“We recently spent some time with Summit (SMMT) management on the road meeting with investors. We were pleasantly surprised at the upbeat tone with a short-/mid-term financing overhang removed due to an investment by a savvy biotech investor. With SMMT management eagerly looking forward to core asset ridinilazole’s two phase 3 clinical trials patient enrollment accelerating (first patient dosed today), we spent some time on the emerging Discuva platform and its potential advantages in infectious disease drug development. While we stay neutral, we look for continuing management execution to evolve our views.”
