Aduro BioTech, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:ADRO) latest earnings update in December 2018 signalled company earnings became less negative compared to the previous year’s level as a result of recent tailwinds Below, I’ve presented key growth figures on how market analysts perceive Aduro BioTech’s earnings growth trajectory over the next few years and whether the future looks brighter. I will be looking at earnings excluding extraordinary items to exclude one-off activities to get a better understanding of the underlying drivers of earnings.
Analysts’ outlook for this coming year seems optimistic, with earnings becoming less negative, reaching -US$79.8m in 2020. However, earnings are expected to fall off in the following year, before bouncing back up again to -US$72.7m in 2022.
Although it is useful to be aware of the rate of growth year by year relative to today’s level, it may be more insightful determining the rate at which the earnings are growing on average every year. The pro of this method is that it removes the impact of near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of Aduro BioTech’s earnings trajectory over time, fluctuate up and down. To compute this rate, I’ve appended a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 28%. This means, we can presume Aduro BioTech will grow its earnings by 28% every year for the next few years.
