Pfizer & BioNTech SE to Supply Over 200 Additional Doses of COMIRNATY

Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (NASDAQ: BNTX) have disclosed that the European Commission (E.C.) and its member states will exercise an option to buy more than 200 million additional doses of COMIRNATY, the companies’ COVID-19 vaccine. Contractual details remain under wraps. 

Details of the Deal 

Per the previous agreements between the companies and E.C., 450 million doses were planned to be delivered in 2022. Therefore, with the recent agreement to supply 200 million additional doses, the companies will now deliver more than 650 million doses to E.C. member states in 2022. 

Notably, in May, Pfizer and BioNTech agreed to supply 900 million doses to the E.C. in 2022 and 2023, with an option to buy additional 900 million doses.

On December 20, Geoff Meacham, an analyst from one of the Top Research Firms, Bank of America Securities, maintained a Hold rating but increased the price target to $59 (3.31% downside potential) from $54.
