Basilea continues to make good partnering progress with key assets Cresemba for mould infections and Zevtera for bacterial infections. Both drugs will be developed and marketed across Latin America by Grupo Biotoscana (GBT), while Cresemba will be developed and marketed by Asahi Kasei Pharma in Japan. Basilea will receive a total upfront of CHF18m (to be treated as deferred revenue over a number of years), plus additional payments on reaching regulatory and commercialisation milestones (up to CHF60m from Asahi plus royalties, undisclosed amounts from GBT). We value Basilea at CHF1,091m.
Moving on up
30 Aug 16
Basilea has made a solid start to the first half of 2016, with anti-microbial agents Cresemba and Zevtera continuing their respective European roll-outs. Ongoing dialogue with the FDA on the SPA protocol for Zevtera’s Phase III US clinical trial programme means US trials should initiate in H117. Together, these underpin the current valuation with upside potential from further partnering deals for Cresemba, Zevtera and the early-stage oncology pipeline, which in itself is making progress, albeit at an early stage. We value Basilea at CHF1,091m or CHF101/share.
Zevtera US development full steam ahead
22 Apr 16
Basilea has announced that BARDA, a division of the US Department of Health & Human Services Office, has awarded a contract of up to $100m for the Phase III development of antibacterial agent ceftobiprole (Zevtera) for the US market. Critically, this means that the Phase III trials in skin and bacteraemia (blood) infections could start as soon as late 2016/early 2017 once the company has agreed the Phase III study Special Protocol Assessments (SPAs) with the FDA. The BARDA contract now removes the uncertainty in timing for the Phase III clinical trial programme that would support Zevtera’s US regulatory filing. We value Basilea at CHF1,114m or CHF103.2/share.
Riding the crest of the novel antimicrobial wave
23 Mar 16
Basilea is one of the few standalone European companies focused on developing novel antimicrobial drugs. It has two approved hospital-based products: Cresemba for severe mold infections and Zevtera for bacterial infections. Together these underpin the current valuation with upside potential from a US partnering deal for Zevtera and the early-stage oncology pipeline. A US Zevtera deal and potential sales progression for the antimicrobial portfolio are key near-term share price drivers. We value Basilea at CHF1,114.0m or CHF103.2/share.

Sanderson has delivered full year results in line with expectations and the 19 October trading update after a strong finish to the year compensated for a slower start. A healthy level of pre-contracted recurring revenue (50%), incremental sales to existing customers and new customer wins at higher average order values helped deliver solid revenue growth in both the Digital Retail (+9%) and Enterprise (+12%) divisions. A decent order book and good sales momentum suggest that the company is on track to deliver on unchanged profit expectations for the current year. We continue to view the valuation (FY17 EV/EBITDA 8.6x) as undemanding given an attractive combination of accelerating growth potential, strong cash generation and growing dividends.

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.

Vp has reported another impressive set of interims, confirming strong growth in most markets and a positive outlook. Recent acquisitions are bedding in well and the full year outturn is set to exceed previous expectations (5%/6% EPS upgrades in FY17/FY18). The recent Capital Markets Day provided a reminder of Vp’s qualities (specialist focus, high returns, strong cash generation) and its growth potential, which in our view are not reflected in a modest <11x P/E rating. We firmly believe the shares are due a re-rating and see intrinsic value in excess of 800p.

We expect CareTech to report FY results to September on 8th December. A positive trading update in October indicated that performance for the year was in line with market expectations therefore we are focusing on the outlook. We expect a confident statement since the end of 2016 showed positive trends across fee rates, expansion in places and occupancy. We believe CareTech is well positioned for further expansion, and remains at an attractive valuation. We retain our BUY and 380p price target.
Food intolerance driving growth

Omega Diagnostics Group has an established core business providing high quality in vitro diagnostic tests within three core areas of competence – Food Intolerance, Allergy & Autoimmune, Infectious Disease – that are sold in over 100 countries. The group offers steady low single-digit growth which is profitable and cash generative. Investment in new products has seen the launch of a new panel of automated allergy tests and progress on Visitect CD4 for monitoring of HIV positive patients. Interim results highlighted the opportunities to accelerate growth of the business, particularly Allersys, which has drawn attention from its partner.
