Recent News & Updates

Jun 27

Enzo Biochem: Activist Pressure Could Finally Lead To A Company Sale

On June 9, Enzo Biochem announced a new strategic review that may finally lead to the sale of the long-mismanaged company. Since late 2021, positive changes have taken place - long-time CEO Rabbani was replaced with an independent CEO, an experienced activist was appointed to the Board and Rabbani-affiliated President resigned. For these reasons, a company or asset sale may eventually materialise. The set-up appears to exist because of low liquidity and analyst coverage. Downside is limited by undervaluation and net cash position of ENZ.

Forecasted Healthcare industry annual growth in earnings

In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as Enzo Biochem has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by SimplyWall St do have past financial data.
