We use the net present value of our revenue forecast through 2028, apply a 30% probability of success (POS) for avacopan in AAV, a 25% POS for avacopan in C3G, a 3x price/sales multiple, and use our estimated fully diluted year end 2018 net cash of $2.58/ share to arrive at our price target. Our P/S multiple of 3x is in-line with ChemoCentryx’s peers that range between 2-5x.”
