Edison Expands North American Healthcare Sector Coverage With Initiation of Coverage on Bellus Health
Date:5/31/2013

LONDON, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Edison Investment Research, a leading international investment research firm, announces the initiation of full coverage of Bellus Health (TSX: BLU), a Canadian pharmaceutical company developing drugs for amyloid-related diseases.

Edison has recently published a comprehensive report examining the investment merits of Bellus Health, focusing on the company's lead programme, Kiacta, currently in a pivotal Phase III trial for amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis, an orphan drug indication affecting up to 50,000 patients worldwide. In the report, Pivotal play in rare kidney disease, Edison's Canadian-based healthcare analyst, Pooya Hemami , argues that Bellus' investment case is underpinned by Kiacta's 60% probability of success in the pivotal study (based on positive trends in a previous Phase II/III study), the potential for premium pricing and a seven- to-10-year orphan drug market exclusivity period. With the Kiacta trial results not expected until 2017, a long-term view is required, but importantly, Bellus is fully funded until the data read out. Based on a risk-adjusted NPV analysis, Edison values Bellus at C$31m, or C$0.74 per share (fully diluted).
