Ooma, Inc. (NYSE:OOMA) is possibly approaching a major achievement in its business, so we would like to shine some light on the company. Ooma, Inc. creates connected experiences for businesses and consumers in the United States, Canada, and internationally. The US$312m market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of US$19m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$11m shrinking the gap between loss and breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is Ooma's path to profitability – when will it breakeven? We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

View our latest analysis for Ooma

Ooma is bordering on breakeven, according to the 7 American Telecom analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2023, before turning a profit of US$8.2m in 2024. So, the company is predicted to breakeven approximately 4 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 65%, which signals high confidence from analysts. 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 Ooma's upcoming projects, though, take into account 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. Ooma currently has no debt on its balance sheet, which is rare for a loss-making loss-making, growth company, which usually has a high level of debt relative to its equity. The company currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
