Financed to inflection points
14 Nov 16
The recent completion of the €13.6m capital raise and the soon to be issued convertible bond of presumably €2.5m will enable Mologen, alongside its latest reported cash of €10.2m (at 30 September 2016), to reach key inflection points in the coming year. Analysis of its Phase II (IMPULSE) small cell lung cancer (SCLC) trial should begin by year end, with initial data expected to be presented in H117. Final data from the Phase I HIV study will be presented in mid-2017, while the ongoing Phase III trial (IMPALA) in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is expected to complete patient enrolment by Q117. We value Mologen at €261m or €7.67/share.
'Next Level' of development
21 Jul 16
Mologen’s strategic review has focused its efforts on the development and commercialisation of late and early clinical assets, notably lead candidate lefitolimod (oncology and HIV) and EnanDIM, a next-generation TLR9 agonist. Partnering opportunities for lefitolimod are being actively sought; we anticipate Phase III data in 2018. Manufacturing efforts will be out-sourced to achieve suitable scale. MGN1601 (renal cancer vaccine) is on hold. Mologen’s move to a more clinical development-focused company means preclinical R&D assets (MIDGE vector system) will be spun off or divested. We value Mologen at €201m or €8.87/share.
Lefitolimod trials on track
13 Apr 16
Mologen’s pipeline is focused around lead candidate lefitolimod (MGN1703). Patient enrolment for IMPALA, the pivotal Phase III study in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), continues on track and we expect full enrolment by end 2016. Data due in H117 from the IMPULSE Phase II trial in lung cancer could trigger a licensing deal. FY15 net cash of €24.6m should ensure IMPALA patient recruitment by year-end 2016. We have lowered our valuation of Mologen to €337m, or €14.89 per share, on a more protracted market launch timeline across the product portfolio.
MGN1703 remains the focus
14 Dec 15
Mologen is developing novel immunotherapies for use in the post-chemo maintenance setting in cancer and for the treatment of infectious diseases. Lead candidate MGN1703 is in three clinical trials for different indications, including a pivotal Phase III study, IMPALA, in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) with data due in H118. Meanwhile, initial data from the Phase II IMPULSE study in lung cancer in H117 could positively affect partnering or financing options. We value Mologen at €387m, or €17 per share.
MGN1703 leading the way
20 Aug 15
Mologen’s lead product, MGN1703, is currently in three clinical trials for different indications. The €28.3m (gross) proceeds from the rights issue in April 2015 mean Mologen should have sufficient funds to reach full recruitment of IMPALA (Phase III in colorectal cancer) and top-line data from IMPULSE (Phase II in small-cell lung cancer). The IMPULSE data (H216) could have a positive impact on partnering or financing options for MGN1703. We value Mologen at €384m.

N+1 Singer - EKF Diagnostics - Final results & potential buy back
20 Mar 17
FY16 prelims are slightly ahead of our latest expectations, those having been increased materially over the course of H2’16 as the strength of the recovery in trading became apparent. In order to maximise shareholder value, the directors are currently examining a potential break up of the group. This would also involve a delisting from AIM. A buy back offer at 21.5p would therefore be made to those investors that wish to exit now rather than holding their shares for the two years plus it would likely take to achieve a potentially higher realisation value for the businesses.
Good results, but further restructuring complex for investors
20 Mar 17
EKF Diagnostics FY 2016 results are slightly ahead of expectations, with both higher revenue and better EBITDA. Management has also announced plans to split the company into two separate companies, Point of Care and Laboratory Diagnostics, with the prospect of a delisting to manage the process. The primary metric for valuation of the two businesses is different consequently we believe that the separation is likely to generate significant value. However, in anticipation of the volatility likely given the restructuring announced this morning, despite the strength of the results, we reduce our recommendation to HOLD and maintain our 21p target price.
