Valeant CEO: GI franchise remains 'core asset for future growth potential'

As part of the company's announcement Tuesday of a sales force expansion targeting its gastrointestinal products Xifaxan and Relistor, Valeant CEO Joe Papa commented: "Our goal in building a primary care sales force is to maximize opportunities for Xifaxan and Relistor to help our products reach full potential. Xifaxan and Relistor are integral to our gastrointestinal franchise which remains a core asset for future growth potential in the hands of Valeant." Xifaxan and Relistor are developed under Valeant's Salix unit. The company announced in early November that it is "currently in discussions with third parties for various divestitures including but not limited to Salix," with Wells Fargo analyst David Maris commenting at the time that a Salix sale could "significantly" reduce the company's growth profile. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Valeant are now flat in post-market trading after initially trading down 0.5%.

Deutsche weighs impact on Valeant should Salix be sold
Deutsche Bank analyst Gregg Gilbert hopes to hear closure soon on a potential sale of Salix by Valeant Pharmaceuticals. While a sale is not a "no-brainer" given the unit's growth and durability, a deal could improve Valeant's debt situation and add to its value, Gilbert tells investors in a research note. His preliminary analysis suggests that a sale of Salix for $10B coupled with de-levering would be "significantly" dilutive to earnings but accretive to Valeant's value. His analysis yields earnings dilution of 26%-27% in 2018- 2021 and an increase in the company's theoretical discounted cash flow value to $32 from $24. Gilbert continues to like the near-term setup in shares of Valeant but keeps a Hold rating on the shares with a $24 price target. The pharmaceutical closed yesterday up 44c to $17.44.

Valeant downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Irina Koffler downgraded Valeant Pharmaceuticals to Underperform, her firm's sell rating equivalent, and cut her price target for the shares to $11 from $25. The drugmaker closed yesterday at $17.83. Koffler believes growth challenges, 2017 guidance risk, legal overhangs and weaker asset divestitures create an unfavorable risk/reward profile. She expects the shares to trend lower over the next 6-12 months.

Valeant negative headlines remain a risk, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Neil Maruoka noted yesterday's headlines regarding criminal charges against a former Valeant executive. He said although the charges are not pertinent to Valeant it underscores the negative headline risk that is associated with owning the shares. Maruoka said the company's lower guidance suggests growth headwinds into next year and believes the company still needs to sell assets to de-lever. Maruoka maintained his Hold rating and $17 price target on Valeant shares.

Deutsche still likes near-term setup for Valeant shares
Deutsche Bank analyst Gregg Gilbert said yesterday that he still likes the near-term setup for shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals after federal prosecutors announced criminal charges against former executive Gary Tanner and the former CEO of Philidor. It is "good to see" that Valeant and other senior executives were not charged, Gilbert told investors in a research note. The charges could be an important step forward as the company and new management team distance themselves from the past, Gilbert wrote. The analyst points out that the bar for 2016 has already been lowered and that new CFO Paul Herendeen thinks of guidance as a commitment. Gilbert keeps a Hold rating on Valeant with a $24 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 12c to $17.98.
