LONDON, March 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Edison Investment Research, a leading international investment research firm, announces the initiation of full coverage of Threshold Pharmaceuticals
Highlights of the analysis on Threshold Pharmaceuticals by Edison's pharma & biotech analysts Dr Philippa Gardner, Maxim Jacobs, and Dr Mick Cooper are as follows:
Threshold Pharmaceuticals is a US oncology company focused on tumour hypoxia, a low-oxygen condition found in most solid tumours and some blood cancers. Evofosfamide is in Phase III for soft tissue sarcoma (STS) and pancreatic cancer and earlier trials in multiple other cancers, and is partnered with Merck KGaA.
Our Threshold valuation is $949m or $13.4/share based on an NPV analysis, including net cash and evofosfamide in a variety of indications, risk-adjusted to reflect the current stage of development. This includes our base-case market share assumptions until there is more clarity on the magnitude of evofosfamide's benefit. Pro forma $86.8m net cash, post the $30m fund-raise, should be sufficient to fund operations into 2017, beyond Phase III data readouts.
