  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We applied a weighted average valuation methodology to Alder using DCF and EV/Sales under assumptions of commercialization of Eptinezumab (ALD 403) US sales in 2Q 2020 and EU royalties in 2020. Our estimated 2028 FCF is $495 million and terminal value is 4.5x of 2028 estimated FCF. We layered a probability of clinical success of 90% in addition to a 17% discount rate to arrive at our $11 PT using DCF. For EV/Sales, we apply a 3.5 multiple (based on comps) to discounted 2024 sales to derive our $19 PT. Our weighted average valuation is $15 per share. Our base case scenario valuation assumes unadjusted peak sales of $1.1 bn for Eptinezumab in the U.S. in 2025. Our bull case scenario valuation assumes better than anticipated uptake of Eptinezumab with unadjusted peak sales of $1.3 bn in the U.S. in 2025 and a 4.0x terminal multiple, resulting in a $22 PT."

  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Neutral rating and $21 PT for ALDR. Monday, AMC, Alder reported cash of $485M, and our model projects the balance sheet to fund operations well into 2020. Questions on the earnings call centered on the eptinezumab market opportunity and commercialization strategy as the fourth CGRP monoclonal to enter the space. We believe that epti’ is in a class all its own as the only IV form and has a differentiated clinical profile that makes it well-positioned to target the highest burden migraine market and a prescriber base that would prefer to use in-office infusion capabilities."
