“Our Buy rating and $40 price target on shares of Audentes are based on sum-of-the-parts analysis of the company’s pipeline. We value the XLMTM commercial opportunity at $21/share, and CN at $19/share, each of which are based on a 5x P/ S multiple on peak sales of roughly $579M (XLMTM peak sales of about $300M and CN peak sales of approximately $279M in FY2025), discounted at 10% over an 8-year period. Our 5x P/S multiple is below the lower end of historic M&A within the sector (typically in the range of 7-9x).”
