dp1umb: BargainBob Vectura has been an absolute dog of a share for the last two or three years! I keep topping up when I think they’ve turned the corner only for them to go even lower but hopefully all the bad news is in the share price. A biotech that has definitely turned the corner is silence Therapeutics which has quadrupled in the last month and there should be more to come, but I would say is more of a gamble than vectura but the rewards should be a lot greater if all goes well.

spyder: Very interesting BB. So ... Sand Grove bought 16.2m BTG shares from Woodford. Sand Grove is an ‘event driven’ hedge fund, that is to say, its strategy is to exploit valuation anomalies after a major corporate event such as a bid. Sometimes this will be an equity arbitrage if a perceived mismatch develops between the share price of the buyer and the share price of the seller, but this can’t be the case here as this is an all cash offer. That being the case, SG have spent approximately £134m to make just £1.5m or a 1.3% return. This is a tiny profit and does not reflect the risk of the deal failing to complete. I think we can draw 2 conclusions from this; 1) SG thinks the deal will definitely complete. 2) SG must be betting that another bidder will appear. Of course, they could be wrong, and their strategy will be to buy multiple bid targets and hope that one or two will receive additional offers. Their investment in Laing Infrastructure didn’t work, as this sold after just one bid, I wonder if they will have better luck with BTG?
bargainbob: The parts may be greater than the sum . TIDMBTG RNS Number : 7475J Boston Scientific Corporation 07 December 2018 NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART IN, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, INTO OR FROM ANY JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OR REGULATIONS OF THAT JURISDICTION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 7 December 2018 RECOMMENDED CASH OFFER for BTG plc ("BTG") by Bravo Bidco Limited ("Bravo Bidco") a newly incorporated entity indirectly wholly-owned by Boston Scientific Corporation ("Boston Scientific") Update on irrevocable undertaking given by Woodford Investment Management Limited ("Woodford") On 20 November 2018 the boards of Boston Scientific, Bravo Bidco and BTG announced the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Bravo Bidco for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of BTG at a price of 840 pence in cash per BTG Share (the "Rule 2.7 Announcement"). Defined terms in this announcement shall, except where defined in this announcement or the context requires otherwise, have the meanings given to them in the Rule 2.7 Announcement. Included in the Rule 2.7 Announcement were details of irrevocable undertakings to support the offer including that received from Woodford, which gave an irrevocable undertaking in respect of 21,253,256 BTG Shares (the "Woodford Irrevocable"). On 5 December 2018, Boston Scientific and Bravo Bidco announced that Woodford had sold: (i) 600,000 BTG Shares which were subject to the Woodford Irrevocable to Anavio Capital Partners LLP acting in its capacity as Investment Manager of Anavio Capital Event Driven UCITS Fund; and (ii) 400,000 BTG Shares which were subject to the Woodford Irrevocable to Anavio Capital Master Fund Limited, in each case in accordance with paragraph 2.2(c) of the Woodford Irrevocable.

a1ord53: I think that news in October were better than on 13 th of November and share price moved down. And last week and on 13 th share price were like always manipulated.Its why it going back to reality 5-6 £ range. RBC again issued underperform with target price 490 p Varithena value negative CroFab is going to loose 70% revenues due to price reduction Zytiga will halved income Beads no growth anymore according dame Louise( she said growth with market) Who sold at 690-670!should feel very lucky I read transcript of meeting with analysts and answers of dame and cfo were not precise - more likely than concrete.
dp1umb: Why can’t investing be more simple? Positive news = change of momentum = rise in share price. Simple!
bargainbob: What to compare on Tuesday. 4 October 2018 | 09:45am - Healthcare company BTG guided product sales higher Thursday after including its varicose vein treatment Varithena in its oncology and vascular portfolio. The company said it expected product sales for the combined portfolio to grow by 15%-to-17% this year, up from its previous forecast of 13%-to-15%. In pharmaceuticals, following a good first half, BTG said it expected full-year sales to be around the upper end of the guidance range of flat-to-single digit decline. A better-than-expected first-half performance in pharmaceuticals was driven by DigiFab and Voraxaze, and a good performance from CroFab, BTG said. First-half product sales growth was driven by 'good' performance in Interventional Medicine led by strong growth in radiotherapy treatment TheraSphere and the cryoablation products, the company said. Varithena was expected to become profitable during the 2019/20 financial year with sales expected to peak in the high tens of millions of dollars. Varithena sales would be included within the Vascular product sales line going forwards, BTG said. The company also announced that Chairman Garry Watts was set to retire. At 9:45am: [LON:BTG] BTG PLC share price was +31p at 590.5p Story provided by
spyder: I don’t think anyone expected J&J to win the patent case and as txi mentions, it was always assumed that a favourable outcome would be a (BIG!) bonus, but the default position was a 31.10.18 expiry. On that basis, the share price on Monday should not be affected, but sentiment probably dictates otherwise. It is curious that J&J still feels so strongly about appealing the decision, but I guess it might be a case of “they would say that wouldn’t they”.
spyder: This is a welcome respite although I wouldn’t get too excited at this stage as, given the time of the year, it seems to me very unlikely that anyone would launch a bid at the beginning of August. As also noted above, clearly he Board had no clue given the recent shares purchase. This could just be a ‘silly season’ Pump and Dump rumour OR I suppose there could be something in it? Looking at the share price action yesterday, it seems clear that the story came out of the US (home of the Pump and Dump!) but, but, but, if there is ever a bidder, they are much more likely to come from the US than anywhere else, and as pointed out above, they will strike when the £/$ exchange rate is low, and when the UK market undervalues the company’s prospects, which it is presently doing - massively. I suspect there are a few companies out there watching... possibly even including J&J?? If they were optimistic about a long term revenue stream from Zytiga, they could buy BTG, close out the royalty stream and sell on the rest - simple but effective arbitrage ...
bargainbob: One of Britain’s most prominent healthcare companies shot to the top of the FTSE 250 amid speculation that it was being considered a takeover target. BTG closed up 6.7 per cent, or 33¼p, at 529½p as rumours spread of preparations for a bid. The company’s share price has tumbled by 30 per cent since the start of the year, a fall that accelerated amid reports of a £102.8 million operating loss for the year to the end of March. BTG took a £144.7 million charge after delays with Pneumrx, its emphysema treatment, which subsequently failed to win backing from a key panel of the US Food and Drug Administration.
bargainbob: From Dave on eye eye eye Im SORRY but my last post should not have been posted, as it wasn’t finished, I must have hit the wrong button before leaving my computer this morning. ---- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reading the judgement posted here on the BB it makes my blood boil ,to read BTG were first approached by wellstadt with their suspicions many years ago but instead of talking to wellstadt, our management decided to instigated a breach of contract law suit against wellstadt instead ,now had the management agreed back then to return to the terms of that agreement ,then none of this would have happened ,and we would still be selling a licenced product for profit. How mad is that ?. I know from my own experience ,the last thing you do is attack a customer ,or a company you are working with, unless your 100% confident they had done something wrong, and that you could prove in a court of law and after talking to the company, to see if you could iron out the difficulties amicably ,but it appears in this case, BTG didn't do that ,and that to me ,that is asking for trouble. What's even more concerning about this, is that control of the sales & marketing budgets were changed after the agreement was signed, and would be detrimental to the launch of wellstedt product, and would break the terms of our contract with wellstadt, yet nobody at BTG saw this as a problem . To me all of this could have been avoided, had the BOD listened to Wellstads grievances in 2015. Had they done that ,then we wouldn’t be losing a product that could have made BTG a very good profit over many years, and for what is said to have been a very little amount of outlay according to the trial notes, and that to me is unforgivable, how this will play out with other clients, or with future clients ,I just don’t know, but as we all know 50% of business is about trust ,and if you lose that in the USA , then you are finished as most medical products in the U.S.A are purchased through a medical insurance syndicate . This whole sorry business shows how bad our marketing has been over the years, it could also explain why other BTG products we have launched in the USA, have also failed to meet expectations, or their growth predictions over the years ,and is something I, and many other posters on this BB have queried on several occasions , well maybe now we have the answer to all those questions ,as It seems to me, BTG either have a poor sales &marketing dept ,or B.T.G, lack the experience in the top echelons of the company, when it comes to sales &marketing . I know from my own experience in manufacturing and retail that most companies in UK today employ professional sales and marketing people ,as they know how to support a team of sales people and also know how to distribute a sales team across an area in order to maximise sales, they are also aware of the importance of marketing when launching a new product ,it’s their expertise of the market that is key to the success or failure of a product ,so if ,but if our management team can’t do that with in a set budget then heads should roll, I also believe ,that any shares received by the BOD through the BTG share initiative, should now be returned/or the cash repaid to the company, as they obviously failed in their responsibilities to the protect B.T.G shareholders profits, and the good name of the company ,But had the BOD acted upon wellstadt complaint back in 2015 things might be different now . Obviously we will never know the full story of what happened, or who was to blame for this mess ,but this sorry tale could have been soughed out amicably in 2015, and hopefully it still can be, as the judge has given both parties 21 days to find a settlement before ordering costs and payment . BE HAPPY DAVE ..
