With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Nayuki Holdings Limited's (HKG:2150) future prospects. Nayuki Holdings Ltd., an investment holding company, operates a chain of teahouses in China. The HK$13b market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of CN¥202m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of CN¥4.4b leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Nayuki Holdings' investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

Consensus from 10 of the Hong Kong Hospitality analysts is that Nayuki Holdings is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2021, before turning a profit of CN¥311m in 2022. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly a year from now or less! We calculated the rate at which the company must grow to meet the consensus forecasts predicting breakeven within 12 months. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 65% is expected, which is rather optimistic! 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 Nayuki Holdings' upcoming projects, however, bear in mind that generally 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 aspect worth mentioning. The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 0.008% of equity. This means that it has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
