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.

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
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: Surprised the Amazon deal did not lift the BTG share price.
aphrodites: Having suffered a DVT myself a couple of years ago in my right leg and with a vein from my knee to my groin now blocked for life, I am probably more aware than most about the advantages the treatment with the EKOS system will provide to the medical world. The present treatment to unblock veins is very primitive and the success rate very, very low indeed. The damage caused to the valves in veins is irreparable unless the blockage is cleared very quickly. The market for the treatment of DVTs is massive and contrary to general opinion the condition is not restricted just to the elderly. I am reliably informed by an air hostess that a young lady of 34 y.o.a suffered a DVT on a flight and actually died on the plane. DVT's are very common indeed. I did have the statistics somewhere but cannot put my hands on them. Maybe someone else can provide. The announcement today has in my opinion far greater implications to the BTG share price than is fully appreciated and I am surprised the price is not back over £7 and moving higher. But it is a Friday. Obviously we will have to wait for the analysts to digest the news and get the blue pencils out next week. Have a good weekend everyone. Onwards and upwards.
spyder: Here are my thoughts on what is happening with the BTG share price, for what they are worth. I suggested in posts to this board several times in the last few months, and most recently at around the time of the results, that the BTG share price was approaching very dangerous chart territory. If it failed to rally, then there would be no support for the shares going forward. Unfortunately, I didn’t “put my money where my mouth was”, because subsequent events proved my comments to be correct and the shares have dropped approximately 20% in the last month or so. I’m afraid the news doesn’t get any better, as, again looking at the chart, this share only has one way to go, and it will continue falling. There could be support at £6.00, and again at £5.00, but I won’t be around to see £5.00 tested if that were to happen and I have an opportunity to exit. To those of you who think charts are nonsense and it is all about the fundamentals, I say that the charts have called it absolutely right so far, in spite of broadly unchanged fundamentals. Indeed, looking at BTGs own forecasts, and almost universally those of the analysts, the outlook remains a positive as ever, so why the freefall? And where are the value buyers? The next few weeks will be a classic test of predicting share price by chart vs fundamentals. If the chart wins, we are heading lower, perhaps significantly. If the fundamentals are to be believed, then value investors should pile in before long. My own strategy is to continue holding, because my investment timeframe is 5 to 10 years, so perhaps one day this will be seen as just another pothole on the road to the FTSE 100. HOWEVER, if the shares fall to £5.80 and linger for more than a day or so, I’m out. Unfortunately I have seen too many extremely successful shares tank for no reason given the fundamentals, only to see that the fundamentals turned out to be hot air. The market (and the chart) usually (but not always!) knows best.
