10:50 EDTBIIBBiogen weakness attributed to Forward Pharma IPO filing
Shares of Biogen Idec (BIIB) came off their earlier highs and moved into negative ground in early trading, with some attributing the move lower to another pharmaceutical company, Forward Pharma (FWP), filing its registration statement with the SEC relating to a proposed initial public offering and reporting that Joel Sendek has been appointed CFO. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Forward Pharma focuses on a proprietary formulation of dimethyl fumarate, or DMF, for the treatment of multiple sclerosis. DMF is the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient, or API, found in Tecfidera, which Biogen Idec began selling for the treatment of RRMS following approval by the FDA in March 2013 and approval by the European Commission in February 2014, Forward Pharma indicated in its IPO filing. In addition to its filing, Forward Pharma announced this morning that it has hired Joel Sendek from Stifel Financial, where he served as Managing Director, Biotechnology and led the firm's healthcare equity research group. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Biogen are down fractionally in mid-morning trading after being up over 1% soon after today's opening bell.
