Neil Montgomery

Gaming Realms plc’s (LON:GMR): Gaming Realms plc develops, publishes, and licenses mobile gaming content in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and internationally. The UK£22.54m market-cap company announced a latest loss of -UK£5.99m on 31 December 2017 for its most recent financial year result. Many investors are wondering the rate at which GMR will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” In this article, I will touch on the expectations for GMR’s growth and when analysts expect the company to become profitable.

According to the industry analysts covering GMR, breakeven is near. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in -1, before generating positive profits of UK£0 in . Therefore, GMR is expected to breakeven roughly a few months from now. How fast will GMR have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by ? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 43.30% year-on-year, on average, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, GMR may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

Given this is a high-level overview, I won’t go into details of GMR’s upcoming projects, though, bear in mind that by and large 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 GMR has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 23.13% of equity. This means that GMR has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital,and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
