Sarepta surges following update on Exondys 51 launch

Shares of Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) surged higher after the company disclosed sales data for the launch of its Duchenne muscular dystrophy drug Exondys 51. Sales of the drug hit $5.4M as of December 31, 2016, Sarepta reported at today's JPMorgan Healthcare Conference. The company also stated that a majority of insurance plans are covering or evaluating coverage on a case-by-case basis. Only 8% of Covered Lives are denying converge while 79% are pending policy decisions, Sarepta CEO Edward Kaye said today. He notes that over 250 genetically verified start forms have been submitted since the launch of Exondys 51. The company, for the first time, also disclosed data in mice for its next generation antisense platform, PPMO. The data show improved delivery in vivo and "superior" dystrophin, Kaye told the audience. Sarepta expects to dose PPMO in humans by the end of 2017. Sarepta shares are up 13% to $35.46 in morning trading. Catabasis Pharmaceuticals (CATB) is up 7% to $4.44. The two companies last September announced a joint research collaboration to explore a combination drug treatment approach for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Overweight
Sarepta initiated with an Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Anupam Rama started Sarepta Therapeutics with an Overweight rating and $40 price target. The stock is down over 50% since the September approval of Exondys 51 for the treatment of Exon 51 Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Rama tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes that while shares could be range-bound in the first half of 2017 amid a "conservative launch trajectory" relative to consensus expectations, Sarepta "could be poised for a rebound" in the second half of the year as it works work with payers and provides greater clarity. He thinks "patience will be required" for Sarepta investors.

Oppenheimer remains bullish on Sarepta
Oppenheimer analyst Hartaj Singh notes that Sarepta has a commercial and active product in Exondys 51 for Exon 51 amenable Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a disease with a high unmet need. The analyst believes that a "complex reimbursement environment" coupled with a small target patient population in the U.S. could lead to a slower launch than expected. However, once the reimbursement process is settled and the patient on-boarding process is efficient, he expects a stronger sales ramp. Singh remains bullish on the stock, and reiterates an Outperform rating and $76 price target on the shares.

Sarepta price target lowered to $65 after physician survey at JMP Securities
JMP Securities analyst Liisa Bayko reported the firm conducted its first survey of U.S. physicians who treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients to gauge early experiences with Sarepta's Exondys 51. At the end of 2016, respondents had written a prescription to about 1 in 5 eligible patients, 1 in 5 were denied coverage and about 15% were in the adjudication process, noted Bayko, who lowered her price target on Sarepta to $65 from $90 to adjust for the survey results as well as an updated pricing analysis. Bayko keeps an Outperform rating on Sarepta and said she sees potential upside to about $160 per share if Exondys 51 is approved in the EU and if all of its earlier-stage assets targeting exons 45/53 are successful.

The analyst, however, continues to see favorable risk/reward into Phase 2 data in late 2016 for lead agent CAT-1004 in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Beatty keeps a Buy rating on Catabasis.

Catabasis approaching 'important inflection point,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Hartaj Singh believes Catabasis Pharmaceuticals is approaching an "important inflection point," with Phase 1/2 MoveDMD Part B top-line data release in the first half of Q1. The analyst notes that a positive MoveDMD trial should lead to a pivotal Phase 3 trial being initiated by the company later in 2017. He reiterated an Outperform rating on the stock, but lowered his price target on the shares to $18 from $23 on valuation.
