On 3 August, the company released its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2023 – a condition of US securities regulations – and for the full year 2023.
Investors could have been thrilled with the 18% rise in revenues and the 13% increase in income from operations. They weren’t. Instead, the share price plunged into a tailspin as investors chose to focus on the 55.8% drop in gross margin percentage.
Year to date, the stock price is down 19.96% following the steep drop coming after the FY 2023 release of financial results. Over five years, the share price has risen 60%.
