  • 1. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "On 8/9, Intec reported 2Q19 with a net loss of ($10M) and ended the period with $21.6M in cash on the balance sheet. Operating expenses are expected to be reduced with the P3 trial in Parkinson’s disease now over. The company is evaluating the data for AP-CD/LD to determine what the next steps may be. While the P3 trial outcome was a disappointment, it’s worth noting that the delivery technology that is the foundation of Intec as a company, did deliver the levodopa as it was supposed to. In addition, there are subgroup data that suggest trial design could be different and potentially have success, in our view. Nonetheless, it’s too early to tell and as we await more clarity, we remain Hold rated." (8/15/2019)

  • 3. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We view the receipt of the FDA Therapy (RMAT) designation as a significant positive for the timelines on KB103. This news follows KB103 receiving the EMA Priority Medicines (PRIME) designation on 29 March. As we have noted, Krystal’s market cap is modest relative to companies with PRIME and/or RMAT/BTD designations. We again reiterate: We would not be surprised if Krystal’s market cap crosses $1 billion by 2020E. On today’s news, we update our detailed model, moving the probability of KB103 launch from 55% to 67%, leading to an increase in our 2030E KB103 sales estimate from $492.1 mm to $596.5 mm. With a reduction in our WACC from 12.4% to 11.9%, these changes lead to a 30% KRYS PT target increase, from $57.50 to $75. has demonstrated impressive wound closure data (albeit in small numbers of patients) in the GEM-1 and GEM-2 studies." (6/24/2019)

The changes to our valuation include: (1) adjustment to base year to reflect the current NPV relative to our September 2018 initiation of coverage; and (2) increasing our projected chance of success for to 15%. We are currently leaving our projected chance of success for KB103 the same, at 25%, and await the pending clinical update this quarter." (5/24/2019)
  • 5. William Blair analysts commented, "We continue to view the anticipated second quarter clinical update of the GEM trial as a significant near-term catalyst for shares. As we have noted previously (see our note, We See Durable Wound Closure and 30%-40% COL7A1 Expression as after reviewing the published literature, we believe that achieving roughly 30%-40% of wild-type (normal) levels of collagen VII could be sufficient to restore skin integrity and prevent skin blistering. We also believe that the presence of anchoring fibrils should be viewed qualitatively only due to its lack of direct correlation with clinical results." (5/6/2019)
