Lifecore Biomedical Inc LFCR reported a Q3 FY23 revenue decline of 26% Y/Y to $27.60 million, missing the consensus of $28 million.
- Segment revenues fell 24% Y/Y to $26.3 million due to a decline in its CDMO business and Hyaluronic Acid raw material manufacturing (fermentation) business.
- Curation Foods segment revenues also declined 51% Y/Y to $1.27 million.
- Gross profit was down 53.5% Y/Y to $6 million.

- Cash and cash equivalents of $3 million at the end of the quarter.
- Lifecore recently executed an enhanced Supply Agreement with a significant, long-term customer, Alcon, as well as completing a comprehensive restructuring of its debt arrangements.
- These transactions allow Lifecore to clear the existing Going Concern qualification and create a more stable and sustainable business model.
- “In combination with the sale of our remaining Curation Foods segment business in early April, Lifecore is beginning a new chapter as a stand-alone CDMO,” CEO James Hall says.
- The company is currently evaluating “strategic alternatives” to maximize stockholder value, he added.
