Some Zinc8 Energy Solutions Inc. (CSE:ZAIR) shareholders are probably rather concerned to see the share price fall 39% over the last three months. While that might be a setback, it doesn't negate the nice returns received over the last twelve months. After all, the share price is up a market-beating 50% in that time.

Given that Zinc8 Energy Solutions didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.

Zinc8 Energy Solutions grew its revenue by 50% last year. That's a head and shoulders above most loss-making companies. The solid 50% share price gain goes down pretty well, but it's not necessarily as good as you might expect given the top notch revenue growth. If that's the case, now might be the time to take a close look at Zinc8 Energy Solutions. Since we evolved from monkeys, we think in linear terms by nature. So if growth goes exponential, opportunity may exist for the enlightened.
