Consensus from 2 of the Australian Online Retail analysts is that Mad Paws Holdings is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2023, before turning a profit of AU$1.4m in 2024. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly 2 years from now. 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 78%, which is rather optimistic! Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

Before we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 0.004% 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.
