Ferrer to buy Alexza for $0.90 per share plus CVR
11 May 16
Ferrer entered into a definitive agreement with Alexza, whereby Ferrer will acquire the company for $0.90 per share in cash, plus contingent value rights (CVRs) entitling shareholders to a pro rata share of up to four milestone-based payments, totalling a potential maximum of $35m (or approximately $1.60 per share) subject to certain deductions. This offer, unanimously supported by Alexza’s board, follows the letter of intent entered into by both parties in late February. The offer represents a 67% premium to the 9 May closing price and is expected to close in Q216, subject to completing the tender offer by shareholders.
Ferrer signals intent to potentially buy company
08 Mar 16
Alexza disclosed on 26 February that it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) from Ferrer on 15 February to acquire all outstanding Alexza common shares, and Alexza agreed to proceed with discussions to help further facilitate Ferrer’s due diligence. Although Ferrer has already completed a significant amount of due diligence, a key factor in the negotiations will be determining a price acceptable to both parties. Ferrer’s LOI signaled it could potentially finalize a formal offer within 20 days. We are placing our valuation under review, pending the outcome of the Ferrer approach. Our last published equity valuation was $20.9m.
Regaining Adasuve rights amid strategic review
01 Dec 15
Alexza is in transition as it is undergoing a strategic review to either unlock value or fund R&D programs such as AZ-007. The decision to reacquire US Adasuve rights from Teva may facilitate this process, as an outright sale or royalty agreement for its entire interest in Adasuve may be more straightforward once the US rights are regained. After lowering our revenue and COGS assumptions, our valuation on a standalone basis, net of debt, is $20.9m, or $1.04 per share fully diluted.
Regaining US Adasuve rights, new opportunity?
02 Nov 15
Alexza and Teva have reached an agreement whereby Alexza will reacquire the US commercial rights for Adasuve, with a projected target completion date of 1 January 2016. US sales since the March 2014 launch have been tepid (Teva-derived product revenue to Alexza was under $3m) and recent developments at Teva (ie Actavis acquisition) may have deprioritized Adasuve’s position within the firm. While Teva’s Adasuve relinquishment may reflect a reduced long-term sales outlook, the process may actually help facilitate Alexza’s ongoing strategic review. An outright sale or royalty agreement for Alexza’s entire interest in Adasuve may be more straightforward once US rights are regained.

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.
