IDXX is Resilient During Economic Downturn

Previously, I shared the bearish sentiments of a former director of IDXX on the company’s need for new leadership and innovation. In contrast, one of the top transcripts published last week with a former IDXX senior manager had more bullish sentiments.

This expert believes that IDXX is not economically sensitive based on its experience during the height of COVID.

I think they would not be hurt at all. I know they’re doing really well. Even during COVID, we experienced the mildest slowdown. I couldn’t even call it a slowdown meal. It was crazy. We made several business initiatives to conserve. Management took a certain percentage cut in their salary to protect the business. The hourly employees took X amount of hours.

The expert also states that there is a huge shortage of histotech staffing but IDXX has an advantage since veterinary pathology isn’t regulated.

One of the big challenges is going to be hiring because there is a huge shortage of histotech. That’s really the only one I could think of. They have that advantage because since it’s a vet path, veterinary pathology isn’t regulated. You can hire pretty much anybody and on-the-job train them. They do have a very regimented process for that.”
