Earnings Preview: Ekso Bionics Holdings


On Thursday, February 25, Ekso Bionics Holdings (NASDAQ:EKSO) will report its last quarter's earnings. Here is Benzinga's preview of the company's release.

What Are Earnings, Net Income, And Earnings Per Share?

Earnings and EPS are useful metrics of profitability. Total earnings also known as net income is equal to total revenue minus total expenses. Dividing net income by the total number of shares outstanding yields EPS.

Earnings And Revenue

Analysts are predicting Ekso Bionics Holdings will report a loss of $0.3 per share on revenue of $2.58 million. Ekso Bionics Holdings EPS in the same period a year ago totaled $0.04. Sales were $3.72 million.

What Are Analyst Estimates And Earnings Surprises, And Why Do They Matter?

Wall Street analysts who study this company will publish analyst estimates of revenue and EPS. The averages of all analyst EPS and revenue estimates are called the "consensus estimates"; these consensus estimates can have a significant effect on a company's performance during an earnings release. When a company posts earnings or revenue above or below a consensus estimate, it has posted an "earnings surprise", which can really move a stock depending on the difference between actual and estimated values.

If the company were to match the consensus estimate when it reports Thursday, EPS would have fallen 650.0%. Revenue would have fallen 30.63% from the same quarter last year. Here is how the company's reported EPS has stacked up against analyst estimates in the past:

Quarter Q3 2020 Q2 2020 Q1 2020 Q4 2020
EPS Estimate -0.39 -0.55 -0.61 -0.04
EPS Actual -0.32 -1.84 -0.44 -0.04
Revenue Estimate 2.45 M 1.62 M 1.41 M 3.65 M
Revenue Actual 2.90 M 2.30 M 1.47 M 3.72 M

Stock Performance

Over the last 52-week period, shares are up 60.39%. Given that these returns are generally positive, long-term shareholders can relax going into this earnings release. Long-term shareholders are already enjoying 12-month gains prior to the announcement.

Do not be surprised to see the stock move on comments made during its conference call. Ekso Bionics Holdings is scheduled to hold the call at 16:30:00 ET and can be accessed here.
