I’ve put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for OTIV, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.See our latest analysis for On Track Innovations
Expectation from analysts is OTIV is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2018, before turning a profit of US$125.50K in 2019. So, OTIV is predicted to breakeven approximately a few months from now. What rate will OTIV have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, I calculated an average annual growth rate of 105.31%, which is rather optimistic! Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.
Underlying developments driving OTIV’s growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, but, bear in mind that typically a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.
Before I wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. OTIV has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 40.12% of equity. This means that OTIV has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
