H.C. Wainwright initiated coverage onΒ Korro Bio IncΒ KRRO, a biotech company aimed at editing ribonucleic acid (RNA) for treating diseases.

Recently, Korro Bio merged withΒ Frequency Therapeutics Inc.Β in an all-stockΒ deal, resulting in about $170 million in post-transaction cash to fund operations into 2026.

Analysts Mitchell S. Kapoor and Raghuram Selvaraju initiated a Buy rating and set a price targetΒ of $100 per share.

Korro’s core technology, Oligonucleotide Promoted Editing of RNA (OPERA), taps into native biology to make a targeted base edit in the RNA sequence, yielding desired protein translation and function.

Korro’s OPERA platform allows it to pursue a wide range of indications, initially focusing on six potential programs correcting mutations or creating protein variants.

Korro’s preclinical data was generated using a lipid nanoparticle, already used in the approved RNA interference (RNAi)-based therapeutic,Β Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc’sΒ ALNY Onpattro (patisiran), indicated for a rare disorder.

The company’s lead program is Oligo A for alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), a rare genetic disorder mainly affecting the lungs and liver, leading to lung conditions and liver disease.

Price Action:Β KRRO shares are up 27% at $62.26, reflecting Korro Bio’s strong performance.
