Arcadia is an agricultural biotechnology trait company concentrating on developing the portfolio of yield and traits with an aim to cover multiple crops.

The huge sell-off in its stock was the result of poor financial results in the past two years. Its revenue declined more than 21% on average in the past two years. The company’s revenue declined 45% year over year to $589,000 in the third quarter of FY2017.

However, the company expects to generate better results in the days to come, supported by its strategy to expand non-GM health and nutritional ingredient products pipeline.

Its CEO stated, “Importantly during the quarter, we’ve further broadened and advanced to market an unparalleled non-GM health and nutritional ingredient products pipeline, and we’ve jump-started the deregulation and commercialization of two of our leading ag productivity traits, Water- and Nitrogen Use Efficiency in rice and cotton.”

After the addition of reduced gluten trait variety to its pipeline, the company has considerably expanded the non-GM wheat trait portfolio.

Furthermore, Arcadia is planning to improve its revenue generation in the short-term with the strategy of targeting the consumer markets and animal feed market for its high-fiber wheat products. Overall, the latest rally shows that investors are capitalizing on the huge selloff in Arcadia shares, thanks to improving fundamentals.
