Shield Therapeutics PLC - Feraccru: a potential game changer in the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia

Shield Therapeutics PLC - Feraccru: a potential game changer in the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia

Feraccru is a unique, non-salt, formulation oral iron: strong efficacy with “placebo-like” tolerability

Potential to change iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) therapeutic algorithm

Feraccru to become the preferred option for patients not adequately controlled or who are intolerant to generic oral iron supplements (before they switch to intravenous iron).

With an indication in Europe to treat iron deficiency, Feraccru’s use would prevent the occurrence/reoccurrence of iron deficiency anaemia

Feraccru European commercialisation expected to accelerate significantly following the licensing agreement with Norgine announced in September 2018

Key upcoming milestones: results of the head-to-head phase 3 study of Feraccru vs intravenous (i.v.) iron expected in first half (1H) of 2019; Feraccru PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act) date 27 July 2019

Current market capitalisation of about £40mln is by and large not reflecting Feraccru commercial potential

Shield’s lead asset Feraccru is a novel and highly differentiated iron formulation, for oral administration, indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency, i.e. low levels of iron body stores, usually caused by blood loss or malabsorption.

Legendary Investments (LON:LEG) creates value through privately held and pre-market investment opportunities with the potential for outsized returns. The company has a strong track record with:

  • Total investments valued at of £6.2mln (from zero in 2011)
  • Out of 12 investees in total, five are exhibiting multiple returns from 1.3x to 35x
  • Two crystallised with exits at a multiple of the initial investment

We believe this is an interesting time to revisit the investment case, as the shares are currently trading at a discount to net asset value (NAV), which has not been the case in the past.

N.B. Legendary plans to change its name to Eight Peaks Group (LON: 8PG) in the near future.
