Now, let’s look at what has changed in the company’s key risk factors.
According to the new Tipranks’ Risk Factors tool, Viemed’s main risk category is Finance & Corporate, which accounts for 36% of the total 42 risks identified. Since June, the company has added one key risk factor under the Production category.
Viemed distributes and sells certain Royal Philips BiPAP and CPAP devices and ventilators. In June, Royal Philips initiated a voluntary recall of these products to address potential health risks arising from the foam component in these devices. This recall could have an adverse impact on Viemed’s business, reputation, financial performance and future prospects.
The Finance & Corporate risk factor’s sector average is at 33%, compared to Viemed’s 36%. Shares are down 37% so far this year.
