Nabriva Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NBRV) PT Set at $7.00 by HC Wainwright

HC Wainwright set a $7.00 price target on Nabriva Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NBRV) in a research note released on Sunday morning, The Fly reports. The brokerage currently has a buy rating on the biotechnology company’s stock.

“We employ a rNPV valuation model, driven by U.S. sales of: (1) lefamulin for CABP through 2028 (peak sales $460M); and (2) CONTEPO for cUTI through 2028 (peak sales $205M). We utilize a 15.0% discount rate for all cash flows, with zero terminal value after 2028, to arrive at our $7 price target (representing risk-adjusted per share values of about $6.50 for lefamulin and about $0.50 for CONTEPO). Risks to the attainment of our PT include failure to obtain FDA approval, unforeseen safety and/or tolerability issues, commercial sales trajectory meaningfully below then consensus expectations, and the dilution to current shareholders from additional equity offering(s).”,” HC Wainwright’s analyst commented.
