[ August 24, 2013 | Author: Admin | Weather: | Mood: normal]

Allergan (NYSE: AGN  ) announced today that the Food and Drug Administration issued a complete response letter for Levadex, an inhalable drug that treats migraines. The company had warning of the FDA’s concerns — which focused not on safety issues but on the drug’s manufacturing process — and has worked to address these problems.

What does this new CRL mean for Levadex’s future?

Solving through acquisition
An inspection had turned up a quality issue at the Exemplar Pharma-owned facility that filled the Levadex canisters. So Allergan purchased Exemplar for approximately $20 million and installed its own people for better oversight. The CRL expressed problems with the manufacturing of the completed canisters, but Allergan says the company has already responded and awaits the FDA’s review.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Louis]

    Majesco Entertainment (NASDAQ: COOL) is an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, developing a wide range of titles for Sony’s PlayStation, Microsoft’s Xbox and Nintendo’s WII systems. On June 7, COOL announced that it had signed a contract with the NBA to begin development of an original video-game basketball franchise. The stock rose an impressive 32% over the next five trading days while the broader market sold off.

    However, the stock is down today after reporting weaker-than-expected second-quarter earnings last night, missing consensus earnings estimates by 2 cents. Majesco reported net revenues of $32.1 million for the second quarter ended April 30, 2011, compared with $10.9 million reported for the same period in the previous year. The company’s operating income for the second quarter was $5.3 million, compared with an operating loss of $1.6 million reported for the same period in the previous year. So treat this sell- off as a buying opportunity.
