With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Omni Bridgeway Limited's (ASX:OBL) future prospects. Omni Bridgeway Limited engages in investing in litigation and dispute resolution matters in Australia, the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The AU$1.0b market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of AU$12m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of AU$47m leading to an even wider gap between loss and breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Omni Bridgeway's investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

Omni Bridgeway is bordering on breakeven, according to the 2 Australian Diversified Financial analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2021, before turning a profit of AU$263m in 2022. The company is therefore projected to breakeven just over a year from now. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2022? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 82% year-on-year, on average, which is rather optimistic! Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

Given this is a high-level overview, we won’t go into details of Omni Bridgeway's upcoming projects, but, bear in mind that generally 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 judiciously, with debt making up 22% 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.
