Have been forced to take another look at MVP as the SP has well and truly fallen out of bed (in fact, fallen out of bed, rolled across the room, out onto the landing and is poised rather precariously at the top of the stairs).


The half year was a cracker and full of bullish prognostications, however maybe the result contained a bit more pipline stuffing into the new applications rather than hard repeat orders - no idea, just speculating. Changing of the guard in theCEO's chair never helps sentiment and it always takes the new arrival time to settle in, but that period should be well and truly over by now. Director buying on market recently could be a sign that the business is ok - but may not.


On balance I think things are taking a little longer than expected and maybe the market is anticipating a small(ish) capital raising to firm up the balance sheet and provide funding o accelerate overseas expansion.

Well this has been a slow motion train wreck....to say the least... but things are now in place for a sustained move IMO.


As mentioned at the agm there are three possible important announcements coming possibly by the end of the year - sales to Saudi, FDA clearance for vet sales into the US and inclusion of Penthrox in doctors bags under the PBS. All would be significant events.


Profitable, no debt, good cashflows - everything you want to see in the current market and a plausible growth story.


Reinstating the buyback and strong director buying points I think to little downside at these levels.


Well worth another look for the thrill seeker!

of late, MVP is very much a Most Valuable Player. from $1.50 at start 2015 to $6.50 recently. Even paying a dividend 2c ff.


the Penthrox story finally seems to be a success after a long period building awareness; it has now got regulatory and marketing approval across Europe; plus looking to go to the USA. Enhanced manufacturing process cutting costs.


A second string to their bow - medical devices - is still early days. Bought Avita AVT local respiratory business Breath-a-Tech


Market cap $360mill, little debt; PE is astronomical

........ EPS ... DPS

2015 .. 2.6 ... 0

2016 .. 3.9 ... 3.0

2017 .. 7.3 ... 4.1

in 2016, MYP received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration to sell a range of its Anti-Static Space Chamber devices, which can be used to help manage asthma and COPD. The group's respiratory products are now sold in more than 7000 US pharmacies.


MVP recently gained full insurance reimbursement from every US healthcare fund, which has opened the company to nationwide chains.


Now, the biotechnology company has a deal with the world's largest retailer Walmart to supply at least two products from its range of respiratory devices to all of the 4600 Walmart pharmacies. The products will be supplied through pharmaceutical distributor, McKesson Corp. ​Another two products will be supplied to 2100 Walmart stores in the initial rollout. It also announced a similar deal with US Kmart, which operates 1000 pharmacies.


"We expect that respiratory business to grow four-fold over the next few years. We expect after-tax profits to reach over $10 million plus over next three years. This is an important part of our business," said the CEO John Sharman. "It is not every day that an Australian company achieves ranging of product with Walmart," he said. "We have a world-class respiratory device product range and we have a significant price advantage over competitor products in the USA. We are confident our USA business will deliver the expected sales growth in the months to come."

Medical Developments reported that sales of its flagship Penthrox medicine grew 47% overall, with a 32% rise in Australian sales and a 68% rise in UK sales.

Meanwhile, sales of Respiratory Medical Devices grew 62% in the US market, 111% in the Asian market and 9% in the Australian market, but were down 53% in the UK/EU, leading to an overall decline of 5%. The company hopes to reverse its UK/EU declines during FY20.


Outlook for MVP

MVP reiterated its goal to make Penthrox the âââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“mainstream analgesic of choice around the worldâââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’‚ÂÂ. Over the coming year, the company expects to complete the rollout of Penthrox in Europe as well as Asian and Middle Eastern markets, whilst progressing with its pending approvals in the US market as well as the Chinese market.


Advancing work on âââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“producing other analgesic and pharmaceutical products using the intellectual property that is our new manufacturing processâââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’‚ remains part of MVPâââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¾Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢s long-term plans, as well as consolidating and growing Respiratory Device sales in âââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“the USA, Europe and elsewhereâââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’‚ÂÂ.

- but basically hasn't done too much on the share price, since 2016; stubbornly sub $5 still
