They're first to market with an innovative product. Although they've hit some bumps early on getting a plant up to speed.

I think that they've got enough cash to get them through and there is plenty of upside runway.

Taking a flyer here.

Production costs are way, way too high right now and without larger production volumes won't enable profitable sales of products outside of Algenist. I have doubts about the actual woes of the production facility in Moema. Most investors don't have the advantage of talking to people who have visited the facility, but the writing is on the wall for everyone to see. I summed up the situation before the 3Q14 conference call:
http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/10/16/its-time-for-solazyme-management-to-come-clean.aspx

Knowing that, I also seriously question Solazyme's ability to make its platform work reliably and consistently at commercial scale. If technology issues weren't a concern, then the manufacturing facility in Clinton would have much, much lower production costs even at limited production volumes.

So why the flyer? At this CAPS entry point, I'll either lose 100 points when Solazyme goes bankrupt or, in the long-term, gain hundreds more when Solazyme fixes its platform. That's too big of an "if" for a real life investment for me right now.

Unfairly painted by the biodiesel brush. Look for growth in the non-energy segments of their business: nutritional and cosmetic products

It's technology with great potencial. I personally use a lot of C8-C10 in my buussines. And I know if there will be any company which will deliver the same product in lower or equal price (but renewable ) I will prefere it.

Clearly Solazyme has a large management issue with communication to market and shareholders. It has not improved/ changed in the last months since Q2 earnings call where they have highlighted problems in Moema plant. Last conference call still did not provide much of insight to what kind of problems they have in Moema. The market reacted with heavy sell-off. The management seems not to realize that uncertainty which typically is related to issues with proper communication is sth. that Mr. market hates and punishes the stock. They sem to have good technology, however if communication does not improve this stock will continue to underperform the market.

Just a complete guess based on so many people love this company but the stock is waaaaay down so it may be a good entry point if this is a good company.

Very good prospects. The breadth of applicability is astounding. Still remains to see how much of those prospects are capitalized. I'd be interested to see their performance in the health foods area in addition to industrial oils. At the current market dip, I think its worth the risk.

Risky venture, but starting to pay off. The oil field product looks like a winner and the plant in Brazil is finally coming fully online. Might be bumpy for a while, but long term looks good.

Solazyme is just starting commercial production at its Brazil factory. Big revenue increases coming very soon. And they continue to gain traction in new industries like food, oil service, etc. Buy the future of this company.

New factory is Moema, Brazil is expected to produce 120,000 metric tons (MT) of renewable oils. Average selling price has been $2,600 per MT which would mean $300mm in revenue. Raw costs are about 1/3 of revenue so potentially $200mm in profits (roughly EPS $2.5). Production has been delayed, but likely reach goal in next year or two. Considering current market cap is under $600mm, there's a lot of room for growth. Using a forward P/E of 20, stock should be worth >$40 in a few years which is big upside from current price of $7. Albeit a simplistic model that doesn't include other costs (eg. R&D), it also doesn't include other sources of revenue and further growth. Either way, I think the stock is severely undervalued with big potential.
