The full report can be found here: KBIO Initiation
KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc. (KBIO) is a biopharmaceutical company looking to unlock shareholder value through certain FDA incentives, such as the Priority Review Voucher (PRV) Program. The PRV incentivizes the development of treatments for neglected tropical or rare pediatric diseases and offers the holder of the voucher an accelerated future FDA review. The PRV is fully transferable and seven have been sold for between $67.5 and $350 million, with the most recent transactions at $125 million.
Key Report Highlights:
KaloBios reported positive guidance following a December 2016 meeting with the FDA, in which FDA accepted the company's intention to use existing safety and efficacy data from previous studies.
JGR Capital Partners believes KaloBios is likely to receive a minimum of one PRV - for the drug benznidazole. The company could also potentially receive a PRV for lenzilumab, a monoclonal antibody. Historical sales prices for PRVs have ranged from $67.5 million to $350 million.
KaloBios has taken numerous positive steps to turn around the company including: extinguishing Martin Shkreli's stake and all association with the company, becoming current with their SEC filings and the new management team successfully executing on the pipeline so far.
JGR Capital Partners feels KaloBios offers investors the unique opportunity to invest in a biotechnology company with a stock moving catalyst (benznidazole drug approval before the end of year and a PRV), not specifically tied to the successful commercialization and marketing of a specific drug. Given KaloBios experienced management team JGR Capital Partners is encouraged by their drug's commercialization possibilities.
