What are Wall Street analysts saying about BioLife Solutions stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BioLife Solutions stock: 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "BioLife announced that the company increased its stake in SAVSU $5M investment. The company also has an 18-month option to acquire the remaining 56%. In our view this is a strategic positive and the first step in management executing its plan to increase its share of the per-dose-spend in cell therapy. As such, shares should be up…not down, in our view." (9/5/2018) 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We remain constructive on this name. Besides being a lower-risk diversified pseudo-biotech play, BioLife also has the unique opportunity of increasing its revenues per customer, therefore increasing its product stickiness. the most important takeaway from the company call was the increased focus on M&A. The company announced a $20M investment from an investor, bringing the total ownership of that investor to 14%. This investment allows BioLife to start focus on a few M&A targets pretty aggressively. The goal of an M&A strategy would be to increase the ecosystem in which more dollars per customer can be captured. Currently, BioLife generates about $50 – $100/ customer, and a targeted M&A strategy could help the company go 5 – 10x of current revenues/customer."
