The changes to our valuation include: (1) adjustment to base year; (2) adjustment to fully diluted share count; (3) increasing our discount rate from 15% to 20% to account for the increased risk profile of topsalysin, pending information regarding the patient who passed away; and (4) adjusting our projected launch year for topsalysin to 2023 from 2022, also pending information regarding the patient and next steps." (6/25/2018)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We note that the P2 study of topsalysin is approaching data in prostate cancer, expected in the coming weeks and in our view represents a significant catalyst for the company. Sophiris’ valuation has steadily risen over the last two months, since early May, we believe on the expectation of a positive outcome. Based on prior data in prostate cancer for topsalysin, demonstrating tumor ablation at 6 months in 9/18 patients, we believe the probability of success in the P2 study (same time, endpoint) favors Sophiris."
