With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Synertec Corporation Limited's (ASX:SOP) future prospects. Synertec Corporation Limited provides engineering-based technology and services in Australia. The AU$29m market-cap company announced a latest loss of AU$3.4m on 30 June 2021 for its most recent financial year result. Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Synertec will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.
Expectations from some of the Australian Professional Services analysts is that Synertec is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2023, before turning a profit of AU$300k in 2024. So, the company is predicted to breakeven approximately 3 years from now. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2024? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 72% year-on-year, on average, which signals high confidence from analysts. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.
We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Synertec given that this is a high-level summary, however, keep in mind that generally a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.
Before we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. Synertec currently has no debt on its balance sheet, which is quite unusual for a cash-burning growth company, which usually has a high level of debt relative to its equity. The company currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
