BioNTech Delivers Upbeat Q3 Results; Issues Guidance

BioNTech (BNTX) delivered upbeat Q3 2021 results driven by a rapid increase in the supply and sales of the COVID-19 vaccine. The company also had a strong quarter in its oncology pipeline as it leveraged multiple therapeutic platforms.

Based in Germany, BioNTech develops and manufactures next-generation therapies for cancer, allergies, and autoimmune disorders. Its portfolio of oncology product candidates includes individualized and off-the-shelf mRNA-based therapies.

Q3 Results

Revenue in the quarter climbed to €6.09 billion compared to €67.5 million delivered the same quarter last year. The increase was due to the strong sales of the BNT162b2 vaccine worldwide.

For the full year, BioNTech expects revenue in the range of €16 billion and €17 billion on the shipping of 2.5 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. (See Top Smart Score Stocks on TipRanks)
