Edison issues update on Silence Therapeutics (SLN)
The year 2019 marked a major turnaround for Silence, as it both ramped up its development activity, with the advancement of SLN124 for iron overload and SLN360 for cardiovascular disease, and made massive partnering efforts. We have seen the fruits of this business development in the form of three partnering deals with major pharmaceutical companies Mallinckrodt, Takeda and AstraZeneca. Together all these efforts demonstrate the value of the company's siRNA platform and intellectual property.
Our valuation for Silence is largely unchanged at £461.2m or 558p/share, following a slight adjustment of less than £1m (£461.9m or 559p previously). This adjustment is due to slightly lower expected revenue from the Onpattro royalty stream, based on the company's reports (£73k in 2019). We expect the company to require £85m (up from £80m, and recorded in 2023) in additional capital to reach profitability in 2027.
