Consensus from the 2 Online Retail analysts is TENG is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2020, before turning a profit of UK£4.5m in 2021. TENG is therefore projected to breakeven around a couple of months from now! How fast will TENG have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2021? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 95% 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.
Underlying developments driving TENG’s growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, but, take into account 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 TENG 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. This means that TENG has been operating purely on its equity investment and has no debt burden. This aspect reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
