“We are initiating coverage of Eyenovia, Inc. with a Buy rating and 12-month price target of $12 per share. Eyenovia is a late-stage developer of proprietary topical delivery of micro- dose formulations of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) used for ocular applications. The company’s piezo-print technology, built into an electronic delivery system, allows targeted delivery of 6-8 microliter (μl) of therapeutic fluid that coats the ocular surface within 80 milliseconds. In comparison, conventional eye drops typically overdose with 30-50μl per drop. Therefore, Eyenovia’s micro-dosing products are able to reduce exposure to preservatives and pharmaceutical ingredients by over 75%, thus alleviating local ocular adverse events as well as systemic side effects while retaining efficacy.”
