“Meetings highlight view that late-stage assets are underappreciated. We hosted meetings with the CEO in the Midwest last week. Investors he met with expressed interest in Xyrem, of course, but the bulk of the questions centered around the pipeline. A common theme was that JZP-110 may be underestimated by the Street. We also spoke with some investors who seem to be gaining appreciation for the potential of the low-sodium oxybate formulations. Vyxeos approval could be around the corner. The PDUFA date for Vyxeos is September 30, and management commented that Breakthrough-designated drugs have been approved before the statutory date.”
