  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Adamas Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company driven to improve the lives of those affected by chronic disorders of the central nervous system. The company seeks to achieve this by modifying the pharmacokinetic profiles of approved drugs to create novel therapeutics for use alone and in fixed-dose combination products. Adamas is currently developing ADS-5102, its lead wholly-owned product candidate, for the treatment of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) associated with Parkinson's disease and for the treatment of major symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis in patients with walking impairment.

Forest is responsible for marketing both products in the United States under an exclusive license from Adamas. " (11/6/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation methodology, risks and uncertainties. Our valuation ascribes a $1.15B valuation to GOCOVRI in PD $400M value for ADS-5102 based on a risk-adjusted net present value (rNPV) that employs a 15% discount rate, 30% effective tax rate and 30% cost of sales and marketing. We utilize a 60% probability of success for ADS-5102." (11/5/2018)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We hosted an investor lunch with a practicing neurologist who discussed his experience with Gocovri. Specifically, he reported hallucinations in approximately 50% of his patients, vs. the 21% reported in the product label. This doctor attributed the side effect to rapid titration to the 274 mg daily dose, and has started to experiment with starting patients on the lowest 68.5 mg dose of the product (but was concerned that efficacy was modest at this level). This physician treated ~20 patients so far, but only 5-7 of these currently remain on the drug. We learned that for his patients 65 years had to be stepped down in dose or stop taking the product."
