Performance June 2023



The graph below details the individual MoM performance of all SSI Portfolio ideas that were active during the month of June 2023.



Metacrine (MTCR) +7.5% in 4 months. Additional distributions pending.
Metacrine was a failed biopharma company in liquidation. Shareholders were expected to receive between $0.49-$0.65 in liquidating distributions (shares stood at $0.54 at the time). Sense checking the liquidation figures provided by management suggested likely distributions of at least $0.58/share, with the rest of the upside driven by the potential release of contingency reserve. After the initial distribution of $0.58/share the company was delisted and further incremental returns might be realized over the coming couple of years.

Talaris Therapeutics (TALS) +17% in 1 Month
This was my second run on the TALS strategic review setup. In early June, TALS’ stock traded back down to the previous write-up levels without any material updates. This was a good point to re-enter the position. Shortly after, the company announced a reverse merger with another biopharma name, driving TALS stock price above my estimate of a fari price of the combined company. The reopened TALS case
generated a solid 17% return in a couple of weeks.
