Tesserent Limited (ASX:TNT) is possibly approaching a major achievement in its business, so we would like to shine some light on the company. Tesserent Limited provides cyber security consulting, cloud, and managed services in Australia and internationally. The AU$212m market-cap company announced a latest loss of AU$4.5m on 30 June 2021 for its most recent financial year result. Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Tesserent will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.
According to some industry analysts covering Tesserent, breakeven is near. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2021, before turning a profit of AU$9.7m in 2022. The company is therefore projected to breakeven around a year from now or less! We calculated the rate at which the company must grow to meet the consensus forecasts predicting breakeven within 12 months. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 59% is expected, which signals high confidence from analysts. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.
Underlying developments driving Tesserent's growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, but, take into account that by and large a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.
One thing we’d like to point out is that The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 29% 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.
