- 2. Cann analysts commented, "CRISPR Therapeutics presented updated preclinical data on CTX001, a CRISPR gene-editing therapy for beta-thalassemia and sickle cell disease, at the 2017 American Society of Hematology meeting. These data are highly supportive of the upcoming phase I clinical development program in beta-thalassemia, which is on track to begin in 2018." (12/10/2017)
- 3. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We calculated the CRISPR sector enterprise value (EV) by discounting Chardan target sector EVs of companies in the AAV (assumed 3 years ahead) and small RNA (assumed 3 years ahead) gene therapy sectors; we applied a discount rate of 20%, which we believe is reasonable for preclinical biotech firms. Giving CRSP a CRISPR sector valuation distribution of 15% of the calculated CRISPR sector EV (based on our view of the firm’s relative IP weakness balanced by potential first entry of a CRISPR therapy into the clinic) and adding $272.3 mm in cash, we project a CRSP market cap range of $866 mm-$901 mm."
