MannKind’s positive take on interim Phase III data for its inhaled insulin Afrezza has a big sweetener tied to it. The Valencia, CA-based MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) has picked up a much-needed $40 million financing from Deerfield as a result of the data readout, the second of four tranches slated to provide MannKind with $160 million total. “The second tranche of convertible notes was subject to the achievement of Phase III data from studies 171 and 175 that met the primary efficacy endpoints of these studies and did not show any adverse safety issue that would reasonably be expected to prevent approval of Afrezza,” MannKind says in a release.

Zacks restated their neutral rating on shares of MannKind Corporation (NASDAQ:MNKD) in a report released on Wednesday, StockRatingsNetwork.com reports. Zacks currently has a $7.25 price objective on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “MannKind’s second quarter 2013 net loss of $0.16 per share was narrower than the year-ago loss of $0.23 but wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of $0.15. We expect investor focus to remain on Afrezza. MannKind completed both its late-stage studies (Affinity 1 and Affinity 2) on Afrezza and expects results from the studies soon. The company plans to resubmit the NDA for Afrezza later in the year. However, we remain concerned about the company’s over dependence on Afrezza.
