Invitae to acquire Jungla for approximately $50M

Invitae announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Jungla, a privately held company funded by Andreessen Horowitz that has developed a cloud-based platform that combines clinical knowledge with advances in functional genomics, biophysics, cellular engineering, machine learning, and distributed systems to help clinicians and patients understand the results of genetic and genomic tests. The combination is expected to further enhance Invitae's genetic variant interpretation and ability to deliver high-quality, more affordable genetic testing for use in mainstream medical care. Separately, Invitae announced the addition of RNA analysis to its commercial testing, beginning with patients undergoing cancer testing. Under the definitive agreement, Invitae will acquire Jungla for approximately $50M upon closing, $35M of which shall be in Invitae common stock and $15M of which shall be in cash, subject to certain adjustments. In addition, Invitae will pay up to $15M upon the achievement of certain milestones, mostly in stock with the balance in cash. The acquisition is expected to close in the coming days, subject to customary closing conditions. Invitae has already factored in the additional operating expense of this acquisition in prior statements about expected 2019 cash burn.

Buy
Invitae initiated with a Buy at Chardan
Chardan analyst Steven Wardell initiated Invitae with a Buy and $29 price target. Wardell said Invitae is the cost and quality leader in the genetic testing market with a centralized testing and data strategy that positions the company to compete in this large, and attractive market. The analyst expects strong topline growth over the next three years and likes management's ability to execute and their confidence on where the sector is going and their place in it. He believes shares are mispriced versus peers given it is a growth leader among high-growth digital health companies.

Outperform
Invitae price target raised to $30 from $21 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Kevin DeGeeter raised his price target for Invitae to $30 from $21 based on improved long-term competitive positioning for the company's patient-initiated testing given data presented at the ACMG meeting demonstrating poor performance for a leading DTC genetic test and potential consolidation in DTC market as industry matures and economies of scale, quality/clinical data and regulatory oversight drive market share. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

UnitedHealth preferred lab launch a long-term plus for Invitae, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Bruce Jackson noted that UnitedHealthcare (UNH) plans to launch a Preferred Laboratory Network to include Invitae (NVTA), which he views as a long-term positive for the latter and "another building block for Invitae's strategy to make genetic testing more widely available and more easily reimbursed." Other labs named to the preferred network include LabCorp (LH), Quest Diagnostics (DGX), and BioReference and GeneDx, which are both part of Opko (OPK), the analyst noted. UnitedHealthcare's current network includes NeoGenomics (NEO) and he doesn't anticipate any impact to NeoGenomics from the preferred network launch, added Jackson.
