  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "While the glaucoma market holds potential, Aerie faces stiff competition from established branded and generic pharmaceutical companies, such as Novartis’ Simbrinza and Travtan, and Allergan’s Lumigan, as well as other smaller biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past twelve months. The FDA approval of Aerie’s lead drug, Rhopressa is a significant boost for the company. Aerie is also evaluating Rocklatan, a once-daily, quadruple-action fixed-dose combination of Rhopressa and Xalatan (latanoprost). The PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act) goal date for the completion of the FDA’s review of the Rocklatan NDA is set for Mar 14, 2019. Loss estimates have widened ahead of the Q4 earnings and the company has a negative earnings surprise in the recent quarters." (1/15/2019)

Valuation Summary We value Aerie based on the NPV of the cash flows associated with its glaucoma drug candidates. Our price target is $86/share." (10/2/2018)

In addition to Rhopressa, Aerie plans to commercialize Roclatan, a combination of Rhopressa and latanoprost, the leading glaucoma therapy in the US market. Beyond glaucoma, Aerie is exploring the use of ROCK inhibitors in back-of-the-eye conditions like wet AMD and could explore opportunities to utilize ROCK inhibitors outside of ophthalmology.
