Summary of Highlights
Kadimastem published an immediate report on October 9, 2018. The company reported on the world's first transplantation of embryonic stem cells and the completion of 5 patients' enrollment for Cohort A. The very success of the implantation is an initial confirmation of the safety of cellular therapy:
In our view, this means confirming our assessment of the progress of the clinical trial. The expected results of the experiment in mid-2019 are known and included in our economic model. However, the recruitment of 5 patients and successful transplantation increases the probability of success of the entire clinical trial. We will examine the continued recruitment of patients and analyze it in our upcoming quarterly report.
Thus, we raise our valuation for the company to NIS 69 million (our previous estimate was NIS 52 million), at a target price of NIS 1.03 to NIS 1.21; Average of NIS 1.12.
