Optinose launch of Xhance could far exceed expectations, says Jefferies

After surveying 50 high prescribing physicians, Jefferies analyst David Steinberg says Optinose's launch of Xhance could far exceed expectations. Physicians report 57% of their patients will receive prescriptions annually at peak, Steinberg tells investors in a research note. Using the most conservative response regarding patient use per year, implied peak sales could reach $1.1B, well above the $700M consensus, the analyst contends. He believes that while payer pushback is inevitable, the survey suggests Xhance "could be one of the top sector launches in some time." The anlayst keeps a Buy rating on Optinose shares with a $31 price target.

Buy
OptiNose initiated with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg started OptiNose with a Buy rating and $27 price target. The analyst says Xhance is protected by patents out to 2030 and that he estimate peak sales "well in excess" of $500M. Around 30M Americans suffer from chronic rhinosinusitis but current treatments are suboptimal, Steinberg contends.

OptiNose initiated with an Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst David Amsellem started OptiNose with an Overweight rating and $27 price target. The analyst believes Xhance, the company's form of fluticasone that is delivered via its novel intranasal device, will prove to be a more optimal treatment for nasal polyps and more broadly chronic sinusitis.

OptiNose initiated with an Outperform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Randall Stanicky initiated OptiNose with an Outperform rating and a price target of $33. The analyst says there is "potential for material upsise" from the company's launch of XHANCE as it would target a large chronic rhinosinusitis market with a clear unmet need. Stanicky also cites diminished risks given the recent FDA approval and validated delivery technology.
