Pipeline progress

Mesoblast’s product pipeline continues to mature as key milestones are met. The filing of MSC-100-IV in graft vs host disease (GvHD) in Japan in early October marks its first product submission. Phase III trials started early this year for MPC-150-IM in congestive heart failure (CHF), while Phase III trials for MPV-06-ID in low back pain are expected to start by the end of 2014 following a productive meeting mid-year with the FDA.

MMG

Revised valuation; Las Bambas update

Update | Mining | 28/10/2014

As a result, our core NAV for the company moves from HK$2.0/share to HK$2.2. Following the increase in capex and commissioning delay, we in turn lower our net attributable valuation of Las Bambas to HK$0.44/share. At the same time, we remain positive on the project as we see a number of upside risks to our valuation and the copper market fundamentals remain strong.

Update | Mining | 15/10/2014

The TGO continues to outperform, with gold production ahead of our Q115 estimate and at low quartile total cash operating costs of A$867/oz. Continued positive mine-to-mill reconciliations have now resulted in Alkane reviewing its resource base and mine planning with a view to optimising the TGO’s future production profile. This could bring forward underground production and combine the planned Caloma and Caloma Two open pits.
