McCarthy observed:

“On 8/9, Intec reported 2Q19 with a net loss of ($10M) and ended the period with $21.6M in cash on the balance sheet. Operating expenses are expected to be reduced with the P3 trial in Parkinson’s disease now over. The company is evaluating the data for AP-CD/LD to determine what the next steps may be. While the P3 trial outcome was a disappointment, it’s worth noting that the delivery technology that is the foundation of Intec as a company, did deliver the levodopa as it was supposed to. In addition, there are subgroup data that suggest trial design could be different and potentially have success, in our view. Nonetheless, it’s too early to tell and as we await more clarity, we remain Hold rated.”
