HyreCar Inc.'s (NASDAQ:HYRE): HyreCar Inc. operates a Web-based car-sharing marketplace in the United States. The US$57m market-cap company’s loss lessens since it announced a -US$11.2m bottom-line in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of -US$11.2m, as it approaches breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on HYRE’s investors mind, I’ve decided to gauge market sentiment. In this article, I will touch on the expectations for HYRE’s growth and when analysts expect the company to become profitable.

HYRE is bordering on breakeven, according to the 3 Consumer Services analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of US$1.2m in 2021. Therefore, HYRE is expected to breakeven roughly 2 years from today. In order to meet this breakeven date, I calculated the rate at which HYRE must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 69% 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 HYRE’s growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, though, bear in mind that generally 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. HYRE currently has no debt on its balance sheet, which is quite unusual for a cash-burning loss-making, growth company, which usually has a high level of debt relative to its equity. HYRE currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
