2 ASX Small Cap Companies to buy in FY20.

Botanix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: BOT)

Clinical stage cannabinoid company Botanix Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: BOT, “Botanix” or “the Company”) on 15 July 2019 announced exciting new data from studies recently conducted around its cannabidiol antimicrobial platform and a new development program ‘AB 2367’.

Botanix’s antimicrobial platform addresses the significant global threat

Key highlights  

  • New data has shown that a new drug candidate from Botanix’s cannabidiol antimicrobial platform has potent activity against hypervirulent strains of the bacteria Clostridium difficile
  •  Clostridium difficile is the most commonly acquired hospital infection worldwide and is responsible for over 30,000 deaths each year in the US alone
  •  Data for AB 2367, Botanix’s new development program, shows that cannabidiol is effective against the super hypervirulent 027 strain, which has been responsible for numerous recent severe outbreaks and deaths
  •  Studies were conducted in collaboration with world-leading Clostridium difficile researcher Prof. Dena Lyras at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Department of Microbiology
  •  This new data adds to the recently announced BTX 1801 study results that MRSA does not develop resistance to cannabidiol and underpins Botanix’s growing antimicrobial platform

The strong antimicrobial performance of cannabidiol forms a solid foundation for Botanix’s existing skin disease programs but provides the potential to be a development platform for the Company, which can be deployed across multiple human and animal health applications. The Company continues to assess its

Following their successful testing of the re-engineered VIN client software in Blue

Tech’s San Diego Lab, Blue Tech has now requested a reseller agreement from Netlinkz outlining commercial terms. Netlinkz will now look to entering a reseller agreement with Blue Tech by the end of August 2019 for Blue Tech to commence distribution of the SDWAN VIN product via its significant US Federal customer base. Netlinkz’s software product will be incorporated in bundled solutions for use in mobile network solutions, data management, and cloud.

Veye’s take

Netlinkz rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 267% over the last year. So this year’s TSR was actually better than the three-year TSR (annualized) of 28%. These improved returns hint at some real business momentum. With successful completion of the Blue Tech evaluation, NetLinkz will now go for fullfledged expansion in the US which is a very extensive market. As per technical charts also, the stock could have really taken off after a pull back. We recommend a “Buy” on Netlinkz Limited at the current price of $0.25.
