Goldman sees Amarin investor focus shifting to 'significant' Europe opportunity » 07:0909/0409/04/20
Goldman Sachs analyst…
Goldman Sachs analyst Paul Choi lowered the firm's price target on Amarin (AMRN) to $8 from $9 and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares after reducing expectations for sales of Vascepa to reflect the court's negative appeal decision. The analyst expects at least one generic product to be launched imminently, potentially as soon as year-end. Hikma Pharmaceuticals (HKMPF) management has disclosed that they are comfortable with their ability to ramp supply and to initiate a launch following the court's decision, Choi tells investors in a research note. While it remains to be seen how Amarin will contend with the entry of generics products into the market, management recently emphasized its willingness to compete on price, adds the analyst. Choi, however, continues to view the market opportunity for Vascepa in Europe as "significant" at $1.3B in peak sales, and he expects investor focus to now shift to Amarin's opportunities outside the U.S.
