Vericel Corporation, formerly Aastrom Biosciences, Inc., is based in United States. " (3/8/2019) 2. BTIG Research analysts commented, "$17 PT Heading into earnings, we viewed MACI’s ~23% Y/Y adjusted comp as achievable as the combo of increasing biopsy growth in YE17, rep additions, and low market penetration suggested another beatable Q. Viewed independent of the guidance raise, MACI’s 2Q18 result was in line with our Street-high expectations ($14.1M vs. BTIG’s $14.0M est.) but above Consensus ($13.7M) and while not bad, it may not excite investors looking for continued acceleration. That said, we do expect shares to be up tomorrow as guidance was raised ~9% (at the midpoint) to $80M – $83M (from $73M – $78M) as mgmt. sees strengthening momentum in 2H18 within MACI from biopsy strength, faster conversion times, new rep contributions, and continued marketing."
