The revenue for KB-0742 is expected to reach an annual total of $68 mn by 2036 in the US based off GlobalData’s Expiry Model. The drug’s revenue forecasts along with estimated costs are used to measure the value of an investment opportunity in that drug, otherwise known as net present value (NPV). Applying the drug’s phase transition success rate to remaining R&D costs and likelihood of approval (LoA) to sales related costs provides a risk-adjusted NPV model (rNPV). The rNPV model is a more conservative valuation measure that accounts for the risk of a drug in clinical development failing to progress.

KB-0742 Overview

KB-0742 is under development for the treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer, soft tissue sarcoma and MYC-dependent acute myeloid leukemia, solid tumors, ovarian cancer, chordoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, soft tissue sarcoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), gastric cancer, gastroesophageal (GE) junction carcinomas, diffuse large B-cell carcinoma, NUT midline carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, neuroblastoma tumors, ewing sarcoma (EW) and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS). It is administered through oral route as a capsule. The drug candidate acts by targeting cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9). It is developed based on small molecule microarray (SMM) platform.

Blending expert knowledge with cutting-edge technology, GlobalData’s unrivalled proprietary data will enable you to decode what’s happening in your market. You can make better informed decisions and gain a future-proof advantage over your competitors.


GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, drug margins and company expenses. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate valuation, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA) and phase transition success rate (PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
