eXp World Holdings, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:EXPI): eXp World Holdings, Inc. provides cloud-based real estate brokerage services for residential real estate market in the United States and Canada. The US$720m market-cap company’s loss lessens since it announced a -US$22.4m bottom-line in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of -US$18.0m, as it approaches breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is EXPI’s path to profitability – when will it breakeven? I’ve put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for EXPI, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

EXPI is bordering on breakeven, according to the 3 Real Estate analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of US$8.0m in 2021. EXPI is therefore projected to breakeven around 2 years from now. In order to meet this breakeven date, I calculated the rate at which EXPI must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 96% is expected, which is extremely buoyant. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

Given this is a high-level overview, I won’t go into details of EXPI’s upcoming projects, 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.

Before I wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. EXPI has managed its capital prudently, with debt making up 8.6% of equity. This means that EXPI has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital,and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
