The analysts wrote, “We lower our PT to $3 to reflect this delayed announcement. We maintain our Outperform Rating on REFR. Adding newer licensees. The company is continuing to add more licensees to its roster. During Q4, REFR added Gauzy as a licensee to focus on the architectural market. Since the architectural market is much bigger than automotive market, in terms of glass deployment, we view this as a positive development for the company. As REFR doesn’t manufacture the products using SPD technology, we believe the addition of licensees will grow its future revenue pipeline. REFR’s revenues for F’17 stood at $1.5 million, a 22% Y/Y increase. The increase in revenue came from growth in its key verticals including automotive, marine and architectural markets. However, the company’s revenues from the aircraft industry went down during Q4, which management attributed to timing of deliveries of aircraft windows to customers.””
