09:02 EDTIRWDIronwood earns $15M milestone from Astellas Pharma
Ironwood Pharmaceuticals has earned a $15M development milestone payment from Astellas Pharma Inc., its partner for linaclotide in Japan. This milestone was triggered by Astellasís enrollment of the first patient in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase III clinical trial of linaclotide in adult patients with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation in Japan. Astellas expects to complete the Phase III trial in 2016. Ironwood and Astellas entered into a licensing agreement in 2009 to develop and commercialize linaclotide in Japan for the treatment of IBS-C, chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal conditions. Per the agreement, Astellas paid Ironwood a $30M upfront licensing fee. In addition to the $15M development milestone payment upon enrollment of the first patient in the Phase III trial, the agreement also includes additional development milestone payments that could total up to $30M, consisting of $15M upon filing for regulatory approval in Japan and $15M upon receipt of approval. The agreement also provides for Ironwood to receive royalties which escalate based on sales volume. Astellas also plans to expand its development of linaclotide in Japan and is entering into a Phase II clinical trial with linaclotide in adults with chronic constipation. If approved, the same royalty terms would apply.

Zimmer Holdings announced that it has agreed with the European Commission to extend the deadline for the EC's review of Zimmer's proposed acquisition of Biomet by a "limited number of days" in order to provide the EC with certain additional information.

Zimmer has been working closely with the regulatory authorities to facilitate their review of the pending transaction and is encouraged by the substantial progress that has been made to date in connection with the overall regulatory process. Zimmer continues to expect to close the transaction in the first quarter of 2015," the company said.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told the executives of major Internet companies that he favors a more nuanced solution for regulating the Internet than the one suggested by President Obama, according to The Washington Post. Wheeler said he would "try to split the baby" between the president's proposal and the agenda of Internet executives who don't want the rules to affect their business, the newspaper stated, citing four unnamed sources who attended a meeting with Wheeler. Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Verizon (VZ), Cablevision (CVC) ,and AT&T (T) are major Internet Service Providers. Executives from Google (GOOG) and Yahoo (YHOO) were at the meeting with Wheeler, the newspaper said. . Reference Link

Leerink believes the Supreme Court decision to the King vs. Burwell case carries low earnings risk for Managed Care companies. The case to determine the legality of Exchange subsidies administered by the Federal Government carries less than 2% and 3% of earnings risk for 2014 and 2015 estimates, respectively, Leerink believes. The firm says Humana (HUM) and Cigna (CI) are currently losing money on Exchanges, and thus could benefit from any Federal Exchange membership loss. Leerink lists Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), WellPoint (WLP) and Molina Healthcare (MOH) as being most impacted.

12:24 EDTCMCSAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were modestly higher at midday. The averages opened mixed, but very close to the flat line, and have continued to drift slowly higher from that point. There is little to stand in the way of the marketís drift, as the economic calendar is quiet, the earnings season is winding down, and the most closely watched geopolitical situations are currently status quo. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little of note was on the economic calendar. The Federal Reserve's newly introduced Labor Market Conditions Index was flat at 4 in October. The Fed started updating estimates of the LMCI every month beginning with last month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) advanced about 1% after xxx President Barack Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to implement the "strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality. In response, Verizon (VZ) said it supports the open Internet and continues to believe that the "light-touch regulatory approach in place for the past two decades has been central to the Internetís success," adding that it believes the reclassification Obama called for would "apply 1930s-era utility regulation to the Internet" and be a "radical reversal of course" that would threaten great harm to an open Internet, competition and innovation." A number of Internet Service Providers, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter (CHTR) and Cablevision (CVC), moved lower after Obama weighed in on the hot-button issue. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 22% after the company presented data from the ongoing Phase 2 study of its Hepatitis C virus treatment at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD. Also higher was Dean Foods (DF), which rose more than 13% after the dairy products distributorís third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit outlook, surpassed analystsí consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier (RYN), which dropped 13% after management determined that there was a material weakness in the company's internal controls, restated certain previously made financial statements, and cut its dividend reflecting expectations of reduced cash available for distribution due to lower expected annual harvest levels. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 18.55, or 0.11%, to 17,592.48, the Nasdaq was up 10.77, or 0.23%, to 4,643.30, and the S&P 500 was up 4.01, or 0.2%, to 2,035.93.
