16:45 EDTLLY, ANTHAnthera Pharmaceuticals acquires Sollpura from Eli Lilly
Anthera Pharmaceuticals (ANTH) announced that it has acquired Sollpura, a novel investigational Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy from Eli Lilly and Company (LLY). Sollpura is a soluble, stable and non-porcine enzyme product intended for the treatment of patients with low digestive enzyme levels, or Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, due to cystic fibrosis, and potentially other diseases. EPI is characterized by low absorption of fat and other nutrients due to a reduction in digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas. EPI is a major cause of serious nutritional deficiencies and long-term development issues, particularly in children with cystic fibrosis. EPI is estimated to afflict more than 150,000 patients in the United States alone, with more than US$600M spent on enzyme replacement therapy annually. Anthera intends to sublicense all rights, obligations, and intellectual property for the development and commercialization of Sollpura to Alkira Therapeutics. In the future, Alkira will secure appropriate funding as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anthera to advance Sollpura into a phase 3 pivotal registration trial as agreed with the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2013. It is intended that Alkira will make all future contingent milestone payments under the license agreement upon product approval and on certain annual sales achievements and will make royalty payments on any product sales after achieving certain sales thresholds of cumulative net sales of Sollpura.

14:35 EDTLLYEarnings Watch: Lilly to report Q1 results amid patent expirations
Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Lilly is a global pharmaceutical manufacturer that also has an animal health business segment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 77c on revenue of $4.62B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-99c on revenue of $4.54B-$4.7B. LAST QUARTER: Eli Lilly reported fourth quarter EPS of 75c, compared to consensus estimates of 74c, on revenue of $5.12B against estimates of $5.2B. The company said it sees fiscal year 2015 EPS of $3.10-$3.20 on revenue of $19.5B-$20B. Lilly's CEO John Lechleiter commented on the quarter, "While Lilly's fourth quarter 2014 results continue to reflect the impact of patent expirations, we are moving to a period of growth led by diabetes, oncology and animal health. Despite the loss of significant revenue for Cymbalta and Evista following the expiration of our U.S. patents, we saw strong performance from many other products. At the same time, we made excellent progress with our innovation-based strategy, and we continue to advance our pipeline." STREET RESEARCH: On March 25, Suntrust raised its price target on Lilly shares to $95 from $80. After meeting with Eli Lilly's management, SunTrust said it expects the company's oncology and diabetes sales to double over the next five years. The firm is upbeat about the short-term outlook of the company's diabetes treatment, and says that its late stage autoimmune, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular treatments are advancing, while its Alzheimer's programs remain underappreciated. SunTrust said it expects the company's earnings CAGR to be in the mid teens between 2015-2020. It kept a Buy rating on Lilly shares. PRICE ACTION: Lilly shares are relatively flat since the company's last earnings report on January 30, and are trading up fractionally to $72.40 in midday trading ahead of Thursday's earnings release.
