  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We view this financing as overdue" as the company had been operating for some time at a cash balance hovering around $10 million. We trim our out year revenue and earnings estimates as we exercise more conservatism on Heska’s top line growth, and we expect a higher level of spending to help return the company to growth, following ~3 years of missing expectations. We are cautiously optimistic to see Heska deliver on its growth initiatives, however, our near-term expectations are tempered until we see evidence of stronger commercial execution. While we trim our estimates and price target to $75 (from $95), we are sticking with our BUY rating in hopes we see progress on new product and geographic expansion as we look out to 2020.
