B.Riley FBR analyst Sarkis Sherbetchyan maintained a Buy rating on S&W Seed Company (SANW) today. The company’s shares opened today at $3.05.

Sherbetchyan commented:

“Company (SANW, $4 PT) reported 1Q19 (Sep.) results before the market open on Thursday, 11/8. Revenues exceeded both our and consensus estimates due to the acceleration of revenue recognition associated with sales to Pioneer. A beat on the top-line and lower-than-forecast operating expenses yielded an adjusted EBITDA which exceeded our and consensus forecasts. SANW is now focused on integrating the acquired Chromatin sorghum assets and IP . (For more on the acquisition, refer to our 11/2 flash note.) While Chromatin should be immediately accretive to SANW’s sales and gross profits, the absorption of the cost structure could impact EBITDA in the near-term.”
