Q: Mike asked about the valuation of Pyrogenesis today, Feb 16th, commenting that it had never been profitable or cash flow positive. I just wanted to point out that this has changed in fiscal year 2020. The last quarter was very profitable, and the current estimate for fiscal 2020, released on Jan 11th, is for revenue of $14 - 16 million, an increase of approximately 200% since 2019, and net income of 22 - 24 cents per share, compared to a loss of 7 cents per share in 2019. The company is making good progress with their various product lines involving plasma torches for various industrial purposes, plasma atomized metal powder, and plasma waste-to-energy systems.

Q: As of today (Feb 13th 2021), this company has a market cap of ~ $1.5 Billion. However, from what I can see (on SEDAR), it has not even come close to having a positive net income or cash flow since its existence. Am I (as an investor) missing something very obvious, of is this just another sign that there is a "bit of exuberance" in the current market ?

Q: HI,

PYR announced preliminary results for Q4 and FY....
"Based on preliminary financial information, and subject to year-end closing adjustments, PyroGenesis expects revenue for the fourth quarter 2020 to be between $3 - $5 million, resulting in total revenues for the fiscal year ending 2020 of approximately $14 - $16 million, as compared to $1.07 million (Q4 2019) and $4.8 million (FY 2019), respectively.
The Company also expects earnings per share (“EPS”) for the fourth quarter to be in the range of $0.10 - $0.12, and for the fiscal year ending 2020 of between $0.22 - $0.24 , as compared to a loss of $0.04 (Q4 2019) and a loss of $0.07 (FY2019), respectively."

Quarter over quarter numbers ie Q3 vs Q4 are reduced but YoY quarters and FY are vastly improved. I know their quarterly numbers can be lumpy (based on contracts completed) but the FY growth is impressive.
Would you continue to just watch this for now and see if they can expand their customer count and thus also expand their backlog? Or take a 1/3 initial position?
(Motley Fool did a piece indicating any (quarterly) reduced revenues could spark a sell off).
