The business and technology behind the biotechnology industry is multifaceted and uncertain. This makes analyzing a biotech company's future success a challenging job. What makes this task even more difficult is the fact that many biotech companies are in different stages of development with no earnings or revenue, and little cash flow. Traditional financial analysis are not applicable as these numbers don't accurately represent where the company is going. Many companies are releasing their Q2 financial results this time of year. When viewing the numbers you should also take into account the qualitative data, not just the numbers.

Since financial results can be deceiving based on a pure numbers standpoint due to the nature of biotechnology, it's vital to consider the following points when checking their financial results:

  • Number of products and pipelines: a company should be developing a technology platform with numerous treatment opportunities and not just one.
  • Number of patents: this is important to know so that you can identify which possess patents to protect their technology and innovation.
  • Successful Research and
    Development (R&D) history: a sign of company success is the ability to develop cost-effective drugs that represent breakthrough therapies, following the R&D processes for a company is vital.

Some such companies include: Propanc Biopharma Inc. (OTC: PPCB), Catalyst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRX), Ziopharm Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: ZIOP),BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BDSI), Aquinox Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AQXP).

proprietary treatments for cancer patients. Their lead product, PRP, is patented across several international countries after their filing of a Patent Cooperation Treaty in April of this year. This product pipeline is diverse and
aims to prevent aims to prevent tumor recurrence and metastasis from solid tumors, the main cause of patient death from cancer. The company has recently focused its efforts on Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control (CMC) activities in order to produce the Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) for PRP, to be used for the upcoming First-In-Human studies. As their product continues to see success in securing patents and furthering their R&D, PPCB is positioning itself for great financial success.

Once their Q2 financial results are released, it will be important to keep in mind the qualitative data on PPCB while analyzing the numbers.
