Simply Wall St

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd.’s (TSE:TGOD): The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd., through its subsidiary, The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd., operates as a cannabinoid-based research and development company in Canada. The CA$996m market-cap posted a loss in its most recent financial year of -CA$13.5m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of -CA$33.4m leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on TGOD’s investors mind, I’ve decided to gauge market sentiment. Below I will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts’ expectations for TGOD.

TGOD is bordering on breakeven, according to the 2 Pharmaceuticals analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2019, before generating positive profits of CA$70m in 2020. So, TGOD is predicted to breakeven approximately a couple of months from now! What rate will TGOD have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, I calculated an average annual growth rate of 82%, which is extremely buoyant. If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, TGOD may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

I’m not going to go through company-specific developments for TGOD given that this is a high-level summary, though, keep in mind that generally pharmaceuticals, depending on the stage of product development, have irregular periods of cash flow. So, a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

One thing I’d like to point out is that TGOD has no debt on its balance sheet, which is rare for a loss-making pharma, which typically has high debt relative to its equity. TGOD currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
