Affirm Buy. $17 PT. We employ a rNPV model, driven by U.S. sales of vadadustat (early 2022 launch, 75% POS, $2.5B peak U.S. sales) and Auryxia (peak sales of $409M in 2024) out to 2028 (zero terminal value) discounted at 12.5%. Risks to our investment thesis and target price include: (1) failure in pivotal Phase 3 vadadustat studies; (2) failure to secure regulatory approval of vadadustat; (3) a smaller than anticipated commercial opportunity due to market size, competition, and/or pricing; and (4) intellectual property opposition."
