We believe that the stock currently trades at a significant discount as its lead asset, Mektovi+Braftovi, still appears underappreciated by investors. Based on our discussion with KOLs and our market analysis, we believe that Array’s MEK/BRAFi combination has a best- in-class profile and is well-positioned commercially in BRAF-mutant melanoma and clinically in BRAF-mutant colorectal cancer.”
