The FDA has told Nexstim it may accept a “limited-sized” further trial plus additional analysis of the Phase III (NICHE) study. While this is positive for Nexstim – the FDA did not reject the application – it delays any approval to at least 2019. The new design is unlikely to be confirmed before H117. In our view, the uncertainty decreases the probability of success from 55% to 50%. Including the likely 2016 dilution, this decreases the indicative value from €0.96/share to €0.58/share. Nexstim should be funded until early 2018 on the current arrangements with Bracknor, but will then require further capital.
Sham surprise shows stroke success
25 Apr 16
The partly unblinded Phase III data, stopped after a futility analysis, show that two-thirds of treated patients showed meaningful clinical improvements, but also that the ‘active’ sham patients had similar responses. Nexstim will unblind the study, giving 138+ patients worth of data in Q2. The company aims to file an FDA de novo 510(k) application in Q316, which might give some US sales from mid-2017 if the FDA agrees. The system can already be sold in the EU. Extra trials to secure reimbursement are likely to be needed and indications such as depression could be developed. Nexstim has cash to last until Q316. The CEO left on 20 April; the chairman is acting as CEO.
NICHE stroke rehab trial fails its primary endpoint
01 Mar 16
The pivotal trial of Nexstim’s Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT) System in treating stroke patients has failed to meet its primary endpoint. We suspend our financial forecasts and valuation while Nexstim reviews its next strategic steps. It estimates its cash reach until Q316.
First hurdle cleared in pivotal trial
01 Oct 15
An independent committee’s interim analysis of the pivotal trial using Nexstim’s Navigated Brain Therapy System in the treatment of hemiplegic stroke patients recommended that it continue. A positive readout of the full trial in Q316 may enable a US launch in late 2017. We expect the NBT System to gradually capture a third of the €1.6bn market opportunity and we continue to value Nexstim at €112m based on a 70% probability of success.
Game-changing stroke treatment
10 Sep 15
Nexstim’s Navigated Brain Therapy System could transform the rehabilitation of hemiplegic stroke patients. Success in the ongoing Phase III trial may enable a US launch in late 2017. We expect the NBT system to gradually capture a third of the €1.6bn market opportunity and value Nexstim at €112m based on a 70% probability of success.

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.

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.
