The expectations of some Swedish machine analysts are that OptiCept Technologies is about to break even. They predict that the company will suffer one last loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of 40 million crowns in 2021. The company should therefore break even in about a year or less! How fast will the business need to grow to meet the consensus forecast that anticipates equilibrium by 2021? Looking back at analysts’ estimates, it turns out that they expect an average growth of 89% year over year, which is pretty optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company could become profitable much later than analysts predict.
Since this is a high-level overview, we won’t go into details of OptiCept Technologies’ upcoming projects, but keep in mind that overall a rate high growth is not unusual, especially when a business is in an investment period.
