Wang stated, “We remain positive on the shares—Triferic launch is still expected in July/August time frame. Management is bullish on Triferic roll-out and expects a short conversion time (from IV iron) given the simplicity of using Triferic and the clinical/cost-saving benefits. We continue to expect Triferic launch to be strong, replacing IV iron as an iron replacement therapy to maintain hemoglobin in HD CKD patients. Triferic has geographic and label expansion opportunities, potentially offering upside to our valuation.”
