Check out our latest analysis for Payfare
Payfare is bordering on breakeven, according to the 5 Canadian Diversified Financial analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2022, before generating positive profits of CA$17m in 2023. So, the company is predicted to breakeven approximately 12 months from now or less. At what rate will the company have to grow in order to realise the consensus estimates forecasting breakeven in under 12 months? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 99%, which is extremely buoyant. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.
Given this is a high-level overview, we won’t go into details of Payfare's upcoming projects, though, 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.
One thing we’d like to point out is that Payfare 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.
