What are Wall Street analysts saying about Marrone Bio Innovations stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Marrone Bio Innovations stock:
  • 1. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "We have not yet incorporated the effect of the financing and the proposed acquisition in our model. If, and when, the transaction closes, we believe that the company’s revenues for 2019 should be expected to be higher, relative to our current expectation, by single-digit millions. Currently, we are projecting MBII to generate revenues of $30.3M in 2019. We expect revenues to reach $160.7M in 2025, growing at a six-year CAGR of 32.0%, relative to 2019 levels. We are estimating gross margin to stay at 55-56% level for the next several years." (8/12/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "Second Quarter Results. Revenue of $7.0 million grew 22% YoY but missed consensus estimates of $8.3 million, while gross margins improved and adjusted operating expenses remained roughly flat sequentially. Overall, the second quarter continued the trend of directional improvement, but the scale of the improvement was a modest disappointment to us especially when considering what were favorable comps off of a weak second quarter of 2018.
     Acquisition Of Pro Farm The Highlight. Most significantly, MBII announced its acquisition of a biostimulant peer Pro Farm Technologies for $31.8 million. The acquisition expands MBII’s presence in the high growth seed treatment market and diversifies its product offering away from biopesticides with a second biostimulant offering.
     Supportive Of The Transaction. We are bullish on the seed treatment market over both the near and long term and believe additional exposure can create meaningful shareholder value. Furthermore, given our estimates for the financial impact, the acquisition enhances our belief that MBII will pivot to cash flow breakeven in 2021. We had previously modeled MBII to operate at Adjusted EBITDA breakeven in 2021. With the transaction, we look for 2021 to now generate a modest EBITDA profit.
     Long Term Value Creation. With the integration of Pro Farms and collaborations with other commercial partners, MBII is targeting a more diverse product portfolio that broadens its biological offerings beyond biopesticides to include biostimulants and biofertilizers. Should scale develop as we believe it can over the mid-term, we believe MBII will look increasingly attractive to larger peers which may generate meaningful value for long term shareholders." (8/9/2019)
  • 3. Aegis analysts commented, "We think Marrone Bio has a scalable, repeatable business model. We think Marrone Bio’s roots are in innovation, with an organization that is heavy on research talent, with a tenured management team of industry veterans. In recent years, Marrone’s focus has been on commercializing this R&D investment, and the company has a portfolio of commercial products on the market. Marrone Bio’s model consists of discovering novel bio-based compounds, refining them with in-house expertise and laboratory equipment, and introducing them to the commercial sphere. We think Marrone can continue to execute on this strategy as it moves increasingly close to profitability." (7/24/2019)
