Avacta Group Plc - On track and undervalued

At the AGM of January 18th, Avacta reported good progress for both the Affimer therapeutic and reagents programs.
Avacta Group Plc - On track and undervalued

Their lead immuno-oncology development program is proceeding according to plan and multiple development milestones are expected in the course of 2018 (see next section for further details).

We look at Avacta using a SOTP approach that considers separately the therapeutic programs and the reagents business.
 
Essentially we work out "backwards" what the implied equity value should be today, assuming Affimer products reach certain commercial levels ten years from now

KEY INVESTOR MESSAGES

  • Faster than expected development of the second immuno-oncology (I-O) program, a LAG3 inhibitor, allows company to evolve its lead program into a more ambitious LAG3/PD-L1 bispecific aiming to enter the clinic in 2020
  • Good progress of the ongoing external collaborations in two key areas: gene delivery (Moderna, OncoSec, FIT Biotech) and drug conjugates (Glythera)
  • Expect further licensing deals for Affimer reagents, based on multiple on-going evaluations
  • Stock price weakness reflects in our view uncertainty around a likely capital raise before year end rather than the company's strong fundamentals
