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. DYOR

Yes, but at least BTG were locked into the t/o before the Woodford stuff hit the fan, or BTG would have sold heavily by him as it was a liquid stock and the share price would have tanked.

I think it is extremely unlikely that another bidder will surface until after BSX have published the Offer Document which is due by 31 January unless BSX request a second extension, but I can see no reason why this would be required.

IF there was someone else interested in BTG, a bidder would want to see the full details of the BSX offer before going public with their interest, so I think that the most likely window will be between the Offer document being published and the first deadline.

However, IF anyone else was interested, they will have a battle on their hands as BSX speaks very highly of BTG. Here are some interesting snippets from the Boston Scientific presentation at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, the CEO made the following comments about BTG:

“we have Varithena coming …”

“we are very excited about this company, this is one we analysed in depth for close to a year before we finally come(sic) to agreement with BTG … amazing synergies … will deliver significant shareholder value … this is an ideal, I hate to say, a perfect fit for our PI business”

“it hasn’t closed yet so … upon closing the gem in that is the interventional business … Therasphere is probably the biggest gem within the entire platform … unique differentiation … China represents the largest market opportunity in the world and there are zero sales there today …. Upon closing we will be able to discuss more our plans for China but clearly there are no sales represented with BTG today and represents a significant opportunity, we have a lot of capability in that market.”

“Tuck-in acquisitions … our capability in … therapeutic cancer is quite unique and we a building a sizeable business there post closing BTG”

It seems clear that BSX are VERY KEEN on BTG, if only another company recognised the value there too …?

BTG plc



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.

Woodford has subsequently sold 16,200,000 BTG Shares which were subject to the Woodford Irrevocable (the "Transferred Shares") to Sand Grove Capital Management LLP acting in its capacity as discretionary investment manager on behalf of Sand Grove Opportunities Master Fund Ltd, Sand Grove Tactical Fund LP and Investment Opportunities SPC for the account of Investment Opportunities 2 Segregated Portfolio ("Sand Grove"), in accordance with paragraph 2.2(c) of the Woodford Irrevocable. Therefore, Sand Grove has provided an irrevocable undertaking (the "Sand Grove Irrevocable") on substantially the same terms as the Woodford Irrevocable in respect of the Transferred Shares, save that the provisions in the Woodford Irrevocable permitting transfer of BTG Shares in circumstances, other than to the extent required by law, are not contained in the Sand Grove Irrevocable.

The total number of BTG Shares which is subject to irrevocable undertakings to support the offer remains unchanged.

The Sand Grove Irrevocable (as well as a copy of this announcement) will be uploaded to the Boston Scientific website (hxxp:// shortly.

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

BTG reaches settlement regarding CroFab® patent litigation

10 October 2014
London, UK, 10 October 2014: BTG plc (LSE: BTG) today announces that it has settled its United States patent infringement complaint against Instituto Bioclon (Bioclon) of Mexico and Rare Disease Therapeutics, Inc. (RDT) of Nashville, Tennessee. The case was filed by BTG with the International Trade Commission in October 2013 based upon the unlawful and unauthorised importation and sale into the US of certain crotalid antivenom pharmaceutical compositions that infringe one or more claims of BTG’s US Patent No. 8,048,414 (“the ‘414 patent”).

Under the terms of the agreement, BTG would allow Bioclon to begin selling crotalid antivenom relying on BTG’s 414 patent from October 2018, subject to Bioclon receiving regulatory approval for its antivenom product. BTG will receive a single-digit royalty on sales of any Bioclon product relying on the 414 patent until the end of the exclusivity period in 2028. In addition, Bioclon will withdraw its legal challenge to the validity of the 414 patent. BTG has agreed to reimburse Bioclon USD $6 million for its legal fees and costs incurred.

Louise Makin, Chief Executive Officer at BTG, said: “Settling this litigation is good for our business as it removes uncertainty for our investors and other stakeholders. Most importantly, it allows us to concentrate on what we do best, delivering a first-class treatment and supporting our customers and their patients by continuing to invest in a product that has treated over 40,000 people.”

SP - Its been manipulated by algo trading by investment bankers , cause BTG may do bigger deal than today next week paying with stock.
I remember how BTG share price in 2008 went from 90p to 240p in 2 months and they bought Protherics in all shares deal for 65p and BTG shares after deal went down to 113 p .
Some thoughts what we can expect :
1 Varithena - good results or bad results - not before next update october- november - until now only weak numbers - I called 3 doctors from and nobody was happy with demand of Varithena and I tried to find how many doctors offer Varithena but found only 7 doctors in east usa and in west btg site didnt work properly or they just dont have anymore doctors in Florida and California. Try to go to and it will bring you to btg site where is link ‚‘ find doctor near you „“
2 Btg buys competition ( Anavip ? ) or makes merger or makes competitive pricing for snake vaccine.
3 No new products in research and developement
4 May sell bead business( not profitable until now) to Chinese
5 Get bid for whole BTG - what premium buyers are going to offer ?
6 New product ( last purchase announced on Friday) first results end of next year.
Bottom line - no double digit growth to expect like promised by Louise .What share price to expect ?

Only strong recommendation is from Numis with target price 840 p, but Numis had strong buy recommendation for Vectura with target price 240 p and now Vectura is 74 p . All other recommendations is hold.
All trading last 2 weeks were algorythme programms using up buy momentum - for how long ? Or will they do reverse algo to sell programm ?
I sold most of my holdings in 6-6.9 £ range and will try tomorrow to sell above 5.7 £ 70% of my remaining holding . We may see testing last month lows around 5 € imo . May be not ?
Any thoughts ? Or advise ?

The Judgement from the Vistoguard case makes very interesting reading if you have the time.

There is a lot of information in there suggesting serious questionable management practices, NONE of which reflect well on BTG.

I hope someone is able to ask the Board to comment about this at the AGM. It surprises me that the Chairman hasn't taken action yet.


Here are just a few direct quotes from the Judge's verdict:

Moody also understood that the oncology sales force was too small, and he continued to advocate for more support for Vistogard. In January 2016, BTG fired him. When he ran into some Wellstat executives, Moody confided that he had been fired for “pushing too hard for Vistogard internally.”

I find that BTG falsified its model to conceal that its sixteen-person sales force could not provide adequate support for Vistogard.

On March 2, 2016, BTG sent Wellstat a seven-year sales forecast. To hide its manipulation of the data, BTG did not send the underlying spreadsheets. BTG only disclosed the annual revenue numbers. BTG claimed that its model forecasted $39.8 million in revenue in the third year and $56 million in revenue in the seventh year. These statements were knowingly and intentionally false.

On July 5, 2016, a BTG employee reported that “the existing reps are already very frustrated at their lack of training on Vistogard, and the new ones never had any formal training on Voraxaze. I don’t understand why [BTG management is] unwilling to train the new reps appropriately.”; The answer is that BTG had not supported Vistogard adequately and was trying to cover up its failure to meet its obligations.

Wellstat correctly points out that BTG acted aggressively and took disingenuous positions during the litigation. In discovery, BTG refused to produce documents relating to BTG’s strategic shift away from specialty pharmaceuticals or provide a witness pursuant to Court of Chancery Rule 30(b)(6) on the topic, claiming that the subject was not relevant. BTG also objected to Makin being identified as a custodian for documents, claiming that she did not possess relevant information. These positions could not have been asserted in good faith, yet BTG forced Wellstat to prevail on a motion to compel before BTG complied with its discovery obligations.

Equally concerning, at trial BTG presented a misleading demonstrative regarding the calculation of Wellstat’s damages.
