PolyNovo is an Australian developer of unique, patented, biodegradable polymers for use in medical devices. The company provides regenerative products for burns, surgical wounds, orthopedics and reconstructive surgery amongst other health issues.

The company’s ASX announcement included several positives for the company, including their first product order of their flagship biodegradable temporizing matrix (BTM) product from medical device company PolyMedics Innovation (PMI) for their branches in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Furthermore, PolyNovo’s BTM product is being used in surgery for the first time on Sunday in Germany. PNV also announced that there are a number of surgeons that plan to use BTM in upcoming surgeries in the coming week and fortnight.

Today’s announcement is just more great news for the company that is looking to break into an opportunistic and lucrative European market. The stock has rallied 30 fold in the past 5 years and 335% in the past year alone. The company is expected to breakeven in FY20 and is currently trading on a forward FY21 consensus multiple of 175x earnings and a FY22 consensus multiple of 94x, meaning that the market expects PNV’s earnings to grow significantly through the next few years.
