According to the industry analysts covering OTIV, breakeven is near. They expect the company to post a final loss in -1, before turning a profit of US$0 in . OTIV is therefore projected to breakeven around a couple of months from now! How fast will OTIV have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by ? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 43.65% year-on-year, on average, which is extremely buoyant.

I’m not going to go through company-specific developments for OTIV given that this is a high-level summary, though, bear 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 I would like to bring into light with OTIV is its relatively high level of debt. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, which in OTIV’s case is 40.38%. A higher level of debt requires more stringent capital management which increases the risk in investing in the loss-making company.
