    Cash Situation


    Small growing company burning cash - can they continue to issue shares - company probably cannot borrow from a bank. Excellent growth prospects but cash needs could be a challenge.

    • 800 devices at 20k rev each would put the company at break even or slight positive earnings.

      At this point they are burning less than $2mil per Qtr with the exception of previous qtr where they put aside extra $1mil to kick start the official sales launch of (Reimbursed + clia waived) Tearlab.

      They had $18mil in cash from previous qtr report, this is enough.

      If you have concerns get involved and research your self or perhaps join the earnings CC and ask the question.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • well I would tend to agree -- I think the Company is moving to more of a razor and razor blade model - where the machines are not sold upfront - rather given/leased for the long term - then Dr's are locked into a long-term annuity of the disposable products. Less upfront cash, but better long-term visibility.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • what was that? What theme are you expounding........and you know what regarding "probably cannot"...........if it ain't verifiable shut your trap.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • There won't be a problem with cash. This company is increasing sales and more and more opthalmologists' offices are adopting Tear Labs device.
