Astra Space: Failed Launches Not Yet Growth's Death Knell

Astra Space is making factory investments, including an infrastructural upgrade that will see production tilted to a weekly rate instead of the current monthly rate. As of March 31, 2022, Astra's accumulated deficits stood at $1.494 billion, largely beset by negative cash flows and operational losses. Despite not breaking even, Astra is in the process of selling over 50 launches by 2025.

Astra: 2022 Is A Pivotal Year For Revenues And New Launches

Much of the bad news on prior failed launches and macro headwinds had already been priced in. Zero benefit has been given to the potentiality of the 13,600 satellite constellation. 2022 will see many more launches, and a transformation of the company from “test” phase to “commercialization” phase; forecasts expect revenues to ramp up by year-end. Astra is in a net cash position, estimated to last another two years - this makes the valuation of Astra relatively attractive, especially when viewed alongside a reasonable P/B ratio.
