Amicus Therapeutics

Amicus Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:FOLD) is a biopharmaceutical engaged in developing novel, first-in-class treatments for a broad range of human genetic diseases, with a focus on delivering new benefits to individuals with lysosomal storage diseases.

On Monday, the company provided updates and detailed the statistical analysis plan for its second Phase 3 study of the oral small molecule pharmacological chaperone migalastat HCl monotherapy for Fabry patients with amenable mutations. “The 18-month primary treatment period is now complete and top-line data from Study 012 are expected in the third quarter of 2014. If successful, Study 012 will trigger the process for European regulatory approval of migalastat as a monotherapy for Fabry patients with amenable mutations,” the company said in a statement.

For the first quarter of 2014, the company reported net loss of $15.9 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to a net loss of $17.5 million, or $0.35 per share, in the same quarter of 2013. It reduced total operating expenses to $16.1 million, compared to $17.3 million for the first quarter 2013 due to decreases in personnel and contract research costs. For full-year 2014, the company continues to expect net cash spend between $54 million and $59 million. The current cash position is projected to fund operations into the second half of 2015.

Amicus Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:FOLD) has market cap of $256.7 million. Shares of the company jumped by 19.46% on Tuesday, hitting $3.99. It has a 52 week high of $4.30 and a 52 week low of $1.77. Analysts have the consensus average target price of $4.00 for the stock.
