MEI Pharma Gets a Buy Rating from Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer analyst Leah R. Cann maintained a Buy rating on MEI Pharma (NASDAQ: MEIP) today and set a price target of $4.50. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $2.53.

Cann commented:

“We have expected that ME-401 will advance from phase Ib to a phase III study or a registration quality phase II after phase Ib data are available in mid-2018, which is now confirmed. We anticipate this could lead to ME-401 being filed with FDA in 2021. Today’s announced financing transaction supports our outlook for the timing of a registrational study for ME-401, and we continue to anticipate it could launch in 2022 with sales of $620 million by 2023. ME-401 is one of four development-stage assets in MEI Pharma’s portfolio and is the second most advanced.”
