Asian Market Update:…

Asian Market Update: 10-year Treasury yields dropped -6.7 bp to 0.690% overnight as warnings of very high death tolls from U.S. President Trump hit sentiment at the start of the second quarter. U.S. Treasury futures are down -1.7 to 2.2% as players re-adjust growth projections. South Korea managed to keep death rates low with extensive measures, the impact on manufacturing is now starting to become apparent. Like the official PMI China's Caixin manufacturing PMI came in higher than anticipated, highlighting that the manufacturing sector at least can bounce back relatively quickly once restrictions are reduced, although as the WHO warned, the pandemic is far from over in Asia and China is also registering more new infections. South Korea managed to keep death rates low with extensive measures, the impact on manufacturing is now starting to become apparent. Japan PM Abe said the country is not in a situation to declare an emergency now, but others have warned that the point is approaching fast. Meanwhile BoJ's Kuroda admitted that the central bank cannot print money forever. The minutes from the RBA's emergency meeting meanwhile showed that members see the cash rate now at the lower bound. Against that background stock markets across Asia traded mixed, with Topix and Nikkei dropping -2.3% and 2.97% respectively and the Hang Seng declined -1.4%. Mainland China bourses meanwhile managed to move higher and the CSI 300 is up 0.5%. The ASX outperformed with a 3.6% rally, but many other indices were also down. The front end WTI future meanwhile is trading at USD 20.35 per barrel.

Jefferies analyst Samad Samana keeps a Buy rating on RingCentral (RNG) shares with a price target of $245, saying the launch of Avaya (AVYA) Cloud Office, or ACO, by RingCentral is a "significant opportunity" for the company that will drive strong growth for years to come. The analyst notes that ACO enables voice calls, team messaging, meetings, conferencing, and file sharing, adding that the deal should also accelerate RingCentral's move internationally as well as upmarket. Samana further notes that because of COVID-19 however, it may take until 2021 before ACO makes any material financial impact on RingCentral.

Ultragenyx (RARE) announced a strategic partnership and non-exclusive license and technology access agreement with Daiichi Sankyo (DSNKY) for Ultragenyx's proprietary AAV-based gene therapy manufacturing technologies. Ultragenyx's HeLa producer cell line platform enables large commercial-scale AAV-based gene therapy product manufacturing that is intended to be highly reproducible, more consistent, and less expensive than other gene therapy manufacturing platforms. In addition, Ultragenyx has developed a proprietary HEK293 transient transfection system for AAV manufacture which is also a subject of the collaboration. Under the license and technology access agreement, Ultragenyx granted Daiichi Sankyo a non-exclusive license to intellectual property, including know-how and patent applications, with respect to its HeLa PCL and HEK293 transient transfection manufacturing technology platforms for AAV-based gene therapy products. The parties will collaborate closely as part of a technology transfer plan to enable Daiichi Sankyo to use the technologies for its internal gene therapy programs. Ultragenyx retains the exclusive right to use its manufacturing technology for its current target indications and additional indications identified now and in the future. Under the terms of the agreements, Daiichi Sankyo will make an upfront payment of $125M and will purchase $75M of Ultragenyx common stock at a price of approximately $60 per share. Daiichi Sankyo will pay an additional $25M upon completion of the technology transfer of the HeLa PCL and HEK293 platforms as well as single-digit royalties on net sales of products manufactured in either system. Daiichi Sankyo will reimburse Ultragenyx for all costs associated with the transfer of the manufacturing technology.

Equinox Gold announces 2020 production and cost guidance of 540,000 to 600,000 ounces of gold at all-in-sustaining costs, or AISC, of $1,000 to $1,060 per oz.

Total consolidated 2020 production, including gold produced by Leagold in 2020 before completion of the merger, is estimated at 615,000 to 680,000 oz of gold. "Equinox Gold had another year of tremendous growth in 2019. The Company advanced its Aurizona mine to production, commenced construction at its Castle Mountain mine and ended 2019 with the announcement of a merger with Leagold to create a premier gold producer with exceptional growth potential," said the company. "With the merger complete, Equinox Gold expects to more than triple its annualized gold production in 2020 and is fully funded to increase production over the next two years to more than one million ounces of gold annually. We also recognize the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential effect on our operations and our guidance for this year. If necessary, we will adjust our expectations as the situation evolves."
