With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Access Intelligence Plc's (LON:ACC) future prospects. Access Intelligence Plc, together with its subsidiaries, provides software as a service (SaaS) products to blue-chip enterprises, communications agencies, public sector bodies, and not-for-profit organizations in the United Kingdom, European Union, and internationally. The UK£83m market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of UK£2.2m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of UK£3.5m leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Access Intelligence's investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

Check out our latest analysis for Access Intelligence

Access Intelligence is bordering on breakeven, according to the 2 British Software analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2022, before turning a profit of UK£3.8m in 2023. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly 2 years from today. In order to meet this breakeven date, we calculated the rate at which the company must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 55% 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.

We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Access Intelligence given that this is a high-level summary, though, take into account that generally a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

Before we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 0.1% 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.
