We feel now is a pretty good time to analyse MoneyLion Inc.'s (NYSE:ML) business as it appears the company may be on the cusp of a considerable accomplishment. MoneyLion Inc., a digital financial platform that provides access to banking, borrowing, and investing solutions for its customers. The company’s loss has recently broadened since it announced a US$67m loss in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$136m, moving it further away from breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on MoneyLion's investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.

See our latest analysis for MoneyLion

Consensus from 3 of the American Consumer Finance analysts is that MoneyLion is on the verge of breakeven. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2022, before generating positive profits of US$20m in 2023. The company is therefore projected to breakeven just over a year from now. In order to meet this breakeven date, we calculated the rate at which the company must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 89% is expected, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

We're not going to go through company-specific developments for MoneyLion given that this is a high-level summary, but, keep 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 we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. The company has managed its capital prudently, with debt making up 12% of equity. This means that it has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
