Expectation from Software analysts is HEEROS is on the verge of breakeven. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2019, before generating positive profits of €200k in 2020. So, HEEROS is predicted to breakeven approximately a couple of months from now! How fast will HEEROS have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2020? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 76% year-on-year, on average, which is extremely buoyant. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

I’m not going to go through company-specific developments for HEEROS given that this is a high-level summary, though, take into account that generally a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.

One thing I would like to bring into light with HEEROS is its relatively high level of debt. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, which in HEEROS’s case is 84%. Note that a higher debt obligation increases the risk in investing in the loss-making company.
