When Can We Expect A Profit From Biomerica Inc (NASDAQ:BMRA)?

Petra Goodwin

Biomerica Inc’s (NASDAQ:BMRA): Biomerica, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures, and markets medical diagnostic products for the early detection and monitoring of chronic diseases and medical conditions worldwide. With the latest financial year loss of -US$908.56K and a trailing-twelve month of -US$1.14M, the US$33.48M market-cap amplifies its loss by moving further away from its breakeven target. Many investors are wondering the rate at which BMRA will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” Below I will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts’ expectations for BMRA.

According to the industry analysts covering BMRA, breakeven is near. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2021, before generating positive profits of US$7.43M in 2022. BMRA is therefore projected to breakeven around 4 years from today. In order to meet this breakeven date, I calculated the rate at which BMRA must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 57.33% 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 BMRA’s growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, however, bear in mind that typically a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

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