Omeros Corp. (OMER)

Biotechnology penny stocks have been flying high recently thanks to bullish events in the industry. Omeros Corp. has followed suit with this trend over the last month. Omeros’ rally initially began after the company reached a milestone event in late December. The event triggered a milestone payment due to a previous deal with Rayner Surgical.

Omeros signed an asset purchase agreement a few years back where it sold its ophthalmology product, OMIDRIA, to Rayner.

Monday’s news highlighted the $200 million payment and cited that Rayner continues to pay Omeros royalties on U.S. and ex-U.S. net sales of OMIDRIA.

Demopulos, M.D., Omeros’ chairman and chief executive officer. “In addition, the recently enacted CAA secures long-term separate payment for OMIDRIA in both ambulatory surgery centers and hospital outpatient departments, and we look forward to continued participation in OMIDRIA’s growth through our ongoing royalty stream.”
