Genedrive -On Track to Launch the First CE-market Decentralised HCV Test
  • Overall Genedrive PLC (LON: GDR) reported a business and financial update for the six months to December 2017 in line with expectations
  • Launch preparation of Genedrive® HCV test with partner Sysmex on track, expect sales to start coming through in CY2018
  • £1.3mln income from the ongoing collaboration with the US DoD, in line with expectations
  • Discussions for the disposal of the Services business are in progress
  • With £4.6mln of cash at end-2017, and given the company's expected cash burn, a capital raise in the next 12 months can't be ruled out
  • Full financial results for the six months to December 2017 to be published on March 20th

As discussed more in depth in our initiation note of November 2017, we value Genedrive on a SOTP basis.
 
Based on expected revenue of c. £15 mln in 2025, we value Genedrive’s diagnostic division approx. £24 mln.
 
Including the value we attribute to the Services business and the company's net debt leads to an equity valuation of about £25 mln, almost 5x current market capitalization.

  1. e-Therapeutics (LON:ETX) focuses on the discovery of  new drugs in a more efficient and effective way and aims to be a valued partner to address the productivity challenge that the pharma industry faces.
  2. e-Therapeutics (LON:ETX) has developed a novel and unique in-silico approach to drug discovery: starting from the analysis of complex interactions between proteins in biological systems (networks), they apply advanced computational techniques to identify new drug candidates.
  3. This approach was labeled Network-driven Drug Discovery (NDD) and has been validated across several therapeutic areas (cancer, central nervous system, auto-immunity, infectious diseases) and molecular pathways.
  4. e-Therapeutics (LON:ETX) discovery platform has generated three drug candidates for multiple cancer indications which are ready to be out-licensed to pharma partners for their further development.
  5. We estimate e-Therapeutics intrinsic value to be roughly 3x higher than current market capitalisation. The latter doesn't reflect the commercial potential of e-Therapeutics' most advanced drug candidates and of the platform itself.
  6. e-Therapeutics ability to finalise a co-development or licensing agreement in the near term will represent a key inflection point for its stock re-rating.
