| AquaBounty Technologies is conducting research and development of the commercial viability of a group of proteins commonly known as antifreeze proteins. Co. has the licensing rights for a gene construct (transgene) used to create a breed of farm-raised Atlantic salmon. Co. has obtained regulatory approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the production and sale of its genetically engineered AquAdvantage salmon product (GE Atlantic salmon) in the U.S.; from Health Canada for the production and sale of its GE Atlantic salmon product in Canada; and from National Biosafety Technical Commission for the sale of its GE Atlantic salmon product in Brazil. We show 23 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our AQB shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute AQB market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing AQB market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing AQB's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of AQB versus a peer is one thing; comparing
AQB market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like AQB can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching AQB by allowing them to research the AQB market cap history.
