A new lease of life and a cash injection

Update | Pharmaceutical & healthcare | 04/02/2015

The discharge of the second patient implanted with the Carmat heart last August satisfies the 30-day success criteria of the feasibility study. The patient returned home supported by a 3kg portable energy source newly approved for trials, which enhances the clinical and commercial utility of the bio-prosthesis. Carmat has secured a contingent equity line up to €50m, which could fund CE mark approval. We have raised our DCF valuation to €591m from €533m due to running the model forward a year and updating for estimated post-equity raise net cash of €24.8m.
