What are Wall Street analysts saying about S&W Seed stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about S&W Seed stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "S&W Seed Company is engaged in breeding, contracting to grow, processing and selling agricultural commodities, which primarily include alfalfa seed and, to a lesser extent, wheat. Alfalfa seed varieties grow in warm climates and can thrive on poor, saline (salty) soils. The Company sells the seed primarily to dealers and distributors who, in turn, sell primarily to hay and dairy farmers who grow hay for dairy cattle and other livestock. S&W Seed Company is headquartered in Five Points, California. " (8/13/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "Legacy Pioneer Agreement Divested. On May 23rd, SANW announced the termination of the Pioneer distribution agreement with parent company Corteva, who subsequently received an exclusive license agreement for production and distribution of varieties that SANW had previously controlled.
     Favorable Terms. SANW receives $45 million immediately, and $25 million for existing inventory over the next 21 months. The Pioneer distribution agreement had contributed $35 to $40 million in revenue over the past few years, but we had previously modeled a drop off to the $25 to $27 million range for fiscal 2020.
     Experienced Management Team with Deep War Chest. We have a high degree of confidence in SANW’s ability to utilize the $70 million inflow prudently via debt reduction and M&A activity. Given the uncertainty regarding timing and scale of acquisitions, we are not including this potential in our model. However, we believe acquisitions announced over the next few quarters will more than offset the revenue lost from the Pioneer agreement and will result in a profitable pro forma model.
     A Transformational Move. We believe SANW has been making productive steps in turning around a company that was too concentrated from a geographic, crop and customer perspective. While several major initiatives have been taken, we believe this agreement represents the most significant event in the company’s history. As such, we believe the turnaround that was already well underway is meaningfully accelerated." (5/24/2019)
