The Disclosure Section may be found on pages 3 – 4.Valuation We use a blend of DCF and EV/EBITDA to get to our PT of $75." (1/4/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Emergent BioSolutions' recent acquisitions of PaxVax and Adapt Pharma look encouraging as they will expand the company’s presence in the public health threats market. We are positive on Emergent’s spin-off of its biosciences business into a separate publicly traded company as it resulted in reduction of the company’s cost structure. Shares of Emergent have outperformed the broader industry in 2018. Notably, the company derives majority of its revenues from BioThrax sales. Hence, its sole dependence on BioThrax for revenues is a headwind. Moreover, Emergent depends on certain single-source suppliers for key materials and services, which are necessary for manufacturing BioThrax. This in turn, also raises a concern." (1/3/2019)
