  • Corporate Insiders Snap Up Shares of Liquidia Technologies

    Corporate Insiders Snap Up Shares of Liquidia Technologies

    Biopharmaceutical company Liquidia Technologies (LQDA) has seen two corporate insiders pull the trigger on shares in the past week. Insiders such as corporate officers and board members know the companies they manage inside and out. However, these people in the know are required by law to disclose their trades in order to level the playing field. So, following insider activity can be a helpful strategy for investors. On April 13, Liquidia Directors Paul Manning and Roger Jeffs purchased shares of the company. While Manning acquired 198,413 shares worth about $500,000, Jeffs acquired 99,206 shares worth about $250,000. (See Liquidia Technologies stock analysis on TipRanks) On March 30, Wedbush analyst Liana Moussatos reiterated a Hold rating on the stock and reduced the price target to $2 from $4. Moussatos commented, “Liquidia is focused on leveraging its proprietary PRINT technology to improve the clinical profile of approved active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). The lead candidate LIQ861 is a potentially best-in-class dry powder formulation of inhaled treprostinil (reference drug TYVASO) for the treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).” Furthermore, Moussatos cited the fact that Liquidia is likely losing first-to-market advantage for the PAH oral switch to United Therapeutics’ Tyvaso DPI as the reason for lowering the price target. Liquidia is seeking a strategic partner for its second product candidate LIQ865, which is being developed for post-operative procedures. It is also evaluating the drug for additional indications. Moussatos continues to monitor Liquidia’s effort to get LIQ861 “across the regulatory goal-line and progress with early commercial efforts for Liquidia-PAH (RareGen).” Additionally, based on Liquidia’s fiscal 2020 results, Moussatos notes that the company is streamlining operations, and expects a 40% decrease in total operating costs in 2021-22. Total operating expenses for the company were $59.6 million in fiscal 2020. Consensus among analysts is that Liquidia is a Moderate Buy, based on 2 Buys and 1 Hold. The average analyst price target of $4.67 implies upside potential of 68%. Shares have dropped about 60.2% over the past year.

  • Liquidia Corporation Announces $21.7 Million Private Placement

    Liquidia Corporation Announces $21.7 Million Private Placement

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquidia Corporation (NASDAQ: LQDA) announced today that it has entered into a common stock purchase agreement with certain institutional, accredited investors for the private placement of 8,626,037 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $2.52 per share, the closing price per share of common stock on April 12, 2021. The private placement is expected to close today and yield gross proceeds of approximately $21.7 million. The investor group was led by Caligan Partners LP and includes participation by existing directors Paul Manning and Roger Jeffs. Upon closing, David Johnson, a Partner and Co-Founder of Caligan Partners LP, will be appointed to the board of directors of Liquidia Corporation as a Class II Director and a member of the Audit Committee. Previously, Mr. Johnson worked at The Carlyle Group as Managing Director and at Morgan Stanley as Vice President in the Principal Investments area. Mr. Johnson was previously a director of AMAG Pharmaceuticals. Stephen Bloch, M.D., Chairman of the Liquidia Board of Directors, said: “Adding David to the Board further strengthens our abilities to navigate financial markets and advise Liquidia with the short and long term in mind. We look forward to bringing his experiences to bear in future discussions.” David Johnson said: “We are excited to support Liquidia’s commitment to bring novel therapies to market for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Caligan believes that LIQ861 will be the best inhaled option to treat PAH because of its convenience and ability to safely provide symptomatic relief at higher dosage levels than existing inhaled treprostinil therapies. We are also excited about Liquidia’s recent announcement that its subcutaneous Treprostinil Injection will soon be available to PAH patients. We have tremendous confidence in Damian deGoa and the Liquidia team to execute on their strategic plan and look forward to working closely with them during their next stage of growth.” Damian deGoa, Chief Executive Officer of Liquidia, said: “We are fortunate to include David Johnson on the board and to bring smart, committed investors into Liquidia. This financing builds on several steps taken during the last three months to strengthen our balance sheet and position the company for an exciting future.” Net proceeds from this private placement are expected to strengthen commercial capability for the introduction of LIQ861 and the subcutaneous administration of Treprostinil Injection, enable growth initiatives, and provide support general corporate purposes. The securities sold in the private placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state or other applicable jurisdiction’s securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state or other jurisdictions’ securities laws. Liquidia has agreed to file a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission registering the resale of the shares of common stock to be issued and sold in the private placement no later than the 180th day after the closing of the private placement. Any offering of the securities under the registration statement will only be made by means of a prospectus. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. About LIQ861LIQ861 is an investigational inhaled dry powder formulation of treprostinil designed using Liquidia’s PRINT® technology with the goal of enhancing deep-lung delivery using a convenient, palm-sized dry powder inhaler for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). PRINT® technology enables the development of drug particles that are precise and uniform in size, shape and composition, and that are engineered for optimal deposition in the lung following oral inhalation. Liquidia believes LIQ861 can overcome the limitations of current inhaled therapies and has the potential to maximize the therapeutic benefits of treprostinil in treating PAH by safely delivering higher doses into the lungs. Liquidia has completed an open-label, multi-center phase 3 clinical study of LIQ861 in patients diagnosed with PAH known as INSPIRE, or Investigation of the Safety and Pharmacology of Dry Powder Inhalation of Treprostinil. About Treprostinil InjectionTreprostinil Injection is the first-to-file, fully substitutable generic treprostinil for parenteral administration. Treprostinil Injection contains the same active ingredient, same strengths, same dosage form and same inactive ingredients as Remodulin® (treprostinil), and is offered to patients and physicians with the same level of service and support, but at a lower price than the branded drug. Liquidia PAH promotes the appropriate use of Treprostinil Injection for the treatment of PAH in the United States in partnership with its commercial partner, who holds the Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) with the FDA. About Liquidia CorporationLiquidia Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of products in pulmonary hypertension and other applications of its PRINT® Technology. The company operates through its two wholly owned subsidiaries, Liquidia Technologies, Inc. and Liquidia PAH, LLC. Liquidia Technologies is developing two product candidates: LIQ861, an inhaled dry powder formulation of treprostinil for the treatment of PAH, and LIQ865, an injectable, sustained-release formulation of bupivacaine for the management of local post-operative pain for three to five days after a procedure.
