Newron Pharmaceuticals (NWRN)

Business description

Xadago launches in Germany

Update | Pharmaceutical & healthcare | 20/05/2015

Xadago has been launched in Germany as expected by commercial partner Zambon, which should lead to Newron’s first recurring royalty income. Xadago has been priced at a premium to Azilect in Germany, which if replicated in other countries and regions, could suggest upside potential to our current forecasts and valuation. We continue to expect a Xadago US approval decision by YE15. Our valuation and forecasts have been updated to reflect the CHF24.3m fund-raise, with our valuation CHF526m.
