“Our 12-month price target of $18/share is based on an equally weighted composite of (a) $19/share, as a 35x multiple of taxed and diluted FY27 GAAP EPS of $2.82 discounted back to and (b) an NPV of $17/share (discount rate 11.0%, growth rate 2.5%). The assumptions are in-line with the expected PE multiple and discount rate of an early development-stage biotechnology company.”
