Farmers Edge Inc. (TSE:FDGE) is possibly approaching a major achievement in its business, so we would like to shine some light on the company. Farmers Edge Inc. develops digital agriculture solutions in North America, Brazil, Australia, and Eastern Europe. With the latest financial year loss of CA$85m and a trailing-twelve-month loss of CA$73m, the CA$407m market-cap company alleviated its loss by moving closer towards its target of breakeven. Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Farmers Edge will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” Below we will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts’ expectations for the company.

Check out our latest analysis for Farmers Edge

Farmers Edge is bordering on breakeven, according to the 4 Canadian Software analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2022, before turning a profit of CA$18m in 2023. So, the company is predicted to breakeven approximately 2 years from today. What rate will the company have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 109%, which is extremely buoyant. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Farmers Edge given that this is a high-level summary, though, take into account that typically a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

Before we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 0.6% 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.
