06:41 EDTNVSArray BioPharma shares attractive at current levels, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says shares of Array BioPharma are attractive at current levels ahead of Phase III data readouts for binimetinib in melanoma, selumetinib in Kras-mutant lung, thyroid and uveal melanoma, and filanesib in multiple myeloma. Piper sees the biggest overhang on Array shares as being the financing requirement and it notes that binimetinib could be returned to the company from current partner Novartis (NVS). Nonetheless, it feels investors should take a "serious look" at Array and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock with a $9 price target.

07:03 EDTNVSAnacor, Sandoz enter into agreement for commercialization of Kerydin in the U.S.
Anacor Pharmaceuticals (ANAC) announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Sandoz, a Novartis (NVS) company, pursuant to which Sandoz will distribute and commercialize Anacorís drug KERYDIN topical solution, 5% in the United States. PharmaDerm, the branded dermatology business of Sandoz, will be responsible for the sales and marketing of KERYDIN. On July 8, Anacor announced that the U.S. FDA approved the New Drug Application for KERYDIN, the first oxaborole antifungal approved for the topical treatment of onychomycosis of the toenails, a fungal infection of the nail and nail bed that affects approximately 35 million people in the United States, according to Podiatry Today. The agreement with Sandoz entitles Anacor to upfront payments totaling $40M and an additional milestone payment of $25M expected to be paid in January 2015. Under the agreement, Sandoz and Anacor will share equally, under a long-term profit-sharing arrangement, the gross profits accrued by Sandoz on sales of KERYDIN, except that in 2015 Anacor will start receiving profit-sharing payments after the first $50M of gross profits have been accrued by Sandoz. The long-term profit-sharing arrangement includes cumulative minimum profit-sharing payments to Anacor in 2016 totaling $45M. Anacor will also have the option to repurchase all rights in KERYDIN from Sandoz on the later of three years from launch or December 31, 2017, at a price to be determined pursuant to the agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Anacor will supply product to Sandoz at cost through Anacorís contract manufacturers, and Sandoz will be responsible for all of its selling, marketing, distribution, general and administrative costs related to the commercialization of KERYDIN. Anacor will hold the NDA and will be responsible for any further development of KERYDIN.

If June average exchange rates prevail for the remainder of the year, the currency impact for the year would be -1% on sales and -3% to -4% on core operating income."
