Concert Pharmaceuticals reports $30M venture debt financing from Hercules

Concert Pharmaceuticals (CNCE) announced that it has entered into a $30M venture debt financing agreement with Hercules Capital (HTGC)."This non-dilutiv financing further extends our existing cash runway. This financing ensures that we are fully capitalized for the meaningful milestones we anticipate in 2018 for our key pipeline product candidates - CTP-543 for alopecia areata and AVP-786 for Alzheimer's agitation. In addition, we continue to expect to realize $160M in connection with the closing of the CTP-656 asset purchase agreement with Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX)," said Roger Tung, Ph.D., President and CEO of Concert. "Hercules has been a good partner for Concert and we're pleased to be working with them again." The debt is in the form of a secured loan, secured by Concert's assets, excluding intellectual property, and bearing interest at a calculated prime-based variable rate currently at 8.55%. The full amount of the loan was funded upon closing. The loan will mature on June 1, 2021. Payments under the loan are interest-only for a period of 18 months, followed by equal monthly installments of principal and interest for 30 months thereafter. In addition, Concert has an option under the terms of the loan to pay off the loan within six months with a 50 percent reduction in the end of term charge and without a prepayment penalty following the closing of the Vertex transaction. In connection with the debt financing, Concert issued Hercules a warrant to purchase up to 61,273 of Concert's common shares at an exercise price of $12.24 per share.

Concert Pharmaceuticals shares can advance further, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Adam Walsh says that Concert's CTP-543 for alopecia areata "remains highly underappreciated by the Street." The analyst says that CTP-543 carries much less risk compared with a typical drug entering Phase 2, due to the 75% overall response rate it showed in a previous Phase 2 study. The analyst is optimistic that the latest Phase 2 results, due out by the end of the year, will be positive. He raised his price target on the shares to $31 from $21 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Concert weakness a buying opportunity, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Adam Walsh said he believes the clinical tablet appearance issue that Concert Pharmaceuticals blamed for the delay in the start of its alopecia areata trial should be relatively easy to fix and only result in a minor delay. He continues to project U.S. approval and launch in FY20 and recommends shares be bought on related weakness. Walsh keeps a Buy rating and $31 price target on Concert shares.

Vertex deal for Concert Pharma strengthens CF franchise, says Baird

The deal also has a chance to extend patient life with improved dosing potential, said Skorney. The analyst believes it is a smart acquisition and reiterated his Outperform rating and $115 price target on Vertex shares.

Resolution of Concert clinical hold should take quarter 'at most,' says Stifel
After Concert Pharmaceuticals announced that that FDA has placed the company's CTP-543 Phase 2 trial for alopecia areata on clinical hold, Stifel analyst Adam Walsh noted that no safety concerns were highlighted and that Concert already has the data of interest in-house, leading him to believe that the resolution of the hold will take a quarter "at most." The analyst, who still expects Concert to initiate and enroll the trial in 2017 and continues to project U.S. approval and launch in FY20, recommends buying on weakness and keeps a Buy rating and $31 price target on Concert shares.
