Pyrogensis Canada (Nasdaq: PYR , Toronto: PYR) reported record fourth quarter and full year 2021 revenue on Thursday, posting C$7.2 million (US$5.8 million) and C$31.1 million (US$24.9 million), respectively.

The fourth quarter revenue number alone was greater than the full year revenue in 2019 and all years prior.

Net loss for the year was C$38.4 million (US$30.7 million) compared to net income of C$41.8 million (US$33.5 million) in 2020. The ugly bottom line was largely attributable to a crushing loss in the fair market value of the company's strategic investment in HPQ Silicon Resources.

The Montreal-based company is a leader in the design, development, manufacture and commercialization of advanced plasma processes and sustainable solutions which reduce greenhouse gases.

Investment thesis

PyroGenesis stock is down 73% from its February 2021 closing high of $9.43. At Thursday's close of $2.50, the company has a market capitalization of just US$436 million. 

We believe that the company's record performance in 2021 and growth trajectory are not reflected in the current price. We believe further that PyroGenesis has learned a painful lesson from its HPQ Silicon Resources investment.
