HC Wainwright set a $12.00 price target on Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ:GEVO) in a research note published on Wednesday. The brokerage currently has a buy rating on the energy company’s stock.

“We are pleased to see that progress is being made on adapting Gevo’s technology for non-corn feedstocks. We believe that the success of this development effort demonstrates the versatility and adaptability of Gevo’s isobutanol technology for varied feedstocks. Under the second phase of the development agreement, Praj is expected to adapt Gevo’s technology to use lignocellulosic feedstock. In our opinion, the use of non-corn feedstock offers a significant mid- to long-term opportunity to Gevo. Praj has a significant worldwide presence and can leverage Gevo’s technology that can be implemented as a bolt-on to existing ethanol plants or as a greenfield plant. Isobutanol produced using this technology can be used as a gasoline blendstock, as a specialty chemical solvent, or it can be utilized in the production of alcohol-to-jet fuel (ATJ) and isooctane. As a reminder to investors, Gevo’s ATJ technology has already been successfully demonstrated by its use in flights by Alaska Airlines (ALK; not rated), the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, and the U.S. Navy. We believe that in addition to the initially targeted regions of India, South America, and South-East Asia, Praj and Gevo should also be able to make inroads into geographies like California, where low-carbon fuels are valued. Since the beginning of the year, Gevo has: 1) successfully addressed its debt maturity issues; and 2) entered into an offtake agreement to supply renewable isooctane to HCS Holding GmbH (HCS). The company is already in further discussions with HCS to establish agreements for other products like ATJ and isobutanol.”,” HC Wainwright’s analyst wrote.
