Expectations from some of the Australian Software analysts is that Advanced Human Imaging is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2022, before turning a profit of AU$6.4m in 2023. So, the company is predicted to breakeven just over a year from now.

Before we wrap up, there’s one issue worth mentioning. Advanced Human Imaging currently has a debt-to-equity ratio of 110%. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, which in this case, the company has significantly overshot. A higher level of debt requires more stringent capital management which increases the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
