Edison Issues ADR Research Update on Erytech Pharma

Dec 18, 2015, 07:08 ET from Edison Investment Research

LONDON, December 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

The recent €25.4m ($27.7m) private placement provides Erytech with a healthy cash balance, which should allow effective execution on the strategy to advance and accelerate Graspa/Eryasp in the US, to move development into front-line ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) and to continue pursuing new indications. Two-year follow-up ALL data for Graspa were recently presented at ASH, reinforcing its potential as an effective, safe therapy for patients with few options in this indication. Our valuation is increased to $354.2m with the higher cash balance.

Our valuation has increased to $354.2m (from $340m) largely owing to incorporation of the recent €25.4m private placement. We have made no major changes to our underlying Graspa/Eryasp forecasts, which continue to assume that Erytech will retain development and commercialization rights in ALL in the US.
