Takara Bio Inc (4974 JP) reported 55% y/y growth in revenue during the first nine months of FY22, mainly driven by 129% y/y surge in COVID-19 PCR test reagent revenue.
- Although Takara Bio is likely to beat its FY22 guidance, uncertainty is prevailing for revenue earning potential beyond FY22, when the COVID-19 test demand will fade away.
- We would stay away from this idea for now and wait on the sideline for a clarity of growth potential and recovery in the base business in FY23 and beyond.
