Steady as she goes
01 Mar 17
Basilea reported a solid set of 2016 numbers ahead of guidance, driven by higher than expected product sales in H216 combined with lower than expected operating costs. Cresemba (for invasive mould infections), in particular, continues to pick up momentum both in the EU and the US through US partner Astellas. Zevtera’s US pivotal Phase III clinical trial programme for bacterial infections remains on track to initiate in mid-2017. Multiple distribution and commercialisation agreements signed in H216 should lead to international launches starting from 2018 for both products. We value Basilea at CHF1,048m or CHF97/share.
Licensing double act
16 Sep 16
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.
Interim results lead to upgrades
27 Mar 17
Bioventix reported a strong set of interim results with revenues increasing by 32% (c.12-17% at constant exchange rates (CER)), driven largely by the continued roll-out of its customers’ Vitamin D assay products. This, in turn, led to a 41% increase in pre-tax profits and a 40% increase in adjusted EPS; which is reflective of the operational gearing of the business. We are upgrading our adjusted EPS to 78.7p (+5%) and, consequently, are raising our target price to 1750p. At this price level, the shares would trade on a 22.4x FY 2018 P/E and an EV/EBITDA of 17x. We await confirmation of Siemen’s high sensitivity troponin assay launch, expected in FY 2018.
