    • 1. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "Due to the November 29, 2016 merger of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc." (11/30/2016)
    • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Aegerion’s third-quarter results were encouraging, with the company reporting a narrower-than-expected loss and revenues surpassing expectations. Aegerion’s upcoming merger agreement with QLT Inc. is a big positive. It will leverage the company’s development and commercial capabilities to provide transformative treatments to patients suffering from rare but debilitating diseases. The agreement comes at a time when the company's lead drug, Juxtapid, is facing challenges due to the launch of PCSK9 inhibitors in the U.S. The company added another drug, Myalept from AstraZeneca, which boosted its portfolio. However, Aegerion is facing reimbursement hurdles for Myalept as prior authorizations are taking longer than expected and payers are requesting additional data. Moreover, the decision to withdraw Juxtapid from the EU is disappointing." (11/21/2016)
