When Will CAP-XX Limited (LON:CPX) Breakeven?

Simply Wall St

CAP-XX Limited's (LON:CPX): CAP-XX Limited, together with its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures, and sells supercapacitors primarily in the Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. With the latest financial year loss of -AU$2.6m and a trailing-twelve month of -AU$2.6m, the UK£15m market-cap alleviates its loss by moving closer towards its target of breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is CPX’s path to profitability – when will it breakeven? Below I will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts’ expectations for CPX.

Check out our latest analysis for CAP-XX

CPX is bordering on breakeven, according to Electronic analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2019, before generating positive profits of AU$100k in 2020. Therefore, CPX is expected to breakeven roughly a couple of months from now! How fast will CPX have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2020? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 112% year-on-year, on average, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, CPX may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

Given this is a high-level overview, I won’t go into details of CPX’s upcoming projects, though, bear in mind that by and large a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.

Before I wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. CPX currently has no debt on its balance sheet, which is quite unusual for a cash-burning loss-making, growth company, which usually has a high level of debt relative to its equity. CPX currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
