently shelved its US listing plans and instead completed a private share placement, which raised c $100m vs. the expected $86m in the F-1 filing. New funds will be used for the same purposes as the IPO, namely advancing the development of CV-301, MVABN RSV and for capex. Prostvac has passed its first interim analysis and the Phase III trial will continue without modification.
Seeking a cash injection from the US
17 Feb 16
Bavarian Nordic’s intention to list on NASDAQ is a strategic move to broaden its appeal to US investors and raise additional funds to accelerate clinical development of multi-tumor cancer immunotherapy CV-301 and respiratory syncytial virus vaccine MVA-BN RSV and to expand its manufacturing capacity. As a well-funded revenue generating company, it should still appeal to investors despite market headwinds. While pricing is to be determined, the likely timing of the proposed IPO represents an attractive entry point for US investors ahead of a newsflow-rich 2016.
Advancing the pipeline with start of RSV trial
21 Aug 15
Bavarian Nordic has now commenced the planned Phase I study of MVABN RSV. Advancing the earlier-stage pipeline is one of Bavarian Nordic’s key priorities, hence this represents an important step. RSV could be a significant opportunity, particularly in adults, and we expect Bavarian to consider partnering, albeit not until at least Phase II. Our valuation, which does not yet include RSV owing to its early stage of development, is largely unchanged at DKK12.6bn.

Elderstreet stake acquired 02 GENERAL NEWS Globalworth premium In this issue Venture capital firm Draper Esprit has taken a 30.8% stake in venture capital trust manager Elderstreet. Both investment managers focus on the technology sector and they will be able to co-invest. Elderstreet has investments in a number of AIM-quoted companies through its VCTs. The purchase was funded by an issue of Draper Esprit shares worth just over £250,000. Simon Cook, the chief executive of Draper Esprit, is a former partner at Elderstreet so he knows the business and the people who run it, although he did leave more than 14 years ago. Cook has previously acquired portfolios from 3i and Cazenove, two other firms where he has worked. Draper Esprit has an option to acquire the remaining shares in Elderstreet, which has more than £25m under management. Adding Elderstreet to the group enables Draper Esprit to offer investors a range of EIS funds, VCTs and an ISA qualifying listed evergreen patient capital fund. The enlarged group has venture capital assets under management of more than £350m. At the end of September 2016, Draper Esprit had a net asset value of 352p a share, which is similar to the current share price. The June 2016 flotation price was 300p a share. Draper Esprit is quoted on Ireland’s Enterprise Securities Market as well as AIM.

RTHM is acquiring a profitable Canadian listed mobile specialist for equivalent of US$42.5m consideration in shares (88.235m). This helps adds to two growth vectors RTHM is targeting; (i) adds unique exclusive audience (10m unique) and (ii) Exclusive demand Yahoo and Facebook. The business has 15 premium and owned and operated apps which provide users with rewards for activity. The business is expected to deliver c$9m of EBITDA in FY18 including $2m of cost synergies. This equates to just 4.7x EV/EBITDA. This marks what we see the first step in RTHM activity to scale the business and deliver on margin potential (see our initiation notes). Our initial estimates for EPS revisions are very significant - for FY18 are 2.3 cents (currently 0.6) and for FY19 4.3 (currently 2.5). There is a call at 830 for investors and we will revise post this.
Exponential growth now in sight

The best things in life are worth waiting for, or at least that seems to be the case with Kromek, a pioneering radiation detection expert. Since listing on AIM at 51p back in October 2013, the company has not only been busily refining and field testing its next generation CZT (cadmium zinc telluride) technology, but importantly also securing a raft of new orders.

This morning’s AGM Statement confirms that trading in the first four months of the year to 31st October was in line with expectations. Revenue was slightly above the prior year period and cash collection has remained strong. The Group has reiterated its commitment to maintaining a progressive dividend policy. The statement is encouraging and we therefore leave our forecasts unchanged. We note the attractions of a 5% dividend yield and consider the shares inexpensive at 4.5x FY’17 EV/EBITDA.

With FY16 volume and revenue already disclosed in the pre-close, the focus in today’s prelims is on PBT (£100.3m versus our £101m) and EPS (96.8p versus our 95.4p). No special dividend triggered this year (none forecast) and DPS is held at 46.8p (N1SE: 48.0p). On end markets, recent commentary is reiterated – the core business is growing, whilst consumer electronics will be subdued in the current year (competitive capacity from Solvay). On currency, there will be a material benefit in the current year (a little more than the £14m to £15m previously indicated), and a further tailwind next year if current rates are maintained (quantum TBC). There is also an investment of £10m today in a minority interest in Magma Global, Victrex’ oil and gas mega programme partner. Although the share price is now close to our TP of 1730p, we feel that there is enough in today’s announcement to retain a positive stance on medium term opportunities with strong cashflow and a special dividend potentially to look forward to in the current year.
