Recent News & Updates
Aurinia Pharmaceuticals: Potential Blockbuster Justifies Big Pharma M&A Interest
Aurinia won approval for Lupus Nephritis therapy LUPKYNIS in January this year, causing its share price to reach a high of $19. Analysts believe the drug can achieve >$1bn per annum sales, and longer term, $2bn may not be unrealistic. That has created a slew of recent M&A rumours involving GSK, BMY, Roche, and Novartis - although a $250m mixed shelf filing suggests mgmt. may want to go it alone. The share price rose as high as $33 on the speculation - any acquisition could be at >$5bn, or ~$40 per share. I look at the pros and cons of buying Aurinia stock at current price of $20, market cap ~$2.7bn. I'd prefer an investment at a price closer to $15 per share.
