Our price target is derived from a market value of the firm at $302M, which includes a discounted cash flow-based asset value of $313M for DRS, excluding $10.7M debt and using a 15% discount rate, 0% terminal growth rate and 60% probability of success for Tamsulosin DRS. Risks include, but are not limited to: (1) failure of FC2 or Tamsulosin DRS to achieve commercial success due to reimbursement, penetration rate, and/or competition; (2) failure of Tamsulosin DRS in clinical trials; (3) clinical trial failures with other pipeline candidates; and (4) potential dilution risk."
