Med Tech Co. Well-Poised for Revenue Growth This Year
Source: Swayampakula Ramakanth
January 26, 2023 (Investorideas.com Newswire) New revenue sources already in place are expected to boost cash flow 72% over the next 12 months, noted an H.C. Wainwright & Co. report.
The outlook for bioelectronic medicine firm, electroCore Inc. (ECOR:NASDAQ), in 2023 is positive, given its recent and projected revenue growth, reported H.C. Wainwright & Co. analyst Dr. Swayampakula Ramakanth in a Jan. 18 First Take research note.
"We are encouraged by the preliminary financial results the company achieved in 2022 and management's ability to continuously seek new avenues to drive revenue growth," Ramakanth commented.
This company, developing noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation therapy to treat multiple medical conditions, offers investors significant potential return. This is indicated by the large difference between electroCore's current share price (US$0.40) and H.C. Wainwright's per-share target price on the company (US$2.75). ElectroCore is Buy rated.
Revenue Growth Expected
The New Jersey-based company is expected to increase revenues this year by 72%, generating about US$14.6 million (US$14.6M) as a result, noted Ramakanth. This would follow a 52% year-over-year revenue growth in 2022, totaling US$8.5M and up from US$5.5M.
Last year's Q4 was particularly strong, Ramakanth pointed out. Revenue for that quarter alone is estimated to be US$2.5M, 68% higher than Q4/21's US$1.5M. This growth is due, in part, to electroCore's sales of gammaCore products to the Veterans Affairs (VA)/Department of Defense (DOD).
"With VA centers returning to pre-pandemic patient traffic and with published clinical data regarding the efficacy of gammaCore in reducing symptoms associated with acute withdrawal in opioid use disorder patients, we expect deeper penetration of the device within the VA system in 2023," wrote Ramakanth.
New Revenue Streams
Revenue is expected to come from three additional places this year, according to Ramakanth. If they "are successful and become meaningful contributors, our current full-year 2023 revenue estimate could prove conservative."
One source of revenue is electroCore's distribution agreement with Joerns Healthcare to sell gammaCore to patients in certain managed care health systems. Incoming revenue from this is expected to start in H2/23.
Another revenue channel, which opened in Q4/22 but is expected to also ramp up in H2/23, is sales of TAC-STIM, a new product for offering under the BOOST, or Air Force Biotech Optimized for Operational Solutions and Tactics, program, for human performance, noted Ramakanth. Full product deployment is anticipated later this year.
The third revenue stream is from sales of Truvaga, electroCore's handheld noninvasive vagus nerve stimulator launched online in December 2022.
