Expectations from some of the Australian Software analysts is that Family Zone Cyber Safety is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2024, before turning a profit of AU$11m in 2025. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly 3 years from now. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2025? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 64% year-on-year, on average, which is rather optimistic!
