Cryoport, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:CYRX) Path To Profitability

Simply Wall St

Cryoport, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:CYRX): Cryoport, Inc. provides cryogenic logistics solutions to the life sciences industry in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. The US$351m market-cap company announced a latest loss of -US$9.6m on 31 December 2018 for its most recent financial year result. Many investors are wondering the rate at which CYRX will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” I’ve put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for CYRX, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

CYRX is bordering on breakeven, according to the 4 Medical Equipment analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of US$3.9m in 2021. Therefore, CYRX is expected to breakeven roughly 2 years from today. In order to meet this breakeven date, I calculated the rate at which CYRX must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 66% is expected, which is extremely buoyant. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

Underlying developments driving CYRX’s growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, though, 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 I’d like to point out is that CYRX has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 38% of equity. This means that CYRX has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital,and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
