Vertex confirms Northern Ireland offer accepted for cystic fibrosis medicines

Vertex Pharmaceuticals confirms that the Regional Pharmaceutical Procurement Service in Northern Ireland has accepted an offer for access to all currently licensed Vertex cystic fibrosis medicines and any future indications of these medicines under the same terms as the recently announced agreement with NHS England. "This means that once the contract is finalized, patients with CF in Northern Ireland ages 2 years and older who have two copies of the F508del mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator gene will have access to ORKAMBI and CF patients ages 12 years and older who either have two copies of the F508del mutation or one copy of the F508del mutation and a copy of one of the other 14 licensed mutations will have access to SYMKEVI in combination with ivacaftor. We will support the arrangements being put in place to ensure clinicians will be able to prescribe to eligible patients within the next few weeks. The agreement also offers expanded access to KALYDECO to include people ages 18 years and older who have the R117H mutation and those patients ages 12 months and older who have one of the nine licensed gating mutations," the company said.

Outperform
Baird 'incrementally positive' on Vertex after NHS agreement
Baird analyst Brian Skorney reiterated an Outperform rating and $210 price target on Vertex Pharmaceuticals, saying he is "incrementally positive" following the announcement of a reimbursement agreement with England's NHS. Skorney noted that Vertex estimates that England represents as much as roughly 10% of the global prevalent cystic fibrosis patient population. Given the high prevalence of cystic fibrosis in the U.K., the analyst believes that sales of Vertex's portfolio in these markets should provide a tailwind to estimates moving forward. Skorney added that he anticipates the company will provide more color on the financial implications of the deal on its quarterly earnings call next week.

Crispr deal with Vertex could fuel takeover speculation, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Amanda Murphy said Vertex's (VRTX) decision to exercise its options to in-license three additional targets for development from Crispr Therapeutics (CRSP) "could fuel speculation" that the latter could be a Vertex takeout target. In addition, the company's business update and Q3 results highlight the progress being made across the company's pipeline, said Murphy, who keeps a Buy rating and $59 price target on Crispr shares.

The analyst is positive on the company's high growth rate, with a 5-year earnings growth of 17.7% vs. the U.S. Pharma mean of 6.2%. Karnauskas contends that in the current challenging market, predictable growth names like Vertex may perform better.
