The FDA has stated that it will issue a verdict on the approval of Ruconest for prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema (HAE) by 21 September. Following this news, we are bringing forward our forecast for the timing of first post-approval revenues in prophylaxis from 2019 to Q4 2018. We also lower our discount rate for future prophylaxis revenues to reflect the increased probability of approval. We now see fair value for the share at €1.90 (previously: €1.70). We maintain our Buy recommendation.
