Novacyt Expects Low Revenue For First Half Of 2023
The Anglo-French biotech company expects to earn less revenue in the first half, due to diminishing COVID-19 cases. Novacyt reported £500,000 in COVID-19-related half-yearly sales as compared to £13 million last year. The biotech company also reported a 3% quarterly increase in non-COVID-19 revenue.
In other news, Yourgene Health shareholders approved the acquisition offer made by Novacyt. The acquisition offer valued the entire share capital of Yourgene Health at about £16.7 million. This deal is expected to be finalized in the third quarter and will allow Yourgene Health to pay its outstanding debt to Silicon Valley Bank.
Novacyt Price Forecast
The price chart for LON: NCYT shows that the price is facing resistance from the downward trendline. This suggests that the bears are preventing the price from breaking above it.
If the bulls dominate the bears and break above the trendline, I expect a rally all the way to the yearly high of 157.2p. On the other hand, Novacyt share price forecast would become bearish if the price faces an intense rejection from the trendline. In this case, the price may retest the 200 MA again.
