  • ISIS Pharm earns $4 mln from Achaogen (AKAO) for the initiation of a Phase 3 study of plazomicin

    Co announced that it has earned a $4 mln milestone payment from Achaogen (AKAO) associated with the initiation of a Phase 3 study of plazomicin in patients with serious multi-drug resistant (MDR), gram-negative bacterial infections. The Phase 3 study is designed as a superiority study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of plazomicin compared to colistin in patients with bloodstream infections and nosocomial pneumonia caused by carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.

    Achaogen's development and commercialization of plazomicin is subject to a license agreement with Isis. Isis is eligible to receive up to $19.5 mln, which includes $3 mln previously received and the $4 mln earned today from Achaogen, as plazomicin advances in development.
    Isis is also eligible to receive up to $20 mln in milestone payments as well as royalties based on sales of plazomicin.

    Cramer just bought KMI for AA+

    The deal is expected to be accretive to distributable cash
    flow by between $0.60 and $1 per share over the next five
    years.

    In addition to higher distribution and lower cost of capital,
    management indicated that M&A was another factor behind its
    decision. They didn't speculate on what sorts of
    transactions they would do, but buying another MLP or going
    upstream into the exploration-and-production space wasn't
    ruled out. They commented that they want to remain the "toll
    road" to the industry (collecting fees to transport), but
    knowing this management as we do, we wouldn't put anything
    past them in driving higher growth, stronger payouts and
    delivering exactly what they intended when they first
    started the MLP structure.

    Shares trade at a discount to midstream C Corps on a
    yield/growth parameter, yet they will have a higher payout
    ratio at 90% (vs. 70% to 80% for peers). It trades at a
    slight premium to the group on enterprise value/EBITDA of
    15.7x vs. 13x for the group and 16x price/DCF vs. 15x for the
    group. But KMI is in strong position to post higher organic
    growth given its size and scale. We like the deal, and
    believe higher growth is inevitable as well as a higher
    stock price over time. Our price target is $50.

    We like the deal for several reasons: It simplifies the
    company structure, reduces the cost of capital by half,
    positions the company to raise the dividend annually by 10%,
    gives it size/scale advantages and capability to be an
    aggressive consolidator in the industry, and most important,
    investors can focus solely on the strong underlying
    fundamentals rather than the distractions of various moving
    pieces, which should afford it a higher valuation multiple.
    Also, as a C Corp the company opens up its potential
    investor base compared to its general-partner peers.

    The new entity will remove the incentive distribution
    structure that has prevented the company from paying out a
    higher distribution and it raises the fair value estimates
    substantially. It creates an energy midstream giant with an
    enterprise value of $140 billion that generates $8 billion
    in earnings before interest taxes depreciation and
    amortization annually and nearly doubles the cash available
    dividends to $7.3 billion in 2020 from $4.7 billion in 2015.
    This translates into 10% distribution growth between 2015
    and 20120. This alone is reason to own the position.

    KMI was set up as the general partner, with interests in
    Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP:NYSE), El Paso
    Pipeline Partners LP (EPB:NYSE) and interests in several
    legacy El Paso pipeline and storage assets. It was one of
    the largest general partners in the MLP space with a very
    diverse set of assets across the energy midstream spectrum.
    Following last Sunday night's acquisition of all of its
    equity interests, the company's structure and growth story
    has changed significantly, and for the better. Because of
    this transaction we want to be involved in the name as it
    has transformed itself into a simpler C Corp structure,
    which will produce higher dividends, see lower costs, do
    more M&A, and create the world's third-largest energy
    company behind Exxon Mobil (XOM:NYSE) and Chevron (CVX:NYSE).

    The deal announced last week was the acquisition of all the
    outstanding equity interests of KMP: Kinder Morgan
    Management and El Paso Pipeline Partners, which will
    consolidate the midstream assets into one entity. KMI will
    issue $40 billion in equity and pay $4 billion in cash. The
    deal will close in 4Q 2014. In essence, it will remain an
    MLP under a C Corp structure, so it will continue to pay out
    the majority of its cash flow in the form of a dividend and
    then finance growth capital with outside debt and equity.

  • We'll also buy 500 shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI:NYSE) at
    $41.39. In energy, we like to own stocks that either have an
    ongoing internal restructuring, a commitment to a high
    payout ratio (and a growing divided yield), or management
    that is committed to creating shareholder value. KMI is all
    three. We like the recent move to simplify its corporate
    structure, going from a master limited partnership to a C
    corporation, which will lower its cost structure and enable
    the company to complete acquisitions for further growth. It
    also has an attractive 4.2% dividend yield and an attractive
    valuation.

    So much more detail

    Oil guidance for the year is 42-47K barrels/day compared with where the co entered the year at around 42K barrels/day. On an annual basis, oil production should grow 40-50% above the co's FY14 annual oil volumes. The co said it continues to integrate EPL into Energy XXI and it has seen savings ahead of what it originally expected.

    In Q&A, some wondered if the co's guidance was conservative (co hasn't provided guidance in the past). At the mid-point of guidance, FY15 production is expected to increase 37% over the prior year, with oil volumes 48% ahead of the prior year. July 2014 production ~ 59,000 BOE/d with 42,000 barrels per day of oil.

    In the quarter, production came in ahead of guidance for the quarter with a higher percentage of oil in forecast. Co increased reserves once again as it has every year since the co was formed. That gives the co a six-year annual growth rate of nearly 40%.

    The EPL acquisition was the primary driver of growth following the prior year when organic additions lifted reserves nearly 50%. Still, organic additions in FY14 net of revisions added 12 mln barrels of oil, giving us a 72% organic reserve replacement overall. Co replaced 124% of its production organically and notes that oil is really what matters in this value equation.

    Oil is the sole focus of the co's core joint program, and it successfully grew its oil reserves organically in addition to the 53 mln barrels of oil that it required in the EPL deal. Those oil barrels drove EXXI's PV-10 value to $7.6 bln on proved reserves and $14.6 bln on a 3P basis Having acquired the EPL assets right before its year-end, its team was unable to review each of their reservoir, so the co we believes there's still potential for more upside booking of the 3Ps reserve data this year.

    Both oil and overall production came in ahead of guidance. Full-year production averaged 45,000 barrels a day, of which 67% were liquids.
