Research Report

Share on Stocktwits


The Quick Take

  • ROTH initiated coverage on NaturalShrimp with a Neutral rating and a $0.36 per share price target.
  • NaturalShrimp developed and patented technology that enables it to mass produce fresh Pacific white shrimp, a challenge inherent in recirculating aquaculture system, or RAS, farming, reported ROTH Capital Partners analyst Brian Wright in a Dec. 21 research note.
  • The global shrimp market presents "tremendous opportunity" given it is estimated to reach $50 billion by 2027.
  • NaturalShrimp has a distribution deal in place with Florida-based Gulf Seafood, calling for shrimp sales revenue of $300,000–$500,000.
  • NaturalShrimp had $0.8M in cash and cash equivalents as of Sept. 30, 2021.

In the short term, ROTH Capital Partners expects NaturalShrimp Inc. (SHMP:OTCQB) to boost production in H1/22 and increase revenue to about $6 million by the end of fiscal year 2023, wrote analyst Brian Wright. 

By 2030, ROTH anticipates  NaturalShrimp will reach nearly $300 million in annual revenue based solely on expanding its number of facilities to around 20 from its current five in Texas and Iowa and growing production.

"As production scales in existing facilities in calendar 2022, opportunities to fund additional plant expansions will multiply, in our opinion, as the company has been highly capital efficient to date and plant costs are well below RAS peers who focus on salmon production," Wright added.
