Concordia Maritime AB (publ) (STO:CCOR B) is possibly approaching a major achievement in its business, so we would like to shine some light on the company. Concordia Maritime AB (publ) operates as a tanker shipping company in Sweden and internationally. On 31 December 2020, the kr454m market-cap company posted a loss of kr66m for its most recent financial year. As path to profitability is the topic on Concordia Maritime's investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. Below we will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts’ expectations for the company.
Concordia Maritime is bordering on breakeven, according to some Swedish Oil and Gas analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2021, before turning a profit of kr49m in 2022. The company is therefore projected to breakeven just over a year from today. What rate will the company have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 62%, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.
We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Concordia Maritime given that this is a high-level summary, though, take into account that typically energy companies, depending on the stage of operation and resource produced, have irregular periods of cash flow. This means, large upcoming growth rates are not abnormal as the company is beginning to reap the benefits of earlier investments.
One thing we would like to bring into light with Concordia Maritime is its debt-to-equity ratio of 121%. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, and the company has considerably exceeded this. Note that a higher debt obligation increases the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
