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 - Small-cap quantitative research - Momentum screen refresh + 10 focus stocks
12 Jan 17
We have refreshed our momentum style screen for the first time since inception on 26 July 2016. As before, the screen selects the 25 stocks exhibiting the most extreme momentum characteristics, according to our measurement method. From these we have selected 10 to focus on. Since inception the screen has underperformed both the main small-cap and micro-cap indices against a background of generally rising momentum. We have noted a subset of the basket, where decelerating momentum at the time of measurement appears correlated with significant share price falls since selection. We shall monitor this factor with the new screen, albeit there are only two such stocks showing this pattern, namely Lamprell (not rated) and Gear4music (not rated).
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 12-01-2017
12 Jan 17
As anticipated, the second half has again been stronger than H1 and results will be broadly in line with expectations. In line with this, the order book has continued to grow and is at record levels. This confirms that significant progress has been made in the Group’s shift towards its Technology Products division which, as targeted, contributed c.60% of group revenue in FY16. The small acquisition of Cable Power also gives a complementary boost to the product range. It is also worth noting the significant reduction in net debt, £1.0m ahead of our forecast. We remain supportive of the Group’s strategy and continue to see a bright future as this transition towards a design led technology solutions business continues. We look forward to more detail in March at the final results.
