08:30 EDTJNJAchillion price target lowered to $16 from $25 at Leerink
Leerink says Achillion's deal with Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) increases the probability that it will be a competitive commercial-stage player in hepatitis C. The firm believes the collaboration limits share downside as well as upside by making the "home-run scenario of great combo data leading to an acquisition less likely." It lowered its price target for Achillion shares to $16 and keeps an Outperform rating on the name.

16:10 EDTJNJAchillion enters into collaboration for HCV with Janssen
Achillion (ACHN) announced that it has entered into a worldwide license and collaboration arrangement with Janssen Pharmaceuticals, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), to develop and commercialize one or more of Achillion's lead hepatitis C virus, or HCV, assets which include ACH-3102, ACH-3422, and sovaprevir. Under the terms of the agreement, Achillion will grant Janssen an exclusive, worldwide license to develop and, upon regulatory approval, commercialize HCV products and regimens containing one or more of Achillion's HCV assets. Achillion is eligible to receive a number of payments based upon achievement of specified development, regulatory and sales milestones. Achillion is also eligible to receive tiered royalty percentages between mid-teens and low-twenties based upon future worldwide sales. Janssen will be responsible for all of the development costs within the collaboration and all subsequent costs related to commercialization of the HCV assets. A key objective of the collaboration will be to develop a short-duration, highly effective, pan-genotypic, oral regimen for the treatment of HCV. An initial regimen that will be explored will feature Achillion's ACH-3102, a second-generation NS5A inhibitor currently in Phase 2 clinical studies that has been granted Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in combination with an NS3/4A HCV protease inhibitor plus an NS5B HCV polymerase inhibitor from the collaboration. Additionally, in an equity transaction separate to the exclusive license and collaboration arrangement, Johnson & Johnson Innovation JJDC, Inc. will invest $225M in Achillion and, in return, receive approximately 18.4M newly issued, unregistered shares of Achillion at a price of $12.25 per share. The transactions, including the equity sale, are subject to customary closing conditions, including termination or expiration of any applicable waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. Transitional clinical development and technology transfer activities under the collaboration are expected to take place over the next several months.
