  • 11/6/2017 – Dermira had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald. They now have a $45.00 price target on the stock. They wrote, “Positives from the quarter: 1) DERM and UCB (Not Covered) today announced that the companies have agreed to end their development and commercialization agreement for Cimzia in psoriasis so that DERM can focus on the potential launch of DRM04, which is expected in 2H18; we believe that this was the right move for DERM and did not think the Street attributed much value to Cimzia. 2) During the quarter, DERM announced a licensing agreement with Roche (Not Covered) and Genentech (Not Covered) to obtain worldwide rights to Lebrikizumab, a monoclonal antibody targeting interleukin (IL-13), for atopic dermatitis and other indications; we think this opportunity is underappreciated. 3) DERM presented glycopyrronium tosylate (formerly DRM04) data at the 26th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress from September 13-17. 4) DERM announced that the DRM04 filing has been accepted by the FDA, with a PDUFA date of 6/30/18. 5) DERM completed patient enrollment in two DRM01 Phase 3 trials for the treatment of acne vulgaris. Finally, 6) DERM ended the quarter with $662.9MM in cash and equivalents, which should fund operations through 1H19.””
