According to a research report published earlier today by Piper Jaffray, Achillion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ACHN) ended a profitable year with $80M in cash.

Piper Jaffray said in the report, “Achillion holds potential best-in-class HCV protease and NS5A inhibitors with in-house combination trials planned for later this year. This regimen offers a counter play to the "nuc" dominated landscape. We expect the wave of consolidation to continue in the HCV space with Achillion as a likely target.”
