AbCellera Biologics: Fully Funded, With New Opportunities And Massive Insider Buying
AbCellera stock has continued to struggle of late given the absolutely terrible sentiment in the biotech market, however the company's actual business is thriving under the surface. In the Q1 earnings call, the company highlighted both the internally developed T-Cell engager platform, along with the Empirico deal which provides the option to co-invest in programs. The company is currently sitting on a mountain of cash, $786 million worth and this balance looks to grow further with $334 million in accrued receivables from bebtelovimab. Insiders clearly appreciate the opportunity ahead as the CEO, CFO & COO each purchased significant amounts of stock directly after the Q1 release and insiders now own over 27% of the business.
