BIOLASE, Inc (BIOL) Stock Price, News, Quote & History
Leading supplier of dental lasers BIOLASE, Inc. (BIOL) in Irvine, California, has sold more than 41,200 laser systems in 90 countries around the world. Its revenues increased by almost 46% in the last reported quarter. The company said on November 10 that it will likely continue to experience high demand for dental lasers in the fourth quarter. Its fourth-quarter revenue is also expected to exceed $ 10.20 million in pre-pandemic revenue in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.
BIOL shares rose in price on November 24, 2021, after NASDAQ admitted the company to May 23, 2022 to regain compliance with the exchange's minimum bid price requirement.
However, the share price fell 27.9% in the last three months and 35.3% in the last six months to close yesterday's trading session at $ 0.44. BIOL has suddenly canceled its special shareholder meeting, originally scheduled for November 19, 2021, to discuss a potential reverse stock split. So BIOL's short term outlook seems uncertain.
