Moovly Media Inc. develops cloud-based digital media and content creation platform in Canada and Belgium. The CA$28m market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of CA$1.7m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of CA$2.6m leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Moovly Media's investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.

Moovly Media is bordering on breakeven, according to some Canadian Interactive Media and Services analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2021, before generating positive profits of CA$4.5m in 2022. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven just over a year from now. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2022? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 189% 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.

We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Moovly Media given that this is a high-level summary, however, keep in mind that by and large a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.

Before we wrap up, there’s one issue worth mentioning. Moovly Media currently has negative equity on its balance sheet. This can sometimes arise from accounting methods used to deal with accumulated losses from prior years, which are viewed as liabilities carried forward until it cancels out in the future. Oftentimes, losses exist only on paper but other times, it can be a red flag.
