  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Buy-rated Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (CYTX, $0.70 PT) reported 4Q17 results AMC Thursday, 3/8/2018, and held a corresponding conference call at 5:30pm ET. CYTX posted a top line/ EPS/adj. EBITDA of $1.5M/($0.20)/($2.9)M versus our estimate of $2.0M/($0.10)/($3.3)M and consensus $2.6M/($0.10)/($1.7)M. The revenue miss was primarily due to lower Celution Systems sales in Japan as 4Q government contract revenue through BARDA for the R&D of medical countermeasures for thermal burns of $0.9M was just shy of our $1.0M estimate. BARDA revenues should continue to increase as CYTX gets ready to commence its pilot trial (for additional info, see Quick Note dated 6/1/17). Meanwhile, CYTX’s EPS would have been in line with our projection but the company recognized $4.0M in one-time non-cash expenses related to a beneficial conversion feature for convertible preferred stock.
